Kiwi Crate Review + 25% off Your First Month

We were recently given the opportunity to review Kiwi Crate, a fabulous monthly subscription service designed for children ages 3-8 who love to craft!  Kiwi Crate mails a thematic box each month and in it you'll find two amazing activities that will engage your child and get their creative juices flowing! How ideal is this for these summer months at home?!

Upon receiving our boxes, which arrived quite promptly, we opened them up to find a wonderful cardboard green "Kiwi Crate" that contained all our goodies. Inside we were presented with a lovely welcome note and an awesome pair of quality scissors to use with this box of crafts as well as future activities from Kiwi Crate! The crate doesn't just come with two crafts inside, it's much more than that!  Our kids were pleased to find a little travel journal, "Summer Adventure Series", as well as a progress chart (where you can add a new sticker from each box completed) and a copy of Kiwi Crate's own "Explore!" magazine packed with little activities and fun things to read.  Sam loved the travel journal and immediately began filling it out!
The first craft in the crates we received was one of the cutest crafts we've ever seen. "My Glowing Campfire" is a create-your-own campfire craft that allows children to have a mini campfire and roast pretend marshmallows. This craft was perfect for our first graders, as they each successfully completed the craft independently with zero frustration using the instructions to model clay, glue tissue paper in place and assemble the campfire.  This craft even came with a small LED tea light to place underneath the structure to create a glowing campfire effect.  Although it required some hands-on supervision and guidance for our preschoolers, they were still able to construct their own campfires and so happy to be included.  Our kids were very pleased with all their creative work!  After finishing their crafts, they became such fun play toys!  Sam said he liked it when the marshmallows touched the colored tissue paper, as it made a "crackling fire" sound!  He and his sister proceeded to roast their marshmallows with plenty of giggles and smiles.  And Ruthie used hers as a nightlight for days, daydreaming of camping trips on the horizon.
Kiwi Crate has subscription options to accommodate siblings, you can either create additional subscriptions for siblings, share a "one kid" subscription and Kiwi Crate will send you a generous amount of materials, or try the Sibling Add-On option and receive a set of identical crafts for just $9.95 - a lesser cost than a full new subscription.  Our second craft activity was a great example of why having a sibling add-on option is important!  The second craft we worked on was "My Sunprint Backpack".  All of our children wanted their own backpacks, their own brushes, and their own stencils.  Kiwi Crate refers to the Sibling Add-On subscription as the "no fight" crate, and we couldn't agree more!  Having multiples of everything relevant for this activity made it an ideal craft session for siblings.  The "My Sunprint Backpack" was fun and easy; however, it definitely required parent supervision and step-by-step guidance with all the kids.  The directions for this activity were easy to follow and all materials were provided; for this craft we started with a small cloth drawstring backpack and painted it with special blue and green sun paint. We then laid the backpacks in the warm sun to dry with special stencil objects on top. This resulted in cool sun prints that our kids could customize any way they pleased. Our children will love these fun bags to tote around their summer essentials with and it's that much more fun knowing they are personalized and made with love!
Kiwi Crate is an incredible service. The activities are well prepared and laid out in an easy to understand way for kids. We love the educational aspect of this monthly service and it works for a variety of ages!  You can take advantage of an exclusive promo we have for your new subscription. Get 25% off your first month with code SEATTLE25.  Kiwi Crate comes once a month for a cost of $19.95 per month with free shipping.  Or, if you pre-pay for 12 months, your rate drops to just $16.95 per month. We think Kiwi Crate is an exceptional value and provides educational entertainment for kids. You'll love Kiwi Crate! *This post contains affiliate links, we'll be compensated a small percentage if you make a purchase through our links. Thanks for supporting SMDF!

