Best Kids Subscription Boxes
If you haven’t tried a subscription box for your favorite young human yet, the time has come!
Subscription boxes are educational activity boxes that give you the opportunity to spend quality time with your children, learning and playing together. Your kids will love receiving a box in the mail specially addressed to them…and you’ll love having fun activities arrive at your doorstep, organized and laid out for you to enjoy with your kids.
If subscriptions are not your thing, you can also purchase single kits from many services. That way you can try out a box without subscribing or purchase a box with a theme you know your child will love. Most services also allow you to choose a 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription option if a monthly option feels like too much. Many services have a sibling option, allowing you to purchase extra crafting materials for a small fee.
Below are 5 of the best kids subscription services for spending quality time with your kids while learning together.
