Award-Winning Kids Activity Subscription

Early hands-on learning, with a focus on creativity and exploration has always been important. During the pandemic, research has shown there’s been a significant loss of learning opportunities for children in general.

Our activity box subscriptions are designed with new themes designed to encourage kids to explore their environment, inspire a love of nature, and get away from screens. Designed by STEAM experts (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) the activities included promote growth of the “whole child”.

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

Green Kid Crafts is a green and sustainable business, drawing from Penny’s experiences as an environmental scientist, pictured here researching in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska.

FAQs

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

With 10 years as a leading kids monthly 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 makes 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 at [email protected] and we can always help make adjustments to best suit your family.

Can we try out a box before subscribing?

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 kids subscription 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!

Are the boxes more art or science?

Good question, and the answer is: both!
Since our kids monthly subscription boxes have 4-6 activities each, and a 12-page magazine, and Kitchen Table STEAM programming, we are sure there will be something for every child in each theme.


Often the activities are designed to be exploratory. You might do it quickly with a younger toddler, and take more time and have more conversation with an older pre-schooler. The magazine is a 12-page guide that includes step by step instructions with pictures, and all the extra information you might want.
