Green Kid Crafts isn't just a craft/activity box, they are also a friend to the environment. You can find out more about their eco-friendly initiative, but clicking HERE. Green Kid Crafts strives to use Earth friendly materials and recycled materials. My oldest son (age 5) loves crafts and activities. He gets most excited when I craft/activity boxes arrive at our door, more than toy boxes. I was sent the September box for review. This review is a bit late, as I was out of town for the first part of October.

Theme: The first thing out of the box was the information card. The theme for September is Weather Box. My 5 year old loves weather, so I knew he would have a great time with this box. There are three main activities in this box : Cloud Finder, Weather Station, and Wind Sock. You can also go outline for bonus activities.
The back of the information card has facts about Meterologists. I can really see L becoming a meteorologist when he grows up.
Green Kid Crafts includes a poster with your first box and a sticker. Each month, you child will get a new sticker
Each project was packaged in it's own bag. I love the the instructions and materials were all contained together. You can grab a project and take it with you to grandma's or just craft in the park.
Windsock: This project was to make a windock. The back of the card includes the Beaufort Wind Sock Scale. This teaches your kid about wind. You child can even chart the wind for four days.
Everything was included in the box (except scissors)
L doesn't normally like to color, but he really took his time. L had a great time putting this project together, while I cooked dinner.
The finished project. There was a slight wind and l liked seeing it move.
Windsock. Isn't it pretty? L did a great job and I love his use of color.
Cloudfinder: This is a frame your child makes. It has pictures of clouds around the side, so your child can identify ones easily.
Again, everything was included.
I helped cut the pictures out, but L did the rest.
The Finished Project: L did a great job with this. L loves clouds and he can identify several different kinds. L really enjoyed this project.
Weather Station: This project makes a complete weather station for you child to identify the current weather.
There were many materials for this project.
There were several pieces to punch out for the weather station.
The Finished Project: This is the coolest project in the box. There are also several weather cards for the “Today Is” section. L does a similar activity at school and now we can do it at home.
Final Thought: This was a very fun and engaging box. L loves weather and this really expanded his knowlege about wind, temperature and general meteorology. Green Kid Crafts packs fun and educational activities together in a great box. I also love that Green Kid Crafts is eco-friendly.
