STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) is not my area of expertise, I really struggle with analytical subjects. But I want to give the girls the opportunities to explore these subjects to there full. We have just started using KiwiCo crates to explore STEM further and so far we’re really enjoying them.
Ava has the KiwiCo subscription and Bonnie has the Atlas subscription. The boxes are really neatly packaged and well designed, my only criticism is that they could perhaps use a little less plastic inside to make the boxes a more eco-friendly option.
Each on of Ava’s Kiwi Crates contains an engineering project. This is perfect for Ava to do on her own with minimal assistance from us. The instructions are super simple and she can follow them easily. She’s always so proud of her builds and uses them in her imaginary play.
I was really impressed with the quality of the materials, and there ease of use. The end result are really aesthetically pleasing, especially compared with other children’s projects.
In the Atlas crate that Bonnie receives each month is themed around a different country. She built this globe which sits on the dashboard of our camper van.
Inside both of the crates, the children get some really informative magazines. The atlas crate contains information cards about each country with fun activities to try, and recipes to make. You can build these up to make a booklet.
Overall I’m really impressed with the KiwiCo Crates, they are a fantastic way to aid our STEM learning at home and so much fun for the girls.
