Summer Idea {Kiwi Crate}

This is not a sponsored post and all opinions are my own. 

Summer's coming and we can't wait over here.  I want both of my kids home with me at the same time. I want breakfast on our deck and movies during the day with G and walks to the park and grocery shopping trips all together (I know--call me a masochist) and afternoons at the pool and projects at Georgia's art table.

I'm always on the lookout for innovative products to fill summer days, that while incredible, can get a little long on occasion.  And while we can dream up things to make and do all day long it's nice to have a pre-put-together project at times that reinforces academic concepts as well.  Enter Kiwi Crate.

My sister got Georgia a six month subscription to Kiwi Crate for her birthday this year and we just got our first one this week.  It's rainbow themed with at least four different projects to do that teach kids about the color spectrum with some science thrown in.

If you haven't looked into this subscription service for kids you should! It's gorgeous and the projects are so varied and fun to do together.  They ask some fantastic high level questions of kids in regards to why the results of each project are what they are and the projects scaffold nicely from one to the next so kids get a well rounded picture of the months concept.

One of the projects this month asked Georgia to construct her own top for a spin art rainbow craft.

Another one asked her to put little colored tablets in plastic cups (all provided for you!) and watch how the colored water travelled from cup to cup via paper towel--it was called "Walking Water." 

We've still got a few more projects to go to complete this months box.  If you're looking for something engaging and educational to add to your summer line-up I'd definitely include Kiwi Crate.  Everything you need for a handful of projects comes beautifully packaged in a box, the instructions are easy to follow, they each take about 15 minutes to complete (perfect for little attention spans) and it's something fun and different that you can do with your kids.  Georgia is six and seems to be a great age for everything in this months box--but I know she would have loved these projects as early as three too--she just would've needed some more hands-on mommy help.  

Summer's almost here! We can't wait!
