As soon as we got our most recent crate, Emily wanted to open it and get started on it right away! I guess I didn’t have a choice since she went and got it opened herself. :p

Supplies for My Polar Window Clings – I received an email saying some people write in about the 3D paint getting clogged, but I had the exact opposite with the first one I opened, and now we have a blue reminder of our fun crafting time. :p
???????????????????????????????

After the staining accident, I wanted to make sure that this worked before making more, so we only got around to making one snowflake. I forgot to get pics during the making of the window cling, but this is how it looks after drying on the plastic sheet.
???????????????????????????????

And here is how it looks when I take it off. I should have added more paint to make it thicker, and waited a little longer for it to dry completely (as you can see some of the white glue still there. But it does stick to the window!! We can’t wait to make more. 🙂
???????????????????????????????

Supplies for My Snowball Toss – This was super duper fun to make and play with.
???????????????????????????????

First was lacing the two felt pieces together.

Melody decided to come in to do it too.

And then, adding the pieces for the paws, claws, and ears.

We haven’t shared much about Kiwi Crate lately because we haven’t been doing them. *gasp* I know! But here’s the reason. Honestly, we are involved with many activities already, so it’s not realistic to do crafts in Sunday School, crafts in homeschool group, crafts at kids’ club, etc, and not have a cluttered home. BUT here is what we are doing! We are saving up the monthly boxes for play dates. Actually, on Friday we had a friend over to work on some projects and experiment. Another thing we did was give out a box as a birthday gift.

I am super excited about this month’s Kiwi Crate though!! The theme is Modern Art. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have been trying to be a “yes mom” more often, and doing art stuff is one of the ways of doing that. The girls are loving it and I love seeing their creative side.

Kiwi Crate: Family Game Night

So, you must have already noticed a trend in our Kiwi Crate posts. We always put together our projects in the evening after dinner. And I guess the rule around here is that you need to be in PJs in order to do the projects. :p Sorry for ugly lighting in the photos. It pretty much looks like that at our house after dark. Any house lighting experts out there who can help us out? 😉

Kiwi Crate #3 = Family Game Night (We LOVE games!!!)

All the materials you need to create 2 projects.

Project #1 = My Board Game – This one was very involved, so we worked on this last. Norm and Emily worked on separating the game cards, and Melody and I worked on putting together the board.

Coloring the board

Adding color to the wood block aka dice.

Still coloring the board…

All done! And we played a few games. 🙂

Project #2 = My Comet Toss – Norm and Melody worked on this one.

Sample Project = My Pop-Up Card for Valentine’s Day

Emily totally loved making this one for her friend. She did it all by herself! 🙂

Finished Product – Ta-da!

With the busy-ness of the holidays, we still have a few more activities to finish up from the Antarctic Adventures crate. Besides the 2 activities that you get in the crate, there are lots of additional theme-related activities that they suggest for you to do.

Doesn’t this look fun!? I can’t wait to play this game with the girls. The theme for January is Family Game Night. So fun!
