Top 10 Subscription Boxes for When Your Kids are Bored

Subscription Boxes and Projects Kids Love

Have you ever heard of Cratejoy? Instead of just having one or a few different types of subscription boxes, they have TONS to choose from!

We really love the gardening box, the fairy garden box and the comic book box, but find one to suit your child’s taste. These kid’s subscription boxes make fun birthday gifts and give kids projects to do alone, with siblings, grandma/grandpa and more. And they start from age 1 up to young adults. 

Our daughter goes to her grandparent’s home on Wednesday and they have a great time doing projects together. This is a favorite and they’ve been working on it together for MONTHS. There are all sorts of parts that she puts together, even lights that actually light up. She’s 8 years old and this is probably one of our favorite purchases of the whole year!
