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 October 2015 - theme

This month’s theme was Kitchen Science! I do the activities in this box with my seven-year-old son, and I wasn’t too sure he would be into this…

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review October 2015 - volcano-supplies

Our first project was a volcano! These are the materials and instructions that were provided. We had to provide vinegar.

Here’s our erupting volcano in action! This was clearly more of an activity than a craft, but it was awesome, nonetheless. We dissolved color tabs in vinegar, then pipetted the liquid into a mountain of baking soda.

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review October 2015 - bath-bomb-supplies

Our second project was making bath bombs! My son would be embarrassed if he knew I was telling you this, so I’ll whisper it… (He loves bath bombs!) We had to supply oil and water and essential oil for this project.

I don’t know what we did wrong, but these were a disaster. They look OK here, while they are in the process of being made. They were supposed to sit and be allowed to dry for 24 hours. Three hours later they had ballooned into great pools of crust and made a huge greasy mess all over the dish towels.

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review October 2015 - soap-supplies

Our final project was to make homemade soap. My sons both made loads of handmade soaps last year as Christmas presents, so we were ready for this task!

Here it is! Glitter soap! It turned out great and looks nice on the bathroom sink as guest soap.

Green Kid Crafts Subscription Box Review October 2015 - sticker

Green Kid Crafts always includes a sticker to reward your child for their achievements with that month’s box. The boys both love collecting emblems of achievement!

The verdict: We are big fans of Green Kid Crafts! This month was a little off because of the bath bombs project, but I have this feeling that we did something wrong. They shouldn’t have exploded like that! Too much liquid, maybe? In any case, both of the other projects were fun, and my worries about my son not liking kitchen science were totally unfounded.

What do you think of Green Kid Crafts?

Each month kids get 4 to 6 STEAM activities delivered to their door that encourage creativity and inspire a connection with nature and learning through fun.

We got this kit last year and everything in it turned out great. The bath bombs were a huge success and easy to make. I wonder if they changed the recipe?? I even bought more supplies from the recipe card and made again.

I am not impressed with this box, the volcano making items were busted and everything in the bag was dusty upon arrival. I contacted them 3x through email and they never even replied.

Our bath bomb exploded out of the egg mold. I thought we did something wrong too, but never the less, it was kind of fun to watch it “explode”. lol
