Keep kids of all ages occupied and make learning fun with Kiwi Crate. Your monthly subscription includes multiple activities and all the supplies that your kids need to do them.
You then have the option of adding a book to your monthly plan for only $9.95. Each book will feature a theme that works with the box of the month. The site asks you to review your order and will show you how much the plan you picked costs. This gives you the option to go back and select a different plan or agree to the terms of the site. When you pay with a credit card or debit card, KiwiCo also asks you to create an account. This allows you to change your subscription later.
Kids can learn about chemistry and scientific principles through MEL Science. You pay $34.90 per month when you sign up, but the price drops to $26.20 per box if you prepay for 12 months and $31.10 per month if you pay for nine months in advance. Each box includes lessons and projects for kids five to 16+ who love science. They get hands-on experiments that they can do at home and activities that they can do with virtual reality. Subscribers also get help from professors and teachers who host online labs and are on hand to answer any questions they have.
With Creation Crate, you can choose a monthly subscription for $29.99 or a quarterly subscription that sends three boxes to your home at the same time. There are also annual plans that let you do the activities whenever you want and save money on the total cost. Creation Crate is available as a junior engineering or junior robotics box for kids seven to 11. Those who are 12 and older can choose from the challenger and electronics boxes. Though these projects are a little harder than those in the Kiwi Crate boxes are, they help kids build on their knowledge.
Many kids and their parents like the books that they can add to a Kiwi Crate subscription. Owl Crate Jr. sends your little one new books every month that are appropriate for their age and reading level. You can try it for a month or get a subscription for three to six months. Each box uses a different theme and includes a book based on that theme along with a plate inside the book signed by the author. Readers also receive a magazine, sticker and either another book or game. This subscription box helps young readers find new treasures.
Little Passports is a subscription box similar to the Atlas Crate. There are five plans that are suitable for kids three to five and older children.

There are also science Junior boxes for kids five to eight and World Edition and USA Edition boxes that focus on cultures from other countries and those found here in the US. Little Passports also have a referral program that lets you earn money when you tell your friends.
