My boy's haven't opened it yet as it is for Christmas but it came super early and looks like it will be a lot of fun!!
Extremely disappointed with this purchase. The best part of it was the box but the materials weren’t satisfactory at all.
We are sorry to see that you were disappointed with your purchase. Please reach out to our customer care team so that we can make this right for you!
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,
Green Kid Crafts Customer Care
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.
Thank you so much for sharing Lindsey! Was the Transportation box his favorite? Please feel free to share any photos. We love seeing happy little engineers and scientists!
I ordered the Music theme box to try. My daughter is 3 and incredibly bright (per her Mom). lol. She enjoys crafts and is fantastic at recalling craft/steam lessons later on. This was no exception. She enjoyed making all of the instruments. I felt the supplies were well done and doable for her! We went through the entire box in about 1.5 hrs. But, it captured her attention and she paused to test the instruments and have fun between.
Thank you so much for sharing Julie! We are happy to hear that your daughter enjoyed her Music Science box and that it was a good fit for her. Please feel free to share any pictures or videos of your bright little scientist with us. We love seeing to see kids having fun with STEAM!
The Ocean Science box we got was full of fun surprises! The kids loved creating the "ocean in a bottle" project and the "glowing jellyfish" especially. I liked that so many kits were included and it was a good mix of craft and science kits. The fact that a full sized map and STEAM magazine were also included made both me and the kids happy. That there are projects that use the entire empty box - in this care into a felt fishing project - is really interesting and spurred discussions on recycling. I love that these unique boxes encourage kids to be creative, think about sustainability, and let parents connect with their children too!
Hi! We are so glad you enjoyed your Ocean Science box - thank you so much for words of support and for sharing your experience with us. We are so glad that you're part of our Green Kid Community! - The Green Kid Crafts Team
This is the second box my granddaughter has received. She loves it even more than the first one. The picture she is holding in the photo was drawn by the robot she made! Awesome product!
We're very happy that your granddaughter loves the box. :) Thank you for taking the time to share your experience!
My kids have loved their Green Kid Craft boxes! I bought a few around the holidays and it has been great to have them as an option when my kids get bored and need something else to do (that doesn't involve a screen). My 9 yr old daughter especially loves them and she's a little artist/teacher so she enjoys guiding her 4 yr old brother along some of the activities too. They have a great variety of options depending on your child's interest.
Amanda, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! We are so happy to hear Green Kid Crafts is a a good fit for your family.
As a minimalist homeschool home, this is a WONDERFUL addition to our learning experiences that do not add to our clutter. Great ideas!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback! We are so happy you are enjoying the subscription!
Usually we really like this box. There are always a good number of simple and easy (but fun!) projects to do. Sometimes the instructions could be better written, but I can always figure out what they were going for. My 4 year old is always happy to see her "Green Box" arrive.
Sadly, the latest shipment was the same one we'd received the previous month! Luckily, she was glad to do all her arctic crafts again, but if that happens again, we will have to cancel.
We are so sorry about this mishap! If there are ever any issues, please feel free to reach out to our customer care team and we will take care of things right away. Please look for an email from them. Thank you for the feedback as well!
My 4 year old loved the activities. So fun to do together.
Thanks so much for sharing that with us! We LOVE hearing about families sharing quality time doing the boxes together.
My kids loved these! They come with great information that corresponds with the theme. Very well thought out! Perfect for homeschooling when you don’t have time to come up with curriculum.
Hi Megan, thanks so much for sharing! We are so happy to hear we could make learning fun and easy for your family.
My grandson received his first box. Him and his mom have been enjoying the projects.
Thank you so much for sharing. We are so happy to hear that!
My 4 year old and husband had such a wonderful time with the Volcanos box. They spent one afternoon doing everything and keep asking when they next will arrive. The company also has great customer service. Our geode was hard to work with and when I asked them about it they sent me another plus a little bonus for our patience. I gave one less star for curation because we didn't expect the volcano to be so small and it would've been nice to have the colors be more realistic. We got blue clay and yellow food coloring. But my preschooler didn't really mind.
Hi Stephanie, thank you for the wonderful feedback. This is a really great way to bond with the kids and family and we are happy that you love it!
I signed up my daughter for this box because she loves science and art. It did not disappoint! The experiments and projects are well thought out and the guide is super handy. As a science teacher, I approve this box!
We're glad that you love the boxes. Thank you for your feedback.
We purchased 2 different aged group kits for our grand daughters and they both were the same that was disappointing
Oh no! We're so sorry this was your experience. I know this doesn't make up for the disappointment, but the boxes are distinct and this was an error we'll reach out now and correct. Thankfully it doesn't happen often, but we'll make sure to reach out and make it right!
Love!!!! I got this for a Christmas gift for my niece and I can’t wait to give it to her.
Hi Kaeli! We are so happy to hear this. Thank you for taking the time to share!
