Green Kid Crafts is a subscription box that sends 5-8 themed projects made with eco-friendly materials to your home every month. The boxes contain hands-on explorations in science, math, technology, engineering and art that are intended to challenge children from 3-10 years of age.
October’s theme was Safari Science. We’re excited to learn about animals, their behavior, and their natural habitat!

Each set of crafts is packed in individual plastic bags.
Every box comes with an info card, a nice visual representation of the different activities awaiting us in the box.
Have you ever been to a safari? Just by looking at the pictures on the info card, we can tell that it is such a fun experience. We agreed that we want to go to a safari in the future, but for now, we’ll be having a great time doing all these safari-themed crafts!
The first activity taught my son about habitat types. This involves scratch art postcards and stickers, which he really liked!
A scratch stick was also provided so he can draw different habitats on the postcard, such as desert and forest.
Tadah! It’s so colorful! We had fun choosing the animals and sticking them on to their proper habitats.
The next activity is a game of hide and seek. This time, it involved animal erasers and “camouflaging” them. After the game, my son was happy that he could keep the erasers in his pencil box!
Next up is another drawing activity. This time, it’s related to migration of wildebeest! It’s our first time to hear about this kind of animal. Apparently, it’s a mammal that belongs to the same family as antelopes and cattle. Its other name is “gnu.”
We received a big and colorful map with cute illustrations for this activity.
The fourth activity is a more personal one. It’s about our own migration story! I enjoyed talking to my son about our family’s history. I think it’s a great activity because he didn’t only learn about how people migrate, but also about our own background.
Next up: tracking and migration. My son felt like he was a detective by investigating the marks left by different animals!
The next activity included finger paint. It was fun! You know how kids love such (messy) stuff!
Oops! The last activity had materials like cornstarch and sand, but it spilled inside the bag!
It seemed like a fun activity, and we’re a bit sad we can’t do it anymore.
As always, Green Kid Crafts gave us a good time. My son gets to do art, learn about science, and play at the same time! This month, he even learned about the life in the safari. I admit I had fun and learned a lot too! My son and I look forward to every box, as much as we love working through the activities together.
