Here are some of the best subscription boxes, including B-Inspired Mama sponsor, Creation Crate, that are perfect for curious kids…
The 10 Best Subscription Boxes for Curious Kids

“Tech Education In A Box!” Creation Crate will arrive each month with everything your child needs to build a new electronics project. No worries if you’re not techy yourself, either. Creation Crate is beginner friendly and even great for adults, too! This subscription box would be perfect for learning electronics right along with your kids.

Each Junior Explorers box comes filled with adventure activities and learning related to a new location on the planet. It’s like sending the kids on a new adventure each month. Elementary-aged kids will learn about a new habitat and ecosystem through physical and digital activities. (DEAL ALERT: Buy 1 Month and Get the next Month FREE with the coupon code GET1 here!)
Is your kiddo curious about food? Get them cooking with a KidStir Subscription! Each month’s KidStir kit will include new recipes, kid-sized cooking tools, and fun food-related games and activities. Maybe they can take over dinner-duty after a few months?
4. Green Kid Crafts
Don’t let the name fool you; this kids’ subscription box isn’t limited to just crafts. Each Green Kid Crafts Discovery Box is packed with supplies to complete up to 8 creative learning activities around a specific theme – from safari to space to music and more!
This monthly subscription for kids is a little different. It’s actually a rental. Of a new LEGO set each month! Perfect for your LEGO fan, but without the huge price tag of most of the big LEGO sets. At first, the thought of keeping track of LEGO bricks that need to be sent back scared me. But then I read there’s no need to worry about missing bricks. They’re replaced for FREE! And the LEGOs are sterilized between subscribers. Pretty cool, right?
6. Surprise Ride
This monthly subscription box will take your kids on a “surprise ride” through the month’s fun theme. It will include everything for 2 themed activities, a snack, and 3 surprises related to the theme, too. Past Surprise Ride themes include bees, stars, Picasso, and more.
7. Kiwibop Postcards
Looking for an education subscription for the kids at an uber-affordable price? A Kiwibop Postcard Subscription is perfect for you. Each month, your child will find a package of 4 postcards from their silly Kiwibop character pals – each teaching about the world and encouraging reading, too. Plus, kids can go online to learn more about their postcards and facts, too.
8. The Spangler Science Club
Ellen Degenerous claims, “Steve Spangler is the science teacher you always wanted to have in school.” And when you join the Spangler Science Club, you’ll get his awesome hands-on science experiments delivered right to your door. But I highly recommend leaving Steve out of it, and letting your kids think you’re a magical science magician instead! (DEAL ALERT: *Use the coupon SPANGLER16AF to get 40% off your first box for 3-month or 12-month subscriptions. *Offer valid through August 30th, 2016.)
9. Little Passports
Send the kids around the world with a different location each month in their Little Passports Subscription Box. Choose from Early Explorers, World Explorers, and USA Explorers depending on your child’s age. Then, wait to see what locations they are taken to via letters, activities, and souvenirs.
10. The Story Box
Foster your kids’ excitement for reading with a box full of new exciting books each month. Each monthly Story Box contains 2 new books chosen by a speech-language pathologist and a parent guide to help you enrich the reading and learning experience for your child.
