I have seen many monthly subscription kits around for kids lately. I guess this must be kind of a trendy thing right now?
Whenever I come across art subscription boxes I think to myself man, my daughter would love to get something like this. However, when I look at the annual price tag and what’s included in the boxes I also can’t help but think you could put together something similar for much less.
So I decided to make one myself. I also put together a printable pack with easy to follow instructions so that you too can easily assemble a kit for the craft loving child in your life.
Do-It-Yourself Craft A Month Kit
Monthly Craft Ideas
January Sock snowman Kit
February Valentines card Kit
March Puppet Kit
April Flower pot kit
May Bird feeder kit
June Bug catching jar kit
July Firecracker flag craft kit
August Paper doll and fabric kit
September Decorate notebook Kit
October monster glove kit
November Scarecrow Popsicle stick craft kit
December Snow globe kit
Here is the printable packet you can use to put together your own craft of the month kit.
The first page is for you to print and add to the box with your craft kit bags. It tells the gift recipient what crafts are included for each month and what additional supplies they may need.
The next two pages list everything you will need to assemble each months kit.
The last two pages are instructions for you to cut out and add to each bag. This will allow the recipient to be able to properly assemble the craft.

Here are some images of the bags as I was putting the kits together.
I think this would be a super fun gift for any craft loving child to receive. Also, it would be super easy to customize for each gift recipients taste and abilities.
I hope that this helps you create a DIY craft a month kit for your child. Enjoy!
Here’s a suggestion…you should allow me to subscribe to yours.

Deal but I don’t ship so you will have to come visit me and pick it up in person
I love this idea. I have also seen those monthly subscriptions. But there too expensive. I will be trying your idea. I would like to give a box to my daughter and my two nieces. I have arranged a budget of $20 for three craft boxes. I can get all the material at dollar store. and will only be spending $6 tops per box. will see how it works.

Sounds awesome! I hope your daughter and nieces love them.
Wow, This is exactly what I was Thinking. I am glad you had this idea. Thanks!
Julie Anne says
Glad I could help. Have fun putting together your kits!
I just found this on Pinterst and will be making at home craft kits for my students during distance learning. I love these ideas!! THANK YOU!

What Age group(s) do you think these crafts are for? I’m thinking about doing this for Christmas. I’m wracking my brain trying to think of ideas for 9 (with another on the way) grandkids. Ages from 15mo to 13 yrs. The 8 & ups are so much into electronics but, still like doing crafts and I thought this would be a great idea to do family activities and not break the bank for gifts.

Thank you so much for posting this. I was searching for ideas to make DIY monthly kids for my grandkids for Christmas. I love the thought of the monthly subscription boxes but not the price tag and We have 10 grandkids. It’s hard to figure out ideas for them. I plan to make up packs for all ten (slight changes for ages) for Christmas presents. Then have their parents take pictures or videos to send me each month as they complete them. 🙂
