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.
September’s theme is Science of Magic.

This month we again got a booklet with more information and projects that you can work on.
Lots of activities and information in here for magicians.
We set this whole booklet aside so we can try some of these another day.
The back of the booklet has how you can share your projects with Green Kids Crafts.
All of the products in the box this month. I love that they added little stickers to the baggies that let us know they are recyclable.
First up is Magic Rabits.
We had a bit of an issue with this one and my son ripped the ears off a couple of the bunnies when he was trying to stuff it and then he was done with the whole trick.
Next up is the Magic Ball trick which he was much more into. I have now seen this one at least 20 times. He keeps showing me and everyone new who comes into the house.
The instructions are easy to follow and read.
He was excited that this one was used forever as he was telling us.
All put together.
And now all apart. It is a simple trick but his favorite of the box.
The final tricks are Illusions. These are the ones I’m always drawn to when watching an act.
Again simple and easy to follow instructions.
He had a helper for his act. He wouldn’t go slow enough for me to get a picture without a blur but he kept going Tada! each time he used the wand.
And again a blue since he kept switching the colors of the scarfs. Such a simple thing but he thinks it is magic.
Green Kid Crafts sent a different kind of box this month with the Science of Magic. While there was some science in the actually study the acts were not as crafty and educational as they normally are. We are not huge magic people so while my son had fun with the box it wasn’t our favorite and didn’t spark the extra research and projects that the box normally does. We are already looking forward to next month and what crafts and projects it has in store for us.
