Rainy days are a real drain on parents’ energy, especially when you are dealing with a kid who would be more than happy to watch TV for hours at a stretch. But getting a present in the mail monthly chock full of activities is enough to keep any kid excited for a little while.
Green Kid Crafts provides creative activities to do with kids through craft kit subscription service and eco friendly art boxes. With Green Kid Crafts, both parents and kids can enjoy sustainable crafts and activities that spark creativity, build confidence and cultivate respect and love for the environment.
Like so many of the best children’s products, Green Kid Crafts is a mother’s invention, created by a working mom who wanted to make the most out of the limited time she had to spend with her kids. Like many other parents, she wanted to spend that time connecting with her kids, not scrambling for ideas and shopping for supplies. Kid tested and parent approved, every project you receive bears the stamp of approval from a panel of experts, who ensure that the products are engaging, creative, and fun and also align with the company’s sustainability principles.
Every Discovery Box is packed with three unique and engaging activity kits designed to foster a child’s creativity and confidence while developing their respect and love for the environment. Each month brings a new theme relating to nature or the environment; past themes have included I Love Bugs, Outer Space, and Feathered Friends. We received the World Music Discovery Box which allowed us to make a tambourine, ankle bells, drum, and even a box guitar from the packaging. So in addition to the fun of creating the crafts we now have actual toys to play with well into the future (or until they are ripped apart or eaten by my dog).
In addition to the materials and instructions for the three craft activities, each Discovery Box includes a Discover More guide which provides more craft ideas using materials found around the house, related reading and other fun facts all related to that month’s theme.
