Little McGifty doesn’t spend an inordinate amount of time on devices, but… given her druthers, she’d spend hours in her room, learning sassy attitude-laden phrases from Disney Channel shows.  I was so happy to get a chance to try out Kiwi Crate, each kit contains the makings of 2 to 3 crafts and every month, the themes change from dinosaurs to space adventures to gardening.  I can honestly say that this is going to be one of my go-to gifts for 2014.

I loved how Little McGifty dove into the project and the smile on her face when she finished… kinda, sorta priceless.

I’m not the craftiest person in the world — and when I do come up with an idea — I’m thwarted by the fact that there isn’t a good art supply or crafts shop in my little town.  I’m excited about getting a monthly Kiwi Crate subscription for my kid, and I’ll be giving individual crates and 3 month subcriptions to the little kids in my life into the new year.
