Why Kids Love At-Home Adventures with Atlas Crate

Summer traveling may be postponed this year but you can still take your kids on an adventure around the world without leaving home! Our Atlas Crate projects are designed as immersive experiences to help kids learn about other countries and cultures, in a super fun way!

Every month, our team of Atlas Crate editors and product designers researches a different country studying architectural icons, natural wonders, geography, local recipes, and cultural traditions. Then they design each crate to include innovative, hands-on building projects, as well as games and fun facts that connect kids to inspiring new places and people. With crates spanning all seven continents, the result is an awesome adventure that brings kids around the globe!

Over the years, we’ve been delighted to see how Atlas Crate has inspired a community of curious, creative, travelers who love to learn and explore new things!

But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what KiwiCo kids have to say:

“The kids have been impatiently stalking the front porch for our newest Kiwico crate delivery. We signed up for the Atlas crate and it finally arrived today! They spent the last couple hours building a spinning globe, creating an adventure book and learning all about the seven continents. A fun way to travel while being stuck at home. As always we will be looking forward to our next box 🌍✈️”


“Even though our traveling is temporarily paused, (thanks Covid-19,) we can still learn about other places. We love how Atlas Crates ( by @kiwico_inc ) teach geography, culture, regional animal facts, and so much more. This month our crate was all about France. The crafts were fun, but our favorite part was the gougères recipe. It was easy, totally kid friendly, and made delicious cheese and egg puffs.

We might be a little stuck right now, but we felt very French while eating these gougères.If you’re bored, stir-crazy, or are looking for a way to supplement your kid’s learning, Kiwi crates are a great resource.”


“Konnichiwa! This week we are learning about Japan! On Wednesdays, Hunter typically has Go, go geo after school with Miss Barb. He loves this program and has learned about our state, the capital, and taken “trips” around the world.We learned how to say hello to friend in Japanese, “Yaho”, we learned how to say thank you “arigatou” and then we got a little exercise in with some karate moves before decorating a Daruma to play Daruma Otoshi. Next we will make a Koimobori, a flying carp windsock!”


“They loved their #atlascrate from #kiwico we had fun putting this together and learned a lot about the countries around the world! They even learned how to read latitude and longitude!”
