The second project was a small garden starter kit. This one was a bit more challenging and I assembled it with my daughter. The premise was simple but there were a lot of steps. We assembled the cardboard box and placed the plastic containers in the holes. The wood sticks which represented the fence of the garden were a bit tough to stick in the holes. What I liked was that there was no mess especially with the dirt! The dirt came in capsule and when water was sprinkled on them the dirt expanded so the seeds could be sprinkled in. The booklet with the instructions also had a few extra activities for my daughter to do and over the weekend she worked on coloring and doing the puzzles that the Kiwi Cate project provided. A few days later the grass sprouted which we were all very surprised to see!
I’d say that overall Kiwi Crate is a popular subscription box in this house. The activities are easy for kids to tackle themselves or with minimal parental help. I’m not crazy about the abundance of plastic packaging, does everything really need to be placed in separate baggies? I think those concerns are minor though considering this took up half a day and my daughter was happy with having mail and a project just for her to try out.
