Green Kid Crafts Great for Earth Day and every day!


Earth Day is this month and so I am very happy to tell you about Green Kid Crafts!  I recently had the opportunity to review one of their Discovery Boxes and am very impressed! My son and I received the World Music craft kit which was a big hit especially since my son loves music. We enjoyed making a Tambourine, Spin Drum, Rhythm Bells and a Box Guitar. In my son’s words…”Very cool!” I love that the craft projects are eco friendly!   So, here’s some more info about Green Kid Crafts:

  • Green Kid Crafts delights kids and their parents with fun, creative and earth-friendly craft activities, delivered right to their door!  Every month’s 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.
  • Appropriate for ages 3-8, our projects are reviewed by experts to align with our Happy & Healthy Child principles, and kid tested and parent approved for fun. (I do think that even some 9 year olds will like the crafts!) I know that my 9 year old son enjoyed the crafts we received.
  • Each month brings a new theme relating to nature or the environment; past themes have included I Love Bugs, Outer Space, and Feathered Friends.
  • 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.
  • Subscriptions are available in month-to-month, 3, 6 and 12 month durations, and also make great gifts! The monthly subscription cost is $23.95, and sibling subscriptions are also available. Order at
  • Our program has won a variety of awards including the PTPA Seal of Approval, MACT Excellence and MACT Green Awards and Red Tricycle’s Award for Most Awesome Subscription Service.
  • Green Kid Crafts is certified carbon neutral, Green America Approved, a member of 1% for the Planet, and has won numerous awards and designations for its responsible business practices. You can also read more about our “eco ingredients” online.
