Crafting with Kids


Do you have little kids or grandchildren?  Or perhaps you babysit a lot? You are going to LOVE Kiwi Crate!


Crafting with Kids is one of the best ways to keep little minds engaged, happy, learning and growing. The problem is that sometimes crafting with kids can be frustrating if you don’t have all the supplies or directions. Or maybe you just don’t consider yourself “crafty” and you have no idea where to start.  I totally get that!

What if you could have a small box magically appear on your porch once a month that was filled to the brim with craft projects that your boy or girl would love? This box would have ALL the supplies necessary, even the scissors. This box would have easy to follow directions that kids over age 6 could easily understand on their own. This magical box of supplies would keep your kids entertained for probably over an hour with 2-3 activities for 2! (extra supplies can be added easily)  Wouldn’t that be great?  And the best part is they are engaged and learning while being creative!


Kiwi Crate can be delivered once a month or you can just purchase when needed. Kiwi Crate even has the coolest party favors too

I borrowed my girlfriends 6th grader, along with her friend for some craft time. These girls were darling and loved it. I was worried they may be too old, but not at all! They had a great time building their little farm plot, planting their seeds, creating their farm animals.

The girls gathered around the table ready to create!  They quickly opened the Kiwi Crate box and were delighted with the colors, the supplies and the variety.

With no help from me, they started to create their garden plot, complete with dirt, seeds and little garden signs. They clearly didn’t need my help, so my girlfriend and I sat down to relax and catch up a little.

Miss O had fun watering the “wonder soil” and watching it grow.

How adorable is that? I love that this creation is something that continues to bring engagement. How fun to watch it grow and then replant outside.

Time to assemble the farm animals. I thought these made fun finger puppets too.

Included with the supplies, we found record keeping materials to chart the growth of their new garden.

The girls had a great time!

My friend Cindy, quickly pulled up Kiwi Crate on her ipad and was already showing her daughter all the Big Kids Top Craft Ideas. She pointed out that Kiwi Crate is so perfect for taking on vacation or to the grandparents since it’s completely contained with everything you need in one little box. This is such a great way to keep the kids entertained while home or not at home!

Seriously……isn’t she darling? It was great to spend crafting time with such amazing young women.
