Kiwi Crate - August Box
The fish paper-lantern was easy and fun. It involved a lot of gluing but there was a general excitement about the end result. There is something magical about lights when your a kid... or a grown-kid, cause I loved the end result. It is only about 2 inches round, has a little light that will likely die within a few months considering how often my son turns it on. It also opened the conversation of paper lanterns, where they began, and what they are associated with in other counties.
The majority of this craft was decorating the sail and putting the pieces together. The rear paddle has a rubber band over it and you just twist it, set it in the water and let it go. Added bonus, the boats inspired us to take a trip to the lake.
Odin always enjoys the additional projects in the books sent with each crate; mazes, jokes, puzzles, snack ideas, easy science experiments, etc. After experiencing 3 crates, we will definitely be purchasing another Kiwi Crate subscription over winter when going outside has a limited time-frame and considering them as gift ideas for friends.
