What do your kids use when they do their arts and crafts? Recently we tried Green Kid Crafts and had an amazing time making wonderful crafts all with green products that came delivered to us in the mail. We had the Green Kid Crafts Ocean Craft box.
Here is more information about Green Kid Crafts as quoted from their website………
Green Kid Crafts is a mom-owned and operated green company that uses safe and sustainable materials to create activity kits that build creativity and confidence while fostering children’s love and respect for the environment.
Founded in 2010 in Anchorage, AK, Green Kid Crafts is the originator of earth friendly craft kit subscription programs.
The company’s founder, Penny Bauder, is a mother of two and an environmental activist who started the company as a way to spend more time with her children while providing a convenient solution for families to enjoy enriching experiences together. She holds a B.A. in Environmental Management and an M.S. in Environmental Science.
As an employer, Green Kid Crafts seeks to provide flexible employment opportunities for parents and operates a virtual office with team members working at home from California to Alaska to Connecticut. In 2012, the company moved it’s primary headquarters from Anchorage, AK to San Diego, CA where it is now based.
Green Kid Crafts’ mission is to inspire future generations of environmental leaders while serving as a model for sustainable business and growing demand for earth friendly, sustainable craft supplies.

All of the materials in Green Kid Crafts line of craft kits and supplies meet our standards for sustainability and are reusable, recyclable and/or compostable and sourced from nature. You can see more specifics on our “eco ingredients” here.
Green Kid Crafts delights kids and their parents with fun, creative and earth-friendly craft activities, delivered right to their door each month! Every Discovery Box is packed with three unique and engaging activity kits designed to foster a child’s creativity and confidence while developing their respect and love for the environment.
Appropriate for ages 3-8, our projects are reviewed by experts to align with our Happy & Healthy Child principles, and kid tested and parent approved for fun.
Each month brings a new theme relating to nature or the environment; past themes have included I Love Bugs, Outer Space, and Feathered Friends.
In addition to the materials and instructions for the three craft activities, each Discovery Box includes a Discover More guide which provides more craft ideas using materials found around the house, related reading and other fun facts all related to that month’s theme.

I have worked with and help promote numerous Green Companies and Products in the past and I have to say that Green Kid Crafts has my full support. I love the fact that the box of crafts is theme oriented each month, that everything needed for the craft is provided, and that the products are green. I really love that through their initiative to leave a better carbon footprint through their Green Kid Crafts boxes, that they are also giving back to different organizations.
The recommended age rating for the Green Kid Crafts boxes is age 3 to 8. I agree with the age ranking based on the Ocean Box that I have used with my soon to be 6 year old. It is a great arts and crafts project that my youngest loved especially with the help of mom.
My little one was truly excited from the moment the little brown box arrived and she opened it up and saw what was inside. She really loves doing arts and crafts.
Recently, Green Kid Crafts won the Parent Tested Parent Approved Award. A big congratulations to Green Kid Crafts, it is well deserved.
