I'm a big fan of Kiwi Crate, and really enjoyed reviewing their Space Exploration Crate earlier this year. Delivered to your home monthly and available by subscription, Kiwi Crate provides fun craft projects that have all materials included.
You get to spend quality time doing fun projects with your children, and don't have to run around gathering supplies.
The folks over at Kiwi Crate (providers of rockin' crafts and activities for families) are having a contest for Holiday Crafts. It's their first "Creativity Challenge" under "The Studio by Kiwi Crate," and it's well-worth checking out for a chance at 11 prizes...
I really dig Kiwi Crate. First featured here on The Rock Father back in June and later reviewed at length, Kiwi Crate is subscription service that sends families monthly "crates" containing fun projects to do that "encourage key developmental skills, such as problem solving, creative expression, gross and fine motor skills and communication." Everything you need for the project is included. Now comes word that a music-centric crate has been created as a joint effort between Kiwi Crate and Carnegie Hall.
A few weeks back, you might recall that I mentioned KIWI CRATE as being a cool idea for busy parents. The basic overview is that for $20 a month (available monthly or by 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions), Kiwi Crate will send you and your child a selection of crafts to do - each carefully prepared and packaged with all the materials that you need to do them. You get to spend time doing crafts and cut out running around the store looking for all the different components, which could easily add up to $20 or more anyway. Each project is chosen by a group of parents, then kid-tested before they go on-sale. Well, Kiwi Crate was kind enough to send us a "Space Exploration" crate, and here's The Rock Father experience.
It's Babywatch 2012 here at Rock Father HQ, with just 24 hours until the delivery of Daughter #2. My wife is hardcore, so she's working regular hours today, then she'll get ready for the scheduled arrival at noon tomorrow. While we're counting down the hours, some cool stuff is still coming in for readers of The Rock Father, and the Kiwi Crate is one of those.
