I love reviewing monthly subscription boxes. To me, its like getting a surprise box of chocolates. It may not be filled with what you would have chosen from the store but it opens you up to trying something new that you may love even more! Koala crate is filled with preschool activities that works well for toddlers too!

Koala Crate Review- Kiwi Crate Review
Kiwi Crate sent us the Koala Crate to review. This box is geared towards 3-4 year olds but I had my 2 1/2 year old have a go at it. Because her age range is under the targeted age she did need my help in doing the activities. I don’t mind this because I often use our activities as motivation to spend extra quality time together to build these wonderful and magical moments.

The box arrived on our door step and it was very cute and inviting.
Here is a quick glimpse into what was included. I love the little apron they included in this box and I can see this being used in many future painting activities. It was way too big for my 2 year old but it fit wonderfully on my six year old. (We have a petite family.)
I especially loved these mess free paint pens! I wish we could purchase this separately for home use. It was easy for little 2 year old toddlers fingers to squeeze and made virtually no mess.
I was very impressed with the paint markers. You actually squirt the paint out but it is in a convenient pen style to minimize mess. I LOVED this and so did the kids. They included one paint brush for the activity but I did have to add a few more brushes in so as not to mix the colors in our project. (That was a slight disappointment.)
Koala Crate by Kiwi Crate Review Activity #1
I ALWAYS place our art activities on a tray. The tray above is one that can be purchased from Ikea. This is a huge time saver when it comes to clean up and really lets the kids know where their area of mess should be contained to.
My six year old daughter saw this and wanted in on the fun so I used the leftover paint and tape to get her started. She was able to do this project completely on her own and the results were so beautiful.
Koala Crate Review Activity #2:
We placed the required sheet into our koala crate box and then my daughter squeezed out some of the colors. She then threw the wooden beads in and shook them all around. She found that so fun and exciting!
Then we opened the box and left it to dry overnight.
The next day we popped out the pieces and took out the wooden beads.
This was a fun and unusual project.
My Kiwi Crate Review 2016:
I can without a doubt recommend the Koala Crate and Kiwi Crate monthly subscription boxes. These boxes make crafting with the kids so much easier with a set guideline and all the required materials contained in one box. A one year subscription to Koala Crate or Kiwi Crate would be a wonderful birthday gift (imagine getting a birthday gift every single month?) How about a 3 month subscription for your child’s friend? These boxes would also be perfect for spring and summer break. I’m definitely going to be buying a subscription for us too!
I give this box 5 full stars and this is 100% recommended!
