Q: Can you tell what the craft would be if i ordered now?Asked by Jeannebartells, May 2020

Terra Create answered...May 2020

As of 5/12, I am shipping the “For the Love of Bees” kit until these run out. I expect these will probably last for the next week, but can’t be certain. You can see it pictured in the Past Boxes section of the Cratejoy marketplace listing. Scroll down towards the bottom of this page, below Reviews.

For everyone who might see this at a later date - I used to announce which kit would be available as a first kit and it would stay that way for 30 days. Since Covid-19, suppliers and incoming inventory have been erratic and subject to delays. So, what’s available to ship changes too frequently to keep this updated and guarantee it. If you need a guarantee, I’d suggest checking out...

Q: Any idea when the currently sold out Terra Create for two will be available?Asked by Holly V., March 2020

Q: Is the box for 2 the same monthly craft as the box for one? Asked by Sarah M., December 2019

Yes. The kit of the month is always the same whether you purchase the box for 1 or the box for 2.

by Sara S., December 2019

I’m not sure of your question. If you are asking if you always start with box 1, no, it goes by month. There is a new craft each month. But if they have extra it can be purchased separately. If you are askiing if you purchase 2 subscriptions are the same in the same month, yes. One new craft per month.

My two girls 12 and 14 love this box and so do I. The activities are perfect for their age. Much more advanced than kids craft kits. Also each idea is so unique that many of the crafts are brand new to these seasoned crafters. As a mom I love how I can get a single subscription which included enough supplies for two people. I can't say enough how wonderful Terra Create is. Supplies are generous and unique. Directions are detailed and readable with lots of pictures. Favorites have included the October Halloween zen sandbox and the scented candles. This would be enjoyed by adults as well as teens.

I am 73, a lifelong crafter who was in a rut. I have done some of these alone, some with my 9 year old granddaughter (sometimes with "help" from her 5 year old brother). I have learned new skills, and the children have enjoyed them and their results have been good enough to display or give as gifts. The kits are well planned and organized, the instructions are clear and leave room for individual creativity, and we have had a great time doing them. The extra educational information in each kit is engaging, and the 9-year old is especially interested in it. The "final products" have been every bit as presentable as the items in kits marketed for adults only. I wholeheartedly recommend this kit for crafters of any age, and think it would be especially appropriate for family projects or for adult beginning crafters,

My 9 year old loves these. The projects are unique and good quality, the instructions are easy to follow, and the owner is very responsive. Better than other crates we've tried.

This is a worthwhile quality product. The direction booklet is excellent- well designEd and written. The projects could work for most ages, even adults. My 11 and 13 year olds can execute these well. The materials are quality and the projects are useful and/or beautiful.

I got the monthly box 'for two' for my daughter and me. We just did the wind chimes this weekend and absolutely loved it. We learned how to do something new and enjoyed doing it. And our creations turned out beautiful. My husband will be hanging them outside today. It's a plus that all three of us really love wind chimes. Looking forward to our next box!

My daughter is 11 and we just did our first Terra Crate. It was a perfect kit for us to do together. I'd also recommend this for a friend's crafting night to do as a group (one kit per person). There were just enough supplies and the directions were written in an open-ended way so that both of us achieved very different results (personalized). Thanks for an evening of fun!

I ordered a box subscription for 2 so both by children could enjoy arts and crafts together and not only was there enough supplies for both of them our entire family was able to enjoy making such beautiful dream catchers together and the materials sent were of highest quality and worth the cost. I have ordered at least two other craft boxes for the kids and canceled due to cheep supplies or lack of supplies but I plan to keep this box subscription coming as I was extremely happy with how everything was packaged and the amount and quality of supplies. Thanks for bringing our entire family together for some quality craft time. We are excited and awaiting this months box and can't wait to see what beautiful arts and crafts we get to enjoy.

I purchased this for me. I have done a lot of crafts. I enjoy the journey to create but when done it would go in a drawer somewhere. Not these, they are gift or display worthy. Good directions but allows you to be creative.
