Carter’s newest crate arrived and it was packed with exciting science. We love these so much. To hear my 4.5 year old talk about inertia was so cool!
As a quick recap, KiwiCo crates are age-appropriate boxes of activities curated to help parents and kids have fun learning at home. KiwiCo crates come in eight age ranges, from 0 all the way up to 104. Depending on the age, crates ship every month or every other month.
KiwiCo Kiwi Crate: Disk Launcher
Carter moved up to the KIWI crate (age 5-8) this month! This month’s crate worked on:
- motion and force
- mechanics and building
- following directions
The Disk launcher crate comes with everything you see here. There’s a project guide, magazine/booklet, and everything you need to create.
Two Disk Launchers
The kit came with supplies to build TWO launchers. I love this because they’d be great for siblings or friends to play also. Carter was able to do a lot of the building himself because the directions include pictures. Dad was more than happy to help too. 😉
After the launchers were built, I let Carter take the lead before diving into the suggested ways to play. I love watching his brain work! He loved the bullseye and quickly discovered different ways to stack the rainbow targets.

The crate also included extension ideas with more ways to play. We had tons of fun building clay targets as a family, which was a nice chance to discuss color mixing.
We’ve had our crate for several weeks now and Carter is still playing with it. I love how everything packs up neatly inside the crate for simple storage.
