I recently received a package from a great company called Kiwi Crate. Have you heard of them? Well, let me tell you--they are awesome! Every month you get a new crate full of all the supplies you need to make some great crafts with your child. Everything in one convenient box delivered right to your door.
While the older boys were at school and the baby was napping Mr. A and I pulled out our crate. He couldn't believe that this package was just for him.
When we opened it up we discovered that we were in for some pirate fun! The crate had everything we needed for creating a pirate adventure: eye patch, pirate hat, parrot, treasure maps, flag, and even a treasure chest!
First we worked on the hat. After folding it up (with help from the great instructions!) we started to decorate. I held the stencils while he colored them in. He had a great time picking out the different shapes, colors and their placement.
And what pirate hat is complete without feather! They thought of everything!
We moved from project to project and A was just as excited about each one. And I loved it because all of our supplies were right in front of us!
He loved decorating his very own treasure chest.
And practicing his writing by spelling out every family member's name on his pirate flag.
It was a fantastic afternoon of crafting with my boy. My favorite moment was during his drawing he looked up at me and said, "Mom! I'm an artist!" Yes, yes you are.
Mr. A loved making some great pirate gear and I loved so many things! Aside from the fact that I didn't have to come up with an idea and gather all the materials, I loved that each project came with easy-to-follow instructions along with a "messiness rating"! And there were great tips like: put a brown paper bag under the flag when you color it because the markers will bleed through. (So much better than finding that out the hard way on my new table!)
Thank you Kiwi Crate! We loved our experience!
Don't feel like you can sign up for a whole year? Kiwi Crate just introduced single crates for just $19.95!
