Kiwi Crate Nature Box Review & Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Kiwi Crate. I was asked by Kiwi Crate if I'd like to try out their Summer Discovery Series Crate with my daughter Wynn. The strange thing was I was suggesting that my mom look into the Kiwi Crate that day for a possible Christmas gift idea. I'm always thinking months ahead when it comes to the holidays. This crate was offered at a perfect time. I know this will be something that Wynn will enjoy each month. I am offering a crate to one of my readers see the instructions to enter at the bottom of this post.

The month of June featured a Nature Explorer kit with two activities for ages three and up. The first activity Wynn and I completed was the My Collection Box and then we constructed a Starlight Lantern.  This kit really promoted outdoor activity and it was fun to do something different outside with Wynn. Here is what the kit looked like when we opened it up.

 Wynn loved the sticker and the coloring sheet on the back of the cover for the activities. The crayons were the perfect size for her.

 Next she decorated her my collection box with the stickers of insects and crayons too. We put a colored block sheet inside with cardboard separators. 
 Wynn and I went around our yard searching for items in nature that could fit in each square of the collection box. She mostly went for the flowers since we have a few different colors and she even ventured into our neighbor's yard for some purple hydrangeas. 

 She had fun walking around the yard with her box, and here she is waving to her Dad on the lawn mower as he goes by.
 Wynn's collection box was very colorful by the end of our nature walk through the yard. I think kids of all ages would have fun with this box.

 It was a little warm outside so we played memory with the really nice deck of cards that came along with it. There are many games you can play with this set.

 Then we used the star punch included in the kit to create this Starlight lantern. She enjoyed working with me to punch them out and attach the papers with the star stickers. The kit cam with a flameless tea light candle for the lantern. 
 As soon as we put the candle in the lantern we headed for every room we could find in the house that could be dark at 10 in the morning. Her favorite spot was the laundry room that had the stars shining through the onto our washer and dryer. We are excited to try it outside tonight when it is a little dark out.

Wynn had a great time using this kit. I would highly recommend this Kiwi Crate as a gift for another child or your own children.

  1. My son got the same crate and LOVED it! I would choose the Pirate Adventure crate for him; he'd freak out!!

  2. These are great! I had never heard of them before. My boys would love the Wind Power or Medieval Fun.
    These would make such a fun, different gift.

  3. I wish they were here! That is awesome, Wynn is so cute waving to her Daddy.

  4. ah, she is so cute! we just got the same one to review and emmy made the lantern so far! saturday night i have some ladies coming for a craft night so she is going to make her box then. :)

  5. Tessa picked the Farmers Market! I thought for sure she would go for the fairy one but she loves cooking so the veggies and apron caught her eye!

  6. Wow!! What a great idea and perfect for her age.

  7. What a fun post and giveaway! I LOVE kiwi crates. I love how they use everything, including the sturdy box in their activities. Looks like you and Wynn had a lot of fun. I would totally pick the fairy mean, Grace would totally pick the fairy box.

  8. I love this! Our little man is too young, but I would give my niece Juliana the safari box- she's obsessed with animals and loves practicing the sounds they each make! Haha :)

  9. Yep!! In love...we just had one delivered to your doorstep as well! EEEKKKK!!!

  10. I would pick the Pirate crate for Jack and Luke!! I'd heard of these but never checked into them. these are super cool! Glad Wynn had so much fun!

  11. What a fun post and Wynn is so pretty! Love her pink dress too...did you make it? I have seen the Kiwi Crates around blog land but hadn't really given them a lot of thought until now. I think it would be fun to do the pirate one with my grandson, he's a pirate nut lately.

  12. My son would love the dinosaur one!!

  13. How cute! So many activities! It looks like you and Wynn were busy all day long :) The shadow and light would be something my son would be interested in.
