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!
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!
Order by October 31st to get this box!
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.
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.
great product! my kids loved it
The biggest sticking point for me is that the box came without instructions. The materials contained also don't seem at all worth the cost.
I truly apologize for omitting the instructions. This is not the customer experience that I provide and my 100s of other subscribers that I have had over the years can attest to that.
I do manufacture and pack everything in house myself so not including the instructions was an unfortunate oversight on my part.
I have emailed you a copy of the instructions that I forgot. Those instructions also has information on how you can log on to your Exclusive Member Area where you can watch a demonstration of how to complete the activities in this month’s box. While you are logged in make sure that you check out the snack inspiration, download your fun Halloween playlist, and don’t forget to check out the reading and literacy...
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!!
Very disappointed! My granddaughter is 20 mos and she his box is way over her head. I don’t want her to get the next box if it is along the same line as this one.
I am sorry that you are unhappy with your gift for your granddaughter. I make, design and test all the crafts myself and then do them with my own toddler to ensure the safety and fun for children of all ages.
This is a box that does need some parental help in some stages, however the coloring, stickering, and gluing still teaches your child many fine motor skills that are key for their development.
I also looked and it appears that the Member Area that walks you through a video on how to complete the crafts with your child was never accessed. Please email me if you have trouble logging in, but there you will find literacy tips from a speech and language pathologist, a themed playlist...
Not that thrilled with the box...should get all 3 crafts for the price you pay

Cute but only two little crafts. Not a good value for the price. I have ordered several craft boxes and this one had the fewest crafts.
I apologize that you did not find value in The Create Kit. If you are looking for more crafts to do for less than the $25 price than I would like to invite you to explore my 3 month subscription option where you get a bonus craft every months for less than the $25 price.
