W, my 4-year-old, were anxious to get started on this one.

The January 2017 Koala Crate theme was “Baking” and included three projects: Chef Hat, Cake Box, and Measuring Fun.

Project #1 – Chef Hat

Chef Hat allowed your little one to design and decorate a chef hat with stencil shapes and glitter glue.  It was medium on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved “moving – fine” and “creating.”

W looked adorable in his hat (of course he did), but I wish the glitter glue were a tad bolder.  We had some trouble with the glue bleeding thru the stencil, but I feel like that may have been our issue and not so much a box issue.

Project #2 – Cake Box

Cake Box involved creating a colorful cake box that looks almost good enough to eat.  It’s medium on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involves “creating” and “moving-fine.”

I wouldn’t say that our cake book looks good enough to eat, but “decorating” it was fun.  We could have used a tad more glitter glue, though.  We had to do a “restart” on decorating, but we’d used almost half our glitter glue on the hat, so we were already running short.

Project #3 – Measuring Fun

Measuring fun allowed us to explore measuring with simple color-mixing activities.  It was high on the messiness scale, high on the grown-up involvement scale and involved discovering and communicating.

This was a huge hit! We used some of the baking cards to experiment, and we used some of our own ideas as well. We mixed color, measured, made bubble water and basically just had a great time!

imagine! Magazine
