What is Green Kid Crafts? It is a subscription service where they will send a packet of crafts each month.   Inside the packet are all of the items needed to do the various crafts (except glue, scissors & markers).   You get a total of 3 inspirational and diverse crafts in each packet.   I just love the fact that all of the items in the kits are kid-friendly, earth-friendly, and safe… and many of the kits had a cultural application.

The instructions were detailed, but left room for kids to develop and add their own personal touches.   For my son, the “Great Horned Owl” craft became the Great Owl Man when my son decided he’d rather have a beard than a beak – silly fella.   Exposure to lots of different textures really helps develop fine motor skills!

The lady who does the crafts is always looking for great ideas and with the help of this site we have come up with some wonderful new ideas that cover a wide age range. We now not only have some happy kids, we now have a wide range of happy kids. It’s great to see more kids getting involved and parents too.

  54. I homeschool my 8 yr. old daughter and 3 yr. old son & we love to make all sorts of crafts as part of the daily curriculum in order to bring out the individualism within each of us as a practice of self – growth & creation through the talents given us and to help recycle things we already own from thrift store finds, etc. into beautiful works of art.
