Kid’s Craft Ideas with Green Kid Crafts

By  | Last Updated:  

There are tons of really cool craft ideas to do with your kids. Sam and I have done a number of creative activities plus I’ve pinned a LOT of ideas for future reference. I know I’m not the only mom who does that. But—what if you are an attentive but non-crafty mom? Or what if the future projects keep being pushed far into the future because you just don’t have time to get the materials together?  Or—what if you need a themed boy birthday party craft activity? Here’s a product to help: Green Kid Crafts.

Green Kid Crafts

Green Kid Crafts is a subscription program whose activities foster thinking, questioning, and creativity. Every month they send out a Discovery Box containing 3 or 4 unique, themed activity kits. Everything that’s needed for those activities is included. The kit Sam recently received had an ocean theme with three crafts: coral postcards (blow paint bubbles), a felt pin-the-tail on the whale game, and a wooden sailboat. Because everything we needed was already included, I had more time to spend on the doing with Sam.

Monthly Green Kid Crafts Subscription

There’s a new theme every month so kids don’t become bored with “the same old”.  Some of the previous collections have included Mad Scientist, Feathered Friends, Outer Space, Around the World and Nocturnal Animals. The ideas include STEM activities: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Sailboat Kids Craft

Sailboat Crafts for Kids

I appreciate that the company was founded by a mom (in Alaska). The fact that this program has won a number of awards, including Dr. Toy’s Best Green Products of 2013, the PTPA Seal of Approval and a recommendation from Parents’ Choice, caught my attention. The discovery boxes are developed by teachers, crafty moms, and STEM experts so they support developmental skills for the 3 to 10-year-old bracket. I can tell you that 5-year-old boys sure like receiving the box in the mail! It’s like a little bit of Christmas every month!

Another positive about this program is that it is certified carbon neutral, Green America Approved, a member of the 1% for the Planet and they’ve won numerous awards for responsible business practices.

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
