Our December Koala Crate box arrived with eager anticipation. We normally receive our boxes during the week and the kids get to do the activities on the weekend. This definitely solves the “Mom! I’m bored” chant I here every weekend. Koala crate is a monthly subscription box that is geared towards preschool, kindergarten and elementary aged kids. You can find more of my Koala Crate Reviews here.

This post discusses the Reptiles Koala Crate Box.
I love that monthly subscription boxes make it easy to do fun activities with the kids without needing me to go out and buy all the materials required for each project.
Koala Crate Review – This December Koala Crate Box included three activities.
Activity #1 – Create a snake stuffed animal: This activity was most age appropriate for my 7 year old. She had to stuff the snake with the stuffing, then ad felt shapes all around it. She chose to do this as a pattern. Then she added the eyes.
Activity #2 – Create a turtle box: This simple activity was age appropriate for both my 3 year old and 7 year old.
Activity #3 – Color Changing Chameleon: My 3 year old daughter absolutely LOVED this activity. She had to place the insects upright on the table, aim and then blow them off. It was pretty cool and I loved all the giggles she had.
My thoughts on The December Koala Crate Box
We had a great time with the box. The snake activity definitely needed a lot of parent interaction with my 7 year old. My daughter had a difficult time stuffing the snake and needed me to help her. The other two activities didn’t require much parent interaction but I couldn’t help but join in on watching my little one blow the insect sticks down. I highly recommend this box. I have purchased a Koala Crate box as well as a Kiwi Crate Box for my three kids to share every month.
