We LOVE subscription boxes! The kids get so excited when a new one shows up on our doorstep because they know there’s hours of fun inside.

And let me tell you, we’ve tried out a lot of different boxes for kids for the site. The cool thing is how different they all are!

There are subscription boxes tailored to a wide variety of hobbies and interests. So whatever your kid is into, there’s probably a subscription box to suit their taste.

Which is great since we all know that no two kids are alike. If you’ve got one who likes cooking, and one who likes building…no problem. There’s a box for that!

Here’s a list of our TEN FAVORITE SUBSCRIPTION BOXES FOR KIDS. We’re sure there’s one to match your child’s unique personality.

And for all the aunties and grandparents out there – these boxes make a really special and memorable gift! Which one will your kids love?

 

1. For The Budding Chef: Kidstir

Age: 4-12 Years Old

Why We Like It:  Kidstir is one of our favorite monthly subscription boxes for kids. It teaches your child age-appropriate cooking techniques while they build their own cookbook. The company was founded by moms to help kids learn their way around the kitchen, which can spark a lifelong love of food and good eating habits.

Cooking is such a valuable life skill to have! You’re empowering your kids to make healthy food choices and not rely on eating out. This is a skill that will serve them well into adulthood.

In each Kidstir box you get kid-friendly step-by-step recipes, educational food pages, kid-sized cooking tools, shopping lists, and food themed games and puzzles.

Even if you’re not a great cook yourself, you can totally pull this off. The instructions are really easy to follow. You might even pick up some new cooking skills along with your child.

2. For The Philanthropist: Little Loving Hands

Age: 3-8 Years Old

Why We Like It:  Every Little Loving Hands box contains craft materials designed to help your child learn about charitable giving. Each box focuses on a different charitable cause your child can support by making fun crafts and donating the finished products as gifts.

We think this box is a really great concept. It teaches kids about charitable giving, while providing a fun activity. We also like the discussion questions that Little Loving Hands includes about the charitable organization to spark learning and reflection.

It’s doubly cool that at the end of the activity you send away the completed craft, which helps keep a crafty home clutter-free. Your kids will love creating something special for someone who really needs a lift. You’ll love not having another random art project laying around.

3. For The Next Great Actor/Actress: My Pretend Place

Age: 3-8 Years Old

Why We Like It: calling all future screen queens and YouTube stars! My Pretend Place is a subscription box for kids who love to dress up and act out scenes. This box takes make-believe to a whole new level.

What’s really cool is that My Pretend Place includes a letter for your child with each box. The letter introduces whatever the theme is, like astronaut, magician, rock star, or pirate and gives your kids ideas about what type of play is in store.

We also really like that the costumes are made out of high quality, non-itchy material. We’re not fans of cheap scratchy costumes. And the boxes come with fun add-ons, like magnets, toys, books, etc. tied to the theme to give your kids hours of fun activities.

Your living room will become a theater.

LEGOs are great skill building toys for kids. LEGOs teach children how to think in three dimensions and enhance fine-motor and creative thinking skills. Kids can also improve their reading skills by following the build instructions.

Brick Loot researches the latest and greatest brick themed toys and ships a custom box direct to you. Every month is a different theme, to prevent building boredom.

The kits contain either LEGO or LEGO compatible bricks, so they’ll all work together. It’s any mini-architect’s dream box.

5. For The Future World Traveler: Little Passports

Age: 3-12 Years Old

Why We Like It: Instill a love of travel in your children and deepen their understanding of cultures around the world with the Little Passports program.  

Most families don’t have the funds to fly across the country, let alone the whole globe. But that doesn’t mean your children shouldn’t learn about who and what’s out there.

Each month your child will receive an age-appropriate package designed to build knowledge and spark curiosity.

The activities included, which range from maps, to destination-specific activities, travel souvenirs, their very own “passport” and more will help take your child’s thinking to places beyond your own backyard. With Little Passports they can explore new places, cultures, recipes, and ideas.

Don’t be surprised if your kids develop a love of travel and adventure as a result!

6. For Your Mini-Scientist: Green Kids Crafts

Age: 2-10 Years Old

Why We Like It:  Like so many of the best children’s products, Green Kid Crafts was created by a mom (and environmental scientist) whose personal experiences taught her how important it is for children to exercise creativity and learn about the world around them.

Green Kid Crafts is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) subscription kit for children. Each box is themed, exploring topics like ocean science, volcanoes, or music.

The boxes are designed to promote creativity and activate thinking, questioning, and curiosity through guided science experiments.

The kids get super excited when it shows up in the mail, and you save yourself the time and energy of running to the store to get supplies. Everything you need for hands-on learning projects is right there in the box.

7. For The Creative Type: Bramble Box

Age: 3-8 Years Old

Why We Like It:  Bramble Boxes are hand-curated play and craft kits for kids. Bramble Box is a small, family run company started by a mother of two in her basement (no lie). She was always looking for ways to keep her kids entertained while reducing screen time, this is her solution.

Each themed box encourages kids to imagine and discover through play, art, science, and math activities. The kits are designed to take some of the pressure off parents by giving your kids a pre-planned, fun activity they can do that you won’t feel guilty about.

Boxes are gender neutral and include themes such as detective, post office, birthday party, and more. The materials are intended to help your child use their imagination, express themselves, improve reading and math skills, learn about the world around them, and overall, have FUN.

Bramble Box is a lifesaver for busy parents who want their kids to engage in quality play and learning activities, but don’t have the time to put together the materials.

Basically this is a monthly subscription box that sends you 4-5 fun challenges to solve… in 60 minutes or less. Every task has a difficulty rating from easy to hard. You may be asked to build things, solve puzzles or brain teasers, complete a task blindfolded, you just never know.

10. For Their Next Milestone: HOOT For Kids

Age: 0 – 6  Years Old

Why We Like It: HOOT For Kids is a monthly toy and activity treasure box. What’s cool about it is that the toys and activities are tailored to your child’s age and developmental stage. It’s this customization that makes HOOT unique.

HOOT stands for Hands On Occupational Therapy. This product is led by a pediatric occupational therapist who firmly believes that toys foster growth and can be used in many creative ways, including as a tool to enhance key developmental areas: fine motor, gross motor and sensory processing skills.

In addition, the right toys and activities can help parents be instrumental in facilitating developmental milestones.

Each HOOT box comes with three or more toys that are picked specifically for your child’s developmental stage, based on a questionnaire that you complete when you sign up.

We love that HOOT For Kids also sends information for parents including innovative ways to play with the toys that challenge and stimulate your child. It’s kind of like a mini occupational therapy session in a box.
