This post is sponsored by KiwiCo., however as always, all opinions expressed are my own.
I first heard of KiwiCo. on one of my favorite podcasts, The Homeschool Sisters Podcast. If you’re a homeschooling momma you HAVE to check it out.
So I was originally inspired by our homeschool life to check out KiwiCo. because I love finding different elements to add into our days that aren’t from a workbook or on a piece of paper. We received our first KiwiCo. crate a few weeks ago and immediately I was hooked. The boys loved it, and so did I because it combined so many elements of STEAM into it. I was highly impressed.
Keep reading for a killer deal later on in the post where you can try a crate for FREE!
So what is a Kiwi Co. crate?
It’s an educational box that is delivered to your door that is stuffed to the brim with STEM goodness.
What is STEM you may ask?
Science. Technology. Engineering. Math. I’d also consider KiwiCo. crates STEAM as well — the A standing for art because there are a lot of creative elements involved too.
Why is STEM important for developing minds?
STEM offers children the opportunity to explore science, technology, math and engineering in a way that is fun and creative for them. While they’re piecing together a disc launcher or a arcade claw hand (just two of the projects we’ve done!) they’re engineering a science project and they don’t even realize it. It helps them to problem solve and get creative and how to get their fingers and minds to make this work.
What ages is it for?
And when I say all ages, I really mean ALL AGES.
KiwiCo. offers a variety of crates starting from infant 0+ all the way up through teenagers and adults.
Here’s a look at the lines they offer:
Tadpole 0+ – 36 months — Explore and Discover activities
Koala 3-4 years — Play and Learn Activities
Kiwi 5-8 years — Science, Art & More
Atlas 6-11 years — Geography and Culture
Doodle 9-16+ — Art and Design
Tinker 9-16+ — Science and Engineering
Eureka 14-104+ — Engineering and Design
Honestly, I looked into KiwiCo. as a way to supplement our homeschool, however, even if we weren’t homeschooling, I’d still be using these for the boys. They are the best way to get your little minds thinking and doing in a creative and simple way. All the supplies are delivered to you. There’s no trekking to this store and that store with a supply list trying to track down everything. There’s a booklet they provide that gives you every step by step direction for every activity, not to mention they provide additional projects you can do at home with things you likely already have on hand.

You can skip a month or buy 3, 6 or 12 month options at a time if you prefer.
I can’t say enough about KiwiCo. We love them and they’ve become a staple in our homeschool life.
