When we were kids, our parents let us run wild in the backyard or the neighborhood during summer vacation. But after we’d exhausted ourselves with hide and seek and other games, we’d still have to come up with creative ways to fill our time.
Now in the age of 24-hour children’s TV programming and video games, it’s hard to pry your kids away from the tube or gadgets. But it looks like celebs including Halle Berry, Michelle Williams, Ellen Pompeo and Julie Bowen have figured out a way to keep their little ones engaged — and outside! — without high-tech electronics — Kiwi Crate‘s cool craft sets.
Recently, the subscription service company added the fun Summer Discovery Pack ($60) which comes with three different outdoor-themed kits. Our fave is the Fun with Flight version (below). Not only does it include a D.I.Y kite, but your kid can also study aerodynamics using mini spaceships. But what if science isn’t your child’s forte? Kiwi Crate also offers single kits ($20 each) that you can mix and match per their interests. Space Hero, anyone?
