I'm a big fan of Kiwi Crate, and really enjoyed reviewing their Space Exploration Crate earlier this year. Delivered to your home monthly and available by subscription, Kiwi Crate provides fun craft projects that have all materials included.
You get to spend quality time doing fun projects with your children, and don't have to run around gathering supplies.
Growums Garden Kits
If you've followed my Gardening Blog here on The Rock Father, then you already know that we're big fans of Growums. These fun kits are educational and offer a multi-platform approach to learning the ways of gardening. Through all-inclusive kits available in six themes (Taco, Salad, Pizza, Ratatouille, Herb, Stir-Fry), kids can grow their own garden from seeds, then track the progress online while learning even more.
Turbo Man "It's Turbo Time!" T-Shirt (from JINGLE ALL THE WAY)
When people ask me what my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger film is, the answer is simple: the 1996 holiday classic, JINGLE ALL THE WAY. If you're like me, the perfect way to celebrate this cinematic masterpiece and seasonal treasure is to sport this t-shirt featuring the iconic "Turbo Man" in all of his glory. Want to stay even warmer? A hoodie is available as well.
gDiapers - Adorable Eco-Friendly Diapers (and more)
For the environmentally-conscious parent that's not quite sold on cloth diapering, gDiapers offers a full system of eco-friendly options starting with their gPants and biodegradable liners. They have cloth options as well, but at Rock Father HQ I go for the flushable or throw-away versions. Aside from diapers, they also make super-cute clothing including dresses, t-shirts, leggings, and more. The starter bundles and gift certificates are both great gift ideas.
Snowman in a Sack Kit from The Land of Nod
With winter almost here (I think we're gonna get hit hard here in Northern Illinois this year), the days of making snowmen are fast-approaching. The biggest problem with building a quality snowman is lack of supplies, as the traditional materials (corncob pipe, button nose - you know, like FROSTY THE SNOWMAN) are usually nowhere to be found in the modern home. Good thing that there's now a Snowman in a Sack Kit!
