Art & Crafts Subscription Boxes for Kids

I love subscription boxes! Given as a gift, they remind the person you care for monthly you are thinking of them! Even better, many are education-based — kids won’t even know they’re learning! If you have an art-lover in your home, check out these subscription boxes with an arts and crafts twist for kids.

Little Loving Hands
Little Loving Hands delivers more than just a craft to your child each month; they deliver an opportunity to make a difference! Helping to teach children the importance of charitable giving, each box provides educational content about a special organization in need and a craft for your child to create with love! Using a pre-paid return envelope, these crafts are then sent back to the organization and your child can enjoy their very own certificate of achievement! Little Loving Hands boxes are priced at $25* per month or $20* per month when you buy a whole year in advance! You can also save 12%* if you purchase a six-month subscription.

Creigh-ative Kids Kits
Delivering developmentally appropriate activities right to your door, children 18-months through 7-years old will love receiving a Creigh-ative Kids Kit! Focused around a central theme every month, each kit includes three crafts, two songs, and 1 activity intended for your child to complete (or sing!) with an adult! Offering tons of teachable moments and meaningful discussion, these beautifully-designed “creigh-ative concept” boxes are priced at $19.99* per month or $14.99* when you purchase a whole year in advance! Subscribers interested in the 3-month option pay $17.99* per month.

Kiwi Crate
Kiwi Crate is the perfect gift for your young creator! A subscription to Kiwi Crate delivers quality materials for art, science, and engineering projects and a copy of explore! magazine, which outlines projects kids can create from the materials at hand. The boxes are designed for kids 3-4, 5-8, or 9-16+. Kiwi Crates are priced at $19.95* per month or $16.95* per month when you buy a whole year in advance!
