Make Your Own Fireflies- A Kid’s Craft from Kiwi Crate

Two weeks ago my kids received a package in the mail. Packages never come addressed to them unless it is their birthday, so you can probably imagine their excitement!

Their excitement grew when they opened the package and found all kinds of craft supplies to make some really neat projects.

The box was fromĀ Kiwi Crate- a company that organizes hands-on projects for kids and sends everything to your front door. You can pay per month, or buy a year subscription- either way you are guaranteed to have fun creating with your kids.

The first project my kids chose to make were fireflies. All the supplies were included and the kids had a blast!

{Sorry about the dark, blurry picture in the bottom right- I was trying to get a shot of the glowing fireflies, but the kids would not hold still!}

How cute are these? They are clear plastic bottles, covered in colorful squared stickers with a body and wings attached. Before you stick the cork in it (which has googly eyes- adorable!) you fill it with a couple glow sticks so the bottles are lit on the inside. Again, all the supplies were included, which made set up and prep a breeze! (I know I am not the only one who hates the prep of crafting with the kids!) This idea was actually thought up by Marie from Make And Takes- I love Marie!

Have fun creating with your kids!

Disclosure: I was sent a free crate to use with my kids and I was not compensated in any other way nor was I required to post a review. The opinion in the post are 100% mine.
