Monthly themed crafting kit. All materials for three craft projects, instructions, and an educational development guide (written by a Dr!) are sent each month. Do fun, developmentally appropriate crafts with your child without the hassle of researching crafts, running to the craft store or storing multiple supplies. Just open and craft!
Q: What if you have multiples the same age? Is there enough items in 1 box for Quads or Quints?? Or would I need to purchase 2 boxes? Is there an add on option that makes it a little cheaper?Asked by Stephanie O., October 2020
Great question! Right now the box is designed for one child but many families are able to complete the crafts with two children. They also take advantage of the Member Area where there are templates to make the crafts using your own supplies.
Cratejoy did just came out with a new feature that allows me to add additional crafts like this. Let me contact their support so I can put this in effect for you. I’ll respond to this thread to let you know when it’s in effect (it should be by the end of the day today!).
Q: Does anyone have experience with a 2yr old? Wondering how they do.Asked by Stephanie S., May 2020
Yes! My son is 2 1/2 and he’s the product tester to make sure each craft is fun and engaging.
Q: What ages are your boxes suitable for? Asked by Nico H., January 2020
Thanks so much for your question! The box is suitable for ages 1-5 but please be aware that the box may contain a choking hazard (such as the lid to a glue stick) which is a choking hazards for children under 3.
I've been a subscriber directly through the Create Kit site for a couple of years now. We started getting this kits when my son was 2, maybe a little younger, and we've always loved them! In the early days, my son needed lots of help with the crafts, but they were engaging and we both had a blast. As he's gotten older, he's able to do more with less guidance from me, but I've never felt like they were outside of his reach. My youngest just turned 18m and I can't wait to start the crafts with him!
We have been receiving The Create Kit for a year and a half now, starting when my daughter was about 2.5 years old. Everyone in our family loves this kit. My kid loves doing the crafts, my husband loves the easy to understand instructions, and I love the reliability that our box will arrive each month full of things that entertain and educate. An added bonus- supplies are plentiful. I now have a drawer full of glue sticks, crayons, stickers, paints, brushes, and other things to throw together when I need a quick distraction while I do chores. All of this with zero planning or thought needed from me.
Everything is always so well planned out and my daughter loves doing the crafts. These are perfect for rainy days or days that are too hot or cold out!
My almost 3 year old absolutely loves seeing his box show up in the mail. It's the highlight of our month. He has learned his colors, shapes, and to even use scissors properly with this super fun craft kit. Best monthly subscription I have ever purchased. Thanks The Create Kit!!
We love these crafts! My almost 3 year old daughter is able to do them (with some help, of course). It's so great to have everything we need included in the box, plus the developmental guide is very helpful too.
This was the first craft I’ve ever done with my kid EVER. He loved it so so much and has been asking to glue things ever since. I loved how easy it was to do the craft with no prep and not having to search online for a fun craft for us to do. He just turned 2 so I wasn’t sure how it would go but he did great!
I am so glad you enjoyed crafting with your son! I hope The Create Kit showed you how much fun you can have creating memories together. My son is also 2 so I know how hard it can be to find the time to come up with fun and educational crafts. That's why I made The Create Kit for other mamas like me and you! I can't wait to send more crafts to you! This next Kit is so much fun!!
I do not have little ones anymore but I am in love with this subscription and have several friends that love it. I wish this existed when my kids where little! What a time,money and sanity saver this would have been! All the supplies you need included in the amounts you need for the craft! Yes! Then there’s a little lesson and online resources!!! Even better! Incredible product, beautifully put together and timely delivery! Just wow!
My 5 year old son loved these crafts. It was easy for me, had everything I needed, and I love the developmental guide.
Great subscription box. I have two daughters (6 and 3) and they both love the crafts that come in here. Each month is a whole new adventure for them! They get so excited when they see the box in the mail. The crafts are simple enough for them to do without a lot of intervention from me.
I love getting this box! It's instant fun for my toddler that I don't have to think about or put together. We have fun and he's learning at the same time. As a professional speech-language pathologist, I love activities that are rich in language teaching opportunities and we have so much doing these!

Author Carter Higgens is taking over this month of crafting by inspiring us to use our imaginations to create. Using her latest book, Circle Under Berry, Carter is walking us through how opened ended play can result in some pretty unique fun which we are then using to make cards and notes of joy to send to someone special in your child's life. Plus, because of the season there is of course going to be some additional treats added in!
November it’s all about showing gratitude and embracing fall with a cute hedgehog thankful craft, a painting that explores sensory art and will make a great keepsake or gift (one to keep and one to gift!), and some fun sun catchers to open up conversations about why the leaves change colors. Science, Cause and Effect, Problem Solving and more are all being explored while your child makes the crafts included in this Kit. Everything’s included, just open & craft!
