Kiwi Crates For Summer And Stay At Home Kids

Kiwi Crate Summer Adventure series

Whenever folks find out that I work full-time from home and have a daughter who is only in preschool 3 hours each day, they ask how I’m able to do it all. Honestly, I have no idea! If I were to sit and think about it, this arrangement is probably pretty much impossible. Fortunately it’s been working out really well for the last year and a half. Okay. Let me be honest. I do have some help. Coffee keeps me sane, and activities like Kiwi Crate keeps Ayva busy, which, in turn, keeps me sane. Sanity, folks. That’s the goal!

Kiwi Crate

Last year, my friend gifted me with a huge box of job security Kiwi Crate activities, and I’ve been sold on the arts and crafts kits every since. Kiwi Crate is a subscription service that delivers arts & crafts projects to your home every month. The projects are perfect for kids ages 3 – 8, and feature activities that integrate creativity and learning. The best part of the kits for me? Ayva can complete many of the projects independently! I set them up for her, read the instructions, and off she goes. I can get my work done without having to stick her in front of a screen, and she’s happy because she gets to make a mess express her creativity with fun projects. You don’t have to take my word for it, though! You can try Kiwi Crate for free for a limited time!

With summer fast approaching and preschool ending, Kiwi Crate’s role will become even more important. Not only will they be keeping Ayva busy, but they’ll also be saving us money. Kindergarten starts in the fall (as does 9 years of private school tuition payments), so we’re only doing 4 weeks of summer camp this year. The rest of the time, Ayva will be in Mommy Camp…powered in part by Kiwi Crate’s Summer Adventure Series. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
