My children have way too many toys that collect dust but an unquenchable desire for geography and crafts. So, this year, we are asking for a monthly subscription to Green Kid Crafts, which is perfect for ages 3 to 10.
Help! I am being swallowed in a home of overflowing toys.
I walk across the floor at night and whisper prayers that just. one. time. the kids remembered to put their toys… OUCH! Maybe next time?
I have them clean their rooms only to walk by a few minutes AFTER they are finished to find a box of toys dumped into the floor. And the battle beings all over again.
Then, there are the piles of toys in storage because my kids never want to get rid of anything even though they never play with any of it.
This year for Christmas, I really would like for our relatives to focus on subscriptions for kids because: 1) they are educational, 2) they are fun, 3) they hold the attention span over and over again for up to 12 months. And… no batteries are required.
First impressions of Green Kid Crafts
I gathered my three youngest children around for a LIVE unboxing. Their reactions and excitement are obvious.
There you have it! Even my oldest son (at 9 years old) thinks a monthly subscription to Green Kid Crafts is a great idea. I agree. We have enough toys in this house collecting dust, but the children never grow bored with crafty learning projects.
And allow me to be perfectly honest.
When I held this small box in my hands, I did not think there would be enough projects to share among my four children. Imagine my relief to find that I was wrong.
Plus, when I investigated the website, I was pleased to discover that you can add a sibling for $10 or less each month, giving you enough activities to share among the children.
Now, let’s talk about quality.
As a family blogger, I have seen a lot of monthly subscription services, and I know what to expect. Projects that are tedious with sub-par supplies.
Not with Green Kid Crafts! The box is void of cheap-o art products. You receive high quality items with no-fail craft ideas.
For each project, we received name-brand products, instructions, and information about the significance of the project. We even got a recipe card detailing several cooking ideas that kids could create and enjoy to expand the study.
I can see how these activities would fit seamlessly into a unit study. Just add a few books from the library and some printables from online. Done.
Stop. I know what your frugal mind is thinking. “I can just buy the supplies myself.”
That line of thought is just not true.
By the time you purchase everything you need to create the 5 to 6 projects in each subscription box, you will have spent way more money because with Green Kid Crafts subscriptions begin at just $17.95 a month.
More details about Green Kid Crafts
With Green Kid Crafts, choose a monthly science and creativity subscription and cancel any time. If you prefer a longterm subscription, prepay and save money with your choice of a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription.
Prices begin at just $17.95 per month for one child or $26.95 for two children.
Plus, subscribers have access to an “exclusive online collection of additional activities, reading lists, games, puzzles, and more each month, all centered about the monthly theme!”
Single Purchase Discover Boxes
If you want more control over what your child receives or are not interested in a monthly subscription, just shop the Green Kid Crafts store and choose a pre-packed box based on theme.
Some of the themes available include:
- Robot Workshop
- Ocean Science
- Music Science
- Backyard Science
- and many more.
The single purchase Discovery Boxes ship without having to wait for a monthly subscription to arrive so you can have the supplemental activities you need to fit any study exactly when you need it.
I guarantee that you will find a box to match every child’s personality and abilities.
Enhance Family Time
While these boxes will serve as excellent enhancement activities for any study, Green Kid Crafts provide educational, hands-on fun that the entire family can enjoy. This is not a product JUST for homeschoolers.
Each of our children were assigned a different project and then shared what they learned with one another. In my mind, this is a perfect family night.
In my opinion, each box from Green Kid Craft includes valuable lessons, easy but fun crafts, and hours of family fun.
