Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review July 2015 - box

Green Kid Crafts is a monthly subscription for children ages 3-10 that focuses on eco-consciousness, science, and creativity. Crafting with my children is fun, but if they can learn about our planet at the same time, that’s excellent!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review July 2015 - theme

This month’s theme was Robots! This is one topic I don’t think my seven-year-old will ever get tired of!

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review July 2015 - artbot-supplies

Our first project was to build an artbot! I helped my nine-year-old make an art bot in a subscription box once, but this one is totally different. Here are the supplies and instructions. Everything was included for this project.

The artbot didn’t work too well, actually. It did make some art, but we had to mess with it quite a bit while it was creating. I love the idea of using a hexbug as a motor, though, that was cool! Also the orange marker was already dried up, which was sad.

Our second project was building a magnetbot! All supplies were included for this project.

This is our completed magnetbot! Super cute! This robot works by putting him on a surface, and then moving him around with the magnet under the surface.

Our final project was to build a glidebot, and again, all supplies were included except scissors.

The glidebot turned out great! This little guy works by hanging him up somewhere with the suction cup, and then when you pull the strings, he glides up and down them. So fun!

Green Kid Crafts always includes a sticker to reward your child for their achievements with that month’s box (left). On the right are the stickers that were used in the projects.

The verdict: We regularly enjoy Green Kid Crafts, and I think it’s a wonderful value. We had a lot of fun with this month’s theme! I felt like nothing that happened was really robotic per se this month, like all the robot movements were cheats, but that didn’t stop my son from really, really getting into it. He loved it!
