Kiwi Crate Holiday Box Review – Gifts Made By Me

We took advantage of an unexpected nap period yesterday (my 3 year old never naps but he passed out!) to do this one. My daughter is crazy crazy about crafts and she was excited to get this started.

This box was wrapped in tissue and didn’t contain the regular information card with sticker.

I was impressed with the items in the box – it included two journals, a print paint roller, and printmaking paint! Unlike normal, the activities were labeled with numbers to do in order.

Good Reminder!

I was grateful for this note on the paint. Because I totally didn’t think about it. I’m one of those people that don’t read everything.

Printmaking!
Printmaking!

We had SO MUCH fun with this craft! She rolled and rolled and created tons of artwork to share. It was pretty simple – you tape a transparency to the kraft paper, roll out the paint, and use a q-tip to remove paint to make the picture. Then, you press the card onto the paint to create the print. The one thing we thought was missing from the instructions – it was helpful for us to have her draw a picture first and then look at her drawing while removing the paint from the transparency.  You can see from the photo above she was quite creative. She did want a journal to keep for herself, so my husband made a Christmas wreath print and put it on a journal just for her. She’s quite creative and her prints included: sunshine, self-portrait, hearts, cat, unicorn, and an angel holding the baby Jesus.

This was a great box and we’ll have fun writing (and practicing writing!) notes to the family inside the cards and sending them all out!  If you  are interested in a regular Kiwi Crate subscription, you can check out all my Kiwi Crate Reviews or sign up here!
