As parents, we all want to give our children the best possible start in life. One way to do this is by encouraging their creativity and curiosity from a young age. One great way to do this is through the use of subscription kits for kids. Two popular options in this category are Kiwi Crates and Little Passport. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at these two subscription kits and explore the benefits they can offer to both parents and children.
Kiwi Crates are a monthly subscription service that sends your child a crate filled with all the materials and instructions needed to complete a fun and educational project. The crates are designed for children between the ages of 3 and 16, and are tailored to different age groups and interests. For example, there are crates for STEM, art, and even coding. Each crate is designed to be completed in one or two hours, and parents can assist their children as needed.
One of the benefits of Kiwi Crates is that they encourage children to be creative and think outside the box. The projects are designed to be open-ended, which means that children can add their own unique twists to the projects. Additionally, the crates are designed to be educational, so children are learning while they are having fun.
- REAL-WORLD SCIENCE: What could be cooler than building a domino run? Well, how about a friendly, wiggle-eyed robot that sets up your dominoes for you? Engineer your very own dazzling domino machine, then use it to lay out a variety of daring domino runs you design yourself!
- BUILD-IT-YOURSELF: From a handy-dandy mini screwdriver to an illustrated blueprint to a step-by-step online video tutorial for extra troubleshooting help, this crate comes with everything you need to build your domino machine — plus 100 wood dominoes for bringing your domino runs to life.
- DARE TO DESIGN: Learn how to build basic domino tricks (like curves, splits, and stacked structures) and about the importance of leaving safety gaps between your dominoes. Explore real-world domino art, then put your iterative-design skills to work by trying, testing, tweaking, and repeating your runs.
Little Passport is another popular subscription service that sends children a monthly package filled with fun and educational activities. The packages are designed for children between the ages of 3 and 12, and are tailored to different age groups and interests. For example, there are packages for science, geography, and world culture.
One of the benefits of Little Passport is that it encourages children to learn about the world around them. The activities are designed to be interactive and hands-on, which means that children are learning by doing. Additionally, the packages are designed to be educational, so children are learning while they are having fun.
- In the first month you’ll receive our weddell seals experiment kit, adventure-packed comic, Antarctica board game, and trading cards highlighting fun scientific facts.
- Your ongoing monthly packages contain everything you need to spark their natural curiosity, including hands-on science experiments, adventure comics, and trading cards highlighting fun scientific facts.
- Part of the magic of Little Passports is the excitement of receiving a package addressed to your child each month.
Both Kiwi Crates and Little Passport are great options for parents who want to give their children the best possible start in life. They are both designed to be fun and educational, and they both encourage children to be creative and curious. However, they do have some differences. Kiwi Crates are more focused on hands-on projects and STEM learning, while Little Passport is more focused on geography and world culture. Ultimately, the choice between the two will depend on your child's interests and what you are looking to achieve with the subscription.
