Creation Crate Review

Creation Crate: Electronic Projects Delivered Each Month + a Giveaway

I was a thirsty kid – I wanted to learn and educate myself about the world. The problem was that I wanted to do this on my own time and in my own way. I loved kits, and items that had all the materials I needed in one place.

Flash forward many years later and I still have that thirst, but have a world of technology and information at my finger tips. Many times it is easier to look up an answer or purchase an item than learn how to create it.

When I recently received a Creation Crate in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised by this electronics kit in a monthly box delivered to my door. 

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Creation Crate, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

I received a Mood Lamp Kit from Creation Crate that included the following items –

What is Creation Crate? Creation Crate is a monthly box full to tech education. Each of Creation Crate projects are a combination of building hardware and programming software. Each has a focus on helping to understand how each project works.

One of the coolest things is that each month, you’ll be given a new project that’s slightly harder than the last.

Each month all the items you need to complete the project are included in the box, which makes a perfect gift. While every box is going to be different depending on the project, there are 3 main components in each box which include – the UNO R3 (Arduino-compatible), which is like a pocket-sized computer, various components, and the instruction booklet.

The core sections of the instruction booklet are: Hardware, Programming, Common Errors, and Exercises. Each section contains detailed explanations of the steps to make learning accessible. In addition also included is a password to access a project support page on the Creation Crate website. Everything is included and the only other thing you’ll need is access to a computer with internet and a USB port.

The best part about Creation Crate is that while the recommended age is 12 and above the projects may be doable at a younger age with parental guidance. Also, it’s not just for kids. Creation Crate is for anyone with an interest in building electronics!

The available projects range from a Mood Lamp, a Memory Game, Distance Detector, LED Dice Game, Audio Visualizer and Weather Detector to name a few.

As a kid I was thirsty to learn, and one of my favorite items were toys and kits that taught me, so this is a great way to introduce kids to STEM in a fun way!

If you are looking for a unique monthly box, that is fun and educates, get a Creation Crate!

    I am not very creative. But I do love to create meals for my family. 🙂 I would give this to one of my kids who is creative.

    I love to make scrapbooks and soldiers using clay pots. I recently found a bunch of new crafts I can make with clay pots which I am looking to find time to try. Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity.
