What is Kiddie Kist? As per their website, “it is a monthly subscription for busy parents who want to boost their child’s intelligence and creativity.” It is geared for 3 to 8 years old. For me, it was a heaven-sent box of goodies during the December rush and my January bedrest period.
I normally do not like ready made craft boxes. Bakit? Kasi mayabang ako at maarte ako. Hahaha! Feeling ko I can do all those anyway by myself . You can see some of the activities I have made with the kids HERE. I am the first to admit though that planning activities (especially Jia’s Structured Learning Activities [SLA] while she was on therapy) is really time consuming. I was just so blessed that during the time that Jia needed SLAs, she was my only child. When Joya came I was more into Montessori so it was like whatever floats your boat or whatever I see at home. But during the past two months, life has just been so hectic and I was just super thankful that Kiddie Kist was there to save my sanity!
I will blog about our other Kiddie Kist activties soon but for now, will just tell you about our two latest crafts.
What I love most about our Kiddie Kist boxes is they do not deal with unreal stuff (as my kids are not allowed fairy tales, this is very important for me). The theme for January was all about self (well, the kid’s self). Although Joya is just 2 years old, he was able to do the activities as well so what we did was do two crafts at the same time — one for each kid, with me helping Joya, and J, my husband, helping Jia.
The good thing about Kiddie Kist is they send you the instructions through email plus they also have a Facebook page where the instructions are also posted. When you get the box, there are labeled plastic bags inside. Each bag is good for one activity.
For Jia, we did I’m Growing Up, a height chart making activity. The instructions are HERE.
