–     Koala Crate is a newer subscription that is part of the Kiwi Crate Family. I subscribe to both Kiwi and Koala crate each month so that I have instant educational crafts  available when I get home from work.  We have had so much fun with both of these subscriptions.  I have wrote multiple reviews for both crates and you can look them up using my search bar on the right or you can click HERE for a past Koala crate review or HERE for a past Kiwi review.  Koala Crate is for ages 3-4, and I find both my four and two-year-old really enjoy this particular crate.

koala instruction July 2015–    Each month Koala Crate sends you picture instructions for each of your crafts.

Project One:  Easy Play Doh

Our Blue Kool-Aid Play Doh Ready to Go

–     The first project we worked on was the easy play doh.  I loved this recipe, you just put a few ingredients (all provided in your crate) in a bowl and you have instant blue raspberry scented play doh.  Koala also include a high quality mess mat, rolling pin and edge crimper in the box. B had so much fun, play doh is her favorite.

–     There were four mats included in your box.  You placed them under the mess mat so the paper would not get ruined.  If you look at the last picture of the ruler, you can see what happens if you play with your play doh without the mat on top, it leaves a residue.  This activity held B’s attention for quite some time.  We also played again the next day.  I love how engaged B was with learning her numbers and measurements.  We talked about body parts, fruits versus vegetables and so much more.  Right before this box was opened we read the book Press Here.  It was perfect timing.  She loved making her dots on the number mat below and it reinforced the terms we used while reading the book.

Project Three:  Number Games

–     B and  I already play and love dominoes so this was a nice bonus.

Bonus Item:  Imagine Magazine

–     Normally B does not sit long enough to explore Imagine with me.  She did this time and we actually went through the whole book.  We loved the find it pages.

Value:    B loves her Crates and I love how fun is incorporated with a great educational experience.  You really can’t put a retail value on a Koala Crate since these items were made specifically for Koala, but for $19.99 a month you really get your moneys worth.  I wanted to make more play doh for the kids so I tried a Jello Play Doh recipe and it was not nearly as good as the materials to make Kool-Aid The first project we worked on was the easy play doh.  I loved this recipe, you just put a few ingredients (all provided in your crate) in a bowl and you have instant blue raspberry scented play doh.  Koala also include a high quality mess mat, rolling pin and edge crimper in the box. play doh in this box.  I need to find where they get the activator from so I can make more.  Try Koala or Kiwi Crate now for only $10 by clicking on this link.  It will start a subscription but you can cancel or skip each month.
