This month has been so busy with our trip to Disney right smack in the middle of the calendar! The weeks leading up to the trip were busy with packing, shopping, making lists and checking them twice… the weeks following have been spent in recovery mode, getting back into the swing of life, work, and church. Oh, and starting fertility treatment again! Woohoo! While we were gone, Zoey’s October Kiwi Crate came in and we didn’t get a chance to even touch it until last weekend.
October’s crate was a really fun Treasure Hunt theme! It was a more simplified box compared to August’s and September’s, but I welcomed it with open arms. Zoey enjoyed it, and I was thankful that it didn’t take as long to complete.
The first craft she did was the treasure box. I had to do most of the assembly, but Zoey put on the finishing touches. As usual, it came with some “extras” (in this case, extra stickers) just in case we need them later. Inside her treasure chest she put a miniature Belle figurine, a baby doll’s bottle, some lip gloss, a hair tie, and a bracelet. Some treasure, huh? 😉
The second craft was the actual treasure maps. The crate came with 4 different papers for her to draw on, each one with its own design, and plenty of X’s so she could “mark the spot” leading to her treasure. We sat together and mapped out her bedroom, and then she did her own version of our master bedroom, which was pretty hilarious. The best part was she drew all the clothes in our “closet”… such a creative little girl. She hid the treasure under our bed. Oh wait, I wasn’t supposed to tell you that…
As usual, we really enjoyed spending time together on her Kiwi Crate. As mentioned in my first Kiwi Crate review, they offer options for ages 3 to 16, and if there are siblings in the house, they offer to include extra materials for a nominal fee. With Christmas coming up, this is a great gift to send to a family member!
