Q: Could a 7 year old do the Green Kid Crafts Box, ages 5-10 independently?Asked by Debi A., October 2021
Most of our Discovery Boxes have the ability for the child to work independently. Each child is different! Our boxes are meant to foster a greater curiosity into the theme of the box and sometimes kids need just a little extra help!
Q: Am I allowed to purchase the box for me to learn and get lesson ideas but not purchase multiple boxes for my classes? Many of the projects won’t work in my class but would be very helpful for me.Asked by Beth B., October 2021
Great Question! We do sell single sale boxes on our website.
Through CrateJoy you can purchase the monthly subscription which can be canceled at any time and gives you a slight discount off the single sale box. Hope this helps!

Q: Is there a discount for 2 boxes? Asked by Jade B., October 2021
Hi Jade! We do not currently offer a discount on the monthly subscription, but there is a coupon code for a 3month or longer. Holiday15 will get you 15% off the subscription.
We have gotten 2 of the preschool boxes (age 3-5) and we liked one but the other was not at all age appropriate. The human body box could have been fun but instead it had activities that were impossible for my 4 year old to do even a little. One activity (the 5 senses) was pretty fun but making an articulated hand and labeling all of the organ systems are more appropriate for middle school aged kids. I know that preschoolers have a wide range of fine motor and cognitive skills (I was a preschool and kindergarten teacher) but this was comically out of touch with what kids can do.
Hi Meika! Thank-you for your feedback. It is our goal to teach and challenge kids from 3-5 with our crafts in our Jr. boxes. Sometimes while hitting those age ranges it's hard to be right for a 3 year old but too simple for a 5 year old. Sometimes adult assistance is needed. We will take your comments into consideration the next time that box is in subscription rotation.
First box was a complete delight for the two 3-year-olds in my care. They were completely engaged with the art/science/exploration materials for several hours. The families appreciated that everything included is recyclable. I loved that everything I needed was in the box and I could see them learning as they played. It's just what I hoped for.
Cant wait to give this to my daughter for Christmas!
My 7-year-old son just received his first craft box today, and he absolutely loved it. He was able to do science experiments and crafts, and was able to do the majority of the work himself. I was very impressed with the curation of the box, and the fact that everything he needed to complete the projects was included. My son and I cannot wait for next month's box!
My 4 year old enjoys these and has learned alot from them. He loves telling me which colors mix to get other colors. He has enjoyed watching his plants grow! He loves doing the experiments and projects together and then putting the sticker on his chart that he completed them!
Thank you so much for sharing the experiences you and your little one are having! Nothing beats stress free quality time with your mini STEAM expert!
My Grandkids loved everything
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy your grandchildren loved the boxes!!
I don’t understand the hype. It was cheap and the activities were lame.
We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our subscription box. We would love the opportunity to make this right for you! We will message you and hope we can resolve this for you!

This is a scam. If you set it to NOT renew, they renew it anyway and charge you. Then when you cancel you are sucker punched into an extra subscription period
We are very sorry that your subscription renewed when you set it to canceled. We are going to look into this with CrateJoy and make sure it does not happen again! I have processed a refund for you and canceled all shipments for the subscription. Again, my apologies and hope your family enjoyed the boxes!!
All the best,

Of the three subscriptions I purchased, this was the best. The projects were cool, even though you can probably pull together the supplies from the stuff you already have at home. In the time I spent searching for subscription boxes, I could have easily downloaded these ideas from the internet and put together my own boxes. So now I know.
Hi Kevan, thank you for your honest review. We don't disagree with you. What we hope is that you enjoyed spending time with your child doing the activities. As well as seeing them learn and grow while having fun. That is the most important part. We simply provide the supplies and activities for people who don't have the time or ability gather the supplies and ideas. Keep up the good work!
My son absolutely loved the contents and activities in this box.
