Most of the time, I reserve DIY projects for the adults, around here. But today, I’m excited to share some awesome craft projects for kids, thanks to the folks at Kiwi Cratefor all you parents out there.

If you aren’t familiar with this subscription-based service, let me give you a quick run down…Kiwi Crate is basically a craft kit for kids that arrives at your doorstep once per month. Each crate contains two hands-on projects, with everything you need to complete them (supplies, directions, everything). So you don’t have to worry about heading out to the craft store to grab anything. Pretty awesome idea, huh?

I received a kit in the mail not too long ago… Now, you know I don’t have any kids of my own, but you guys, I had so much fun making these holiday projects. I was actually surprised by it. I can only imagine what a blast these easy-to-make projects are like for kids. And actually, my little niece and nephew (ages 6 and 3) have a subscription to Kiwi Crate and love it. So, there you go. It’s a good time.

Here are the projects I was able to try out…

Aren’t these ornaments cheerful? They turned out very watercolor-inspired and (bonus) the containers are plastic, so they won’t ever break.

Here’s the little cardboard gingerbread house (above) from the kit that I decorated as well. So cute. I keep thinking about what a great gift this would be for a child (and his or her parents) during the holidays. And you can actually send a subscription or a Kiwi Crate gift card to someone you love during the holidays (or any time of year) right here.

There are special holiday crates available for the holidays and fun stocking stuffer ideas as well. Of course, if you’re already all set for the gift-giving season, check out the regular crates right here.

The last day to order with guaranteed shipping by Christmas is December 19th at 12 PM PT. That’s tomorrow peeps. So get on it!
