My Little One has always loved doing crafts. I think that crafts are one of her most favorite things to spend time doing. The more supplies I make available, the more crafts that are created. Introduction of different supplies, allows for imagination and creativity to blossom.
One of the types of services that I really like that are on the market today are the subscription box crafts that you can enroll in. One of the latest subscription boxes that I put out on the counter to see what would happen was a Koala Crate. It took no time at all for a set of little eyes to say, “Mom what is this? Can I look at it?”
The box was open in a flash and creating was occurring.
The one thing about Koala Crates is that they offer a theme each month with guided crafts. Once the Koala Crate is open, everything the little one needs is in front of them.
The Koala Crate is recommended for ages 3 to four years old. The crate that we received was a farm themed crate and had small pieces that little ones could choke on so please be aware of any choking hazards for small ones.
For those that cannot read, they will need help with their Koala Crate instructions. So this is a great together craft to do with a parent or an older sibling.
I let my 9 year old loose with the Koala Crate and she had a blast. She is very interested in gardening as we grow our own vegetables in our garden in the backyard, so the farm theme was still of interest to her at 9 years old. She was able to sit down with the entire Koala Crate and build it through from start to finish.
The farm themed Koala Crate came with finger puppets that needed to be created, a vegetable garden that needed to be put together and planted :), and a very nice farm house. The farm house was a surprisingly strong cardboard and will undoubtedly stand up to play for quite some time. I was shocked by the durability of the cardboard.

I really cannot say anything bad about Koala Crate. They have a wonderful concept that keeps kids using their minds and fine motor skills all while being creative. I love it. If I was to ask one thing, I would wonder if the shipping box that is so durable and awesome, couldn’t also be incorporated into the craft some how? Having said that, it is not a necessity by any means because an empty box is fuel for another craft in our house. 🙂
Okay so I love Koala Crate and I am not surprised that it has won so many rewards and acknowledgements, but make sure you go check Koala Crate out yourself by visiting them here….
