Gettin’ Our Craft On with Green Kid Crafts

by Marie on May 26, 2014

We are gettin’ our craft on with some fun, silly, and slimy discovery crafts! I’m happy to be partnering with Green Kids Crafts to showcase their fun and creative crafts in a box, mailed right to your door every month. All the supplies are included. And the best part about it, my kids ages 5 and 8 were able to complete them all by themselves – score one for mom!

Green Kid Crafts Monthly Subscription

There are 3 activities in each box, with more ideas for how to keep up the excitement and exploring! They even include a free pair of child-size scissors to help you along.

Mad Scientist Green Kids Craft Kit

We are a mom-owned, eco-friendly creativity and science kit subscription service for kids ages 3-10.  We develop open ended creativity and science kits that exercise kids’ creativity, build confidence and engage them with nature and the world around them. In other words, we believe in supporting the development of the whole child. Our kits contain only safe and sustainable materials, and we donate a portion of every sale to environmental charities.

Lucy chose to make the Slime Monsters. She did all the pouring and mixing to make a fun slime ball, complete with supplies to turn it into a fun slimy monster.

Once the summer heat really kicks in, The Nine Year Old will be reluctant to explore outside, one of our favorite activities in temperate weather. Having hands-on activities like these would be a great way to keep him curious and eager to make connections to the world around him even when he’s away from school (or staying near a fan or air conditioning vent)!

Thanks for the chance,
