The Perfect Way to Explore, Be Creative and Learn About the World
Now more than ever parents with young kids are in need for new and fun activities around the home. Parents – it’s time to get creative! Or if you are like me and have exhausted all those options – look no further! Below are some of the best craft subscription boxes that will keep your kids entertained every month.
The best thing about a monthly craft box for kids is the educational value. The play-base activities encourage early childhood development in ways that are explorative and fun. It encourages creativity, problem solving and development of fine motor skills. It can also make a great gift!
Here are our two favourite craft subscription boxes –
1. Green Kid Crafts
Green Kids Crafts was created by a working mom and environmental scientist. Subscription boxes are based around STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math). Their aim is for children to engage through discovery, creativity and learning about the world around them. Products include STEAM kits, educational toys, eco-friendly toys, educational crafts and science experiments. There are various products addressing the different age groups of 2-10+ so you will be sure to find something for your child.
Products are designed with their panel of child development experts – parents and grandparents with backgrounds in education, art, engineering and science. And of course once each product is designed they must pass the toughest critics – the kids! They have a test crew of kids to make sure each product is fun, engaging and unique.
Also worth mentioning is that Green Kids Craft is a green company which obviously we love! From process to product their aim is to have as little effect on the environment as possible. So you can have peace of mind knowing the environmental impact is minimized and your kids can be engaged in nature in both positive and creative ways. What’s more is that for every order you place they plant one tree through their partnership with OneTreePlanet.
KiwiCo was created to celebrate the natural creativity and curiosity of kids all while helping parents to bring enriching experiences to their children’s lives. It brings all the essential materials and information together so you aren’t spending all your time researching and collecting the bits and pieces for a new and exciting project every month. KiwiCo wants kids to build the confidence to think big and act like creators and be unique in their own way. There is more than one right way to paint and picture or solve a problem!
KiwiCo products are separated by age groups. Our favourites – the Koala Crate (ages 2-4) and the Kiwi Crate (ages 5-8). The convenience of everything you need to create, explore and learn all in one delivered crate combined with hands on learning and discovery makes everything fun!
