This months Kiwi Crate December 2016 box review was the Arcade box. This post includes an unboxing of what is inside Decembers Kiwi Crate box as well as a closer look at each of the activities contained within the box.

Kiwi Crate December Box Review

This month we received the Kiwi Crate Arcade box. Here’s what is inside.
These are the items within the box.
The Kiwi Crate Arcade Box
When my 9 year old son found out that he would be building is very own arcade game he was so eager to start! He began by creating his hook. Then he created his ‘toys’ that the hook would be picking up.
The next step was to create the actual arcade box. I was surprised by how much my 7 year old daughter and 9 year old son worked on this part of the project. They both worked together (don’t you just love it when siblings play together without fighting). That was a definite win for me. They added all their stickers and finishing touches to the box.
I think it turned out really pretty. I also love that Kiwi Crate showed my kids a way to repurpose the box in a different way. This definitely made the kids think ‘out of the box’ to see the possibilities of any box that arrives at home.
Our Review and Thoughts
My kids loved the December Kiwi Crate box. They loved the arcade project and have played with this activity off and on for the last month (since they made it.) I also love that it needed minimal parent involvement as the activity was age appropriate for seven and nine year old children.
Please note that Kiwi Crate did not give me this box. I purchased subscriptions for a Koala Crate and Kiwi Crate Box for my kids.
