Kiwi Crate Fun - The Wild West

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Brettni asked if we would like to try out a Kiwi Crate for free and of course I said Yes! I'd seen her posts on opening hers with her kids and the crafts and activities looked likes so much fun for Mallory and I to do together. We got ours and finally had time to open it Saturday night and see what all their was.

She was a little excited and of course realized afterwards that I let her open the box upside down

The theme was the Wild West. Once we got everything out, we looked at it all and decided what we should do first

We chose to make the horse as our first project. I'll be honest. Thank goodness they make the instructions so easy that even I can do it.  

I did the beginning work of putting the horse together and Mallory followed up by adding the eyes, ears, nose and mouth

And here is the finished product. She loved it! She held onto it all weekend long! It had to go to bed with her Saturday night :)

Our next craft was making bean bags for the bean bag game 

Mallory got to help more on this one. She helped me cut, tape, put the cotton balls in the bags and put the stickers on the bags.

All done and ready to play

We had to cute a hole in the lasso so we would have a hole to throw the bean bags through.

She was so happy to take pictures of me throughout this process too

We found the perfect spot to hang it - on her play house. The hole in the play house fit perfectly with the hole in the lasso

We each took turns tossing the bean bags

Once she was done playing with the bean bags, Mallory went back and colored the coloring pages in her book and cut out some of the things they had. I was so happy they sent a pair of small safety scissors. I'd been meaning to get some for her but now I don't have to since it came with the box of stuff!

Thank you Brettni for sharing this with us! We really enjoyed it and played the bean bag toss again last night! So much fun!

Yay!! I'm so glad y'all had a fun time. Wyatt slept with his hobby horse the other night too!

Such cool stuff in this box - we still haven't found time to do it yet, but we NEED to! Liam and Mallory might need to play a friendly game of bean bag toss soon!
