Kiwi Crate is a monthly craft subscription box for kids aged 4 through 8. Every box focuses on a different theme and contains a selection of fun craft projects and all of the materials needed to complete them.
In addition to their monthly subscriptions, Kiwi Crate also offers one-time purchase boxes including fun holiday-themed kits. They currently have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah kits, along with deeply discounted Halloween ones. I was sent one of their Thanksgiving kits for review, so…
Let’s see what’s in the Kiwi Crate Turkey Napkin Ring kit!
A look inside.
Everything was individually packaged and stuffed into one larger bag that was sealed with the Kiwi Crate kiwi bird sticker (I think his name is Steve 😉 ).
The photo above shows the complete contents of the kit. There were enough supplies to make 6 turkey napkin rings.
The instruction booklet provided easy to follow step-by-step instructions to complete the project. Helpful illustrations accompanied each step to make sure you’re doing it correctly.
The first step was to string the brown cords through the wooden disks.
The girls started off well, but soon got a little frustrated trying to get the cord into the small holes. They’re only 3, so I knew they’d need quite a bit of help for this project. It wasn’t difficult by any means… It just required a bit of patience, which 3 year olds tend to lack. 😉
The second step was to string 3 wooden beads onto each of the cords.
They did a lot better with this step, though there was still a little frustration when some of the beads were harder to push through than others. Again, typical 3 year old problems.
I tied the cords together to form a ring and then we had to apply the circle adhesives (shown in the photo with the wooden disks), then attach the feathers to them. The brown bodies followed, then the heads, and finally the faces.
Here are the headless, faceless turkeys. To make things easy, I had the girls choose which color feathers to use and I attached them myself. They helped press on the “bodies”.
The eyes were a bit tricky for them to apply, since their fingers are so small, but they managed to do a couple and I finished the rest.
The finished product! I kinda love the crooked eyes. 😀
While I did need to help the girls quite a bit (they’re still under the recommended age for Kiwi Crate), this was still a fun project for them. It helped them work on their fine motor skills and the end result was super cute.
You can still order this kit — as well as plenty of other holiday themed ones — in the Kiwi Crate Holiday Crate shop. Plus, this weekend shipping on all kits is FREE!
