What's Special About Green Kid Crafts?

Found by a Mom With a Mission

Penny Bauder wanted to spend time on creative and meaningful activities with her kids – but so many crafts seemed so wasteful and time-consuming to organize.

Boxed & Kitted With Love in San Diego, California

Each Green Kid Crafts box contains 4-6 activities and are carefully kitted by hand by our warehouse team in Sunny San Diego

Sustainable by Design

I've heard there are new box themes, how can I sign up for them?

We’re very excited to announce that we have developed 25 new STEAM boxes for our 2022 subscribers, starting this month! Fifteen of these boxes are designed for children ages 3-5, and 10 are for children ages 5-12+.

The boxes will be shipped through our subscription program, which is offered to two age groups: children age 3-5 (Junior) and children age 5-10+ (Discovery). You can sign up for 1-, 3-,6-,or 12-month subscription, and your child will begin receiving the new boxes monthly.

Read more about our announcement of new box themes here.

Junior or Discovery: Which plan is right for my family?

With 10 years as a leading subscription box provider we’ve got something for every family!

Discovery boxes are designed for kids ages 5-10+ and encourage experimentation in science.

Junior boxes are designed for younger kids 3-5 with a little bit more craft than science.

With 4-6 STEAM projects in each box, and with our 12-page magazine to guide learning, kids of many ages can enjoy and learn something new from every box.  The magazines will contain open ended activities intended as a jumping off point for creative and curious kids, and every box contains a range of simpler to more sophisticated projects. And we also provide families DIY extras via email to go with their monthly box themes, making the learning possibilities endless!

If you’re wondering about sharing boxes: boxes and activities can be shared if your kids are good sharers, for sure!  Some families appreciate each child getting their own box in the mail – and others the exercise in sharing.  Most importantly, our customer care team can always help to switch a subscription, if for example you find you’re ready to move from Junior to Discovery or vice versa. Just drop us a quick email and we can always help make adjustments to best suit your family.

What if I just want to try out a box before committing to a subscription?

We offer 1-month subscription options, so you can try out Green Kid Crafts and just log into your account and cancel if you wish to not renew.  We also have a number of single boxes available in our shop if you would rather try just one, that’s always an option too.

Good news! We offer 1-month subscription options, so you can try out Green Kid Crafts and just log into your account and cancel if you wish to not renew.  We also have a number of single boxes available in our shop if you would rather try just one, that’s always an option too.

What’s the difference between a 1-month subscription and a single box?  Our monthly boxes are made in bigger quantities, which mean they’re available at a consistently lower price ($29.95/box vs. $34.95/box).  In addition, our monthly boxes come with online extras where our team compiles a number of extra learning opportunities for monthly subscribers.
Join today and see for yourself, we can’t wait to have you in our Green Kid Community!

What if I don't know what box to choose for the recipient?

Good question! It can be hard to decide when looking at our shop – we’ve been making kids science and craft boxes for 10 years, and that means we have a lot of great box themes!

Our award winning subscription program delivers a different, new box each month and is always a safe bet.  Since our boxes have 4-6 activities each, and a 12-page magazine, and online extras delivered via email, we are sure there will be activities that are fun and engaging to every child in each box.

If you’re not sure whether a Junior (3-5) or Discovery (5-10) is right for the child, we’d recommend to start with the Junior.  At any time during the subscription, you can contact our care team if you would like to switch age ranges.  As long as the next box hasn’t shipped yet we can accommodate your family’s needs.

Another option is to gift a gift card, and let your recipient choose the plan that’s right for them.  We’re currently offering a holiday only promotion on gift cards: Get $50 when you spend $250.  This means your recipient will receive a $300 credit which should be good for a year of boxes of their choosing, even if they begin their subscription after our holiday pricing is off the website.  Use code HOLIDAYCARD at checkout and the discount will be immediately applied to your cart.  Free shipping to the US and International shipping is reduced and capped – we meet you halfway.  Shop Gift Cards

Are gift cards sent immediately?

Gift Cards can be electronically delivered immediately – or at a date up of your choosing – up to a year from purchase.  Simply select an amount, enter your message, enter the recipient’s email address, and you’ll be able to select the date you want to send them an email about their gift.  If you would rather inform them yourself or in another method (printed, etc) you can just type in your own email address.

Note: we’re currently offering a special holiday-only promotion on Gift Cards: Get $50 when you spend $250!  This means that when you select a gift card for $300, you apply coupon code HOLIDAYCARD at checkout, you’ll only pay $250.  The recipient will be able to redeem their $300 gift card for a year-long subscription in the new year even after our holiday pricing may be off the website.  Or, they’ll get to choose $300 worth of Green Kid Craft boxes of their choosing from our shop!

How can I bring Green Kid Crafts to my school, group, or organization?

We love working with schools!  And we love it when organizations make learning a priority for their employees!

If you need any support with Purchase Orders, just contact our care team and we’re happy to support you.  If you would like to place a group order, or learn more about options for your organization or school, please take a look at our group orders page that might contain the information you need to get started.

Are you running any special promotions right now?
