green kids crafts

As an environmental scientist, leader in conservation, and a new mom, Penny Bauder found herself pretty disappointed in the amount of waste that’s generated by kid’s crafts activities.

So, she decided to do something about it.

Green Kid Crafts is a monthly subscription box that aims to empower the next generation of environmental leaders through the use of creative, nature-based STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) activities. And it has been pretty successful. Since 2010, more than 1.5 million boxes have made their way into the hands of children across the country.

For families looking to revamp their children’s playtime activities with something that’s not only educational but also good for the environment, Green Kid Crafts is a great activity with many other positive impacts, like promoting an active lifestyle and general creativity.

Houston On The Cheap readers can signup with an exclusive coupon that gives you 15% off your first box by using coupon code HOUSTON15 at checkout. Start filling that online shopping cart today.

It’s no surprise to most that subscription boxes have taken off in recent years across a span of industries, but the COVID-19 pandemic has propelled craft subscription boxes to all-time highs as parents continue to juggle their children’s education while working from home.

The best part is these boxes are designed for a wide age range, making it easier for households with multiple children around the same age to enjoy the activities.

So, what’s exactly in these boxes? Some of the top-selling boxes include,

  • Amazing Animals: You and your child can DIY an ecosystem for a host of animals.
  • Our Diverse Planet: Learn about rainforests, ocean preservation and more.
  • Green Kid Special: Learn about alternative energy, climate change and more.

The company is constantly adding new boxes to its lineup. The subscription component of the company keeps you and your family waiting in anticipation each month.
