We actually received this Kiwi Co Science of Trees crate before Christmas, but with the busy holiday season I’m just now getting a chance to share it. It was a big hit!
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.
Kiwi Co Science of Trees Kiwi Crate
Carter receives the KIWI crate for ages 5-8. This month’s crate worked on:
- Capillary Action
- Science of Trees
- Watercolor Painting
Literally everything you need is included in the box. It comes with all the materials, instructions, extension ideas, and a little informational magazine that Carter looks at over and over each month.
This is such a cool experiment and earns bonus points because it turns into a framed piece of art, which Carter gave me to hang in my office. If you’ve ever used food coloring in carnation vases, it’s especially the same concept. Carter was mesmerized! The kit includes enough to do this project twice, so the second time we mixed the colors to create new ones.
Balancing Tree and Game
At first glance, I wasn’t sure if Carter was going to be into this project. Boy, was I wrong! You create a little wooden tree and then play a game to add all the roots and leaves to the tree. If you hit a DISASTER though, you might lose some of your pieces. Carter’s favorite part is when an earthquake happens and he gets to shake the entire table. Very fun!
