Green Kid Crafts is a subscription company that sends out a monthly box of children’s arts & crafts. Subscription craft boxes have become quite popular and I think that they make any excellent gift especially for those of us that are a bit “craft challenged”. My children were immediately drawn to the Green Kid Crafts’ box we received as they spotted a Pirate themed craft as one of the 3 crafts.
I was drawn to it because as the name suggests, Green Kid Crafts uses recycled materials as the base of each and every craft. From scraps of paper, yarn, foil and string, all of the materials are repurposed. At first I was surprised that within the box made from post consumer materials (recyclable), each craft was packaged in “plastic’. But when I inquired about this, Penny Bauder, owner, explained that it was cellulose, not plastic after all. Green Kid Crafts works hard in every way to make sure that they are providing interesting, fun and engaging crafts while keeping a close eye on sustainability.
Our subscription box included all the materials we needed to make: a pirate hat, eye patch, map, and buried treasure as well as a scrap book, and a wind chime, complete with instructions and even the non toxic glue!
How it works: You can choose either a one month ($19.50) recurring subscription, or yearly. Each month you’ll receive a box with all the supplies you’ll need to complete at least three crafts!

I was not compensated for this post. We did receive a Green Kid Crafts box to review. Subsequently we have purchased (on our own dime) GKC boxes as gifts. As always, all opinions expressed are my own, and as honest as can BEEE!
