Koala Crate is a monthly subscription box for kids ages 3-4. Each month they send you a box full of play-and-learn activities plus the imagine! magazine, which was created in partnership with Highlights for Children. Each month has a different theme and this month was Safari. Here is what was in the box:
The first activity involved making safari puppets. There were five different heads and five different bellies that my daughter could match to the puppet. She actually did really well matching them and each belly had a different texture which offered a sensory experience as well. After we matched up the puppets I hid them around the house for her to find. She had a lot of fun with this. She was so delighted when she found one. She’s not quite three and so I made them really easy to find. Here is a picture of the puppets.
The Safari search came with a little checklist so each time she found a puppet we could check it off the checklist. I think she really enjoyed this game and especially that I played it with her.
The other game was a set of ten cards of each of the five safari animals with their heads and feet. The kids have the option of matching them up or playing memory with them. I left her on her own to do this and I thought I had a picture but I can’t find it. There is also a story in the Imagine magazine and other activities and games.
My three year old and I really enjoyed this box. I thought the theme was great and the activities were perfect for her age. I fully recommend this box. The cost of Koala Crate is $19.95 a month but if you follow this link you can get $10 off your first box. Koala Crate
