Toys. Toys. Toys. They are EVERYWHERE! Just when you felt you decluttered and got rid of enough, here comes a birthday or Christmas to just go and clutter it all up again. Well this past year I decided I had had enough. Instead of getting toys for birthdays, I got subscription boxes! Not only did the child not receive a toy (again) but they also got to look forward to it coming in the mail! One of the boxes I got for my niece (then my daughter) was the KidStir box.
If you are unfamiliar with kidstir, it is a subscription box that you can purchase that contains easy recipes for your children to make! As you know, if you have read my Kitchen Adventures post, I am pro kids in the kitchen. I believe having children in the kitchen develops the child in so many ways. Not only does it point them to independence, knowing how to cook, what tools they need, it also teaches basic math and reading skills AND when you cook with your child you are building a relationship with them. Development in children is great and all, but being able to strengthen a good relationship with my girls is certainly the most important.
What do you get?
Each kidstir box comes with 3 recipes, a little paper fun item that adds some pizzazz to the recipes such as gift tags, stickers or puzzle, 3 foodie educational pages about the tools or culture, a shopping list, learning games and some of their own kitchen gadgets to use in the kitchen. The kitchen gadgets are my daughters favorite because now she has her own “tools” for cooking. If you subscribe long term, you get a recipe book to put all your recipes in and add onto over time. This is so great because they can use that in their own cooking when they get older.
There is a theme to each box every month or if you only want to buy one box, you can purchase one of the special boxes (like the taco truck!).
For everything you get and the memories made the box is a good price. There is different pricing for the amount of time you subscribe.
My daughter always looked forward to getting her box in the mail. She loved putting her items in the shopping cart to create her very own recipes. As a parent, I love this because it allows her to get comfortable with new foods and tools in the kitchen. I also loved this because it kept the toy problem under control. This was a way for my daughters to learn and for us to make fun memories.
So if your looking for a Christmas or birthday gift for some child in your life, consider this fun kidstir box! Get three for an amazing price or even just one of the special boxes! It is so special for your child and you will love them too!
Kid stir just started a new subscription box called the Growing up guide. This box is designed for ages 5-10 and helps guide children in unique areas. These areas include emotions, taking care of animals or plants, caring for the elderly, manners and time management. This is a good way for your child to branch out and grow even outside of the kitchen.
