The warm weather has finally arrived here in Nashville (please stay!) and we’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible outdoors. This is our favorite time of the year—dewy morning walks after breakfast, sunny picnics in the backyard, visits to local parks, and weekend farmer’s market strolls. The kids tend to want to get outside as soon as possible during the spring, so when the early evening hits we head back home and wind down just before dinner with some relaxing indoor activities. Puzzles, drawing, reading, and crafts are pretty much our go-to. We recently received a new Kiwi Crate delivery, which is always an exciting event. As I’ve mentioned before, Kiwi Crate is an award-winning subscription service that sends kids everything they need to make 2-3 crafts, right to your doorstep. It’s actually much cheaper and much easier than running to the craft store and searching for materials. Our kids love the activities in each box and we love any excuse to keep them occupied and using their imaginations. The step-by-step directions are simplified to make it easy for kids to follow along with a little help.
As soon as our new box arrived, the kids were dying to open it up and dive right in. Birdie wanted to make the My Frosted Cake project, which came with cute miniature foam pieces of cake, an apron and baker’s hat, clay icing, and bright cut-outs in shapes of candles and fun toppings. They iced their cakes with little piping bags full of pastel colored clay. Birdie helped Sailor with his and then added decorative white icing borders to the outside of the cakes—so cute! Then they added fruit toppings, stars, and different colored candles to their finished cakes and had a blast pretending to blow them out. They loved this little project so much!
Kiwi Crate has become a favorite pastime in our home—it keeps the kids busy and happy with unique crafts ideas that I could never come up with myself, and I love that there is very little mess to clean up afterwards. For moms with older children, Kiwi Crate offers projects for kids of every age. Plans start at just $16.95 a month and there is always free shipping with every crate.
