KiwiCo boxes make learning at home fun!


With schools closed for the rest of the academic year and summer camps slowly, but surely, announcing their closures as well, parents everywhere are feeling a collective tinge of panic. While the closures are jarring, it all comes with the territory of navigating this new normal amid the coronavirus pandemic. We know that safety must continue to be the priority, but the thought of having our kids home with us for the entire summer is just a bit overwhelming. 


Over the last few weeks, parents have likely tapped every educational website or learning app while completely abandoning screen-time limits and any semblance of a schedule. We know you’re on the hunt for new resources that will keep your kids busy and learning (we are, too!). KiwiCo is one brand we’re turning to, to help our kids navigate the summer months at home. 


The company offers several different subscription crates that inspire creativity in kids and help develop their curiosity. Kids can build and explore on their own or with their parents to discover topics in STEM, geography, math, science, art and more. The crates are geared toward both early learners as young as infants and older kids ages 14 and up. They range from $16.95 to $19.95 and are delivered directly to your home every month


KiwiCo is also dedicated to helping families during this challenging time and has several at-home resources to explore on its site. Parents can get tips on explaining social-distancing to their children, as well as discover new science experiments, fun challenges and how to get the most out of their crates. 



With over 15 million crates shipped since its launch in 2011, it’s safe to say parents and kids alike love this brand.  


Below, check out the eight crates offered by KiwiCo to figure out which one is right for your family.
