Thanks to KiwiCo for sponsoring this post. Get ready for summer break with these fun projects that they’ll never forget!
Have kids who will be home for the summer? Hosting a grandma camp for your grandkids when school gets out? Want to be prepared to squash the summer “I’m boreds” before they even happen? Then I’ve got the perfect solution! If you’re like me and have taken a shocking look at the calendar to realize…THE KIDS WILL BE OUT SOON…don’t fret! KiwiCo crates are here to save the day!
Get Ready for Summer Break with These Boredom-Buster Boxes
Be prepared to hit the ground running as soon as summer break starts by grabbing a KiwiCo subscription for your kids. I’m telling you right now, it’s one of the best decisions you’ll make. You can get a 3-month subscription just for the summer, or get an even better deal on a 6 or 12-month subscription. There are NO bad decisions because KiwiCo boxes are SO MUCH FUN!
They spark creativity (which is something kids today desperately need), engage kids in something other than a screen, and provide the most unique fun all in one box that I could never dream up for them at home.
Look at how adorable these crates are!
The Eureka Crate
Could your kids even imagine that they could build their own ukulele from scratch? Well they can! This was one of the coolest, most adorable crates we have got from KiwiCo so far.
Claire is 10 and did this pretty much ALL BY HERSELF!
She was grinning from ear to ear.
The Eureka Crate subscription is for ages 12-100 (but my younger kids can put them together too with minimal help) and has amazing hands-on projects that turn kids into engineers.
And the look on their face when they figure it out is priceless.
The more we can get our kids thinking, building, and creating, the better off this next generation is going to be.
If you have kids or grandkids, I HIGHLY recommend KiwiCo monthly boxes for the summer. They will leap with joy when a box shows up on your doorstep, and then spend all day long putting projects together and playing with them, giving you some much-needed time to get some things done.
And if you’re looking for a creative outlet this summer, KiwiCo has crates and projects for ALL ages! Even adults up to ages 100+ can enjoy them. (I highly suggest Maker crates!)
KiwiCo doesn’t just save kids this summer, it saves parents too!
The Ukulele Crate was such a fun one because she still plays it every day. So not only did she build an instrument, but she also gets to develop a talent over the summer. Love that!
Shop the Kiwi Store
If you’d rather shop a’la carte, then the Kiwi Store is for you! Here you can find solo projects and even bundles you can buy as gifts or one-off activities. It’s the perfect way to get ready for summer break!
We’ve tried lots of projects here, and they’re all so awesome, but a favorite has to be this domino machine. HOURS and hours of endless fun spent on this one!
Ask anyone on our HowDoesShe team and we’ll tell you that KiwiCo is honestly and truly one of our kids very favorite things. Our kids adore them every single time. KiwiCo just gets kids. I don’t know how they do it, but every project brings so much light and joy. It’s something no screen could ever bring.
Speaking of sparks…
Check out the Tinker Crate
This bottle rocket project from KiwiCo’s Tinker Crate was EPIC!! I mean, anytime something explodes, you have a kid’s full attention and this water-filled bottle rocket did NOT disappoint.
With a few fancy chemical reactions and water pressure, this homemade rocket launched a good 30 feet into the air! You should have heard the squeals of delight and laughter.
I swear they could have stayed outside all day launching and relaunching their rocket. I had to force them to come inside for dinner.
And that’s the magic of KiwiCo. It gets kids actively engaged and ignites in them a love for innovating.
It brings the science of their textbooks to life.
With KiwiCo, kids are having so much fun, they don’t even know they are learning!
