Koala Crate is from Kiwi Crate’s line of crates and is designed for preschoolers ages 3-4. The box includes all the materials and inspiration for projects related to a theme such as colors, transportation or safari. Crates are designed to give children exposure to new materials and new concepts that encourage hands-on learning and fun.
Koala Crate ships via FedEx Smart Post and took about a week to arrive. Sometimes they ship mid-month and sometimes they ship closer to the end of the month.
I knew we’d have some down time up-north this weekend so I brought this up-north to work on. Don’t mind the floor in the pictures – it’s under construction.
The May 2016 Koala Crate theme is “birds” and included three projects “bird wings”, “bird mask” and “clay bird sculpture”:
Project #1 – Bird Mask
The first project we worked on was “bird mask” – “create a feathery bird mask with interchangable beaks“. The project was low on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved “discovering” and “creating”.
The mask turned out adorable! I love that the mask had three different beaks to use with it. It was easy to make and W (he’s 4) looked so cute!
Project #2 – Clay Bird Sculpture
The second project was “clay bird sculpture” – “mold your very own bird friend“. It was medium on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved “moving – fine” and “creating”.
I feel like maybe B (my husband) had a little more to do with sculpting this bird than W did ;). It turned out great though and W did tell me he did the eyes and the “flowers” (that’s what he called the feathers.
Project #3 – Bird Wings
The third project was “bird wings” – “design your own bird wings and pretend to fly“. It was low on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved ”
How cute is this? Seriously?? The boys said it was easy to make and W loved “flying” like a bird while it was on!
As usual, the box also contained an “imagine!” magazine. It has puzzles, stories, games and other project idea relating to this month’s theme.
What do you think of Koala Crate? I love that Kiwi Crate branched out into some different ages groups because this one is just right for W.
