8 Craft Subscription Boxes for Creative Kids, Tweens, & Teens

Say goodbye to bored children by subscribing to one of these awesome craft subscription boxes.

March is National Craft Month, making it the perfect time to introduce kits to a variety of arts and craft projects. Subscription boxes are an easy way to do just that without having to leave the comfort of your own home. Here are eight that can get your little one’s creative juices flowing.

Craft Subscription Boxes for Kids

We Craft Box

Ages: 3-9
Cost: $29.99 per month
Each month showcases a different theme, from outer space and glow-in-the-dark to Polar Bears and modeling clay. There is also a unique story about the projects to inspire kids and easy-to-follow photo instructions. Even better: Each box can be shared by two children—perfect for siblings!

Craft & Boogie

Age: 3-9
Cost: $24.99 per month
Celebrate different holidays with these subscription boxes that come with three to four festive crafts, a family game, snack recipes, paper table decorations, activity pages, a Spotify playlist, and a guide that teaches the history behind the holiday. Plus, each purchase helps fund craft kits for kids in foster care, children's hospital patients, and under-resourced schools.

Box of Crafts

Age: 4-9
Cost: Starts at $20 per per month
Launched by a husband and wife who admit they are not crafty, Box of Crafts is for those parents who want to craft with their kids but aren’t exactly tapped into their creative sides. Each shipment comes with four projects that have simple instructions, as well as tips that will hopefully inspire ideas for future DIYs.
