While I was doing my daily run through Pinterest a few weeks ago, I came across a company called Kiwi Crate. Typically they send out monthly "crates" chock full of materials and inspiration for kids to craft with on a subscription basis. There are so many fun projects and ways for kids to get creative with their Kiwi Crate.
Additionally, they also have a small shop where they sell individual projects for kids, which I thought would be great for small kids parties. Whether it be decorating their own cape, creating a flying comet or a cute fairy wand, there are several projects any kid would love to get their hands on.
We went for the "wings" project and were so thrilled by the cute crate that was sent our way.
Here is what we got in our wings crate:
Paper wings (two different sizes and colors)
A giant pipe cleaner
1 elastic band
Then we got to crafting! What I loved about this project was that kids won't be just making a craft that will hang forever on the fridge. These wings are not only a fun and easy way to keep kids busy, but will spark inspiration and curiosity. Kids can pretend to be a fairy, a bird or even a lady bug. The fun doesn't stop once the craft is over!
I especially loved the cute sentiment that came inside the instruction guide, "Everything you need to create your own set of wings. Put them on and see where they take you!"
This would be a great idea for a kids birthday party as well. Moms and dads can purchase a wings crate for each child (only $8 per project crate) and the kids will not only have a craft to do at the party, they can transform themselves into fairies and fly around the party with each other!
Though they might not all last forever and ever, these crafty wings definitely impressed us with their durability and longevity. They are well worth the $8 price tag!
