Kiwi Crate is a monthly subscription service for children that provides hands on activities. I recently had the pleasure of receiving the August box for evaluation purposes. This month’s theme is fun with flight. The box contained supplies for making  Rad Rockets and paper kites.

The kits are geared toward children between the ages of 3-7 and include supplies for 2-3 projects. They offer a variety of options for service. The monthly service is $19.95, but they do offer other options for a 12 month subscription the cost is $16.95 if you pay upfront. If you have more than 1 child there is even an option to add more materials for a “no fight” crate, the additional cost for that is $7.95.

From “Stompy Dinosaur Feet” to “Designing Flower Pots,” Kiwi Crate provides delightful and engaging projects to help kids explore, create, and learn.


I was extremely excited to try this kit with my 3 grandchildren they are 5 1/2, 4, and 3 years old. The first project we decided to do was the Rad Rockets. The children colored the rockets while my daughter, son and I tried to assemble them. The kids had a fabulous time coloring with the markers that were in the kit.

After they were assembled my oldest grandson tried to make the rocket launch, but it actually barely moved. He tried several times and was unsuccessful. It was ok though because the Rad Rockets looked cool. We then moved on to the kites. They were much easier to put together than the Rad Rockets.  Overall the kites project was undeniably more kid friendly. It was perfect because there were enough supplies in the kit to make 3 kites which was exactly what I needed. After the kites were together, we went outside to fly them. As you can see,  it was a tremendous success!

I love the fact that Kiwi Crate offers hands on activities for kids. Even though the rockets  were not tremendously successful,  the kites were awesome! We had a marvellous afternoon together playing with the Kiwi Crate. Whether you are preparing your children for school or are looking for new ways for your children to learn with hands on activities Kiwi Crate is a great option.

  1. Kites always reminds me of my childhood, it’s so much fun! I can tell by the pictures how they enjoy flying the kites! Too bad the rocket was unsuccessful.

  2. Interactive kits are always good! Kites are always fun–as long as it is windy out!!

  3. My kids always loved interactive kits when they were younger. It looks like the grandkids had a great time. We never had any luck getting kites to fly for some reason or we would accidentally let them blow into a tree.

  4. Wow! What a great subscription to join in on! My “baby” is now 22, but when she was younger, I know she would have loved having one of these come each month.

  5. What a fun box for the kids. A rocket? My kids would love this theme!

  6. The subscription wasn’t really bad, the kids enjoyed the gadget and as a mother you kinda fulfill something in there.

  7. I have always wanted to get one of these for my daughter.
