Green Kid Crafts Review

I wish I were craftier, I really do.  I have good intentions, but I often end up with a mess or full of frustration or both!  Some of the most frustrating moments I’ve ever had as a parent are when I come up with a great idea (a game or a craft) but before I have a chance to get all the supplies ready, my kids completely melt down and I’m so frustrated and stressed out that crafting is the last thing I want to do.  Not only can it be a hassle to get everything ready, but tracking down all the supplies can be difficult too!  I don’t know how many times my crafts and projects have failed because I didn’t have the right supplies and tried to improvise (I’ve noticed that to be a trend on my Pinterest fail blog, YourPinBroke.com).

I promise I’m not trying to turn you off to crafting!  Because I’m going to tell you about an awesome company that takes the stress and hassle out of crafting with your kids!

When I heard about Green Kid Crafts late last year, I had to contact them and see about sharing them with you!  Green Kid Crafts is a mom-founded and mom-run company that creates and sells green kid’s crafts!  Craft kits can be purchased individually on Etsy or you can sign up for a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription — How great is that?  You won’t even have to remember to order more, they’ll all come straight to you!  Each craft kit contains the main supplies you’ll need (not including things like scissors and glue), simple and easy-to-follow instructions for the craft, as well as a short bit of information about the item to be made.

Fun, creative and earth-friendly craft projects, delivered each month by GreenKidCrafts
Your kids will learn something when they make their Green Kid Crafts!  After we did our Rainbow Centipede kit, Miles could tell me about centipedes and their many legs!  My kids, at 3.5 and 2, are still probably a little young for these crafts, but when combined with your Mom superpowers, even young kids will enjoy the process and result of their Green Kid Crafts creations!

  1. Both of my boys would like the train whistle, but neither one of them would be able to blow it! 😉

  2. I think the canvas puppets look fun. I really like all of them, but maybe not the Tibetan prayer flag so much, although it’s a good way to teach about other religions.

  3. The centipede is one we haven’t done yet. We’ve been getting the kits for the past year since our son was 2. With a little help he is always successful at creating a finished product. We also find they are a great activity for the sitter to do with him.

  4. We would love the train whistle or canvas puppets!
