Since we have been home I have to say it’s been a bit challenging keeping the kids busy. I seriously don’t know what I would do if we were home all summer without long vacations and camps – I would go crazy!
I was given the opportunity from Green Kids Crafts to try out their Garden box. GKC is a mom owned company founded by Penny Bauder a mom of two and an environmental activist from Alaska. Green Kids Crafts is an earth-friendly craft subscription service that delivers 4 craft projects each month to kids.
So this week when the boys were fighting, I was pulling my hair out ready to lose it I decided to calm everyone down let’s do a project. My boys love art so when I said the words “Art Project” they were all ears.
The Green Kids Crafts Garden Box was perfect for us. We have our own garden and work together as a family to keep the garden free of weeds (not a favorite of the boys) planting the seedlings and the best part harvesting the plants.
The Garden Discovery Box is designed to cultivate the creativity in any child. The box contained three fun projects that kept my boys entertained all afternoon. The planting of Zucchini and Green Beans were a perfect fit since it was a summer school project that we can now check off the list. The boys could make “Play Food” by lacing and stuffing cloth shaped fruit. This activity is great for hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. My youngest LOVES to paint so he was VERY into painting the Garden Lantern.
Besides Green Kids Crafts is a educational hands on learning experience it’s also eco-friendly. Green Kids Crafts is certified carbon neutral, Green America Approved, and a member of 1% for the Planet. The subscriptions are available in a month to month which is great for parents that don’t want to commit but if you love it then you can choose either a 3, 6 or 12 subscription. Wondering about ages? GKC is suitable for children ages 3 through 8 years. Your child will never get bored because each month brings a new theme relating to nature and the environment.
