Continually finding new, creative ways to engage your children can be a challenge, to say the least. Who has time to come up with a cool craft project or an exploration game (let alone shop for the materials involved) when you have work, laundry, and life piling up all around you? A modern mom needs all the help she can get, and the following 10 subscription services are here to help. Not only does each come stocked with activities, craft projects, toys, and educational info that your lil ones will love, but because you subscribe, you only have to buy it once and a new shipment of awesome entertainment will arrive at your door each month. We're a little enamored with the minds who dreamed up BabbaBox, Kiwi Crate, and dad-centric Cooper & Kid, and after you check them out, you will be too!
It's no secret that we love everything about Kiwi Crate — the kids' subscription service that sends monthly boxes filled with educational arts and crafts projects. They're fun, they're creative, and they help those of us who are less crafty inspire creativity in our kids! That's why we're so excited that Kiwi Crate is now offering three holiday options to help get kids in the holiday frame of mind. The kits, which include everything you need to create the specified crafts — no running to the craft store to pick up obscure products or specific glues — are a great way to bring parents and kids together, without the stress of trying to come up with a tot-appropriate project. Click through to see the three new crates and get ready for a crafty holiday!
Since 2011, Kiwi Crate has been putting together cool boxes filled with inspirational and educational arts and crafts that arrive on your doorstep once a month for a small fee. This year it has two Halloween options for crafty kids: Flying Fairy and Superhero! The kits include everything you need for a homemade costume and are appropriate for kids aged 3 and up. Along with some adult assistance, the costumes easily come together with your child having a big hand in how they are designed. When one arrived at my door, my daughter and I couldn't wait to get started.
