On the hunt for some fun activities for your kids? These are the BEST subscription boxes for kids, perfect for summer activities, year round fun, or even an option to give a holiday or birthday gift that keeps on giving!
There’s something magical about getting your own mail. I get excited when a package arrives with MY name on it, so imagine how my six year old feels. We’ve spent some of this stay at home time checking out different kids subscription boxes, and narrowed down our favorites. From a craft box to a monthly STEM / STEAM science box, we found some great ones. These monthly subscription boxes have been a fun way to set up new activities for Lydia, and somehow they alway arrive when I’m totally out of ideas.
A few suggestions for how to implement using any of these options from the best subscription boxes for kids:
Have the box addressed to your child, not to you. Trust me, they’ll love getting mail in their own name!
Plan for at least three months of use, I’ve never started a box we didn’t continue for at least a few months…..they’re addictive (now you’ve been warned).
Best Subscription Boxes for Kids
Out of all the subscription boxes we tested…..these were our favorites. We are customers for each of these, and think they are TRULY the best subscription boxes for kids.
Kiwi Crate / Atlas Crate:Kiwi Co is an awesome company that creates monthly activity boxes for kids based on age and interest. Most of their kits fall under the Kiwi Crate section that focuses on science, math, stem and steam (which we get and Lydia loves). However, we added a new box into the rotation a few months back…..Atlas Crate. It’s been a HUGE hit! Atlas Crate is created for ages 6-11 and it focuses on Geography and Culture. The first month helped Lydia build a globe, and create her own passport book. Now? Each month? She gets a box focused on a particular culture or country. It’s been really fun to explore!
Bookroo: Now you guys know I love children’s books (I mean we even have our own summer reading chart and reading club for kids). So Bookroo is PERFECT for us. It’s a children’s book club subscription meant to help your kids fall in LOVE with reading all over again. They have both a board book option and a picture book option plus a chapter book option, so there’s a perfect choice for each age group! We started using Bookroo when Lydia was about two, and did board books until she was almost four when we switched to picture books.
