For the holidays Koala Crate released a one-time box of a fun ornaments craft for preschoolers! Koala Crate is a monthly subscription box from KiwiCo for preschoolers ages 3 to 4. Koala Crate was created to encourage hands-on learning and fun. Activities are designed to be developmentally appropriate and enriching while also engaging, fun, and universally appealing.
The special holiday crates don’t have the normal magazine, just the instruction booklet.
Everything in the Crate. The only thing we had to add was something to protect our work surface.
The directions were easy to follow and explored the use of primary colors to create secondary colors.
The green ornament worked the best from the perspective of mixing the colors — the blue and yellow made a vibrant green.
The red and yellow made more of a lovely golden color than the expected orange. With the work surface protected, this craft was an easy one for kids to do, though some grown-up assistance was handy for getting the paint to cover the entire interior of the ornaments — we swirled it around using the marbles.
The red and blue combined to make a pretty purplish-blue.
Draining the sparkle paint and food coloring mixture from the bulbs.
After drying overnight, we stoppered the clubs with corks.
With a simple bow, bell, and pipe cleaner hook, we had beautiful ornaments! The swirling of the paint made the ornaments really pretty — the texture was slightly different opacity in different spots, looking a bit like real glass ornaments.
