I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m not crafty. Ok, it’s not that I do not enjoy crafts; I do not enjoy setting everything up and getting it all together. However, Kiwi Crate is changing my line of thinking when it comes to crafts
Recently, a box from Kiwi Crate arrived at our door. The name on the box – wasn’t mine! It was my little guy’s name. Oh, I can not begin to tell you how incredibly excited he was to receive a box – With his name on it!
He could not wait to tear open the box and was beside himself with joy, as I made him patiently wait (while I took pictures, of course!)
Kiwi Crate Supplies
When he opened the box, he was so excited to find a note about receiving his very own pair of scissors. Being the youngest, he is used to hand me downs and does not mind them. However, receiving his very own pair of scissors was just out of this world exciting for him. The box was full of everything he needed to make three robots. He could not wait to tear open all of the packages and take out the supplies. Honestly, he wasn’t the only one who was excited. His big sister begged to join in on the fun.
Kiwi Crate is More than Just Crafts
Two of the robots were made out of cardboard and fit over a plastic ready-made robot that allows them to roam around the floor. The third robot is made out of a tin box with a wooden (block) head and crafts sticks. It also comes with several boards that your child uses to move the third robot using a magnetic paddle. You can see these in motion in the picture below.
Unit Lessons with Kiwi Crate
While watching the first robot move freely around the floor is fun; this one is his favorite. I love watching him work on his hand-eye coordination while moving the robot around. This robot also triggered a great opportunity for a unit lesson regarding magnets. Yes, every Mom is looking for ways to intrigue their children’s interests to open up new opportunities for learning. What a great way to peak an interest. Using the Kiwi Crate system not only allowed us to learn about magnets, but about machines, building crafts (alone) and many other interests that were peaked.
