    We LOVED Green Kid Crafts this month! Each activity really has a purpose, and we ( yes, even me) learned a lot! We love science around our house, so this box was a total hit.

  2. Great value

    We regularly enjoy Green Kid Crafts, and I think it’s a wonderful value. Plus I am thrilled that they regularly reuse part of the box in their offerings.

  3. So Fun!

    WE LOVED THE FINGER CYMBALS AND BOX GUITAR!!!! they’re sturdy and make really pretty sounds (even fun for me, honestly) and my son loves them.

  8. Carol

    There were a lot of activities, some obvious some not. We have been busy this month so we haven’t completed them all yet.

  9. Alejandra

    I like how fun and educational these projects were! Very easy for my 6 year to do by himself.

  10. Amanda

    it was age appropriate. My five year old was able to put each activity together with very little assistance from me. I liked that the box has several different but related projects so that the concept is looked at from different perspectives.

  11. Lizzy

    Loved the theme and the activities were so unique.

  12. Constanza

    They were easy for my 4 year olds to put together mostly on their own. The box made excellent use of everything provided, even the box! They had fun before the items were made and well after everything was made.

  13. Sandra
