KiwiCo Review: Will my kids like their KiwiCo box?

If you are wondering whether or not YOUR kids will like KiwiCo boxes…let me tell you a little about what MY kids thought…


We received a Tinker Crate from KiwiCo to try out with my 8 and 10 year old children.  This particular crate had a DIY Hydraulic Crane.  


Using the easy to follow directions and the included materials, my daughter’s had such a blast building different cranes and claws that they powered with their own hydro-powered tubes.  

There were several different options for ways to use the materials and once they went through the initial directions, they were able to go back to let their creativity dictate what they built next.


As a teacher and homeschooling mom, it was awesome to watch them first learn the fundamentals oh how the hydraulic system worked (including when my 8 year old accidentally sent water shooting across the room at me!)


Once the learned the fundamentals, they were able to easily apply that learning to make a whole host of other designs using the hydraulic tubes to power them.


The best part…this was just from ONE BOX.  Funding out that another kiwico box was coming the following month was met with cheers from my excited kids! 


That excitement is why I wholeheartedly recommend this subscription box for other parents!

How to use KiwiCo boxes to supplement your homeschool program.

Are you a homeschooling parent?  One of the challenges with homeschool curriculum, is that the science programs are not always as hands-on and exciting as our kids would like.  

If you would like to give your child more hands-on options for science learning or really step up your child’s exposure to art and design…KiwiCo is the perfect supplement to increase learning and engagement.  

The boxes can easily be independent activities or shared between siblings that are in the same age range for a small group project.


KiwiCo is perfect for keeping kids busy during summer break!

When summer is in full bloom no one wants their kids sitting in front of the television all day.  If you are looking for something to help your kids stay engaged and busy that doesn’t require you to constantly sweat your mascara off…KiwiCo crates are a great summertime activity for kids!
