Craft Kits for Toddlers
My oldest kiddo has been getting a craft box for kids monthly for about the last two years and each month, my middle kiddo was envious. We’d tried one for her a while back and it wasn’t all that well made and didn’t hold her attention, but now at four, she’s in such a sweet spot to start getting a craft box!
We love the Kiwi Co Koala Crate, which is a monthly craft box subscription that combines STEM, art, and hands on projects to deliver education and fun in an easy to use package. I love that everything we need for the projects are included and that she can look at the illustrated instructions to help figure out how to do them.
We recently did a box that had a bug theme, so we made bug wings, a little ladybug bag, and played a bug matching game. She’s used these almost daily since then too, which is a nice added benefit to the subscription.
Kiwi Co Koala Crate
These craft box subscriptions are a great gift for grandparents to share with the kids—especially since they keep on giving throughout the year—and are such a fun way to keep the kids entertained…and to mix things up while spending all of this time at home.
What’s in each box?
- 2-3 projects to spark learning through play
- Illustrated instructions in a guide for parents with additional inspiration
- A magazine for the kid with extended stories, puzzles, recipes, and more
- Online projects with hands-on ideas and activities for fun at-home
How does the subscription work?
You subscribe to get a monthly box. (The youngest age box comes bi-monthly, I think because the items in the box are more durable toys than the other boxes so the cost evens out with fewer boxes over the course of the year.) There’s almost always a 30% off code to use if you sign up for their newsletter, so be sure to look on their site before signing up.

If you’re looking for more of a set of craft supplies to do a lot of projects with, we love this My First Arts and Crafts Library from Kid Made Modern. We’ve been using it for a few months and both my 4 year old and 1 year old have been super into it!
