I’m a good mum. But not the super mum. You know, the one who bakes elaborate birthday cakes, cooks delicious meals for dinner parties , sews Halloween costumes and makes DIY arts & crafts projects for her children.
I kind of feel guilty, especially because of the crafts thing.
As far as the cakes go, that’s what bakeries are for, right? The latest Wonder Woman costume, for her show in kindergarten, I bought in a store in China Town, but the crafts… I just don’t get them.
So if you are like me, fret not, there is a solution! And it is called KiwiCo. Even if you are the mum who bakes elaborate cakes and sews fancy party costumes (I admire you), check this out!
I stumbled upon a site online about membership crates that aim to inspire young innovators by providing them with diverse science & art projects. Those are colourful boxes packed with materials and instructions on how to create various seriously fun tasks. They are being delivered monthly to your door based on child’s age. When you order these science & art projects crates you have to indicate your child’s age, like that they are enrolled in a specific plan. For example my daughter is currently receiving Koala crates. They are meant for children who are 3-4 years old.
I am including the screenshot from their website with the available creates for various age groups. I highly recommend checking them out!
HOW IT WORKS?
First, you select the line, based on how old your child is. KiwiCo offers science & art projects to children of all ages!
After that, every month your child (children) will receive a pretty carton crates with projects that inspire children to become creative problem solvers.
Inside there are materials for three different science & art projects related to one theme. For example last month we received projects related to dinosaurs. Thea loves the dinosaurs so she was super excited to work on these creative tasks. The other science & art projects that Thea and I completed in the past were crates about rain forests, farm animals, rainbows etc.
The butterfly wings you can see Thea wearing in the photo above is the outcome of one of the projects inside the bugs and insects crate. She insisted on wearing these wings when going out and received a lot of compliments and smiles on MRT (subway in Singapore).
So while I am really not good at preparing crafts projects by myself I am grateful having found this membership.
We both look forward to receiving Koala crates every month. Her face just lights up when she sees that the box has arrived!
Oh and at least for a short while, my mum guilt hides away in a closet.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below! Happy bonding and creating!
