In a sea of online subscription boxes and activities you could and “should” be doing with your kids, the whole process can get pretty daunting and the joy, well, it’s sort of gone. That’s why we’re narrowing things down and suggesting our three favorite online craft subscriptions for inquiring, thriving minds of all ages. Let the games, cooking and global discovery begin. Education should be fun, and that’s what these sites are all about.


With a Cricket crate for babies and toddlers to a Tinker crate for high schoolers, this site has it all for those looking to dive into STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Helping with “creative confidence,” the activities all promote hands-on fun and organized into hassle-free subscriptions plans.


Cooking is quite the craft. This next monthly subscription is super-fun and super-vital for the little epicure in your household. With thematic kits that focus on everything from mastering appetizers to the art of smoothie mixing, Kidstir conveniently comes with ingredients and utensils designed for little hands to hold.
