Q: Can you tell what the craft would be if i ordered now?Asked by Jeannebartells, 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.
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.
Q: Have you decided what the December box was going to be ? Was looking into it for my niece. Asked by Lauren S., November 2019
Revised answer -
If you order for delivery before Christmas or by Dec. 20th for shipping the week after Christmas, your first kit is the current one (Winter Shadow Box).
For current subscribers and orders placed after Dec. 20th, the December box is now going to be Hot Cocoa Candles. The 4 season art with mini easels is tentatively shifted to January due to limited available of needed supplies (It may again be bumped if the stock situation doesn't change). If...
Orders placed now through Dec. 10th will receive the lighted winter shadow box kit as the first kit(pictured in section with current/past boxes). Orders placed between Dec. 11th (will not arrive before Christmas) and Jan. 20th will receive a new kit that is painting on mini canvases that gets displayed on DIY mini easels. It will have a four seasons theme. I don't have a title/photos yet.
Bought this for my daughter and i to do. Chose the for two people... we got enough stuff for four people to make. Everything was very well put together and we had a lot of fun. we are excited for the next box and wish we could order some of your past boxes while we wait !
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.
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.
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.
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!
I really like it! Arrived on time and package great for shipping abuse. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in adults crafts.
My kids (boys, 9 and 11), didn't really 'get' this month's box... they did play with the glue and gave me the charms for my knitting though, so that was neat. Some of the past photos showed things that I think they'd like, so I will stick with it for another month to see if we get something that will catch their attention.
The Terra Crate was a big hit with my 12-year old grand-daughter who is at that awkward age between childhood and adolescence. The spooky zen garden felt both grown-up and playful at the same time - a perfect happy medium. She loved the project, and I was impressed by the careful attention to detail, quality supplies, and pretty packaging. We look forward to future shipments!
