Using the Green Kid Crafts subscription box is the ultimate savior for some of us moms who are either not natural born creatives or simply don’t have the time to think up the best educational crafts for our kids.
What is Green Kid Crafts?
Green Kid Crafts is a subscription box service that was made to educate your children with fun crafts. Each box has directions for crafts and the supplies that you need to do them.

Using a kid activity subscription box is the best way to cut down on the amount of time you spend preparing the activity and maximize the amount of quality time you spend with your kids learning.
Green Kid Crafts highlights STEAM activities (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) that help spark your kid’s imagination.
All of the materials that come with the subscription (and even the box!) are eco- friendly, which can help you as a parent ignite an educational conversation with your children about what it means to take care of our environment!
What we learned from Green Kid Crafts
Our box’s theme this month was based on kitchen science! We received enough materials to complete 3 kitchen science crafts and enough directions to complete 3 more bonus crafts.
The first science experiment we learned how to make soap. Green Kid Crafts provided all of the materials needed and the only adult help needed is to melt the bar of soap in the microwave.
After the soap was melted the kids were able to decorate the soap with glitter and erasers. It was fun for my daughter to see how once we poured the melted (and decorated) soap in to the star shaped mold it hardened and took the shape of the container it was in!
What a great lesson on the properties of liquids and solids!
The second kitchen science experiment we learned how to make fizzy bath bombs. We did have to have vegetable oil from home, but the rest of the materials are provided.
This experiment can help you facilitate a lesson on chemical reactions. What causes the bath bombs to fizz?
Don’t worry, in case you aren’t a science fanatic Green Kid Crafts tells you how to explain the process to your kids!
The third experiment was my daughter’s favorite. We used baking soda and colored tabs dissolved in vinegar to create bubbling volcanoes!
Using some vinegar from home, you dissolve the color tabs inside to make the volcanoes colorful. Once you drop the colored vinegar onto the baking soda you and your kids can watch the bubbling volcanoes come to life!
The Green Kid Craft subscription box is a great, easy to use, educational activity for both kids and parents. We will definitely be using this subscription box service in the future!
