KidPackz is a monthly delivery of school supplies. They send out things that your children might need for either home or school based on the grade level and gender of your child. They don’t offer a kindergarten box so we chose the Grade 1 level. They also include an educational toy in each box. For summer months they say they will include more games and toys instead of supplies. Boxes start at $15 per month but go down with longer plans. Shipping to Canada is $2.50 per box. I love school supplies and quite honestly could supply my children for most of their school lives but this will get us more things and provide both them and me with shiny new items to use.
Well after a few more months of not receiving this one and having them refund a few of them, a box has actually shown up. Once I got it open I saw that it’s basically the same as it is every time.
Another box of crayons. I’d be upset about this if we didn’t end up needing a new box of them every few months. This has just made it simpler. For the first ten times, we use them the box gets refilled nicely and then we just toss them in a baggie and hope for the best.
The markers I can do with them not sending again. Markers are a bit off limits for the girls so we now have three packs in a drawer for the future. I guess they’ll be useful at some point.
In the pencil case, which at least is more kid like than normal, we have the collection of erasers, pencil sharpeners, pencils, and a glue stick that normally shows up. All of these things are great to have on hand but I am especially glad for the sharpener and the glue stick. Those things seem to disappear somewhere.
This is a good notebook and if it makes it until one of the kids needs it for school, it’s fine. It will probably be put to use as scrap paper way before then though.
One shiny portfolio in pink…..check. I don’t know why they put this in the box but at least it’s pink and the girls love them.
The activity this time is a Sand Art Kit. I think this looks too difficult and messy for me to do, let alone my 5-year-old. I don’t care what that recommended age says. I’ll tuck this away and it may just become part of a birthday present for some other child.
As I mentioned above, I am surprised that they repeated so many items. I had thought they would send out a few things that are common repeatedly but not back to back months. The items are good and all usable. They did a good job making some of it items my girls are into and like. If you sign up now you can use the code “LAUNCH” to get 5% off your order.
