But here’s what I’m slowly learning: convenience does have a payoff.
I tend to be the ‘pick myself up by my bootstraps’ type of girl. In general, I tend to think why let someone do something for me that I can easily do (or figure out how to do) by myself?
Christmas crafts? I got this.
But once I start gathering supplies, I realize I don’t have everything I need for the project in mind and the kids are gathered around ready to get their hands into some glitter. But I’m not ready. So we pack it all up and save it for another day.
If it’s a good week, I might remember to go to the craft store to get what we need, come home and prep it, and then invite the kids to take part. So…after the mayhem of dragging out supplies, caravaning the kids through the aisles of Hobby Lobby (which is almost more stress than a plane ride), the cost of supplies, and stress…a boxed kit is sounding pretty good right now.
What Christmas crafts does Kiwi Crate offer?
Kiwi Crate has some great holiday craft crates like making your own clay ornaments, a felt Christmas tree with ornaments, a cardboard gingerbread house with all the fixings (that won’t go stale or begged to be eaten), penguin bowling, and more.
And don’t forget to check out Kiwi Crate’s DIY craft ideas. They have a great gallery of do-it-yourself projects by age, theme, holiday with printable instructions. Look for the snow globe and Christmas tree hats projects, along with tons of other great ideas.
And what about Christmas gifts?
Kiwi Crate’s got you covered. Stocking stuffers? Yes…space mobile, a variety of dress-up kits, or race car among others.
Like a specific crate? Want to order just one? You can do that with Kiwi Crate’s single crates. Choose from a variety of crates like fun with flight, storytelling, castles & catapults, secret agent, or robot rally.
A gift subscription would be a great option if you’re looking for a gift that keeps on giving. You can choose from a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription.
If you already have a subscription you know how awesome the Kiwi Crate craft supplies are–durable and high quality. Consider giving art supplies as a gift.
Our family has really enjoyed our experience with Kiwi Crate and I’m looking forward to trying a few holiday crates with my kids this season.
