Crafter’s Crate is a monthly subscription box that delivers hand-picked crafts and activities made for girls. It’s $19.99/month and is billed for girls ages 5-12. Although I don’t have girls, L does have some little girl cousins, so I figured I would give it a try.
Crafter’s Crate is shipped via USPS and comes in a brown box with their cute little elephant on it.
How pretty is this packaging? Seriously? And a handwritten note to my cousin? Too cute! It pained me to untie that pretty pink bow because I knew I’d never be able to make it as pretty again!
Crafter’s Crate includes “Grown Up Instructions” which includes an overview of all the projects and discussion points and ideas to use the projects. Each individual project includes an instruction card as well! The April Crafter’s Crate theme is “April Flowers bring May Flowers” and here’s what was inside:
~Magic Bubbles: I’m totally doing these with L because I know he’d love them. Of all the craft projects we have done, I don’t believe we have ever made bubbles! I am super excited about them and am even more excited to actually get outside!
~Hair Flower: This is adorable and while my boys would want no part of it, I wouldn’t mind wearing it myself (you know how I love headbands). But I will let my cousin make / wear this instead. And I love the message about using this as a opportunity to boost your little girl’s body image by telling her that taking care of herself, loving herself and being a good person all help to make a girl beautiful. So true!
~May Day Basket: I have to admit, I don’t know much about May Day (much less May Day baskets), but after a little reading, I learned that you put flowers or treats in a basket and leave them on a neighbors doorstep, ring the bell and run away! Pretty sure I love this idea and it’s something we are going to start here. I love showing L that it’s just as fun to give gifts as it is to receive them and I gotta tell you, I think he’s getting it! And he will totally love the surprise element of this as well!
~Pin Wheel: What is it about kids and pinwheels? We’ve never made our own pinwheel so I think L and I may do this one as well. He won’t care that it’s pink at all! This activity teaches girls (and L) about how things work and gives a little lesson on how you can explain why the pinwheel moves!
~Cup-o-Grass: The cup-o-grass gives you a chance to teach how grass grows. Just like you grow when you eat and drink, so is the grass! The clear cup lets you actually SEE the roots forming which I think will be awesome for L!
While Crafter’s Crate is billed for girls (ages 5-12), I do think L will be able to enjoy a lot of these crafts as well! I do love the lessons they aim to teach with their projects and think it’s something most girls will enjoy!
