Meet Green Kid Crafts
Green Kid Crafts is empowering the next generation of environmental leaders using creative, nature-based STEAM activities. Founded by mother and environmental scientist Penny Bauer in 2010, Green Kid Crafts has sold over 1.5 million boxes specially designed to help children exercise creativity, develop a love of discovery, and learn about the world around them.
Penny Bauder, founder and CEO of Green Kids Crafts, is an environmental scientist and leader in conservation, sustainability, youth education, and activism. As a new mother, she wanted her children to engage in creative learning, but was dismayed by the amount of waste generated by kid’s crafts. With Green Kid Crafts, she found a way to provide parents and caregivers with eco-friendly projects designed by professional educators that teach kids about the value of sustainability and a healthy planet.
In addition to her work as CEO, Penny is driving change at a policy level as a thought leader in environmental science. She is especially passionate about environmental sustainability, education reform, art and creativity, and encouraging women in the fields of science and technology.
Leading by example is the best way to help our children learn.
Through a partnership with One Tree Planted, Green Kid Crafts plants one tree for every order placed.
As a member of 1% for the Planet, we donate up to 1% of sales to environmental nonprofits.
Together with Carbon Fund, we offset 100% of carbon dioxide emissions produced by our business.
Eco-friendly practices are used as much possible to produce Green Kid Crafts boxes.
With Green Kid Crafts, it’s easy to encourage creativity, support development, and educate with STEAM activities (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).
Whether you are a parent, caregiver, or educator, connecting children with nature is important.
Let’s spend less time in front of the screen, and more time building, questioning, creating, inquiring, thinking, and doing.
We design each box, each activity, and each science and art experiment thoughtfully with the whole child in mind.
Each box is designed with the whole child in mind.
Create something I’m proud of.

Use my thinking brain.
Discover the world around me.
Care for myself, others, and the planet.
