A New Theme Every Month
Now with extras – designed for Kitchen Table STEAM Learning
Wondering what you’ll get in your box each month? Green Kid Crafts has been developing nature-themed Science and Art boxes for 10 years.
In addition to our monthly, award-winning subscription boxes delivered to your door, we share learning opportunities and activities – to your inbox. Families are appreciating the extra resources this year.
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 2-5 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 with our Kitchen Table STEAM program we provide families on top of their monthly box themes make the online 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.
We sure hope so!!
Shipping, like everything else about 2020, is unpredictable. We are currently offering a FREE US Shipping Upgrade on all orders to US Addresses!
Right now, our boxes are shipped in 0-3 days from the order being placed as our fulfillment team works hard to ensure fast shipping times. Transit times will depend on the state and country being shipped to – California residents can expect 3-5 days transit time, other US states from 5-10 days, and International up to 21 days. You can find a full list of countries we ship to here.
If you’re concerned about something arriving too early, don’t worry! Kids love getting mail, and they also love the anticipation of gifts to come – many families simply tuck the Green Kid Crafts box under the tree and kids get twice the surprise! And if you’ve decided to take advantage of our special holiday pricing and gifted a year-long subscription, imagine their surprise when they learn that there are 11 more to come!!!
While we’re not able to delay the first shipment of a subscription, you can have the first box sent to an address other than the recipient’s for safe keeping. Once you have received the first shipping notification you can login to your account and update the shipping address on file for the subscription so that all subsequent boxes go to the new address.
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 extras – our new Kitchen Table STEAM program is where our team curates and compiles a number of extra learning opportunities for monthly subscribers. So for example, when the box theme was Ocean Science, our subscribers not only received their box, but also got to ask questions to an Oceanographer LIVE and got access to many additional videos, podcast episodes, and DIY at home activities to keep learning. Join today and see for yourself, we can’t wait to have you in our Green Kid Community!
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 Kitchen Table STEAM extras, we are sure there will be something for every child in each theme.
If you’re not sure whether a Junior (2-5) 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
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!
We love working with schools! And we love it when organizations make learning a priority for their employees!
