KiwiCo Activity Kits for Kids

Creative Kids Activity Kits by KiwiCo This post contains affiliate links.

KiwiCo was built out of a belief in the importance of developing creative confidence. We believe that this confidence helps kids think big and act like creators and producers instead of just consumers.

Kids with creative confidence don’t assume one “right way” to build with blocks, paint a picture, or solve a problem. Their unique way is the right way!

Even if you have a deep appreciation for the creative, hands-on projects that encourage this kind of thinking, as a parent, it can be tough to find the time to do the research and come up with a great idea, let alone gather all the materials.

KiwiCo – Kiwi Crate Pinball

KiwiCo was created to celebrate kids’ natural creativity and curiosity, while helping parents who want to bring enriching experiences to their children. We want to make it fun, easy, and delightful for families to spend time building, exploring and creating together.

KiwiCo develops engaging hands-on projects and activities to spark curiosity and creativity in kids ages 0-16+. Every month, they deliver developmentally appropriate projects, inspiration, and activities and have shipped over 5 million projects created by in-house experts and tested by kids so hands-on fun and learning is guaranteed.

Our 5 subscription lines include:

KiwiCo Tinker Crate

Tinker Crate exposes kids to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through fun and accessible projects. We believe this builds creative problem-solvers and lays a foundation for critical thinking.

KiwiCo Doodle Crate– Loom Tapestry

Doodle Crate is as an invitation for young makers to express themselves creatively by introducing fun materials and interesting techniques.

KiwiCo | Kiwi Crate

Kiwi Crate encourages kids to build their creative confidence through hands-on science and art projects.

KiwiCo Koala Crate

Koala Crate gives preschoolers exposure to new materials, tools, techniques, and concepts that encourage hands-on learning and fun.

KiwiCo Cricket Crate

Cricket Crate delivers information, inspiration, and products that support young children’s healthy development and lifelong learning. Cricket Crate is grounded in the science of early childhood, but made helpful, practical, and convenient.

KiwiCo is offering Artful Parent readers 50% off your first month of any of their lines if you’ve been thinking of trying out a subscription! Just use code ARTFUL2018 at checkout. Click here to shop KiwiCo now.

Summer Giveaway by KiwiCo

    We’ve tried a Kiwi subscription box once and absolutely loved it!! I was highly impressed with the quality and amount of activities as I’ve been disappointed in other subscription boxes before! Would love to win a subscription for a friend too!
