Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review - March 2015 Box

Green Kid Crafts is a monthly subscription for children ages 3-10 that focuses on eco-consciousness, science, and creativity. My younger son and I are both crafting enthusiasts, and if he can learn a few things about science and the environment while he’s at it, that makes me very happy!

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 - March 2015 Info

This month’s theme was The Science of Sound! Anything having to do with music is always a bit hit at our house! The info card Green Kid Crafts sends is great because it is full of facts, online resources, and a spoiler for next month.

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review - March 2015 Kazoo Supplies

Our first project was a kazoo! All supplies were included, and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.

This was my seven-year-old’s favorite project this month! We wrapped some wax paper around one end of a tube and held it in place with a rubber band. We also poked holes in it to see if they would alter the pitch when covered. My son then decorated it with stickers. I don’t think the holes really affected the pitch much. I couldn’t get a kazoo sound from this, but my son could do it really well!

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review - March 2015 Maracas supplies

Our second project was making maracas! Again, all supplies were included.

For this project, we put dry beans into a plastic egg and closed it. Then I held the egg between two spoons while my son wrapped it with tape. I actually has a really good maracas sound!

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review - March 2015 Bells Supplies

This project actually made two different rhythm instruments – ankle bells and finger cymbals! All supplies were included for these things as well.

This is the finished set of ankle bells. My son just strung beads and jingle bells onto a platic sting and we tied it off. It turned out very cute, but doesn’t make much noise. We tried tying it on his elbow and were able to hear it a little better.

Hooray and a hearty congratulations to Green Kid Crafts for re-using parts of the box for something! I was so pleased! We cut out the box tabs and used adhesive stickers to stick bottle caps into the foldable box tabs. These also turned out great, but do not make much noise. My son tried out everything together. He was a one man band!

The final picture is of this month’s sticker. My boys love collecting stickers!

Verdict: We regularly enjoy Green Kid Crafts, and I think it’s a wonderful value. I am thrilled that they finally reused part of the box in one of their offerings. I still think separating everything into plastic bags is kind of poor form for a subscription that celebrates eco-friendliness. I wish they would get rid of those and just package everything together, or separated by paper of some sort. Otherwise, we had a good time with this box and really enjoyed the results of the projects.

  1. Hi Anna,
    I am also a fan of your reviews, especially on kids’ boxes. It is always nice to see the photos of finished projects and read about the process! Looks like so much fun.

    I have a little guy who just turned 2 in January. I have Citrus Lane for him until September. I don’t know the age cut-off for Citrus Lane, but I would also like to explore other boxes, especially the craft ones that we can do together. Do you have any recommendations? Kiwi Crate? Do they deliver age specific boxes (like you can enter DOB and gender?). Thank you!

    • Hi Kay! Thank you so much! I think Kiwi Crate is probably a little old for him still, but I would check out Koala Crate (from the makers of Kiwi Crate). I think when my guys were that little they didn’t have subscription boxes, so I don’t have any first-hand experience with the toddler kits. BUT, I think Koala Crate is the right age for him, and judging by the awesomeness of Kiwi Crate and Tinker Crate, I am betting Koala Crate is awesome, too. I hope that helps!

      • Thank you Anna! I will look into Koala Crate. I returned to work full time, so after work and weekend is all about spending time with my little one. I am not a crafty person and I don’t want to spend time searching what to make and spend time in the store… so this will be a great idea. Please keep your review coming!

  2. I always read your reviews for kids boxes. My little guy is only 17 months, and not that I want to wish away this time, but it always makes me so excited for when Little Man gets older and I can do these crafts with him. I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy all of these reviews! Thank you, Anna!!

    • Thank you so much! That means the world to me!
