The Tinker Crate line at Kiwico is for ages 9-16. This particular crate, the mechanical bird, could probably count as an engineering/art crate. This crate contains gears and paper/cardboard pieces to build your own bird that can flap its wings.
When I was a child I really enjoyed rocks. Whenever we would go to a mineral store or a national park I would buy a few shiny rocks for my collection. One of the things I always wanted was a rock tumbler to make my own rocks. When our second oldest son showed an interest in rocks we decided to get him a tumbler so he could make his own.
KiwiCo’s Kiwi Crate is great for keeping kids busy for an afternoon! First, they make the project in their crate (sometimes with help from a parent). Then, they can play with what they’ve made. Today’s project is the Cannonball Launcher Kiwi Crate.
The Kiwico Tinker Crate line is a great way to keep your kids busy for an afternoon. With projects for ages 9-16+, your kids will be creating, learning, and having fun at the same time! Today's Tinker Crate is the Glowing Pendulum.
