I had seen many advertisements and reviews for Kiwi Crate in the past. I’d check out the website, and the projects always looked really cool. So this year we decided to try them out as a part of our homeschooling plan and budget. We signed up for 6 month subscriptions. We ordered the Kiwi Crate subscription for our 6 year old daughter, and the Tinker Crate subscription for our 10 year old son. There have been some really neat projects so far (circuits, DIY pinball machine, slime, claw grabber, mechanical hand)!
Miss E (6 years old) likes her Kiwi Crates because “We get to build and keep really neat things”.
J-man (10 years old) says “They’re pretty cool”. That’s about as much of a review as I can get out of a 10 year old boy…
As a mom, I really like that the boxes come with full, illustrated instructions and all of the supplies we need to complete each project. It saves me a lot of time, not having to collect or purchase extra supplies. With a toddler running around, that is definitely a big plus!
To give an idea of what the projects look like and the level of difficulty, we put together a couple of videos of the kids making their projects. Hopefully it will help you to decide if it’s something your child might enjoy.

For those that are not a big fan of subscriptions, they also sell the project boxes individually.