Tea Collection Fall 2014 Review

*This post contains affiliate links, we'll be compensated a small percentage if you make a purchase through our links. Thanks for supporting SMDF!
Tea Collection recently released a fun batch of Fall 2014 styles, with bold colors and pretty styles, and we can't urge you enough to take a closer look!  We love that Tea Collection chose Germany as their newest inspiration destination.  We are always fond of European style, and we especially love the new nautical inspired items and lovely floral designs.  You'll also find quite a few bright colors that scream "childhood fun".  If you have a child who desires either a classic or bold look, you must take a look at the newest release.  We were thrilled when presented with the opportunity to freely review a few of the newer items, and we can't wait to share our thoughts with you.  Tea brings worldwide culture and modern design to children's fashion, and our Seattle families just can't get enough! 
The first item we reviewed was the darling indigo Lubeck Dobby Dress (instagram pictures above of two-year-old Leah).  This mini dress was named after a large city that's home to one of Germany's major ports.  This dress was an absolute favorite from their first release and it has been fun to own.  The most noteworthy things about this dress are it's delicacy and color; although it looks denim, it is actually a soft cotton fabric with tiny white vertical stitches.  This dress may require warm ironing, but the wrinkles seem to settle after some wear.  The seamstress engineering on this dress screams quality, and we will definitely take care in washing and drying this.  Leah first called this dress her "raindrop dress" because each tiny white stitch looks like a raindrop, the perfect verbiage of a Pacific Northwest kid.  If you're looking for a premium dress that isn't overtly noticeable, this is a great piece for you!  The color is also an important attribute of this dress, it's navy indigo color is stunning, the solid color with tiny white accents allows for versatility that can match most accessories and shoes.  We loved that the classic navy Hoy Salt Water sandals matched this dress perfectly!  We will definitely purchase other indigo colored items from the Fall 2014 collection, we appreciate that Tea often uses the same color scheme throughout each collection, making coordinating looks easy to achieve for families.

The next items we reviewed were the Blumengarten Flutter Dress and the Klaus Raglan Sleeve Henley in scuba. These items were chosen in hopes of creating a coordinating brother/sister set, and we are pleased to share that they look smashing together! The scuba blue of the boys tee is the same as one of the blue hues in the dress, so they complement and highlight each other nicely. Both of these items are ideal summer to fall transition pieces! The Blumengarten dress is a mini length, has sweet flutter sleeves and an adorable 4-button front closure.  This dress can mix and match with a ton of Germany items including various leggings and multiple layering options with the purity tees when the weather turns a little cooler. I'm already daydreaming about pairing this dress with Tea's adorable denim jacket and boots for Fall. But for now, it's easy to create a perfect summer look with red Salt Water sandals and bare legs. The fabric is a nice weight for both seasons and the color combo is equally flattering on blondes as it is brunettes. Check out Charlotte below, modeling her new dress and enjoying the warm Seattle summer. Put this dress on your list!
There are many stylish pieces for boys in the Germany release. Sam is wearing the Klaus Raglan Sleeve Henley in scuba. This top is very versatile! The 3/4 length sleeves are literally the perfect in-between length to keep him cozy on cool nights, but not too hot during warm days. The scuba blue is a great combo with the grey sleeves, ready to pair up with jeans, khakis or handsome shorts and flip flops in the summertime. The Klaus Henley is made of a super soft slub-knit cotton that we know will wash well and look great throughout the season. We just adore this classic baseball henley look for boys, and now with the 3/4 sleeves - you can't beat the hip factor on this top (we're happy it's available in four color combos). This is a must for your handsome guy!
Here you can see how these two pieces complement each other as a super cute brother/sister set. We cannot get enough of the Germany collection and can't wait to see what comes out next! 
Be sure to check out all the fabulous footwear for girls and boys available through Tea Collection's website as well. Our faves for girls are the Toke mary janes. And the boys can wear durable Umi shoes to compliment their outfits.  Tea always selects a variety of shoes in colors that match many of the Tea wardrobe sets, making it easy to outfit your child from head to toe with just a few clicks.  Check out Tea Collection today, you won't be disappointed!  And be sure to "Like" Tea Collection on Facebook, they often share FB exclusive offers, giveaways and contest information!
