Have you ever ordered a subscription box? Maybe you get your Stitch Fix on for yourself, or your husband gets Dollar Shave Club. Subscription boxes are convenient and fun- they’re like a little surprise every month! And being that we live in the middle of NOWHERE (seriously, Target is a three-hour drive!), these boxes have been a great way to keep to our sanity 😉

Here’s a quick review and/or link to each box we’ve tried:

Applenana is a children’s book and activity subscription box. We had the chance to review a box based on the book Snowy Day. The box contained a mixture of printable and art projects (plus a hardcover copy of the book itself). It also included art materials like a snowflake crayon, stamp, paint, etc. There were fun mini projects too, like a clay snowman kit and insta-snow! Altogether, the box provided enough supplies to complete several book-themed preschool activities. I thought the box was very well curated and developmentally appropriate for my kids. I also enjoy that you can order their past boxes on their website.

Kid Art Lit

A fabulous children’s lit subscription box! This subscription box offers monthly children’s books and art activities that coordinate with them. The focus of the box is on PROCESS DRIVEN experiences. I am head over heels with every book and project the boxes have included. You won’t be disappointed by the experiences this subscription provides! Learn more about Kid Art Lit here.

The Story Box

The first time we review this box we received the most perfect book- Hattie Peck. As a foster and adoption family, this book was absolutely necessary to add to our bookshelves! I’ve given these boxes as gifts to my nephews for birthdays and holidays as well. I really enjoyed the book picks and activity suggestions included in each box <3 Get your box here.


I’ve already written a full post on BookRoo and how much we enjoyed our boxes! You’ll definitely want to check it out in this post!

Hot Wheels: Challenge Accepted!

By far my boys’ favorite subscription box to date! I love that this box includes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)based projects!

The Hot Wheels: Challenge Accepted box is one you’ll want for your kids (and one of the best gift ideas for kids ages 5 and up!)

Veggie Buds Club

I had been eyeing this box for months! There are plenty of vegan subscription boxes you can subscribe to. However, I finally tried it during their “Beet Box” month and I was super happy with the contents. We received a shirt, fun activities, a pin, a sticker chart, and more. It really was a great way to introduce a new food to our kids and encourage them to eat it! Check out what they have to offer here.
