This month's focus was: bugs. "Eeeww! Bugs!" she exclaimed when I told her, but was instantly curious. Each month includes three crafts/activities, a parent manual and a learning magazine.
First, we made her felt cape and headband. Each month's crate is specific to your child's age-range, (from 0-16!) so it was easy for her to stick the dot stickers on the back of the cape in any order she wanted. She had fun running around the house and yard with it on, and pretending for her two kittens that she was a bug. Then, told them "I'm kidding! I'm A!" She turned to me and said, "They think I'm a bug, Mom!" with a huge smile on her face.
Next, we put together her ladybug pouch used to store her bug-eye prism viewer. I mostly did this while she started working on her memory game.
The bug matching game was already put together and just needed to be unwrapped. We started out playing memory but ended up just turning them all over and finding matches, naming each pair of bugs in the process.
I know what you're thinking: I received a year's worth of Koala Crates for this posting! Nope, not even a month's worth. We just really like it! I'm looking forward to having something on hand for her to do when baby arrives and she's out of daycare. Something fun, that I don't have to think about or plan.

When we revisit this box, we'll also spend more time on the magazine that it came with.
