How to Throw an Awesome Birthday Party with KiwiCo

Oct 5, 2020 / By Cailyn Bradley

We all want our kids’ birthdays to be magical and memorable, but let’s face it, planning a party for your child can sometimes be a bit of a struggle. There’s the sending of invitations, collecting supplies, searching for fun activities, and do we even have to mention the making of goodie bags? Oof. Well, some parents in our KiwiCo Community have shared how they managed to combine all their birthday party needs in one place — or rather, one crate!

Step 1: Pick the Perfect Party Project or Crate


The KiwiCo Store has STEAM projects to ignite amazing hands-on fun for kids of all ages! Take a spin with your little one to see what kind of project or crate catches their eye. Art? Engineering? Chemistry? We’ve got something for every kind of innovator. At the KiwiCo Store, not only can you pick your crate’s theme, but you can also order multiples of the same item so your guests can discover and explore together. You can either order them to your house for an in-person party or send them to your guests for a virtual celebration!

I just wanted to email you and thank you for everything – the parties went amazingly well and the crates were a HUGE hit!” – Sarah, Mountain View, CA

While sheltering in place, one mom reached out to the KiwiCo customer care team to ask about a bulk order for her son’s virtual 7th birthday party. She ended up sending an Atlas Crate to each of her son’s friends, so they could do an activity together, while apart!

Step 2: Attach an Invite & Send to Friends

“Happy Trails for Landry’s 2nd Birthday! How adorable is this invitation box that every kid received to be party ready.” – @cecinewyork

For Landry’s 2nd birthday, their grownups attached party invitations directly to the Koala Crate projects they ordered! We loved this personalized twist to make these party packages even more special, but if you’re looking for a lower lift, you can always send a classic email invitation and let your guests know that a KiwiCo surprise awaits their arrival.

Step 3: Celebrate & Create!

Whether you’re throwing an in-person party, putting together a virtual affair, or a little bit of both, KiwiCo gives all guests near and far a way to explore hands-on creativity together!
