CraftersCrate for Girls

Disclosure: The Crafters Crate products listed below were provided for me in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines. Please see “Disclose” tab for more information.

My girls love to work together and do different projects with my husband and I. We always have something going on around the house, but sometimes are at a loss at coming up with something specifically special just for them. With Crafters Crate, my girls had a variety of projects that they could do either on their own or with a little bit of help.

About Crafters Crate:

When you sign up for CraftersCrate, each month you will receive a box full of craft kits curated for your girl. Each crate includes 4-5 crafts and activities as well as all the materials you need to complete them.


CraftersCrate is suggested for girls ages 5 to 10, but they have members that are even as young as 3 and as old as 12. It truly depends on the child and how much time you want to spend helping them with the craft time.

CraftersCrate Story:

Rachael, CraftersCrate Founder, was not your typical “crafty mom” and so she definitely didn’t have a room full of craft supplies ready to go right away. After she had her daughter, she began to realize its hard to find good craft and activities. She did find many projects on Pinterest, but in order to get everything together to complete one kids craft was a job in itself.

Home Made Moon Sand- Great Kids Activity

My girls absolutely love to play outside. I always love to try new things to change up our normal activities. Moon Sand was definitely a great fit for us. I have been wanting to try it out for awhile, but never really had a big enough container to put it in.

I went on a mission to buy everything that I needed for my girls to be able to play with the Moon Sand.

How To:


  • 1 5lb Bag of Flour
  • 2 Cups of Baby Oil

Pour the Bag of flour and the cups of Baby Oil into a big container. You then just have to mix with your hands until it is a nice smooth, powdery mixture.

I chose to make a double of this batch so that we had a good decent amount to out in our big container. I then gave my girls some measuring cups and spoons, as well as some plastic cups to play with.

Kids Art Supplies- Take Along or Stay at Home

Creative play is an important part of childhood- but did you know that art and creativity do more then clutter your refrigerator and walls? Children who are involved in the arts are often more self- confidant, self reliant, and strongly desire success. Art helps develop fine motor skills, following directions, working well in social groups and group settings, and of course will help young children recognize shapes, colors, textures, and more. Get your child excited about art, and it will likely follow though to other school activities as well- children who participate in art and artistic endeavors are *four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, four times more likely to participate in math or science fairs, to win awards for writing, three times more likely to be elected to class office and to win awards for school attendance. Here are some great sets to help your child find his or her inner artist.
