Our Free Kiwi Crate Came Today!

I was so excited when the kids and I checked the mail today because we had 3 packages, plus the kids had gotten a letter from their Papa in Mt. Airy.  He writes them about once a week and puts a little money in there for them, which they love.

I really like getting packages because usually by the time I get something, I have forgotten that I ordered it, so it’s a complete surprise!

While one of my boxes didn’t hold anything too exciting (a new battery for our camera), I was glad that some business cards came in that I ordered for the new MOPS group that my church is chartering.  Our meeting dates are listed on them, and we’re going to add some magnets to the back so all of the moms (the forgetful bunch that we are) can stick them on their fridges.

We also received our free craft from Kiwi crate, and we got right to work on it when we got home!  Kiwi crate is an organization that sends out boxes of ready-to-go craft projects for you to do with your kids.  I have been hearing about them for awhile now, but haven’t tried them out until this opportunity arose to get a free trial.  I’m really glad I decided to give them a try.

The free craft they are offering is the My Starlight Lantern.  I was really impressed with the quality of the products they sent, including a star-punch that we’ll be able to use for other projects.  They also included a book with other craft ideas and suggestions.

Here's what the box was like when we opened it.

Once I got the box unpacked, I had to stop what I was doing and lay Ms. Fussy-Bussy here down.  Naptime.

Charlie loved punching out the stars, I love the fact that we have an awesome new star-punch!

Charlie immediately took the lantern into a dark closet to test it out, and we very happy with the results.  The light actually shines through in the shape of stars.

Last night, he and Maddie had a “sleepover.”  We recently put another twin bed up in Maddie’s room, and they have been wanting to sleep together since then.  Last night was the night, and they had so much fun.  They told me that at some point in the night they got up and played.  I’m not sure how much sleep they got, because they are both obviously tired today, but it was worth it for the good time they both had!

Now Charlie wants Maddie to sleep in his room, so he’s saving the lantern for when that happens.  I just love the friendship they are forming!

If you want to try out this free craft, click here.  You will just have to pay the $3.95 shipping, which is a great deal!  This does only last until July 31, so you just have a couple of days to order.

I hope you have as much fun with your crate as we did with ours!
