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.

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.

What a lovely box. Everything about it is superb. My 12 year old daughter received a 3 month subscription. The first box is the hot cocoa candles. The instructions are very clear, the supplies are included, there was a history of chocolate for extra educational experience, and the end result is super cute. My daughter loves it so much. Thank you for the fantastic experience.

My daughters, age 8 and 5, have loved every one of their TerraCrate boxes. The 5 yr old needed some help from her sister and more supervision, but they have both spent multiple hours on each box. The candle box was shared with our 12 year old niece and was a perfect gift. The supplies are always high quality with amazing directions that my 8 year old can read and follow. She loves the independence of creating something so high quality on her own. A wonderful gift. Thank you!

We’ve tried several subscription boxes, but Terra Create is BY FAR the best one! Every single kit has been filled with super high quality materials, and has been really fun! All three of my kids enjoy them, from my 8 year old to my 14 year old! The instructions are clear, easy to follow, and include extra educational information we all learn from! The finished products are beautiful, useful, and fit in with our natural/environmentally friendly lifestyle. Not a single complaint about this box, it has been exactly what we hoped for!
