We have finished the main projects from our Koala Crate and Kiwi Crate boxes from April & I wanted to share how they went and how I felt about the projects included in our boxes for this month. Here are our KiwiCo reviews for April!

The first box that we did was the Koala Crate box, which is for preschoolers ages 3-4. I absolutely love this crate because they are able to get so specific with this small age group. My son literally just started telling stories and talking about sequences of events with us, and this box was perfect timing for him. He was so obsessed with this crate.
He loved getting the characters which he adorably called “friends” dressed, and he even matched their outfits to the weather on the scenes he used. I was pretty impressed, but honestly, his big brother teaches him so much.
Also, to be honest, both boys LOVED this activity, so just something to consider if you just want to subscribe to one box for multiple children. My older son definitely gets more detailed and dives in with his imagination for telling stories.
Overall, we were so pleased with our Koala Crate this month. Perfect for the age range, right on point with the stage of development he is in, and so much fun to play with again and again. There was even a little box included to house the magnets for your storytelling scenes.
Next, we did our main projects from the Kiwi Crate.
This arcade themed box was right up my STEM-loving boy’s alley. I don’t know that he could have done this totally on his own. This box is geared towards ages 5-8, so an 8-year-old might be more able to do the box totally independent. But really, I was just there to read and explain the instructions to him. KiwiCo made this a lot like putting together a puzzle and the instructions were so simple. I loved how everything was laid out, and that we had some extra pieces included in our kit, too.
He is going to love going around the house to see what all he can pick up with his claw. The rubber bands are the key to this claw closing on its own, and we have talked a lot about how the rubber bands are powering it because he lost them a couple of times. It really got him thinking about the mechanics of the claw and how it works.
He wasn’t too sure about making the pom monsters himself, but KiwiCo made it super easy. We loved these projects from the Kiwi Crate.
Our cat, Sheldon, says KiwiCo boxes are purrfect! Haha!
There you have a look at our projects from this month’s KiwiCo boxes! If you want to find out more about these boxes and what was included, I did full unboxing posts for the Koala Crate here, and the Kiwi Crate, here.
