With our hectic weeks and very long days, it’s difficult for us to have a chance to sit down with the kids and do a fun activity. Even though the weekend/school breaks are often reserved for playtime, every now and then we love to sneak in a fun learning activity.
One of our favorite ways to do this is by letting the kids complete fun and age-appropriate STEAM activity crate from KiwiCo.
KiwiCo inspires kids to see themselves as makers and to develop creative confidence to change the world through engineering and creating their own innovative designs and outcomes. These amazing projects not only empower kids to start a project and complete it, but it also teaches them to make a difference.
The weekends are the perfect time for our six kiddos to sit around and complete a fun and innovative project!
Another big plus is that all of the projects come with everything you need in the box! No last-minute trips to the store, no frantically checking the obligatory kitchen junk drawer for batteries, paper, or scissors. Everything needed is in the box!
Our son loves to create. Since he is very hands-on, and loves to tinker and build, a subscription box to KiwiCo is perfect for him! KiwiCo is a monthly subscription crate that comes filled with age-appropriate STEAM projects for kids, from toddlers to teenagers.
Each box comes with a preselected activity, as well as materials and a booklet with everything needed to create the project. KiwiCo isn’t just for older children either.
There are several crates and each one comes with an age-appropriate activity for that specified age group. The Panda Crate (0-24 months) includes information, inspiration, and products that help with your toddler’s development and creativity.
- The Panda Crate (0-24 months) includes information, inspiration, and products that help with your toddler’s development and creativity.
