Review: February Kiwi Crate "Around the World" Part Two

I had to break our Kiwi Crate Review into two posts because we spent too much time on the second project, I forgot to take pictures of the kids playing with it! It's not that the second activity took so long because it was hard or difficult, it was because the kids kept playing the game over and over and over. They LOVED it.

If you didn't see my first Kiwi Crate review post, I'll give you a little refresher

We opened the box and it came with two activities. We did the World Flags first and you can read the review of that post here.

The second activity was the World Map game. It came with a deck of cards and playing pieces. First Bear (with a little help from Mr Sunshine) punched out all the world landmarks and then added a piece of sticky foam and placed them on the map. Next he put together the game pieces and punched out the red circles. The game came with a bingo style card. The object was to use the deck of cards to visit the different continents and landmarks. It was quite fun! The map is now hanging on the boys' wall and they can play whenever the mood strikes.

Our overall grade for Kiwi Crate is: A+

Bear is a hard kid to impress and he has asked to continue receiving crates. I am an excited mom because I love spending time with him but I also love that he can do these crafts almost entirely on his own, it helps him to feel capable and independent.
