Our Monthly Subscription Service

Building on the popularity of our Ocean, Rainforest & Birds of Prey Eco Kits, which are designed for children age 3-8, we launched our first subscription box in July 2020. It was a huge hit with kids and over 25 families signed up! So thrilled to continue our mission of instilling a love of nature, many cultures and the arts in young children in our community & beyond. 

Our kits are designed by an early childhood professional to be fun & enriching. Each month will be a different theme and will include opportunities for creativity and play with art, science, sensory stimulation, fine-motor skill development and more! Further, all of our kits are gender neutral, so there is no "girl" or "boy" option. We strive to be eco-friendly, sourcing used & natural materials and limiting plastics as much as possible. 

While there are many national brands that can provide  you with monthly boxes for your kids, with our service, you are supporting a local, small business. 

What's Inside?

In each kit you can expect to find:

  • 3-4 activities or crafts with simple-to-follow, written instructions
  • 1-2 educational worksheets or laminated cards (may include a game, coloring page, etc.),
  • Access to a blog post that provides supplemental learning materials including book suggestions and links to virtual "field trips" 

How Does the Subscription Work?

This is a recurring subscription. Your card will be charged when you check-out today and then again in about 30 days, and every 30 days thereafter for the number of months you choose (3, 6 or 9 months). When that time is up, there is no auto-renew, so you are in the driver's seat. You can cancel at any time and even pause a month if needed! This can be managed through your subscription account which you will need to create when you purchase this product. (Don't worry-- it's quick and easy!)

Can I give this as a gift?

The subscription is available as a gift, and also available to be prepaid. Prepaid subscriptions pay for all months and shipping in advance. The quantity is the number of kits you want delivered each month. So if you prepay 3 months and set the quantity for 2, you'll pay for 6 kits total and receive 2 kits each month for 3 months. Gift subscriptions will not auto-renew. If you want to pay monthly, just be sure that the shipping address is set for delivery to the gift recipient. 

Thanks for your ongoing support!!
