The best way to learn about colors is to create with them! There are so many different crafts you could make to explore colors and color combinations, but Kiwi Crate makes it easy. We recently had a play date and used the Colorful Inspiration Crate to make three different crafts that the children played with for hours!
Note: This post contains a giveaway! For more information read my full disclosure.
You can imagine my girl’s excitement when the Kiwi Crate box was delivered to our door. They were jumping up and down and wanted to get started right away! It was like it was Christmas time.
We invited a friend over to make the color inspired crafts. Everything we needed to make three different crafts were included. Each craft came with an instruction card with suggestions and questions to ask your children and teach them more about colors.
Easy Color Crafts from Kiwi Crate
We made the Stained Glass craft first. It was perfect for my 5-year-old to do on her own. I helped the other girls cut the plastic colored paper into different shapes. We talked about how you can combine colors to make other colors, like blue and yellow combine to make green. Kiwi Crate included enough supplies to make 6 stained glass crafts. It took them about 30-45 mins to make. You really can’t go wrong with this craft. Any patterns and colors they use turns into a beautiful piece of art. When they were done, I hung them in the window to brighten our day!
Next we made some spinning tops. This was a very simple craft that let the girls experiment with the different color combinations that we talked about earlier. I showed them how to make different patterns and shapes. The girls were so excited to see what the colors would look like when they spun the top. They spent such a long time playing and enjoying these crafts that we had to break for lunch and a nap before we started on the last craft.
The girls woke up and we got started on our tie-dye bag craft. We used the tissue paper left over from our stained glass to dye our bags. I went over the primary colors and color combinations again, just to see if they remembered. They took turns squirting the tissue paper with water and watching the colors run together. This craft was really quick and only took us 20-30 minutes to complete.
After the bags dried, we took the paper off and a unique tie-dye pattern showed. My daughter was so happy with her “purse” that she carried it around for the rest of the day. For an extra bonus, we checked out the enrichment activities Kiwi had online that went with our crate. There was a list of learning sites, home experiments, and book lists to teach children even more about colors!
All about Kiwi Crate
After my experience with Kiwi Crate, I was impressed! This would make the perfect gift or preschool enrichment kit for any child because it’s not just about the crafts. It’s about learning, building confidence, and the memories that are made.
There are tons of different crates to choose from, each with it’s own themed crafts. There are even mini crates with one craft in each and party favor crates for birthday activities and favors. My favorite are the new Summer Discovery Crates for June, July, and August that start at just $16.95. These crates encourage outdoor fun and learning with themes like nature explorers, world of water, and fun with flight for ages 3+.
