If you’re looking for great activities to do with your kids, I’ve found a winner. Kid Art Lit is a children’s book subscription service that goes above and beyond! Let me tell you why we love it.
I know there are a lot of children’s book subscription services out there, but we’ve finally stumbled upon the very best one for picture books! Kid Art Lit is one of the most awesome book subscription boxes for picture books.
We’ve tried several of the subscription boxes for kids, both activity boxes and book boxes. Of them all, Kid Art Lit has been the biggest winner so far.
Why We Love Kid Art Lit’s Children’s Book Subscription
The most important thing about a children’s book subscription service is, of course, the books. That is where Kid Art Lit really takes the cake: they pick really good books!
The picture books are the highest quality – both in content and design. They also have a great variety of books, which will help you curate a beautiful home library for your kids.
Some of the recent books included in the children’s book subscription are:
Wild World by Andrea McAllister : A book of beautiful poetry about the earth’s natural habitats.
The Mystery of the Missing Cake by Claudia Boldt : A fun, colorful book about a birthday party, a missing cake, and a lot of suspicious characters.
Grand Canyon by Jason Chin : A stunning non-fiction book about the history and wildlife of the Grand Canyon – one of my favorite books of the year!
The books are often unique – not books that I’m seeing at the library or on the end caps at Target – and I’m glad I have Kid Art Lit to bring these beautiful books to my attention.
More Reasons to Love Kid Art Lit
The books are the best part of a children’s book subscription, but Kid Art Lit has found the perfect way to enhance the book experience. Their tagline is “Art Kit Meets Story Time” which is a perfect description!
I don’t like book subscription boxes for younger kids that include toys or treats. Even my book loving kids will ignore a book if there’s a toy in the box. But Kid Art Lit is different.
The art projects included in each book box are designed to add to the book reading experience, not distract from it.
For example, in the book box I have pictured here, the book is a poetry book. The art project included with it is a weaving project. The included mini-magazine explained, poetry is like weaving with words. What a perfect visual! To extend the activity, the booklet encourages you to incorporate found materials into your weft. Using natural materials, like grass, flowers, leaves, etc. is a meaningful complement to the poem in Wild World.
This particular box also included the materials to make wooden rainbow hand kites. This was a perfect activity to accompany the book because the kids were able to create their own poetry in motion.
I love the suggestions and tips included in the mini-magazine to make the whole reading + art experience great! Every part of this box is well designed for a fun and easy user experience for the adults and kids involved.
There were supplies to make 2 ribbon kites and 2 weaving projects.
What Ages is Kid Art Lit’s Children’s Book Subscription For?
On their website, Kid Art Lit recommends this subscription service for kids ages 3 to 8. They say that the boxes are designed to meet the developmental needs of most children in this age range.
My 4 year old and 8 year old would completely agree.
However, my 10 year old is just as involved in these art project as my younger kids and my 11 year old enjoys reading the books just as much as her younger siblings.
So, you know your kids best, but I think this is a versatile subscription box and it was enjoyed by all 4 of my kids.
Making a Children’s Book Subscription Work For You
You can sign up to receive a subscription box from Kid Art Lit every month. You can also pay up front for 3 or 6 months at a slightly discounted rate.
One thing I do appreciate about Kid Art Lit is that they make it easy to subscribe and cancel as needed.
I’d love to have one of these every month. However, as a single mother, that just isn’t financially available to me right now. Instead, I sign up to receive a box when it works for us.
Kid Art Lit is perfect during the summer months when you need something extra for your kids to do.
Kid Art Lit also makes a perfect birthday or holiday gift. Give the gift of experiences, while also helping to build a beautiful home library. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
Kit Art Lit is a great thing to have tucked away for a rainy day. My goal is to have one of these tucked away all the time as a back up plan.
Obviously, I’m a huge fan and I could go on and on about this. I’ll spare you this time, but if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me!
I did receive a complimentary box from Kid Art Lit for review purposes, but now, I am spending my own money on their fantastic boxes. All opinions are entirely my own.
