Subscription boxes are so fun and exciting. I love getting little surprises in the mail with goodies from my favorite boxes. Did you know there are several subscription boxes just for kids? These boxes help beat the summer boredom and make great gifts that keep giving every month.
How do subscription boxes work? Typically you pick the length of the plan, monthly, every 3 months, 6 months or yearly and a new box with a fun theme arrives every month. The longer subscriptions will save you a few dollars and the subscription boxes usually auto-renew, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to order every month. Enjoy them and cancel anytime. My kids have had several subscription boxes over the years and always look forward to the goodies in each box.
Here is a list of 10+ subscription boxes designed just for kids!
1. Green Kid Crafts – Ages 3-10, $17.95-$19.95/month
