I was so excited that I didn't have to think up any of this :). There were 2 complete projects in the box, with educational lessons, project instructions, and multiple alternate crafts to do with your supplies. I was thinking that Lucas would get bored with one project, work on the second one, then get bored altogether and ask to do something else.
He didn't. He kept jumping back and forth between the projects, and wasn't very happy when we finally put the box away... I think we worked on it for a little over an hour (naptime for the baby), and all we did were the main projects. We didn't even touch the alternates. The ideas in this crate could easily last us the whole month until our next crate!
|Scissors weren't needed for any of these crafts, but Kiwi Crate sent them as a welcome gift. The watercolors were the first thing Lucas wanted to play with.|
|Penguin Bowling!! Lucas decorated the penguins with the included stickers and drew faces on them (with the also-included marker). This penguin sees him with the ball (also included :) and is saying, "Oh no!!" This craft also came with loads of information about penguins and other activities we could do with the ball and penguins.|
|Aurora Australis (The Southern Lights). There were several postcards for Lucas to color with the pastels (the Lights) and then go over again with the watercolors. As I'm reading the information about the Lights, Lucas is saying, "Ooooh! Wooooow!" It's been forever since I've used pastels... I almost stole his postcards and made one of my own :)|
|I love how each activity first warns about the project's messiness, how much the child can do my himself, and what skills it uses/develops.|
