Front Door Deliveries Your Kids Will Love

green kid crafts

I’m a homeschooling mom with a penchant for words and alliteration and reading and journaling and writing.

Art and music, history and poetry, literature and drama… these topics, too, add depth and interest and amazement to our day.

Then there’s math.

And science.

And suddenly this former high school English teacher turned freelance-writing / word-wielding mom begins to feel quite small and inadequate and a little bit lame.

I know, I know. Math and science already suffer from low self-esteem — especially when it comes to girls — and here I am adding to the angst.  {Don’t judge – haha!}

Instead, rejoice with me, because I have just been introduced to an awesome company called Green Kid Crafts.  In their very articulate words, here’s what they offer in a nutshell:

“Green Kid Crafts delights over ten thousand kids across North America each month with fun, creative and eco-friendly craft and STEM activities (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), aligned to national standards, delivered right to their door through the company’s subscription program!”

Did you catch that? Science, technology, engineering and mathematics?  Fun & creative? Right to my doorstep?

It’s a dream come true.


We’ve already established my inadequacies regarding science and math, but I’m also a little challenged in the “fun and creative” department.  Now I AM fun and creative, mind you, but the whole idea of gathering little bits and pieces of materials to glue and grow and paint — especially when it involves science — is so time-consuming.

Green Kid Crafts takes care of all that, though.  They offer Discovery boxes, each containing 3 or 4 activities designed around a theme. The activities come in a cute box and are neatly packaged with an activity booklet containing instructions and extension ideas.

I mentioned that I homeschool, but even if I didn’t, I’d be interested in ordering these products for my girls (hint, hint to Grandma and Grandpa who may be reading this post!) because the activities were engaging for both my two-and-a-half-year-old and my twelve-and-a-half-year-old.

For those of you who do homeschool, you can think of these boxes as little themed introductory projects to kickstart a unit (for example, there is a Botany Box, an Ocean Box, a Nocturnal Animals box) or maybe as enrichment work to extend interest in a topic.

For this review, we enjoyed the Garden Box which came with lace-up stuffed play food to make (including the “needle,” fabric, and “thread), a little garden lantern to paint (including the watercolors and brush) and some bean and zucchini seeds to grow (including the dirt, seeds and “pots” in which to plant them).

Even though Green Kid Crafts are designed with the 3-10-year-old age-range in mind, both of my girls were engaged despite their 10-year age difference:
