Kiwi Crate Crafts, Part Deux
31 October 2014
(Again, this post and that last one were not compensated posts; I just want to share!)
We did the second set of Kiwi Crates today. I had planned to save all six boxes for Advent, but the kids saw them, and that plan went right out the window. Ah, well.
Jack's second Crate was Fun With Flight, which included a rocket craft and a flying kite craft.
I didn't help the kids at all, and perhaps I should have, because there was a bit of difficulty with this. It didn't "rocket" off the base, and he was so pissy bummed about it, he refused to even try the kites activity. Perhaps we can try it another day?
Sophie's Crate was Wild Safari, which included My Safari Jeep and My Safari Search.
The Jeep gave her a bit of trouble at first, but I encouraged her to put it aside and stop thinking about it, going instead to the second activity. By George, it seems to have done the trick!
She had great fun making, arranging, and rearranging her safari animals! She created the stamps herself, and in the blink of an eye, she was finished. I think these critters will be sticking around for a while.
(Also, she had some Webkinz cats that made an appearance and took a ride around in the Jeep. Or two. Or ten.)
Curls' Crate, Around the World, included a flag banner and a world map game.
The banner was really fun to make, and she did a great job, I think. She's a perfectionist like her mom, though, so she kept complaining about minor flaws in her work. :(
The map craft included a fun game, and all three kids played a kind of geography BINGO together. When Victoria joins us next week, maybe she'll play, too.
Overall, it was a great set of Kiwi Crates - and if you'd like a free $10 toward your first order, click on over here to get it!
