My twins have a birthday coming up. Friends and relatives are asking what the girls want. They have enough clothes and toys and many of those barely get used. When I think of the best gifts, they are the kinds that create memories and provide experiences. Subscription boxes make great gifts for just those reasons. They provide children with all the tools they need to have an experience. The experience may be educational, artistic or just plain fun. These make great gifts for the kid who has everything. We have had the chance to test out a number of subscription boxes - some great, others not so much. I decided to assemble a list of The Best Subscription Boxes for Kids to help those who might be looking for a perfect gift for a child. What's better than the gift of creativity and family fun? For more fun gift ideas check out Best Subscription Boxes for Boys and 20 Gifts for the Budding Artist.

Subscription Boxes for Kids
Most of these subscription boxes include shipping and handling in the cost. When they don't, I have indicted it under subscription options. All prices were current at the time of this writing, but they may change at any time.
Do your kids love cooking? I have long been a proponent of cooking with kids. There are so many things kids learn helping out in the kitchen. Math, reading, chemistry and cooperation and more are used while following a recipe.
Raddish is a monthly subscription box for kids that is a cooking club, culinary lesson, and mealtime solution all-in-one. Young children get to work with an adult, while older kids and teens independently indulge their culinary curiosity! And it's perfect for picky eaters — kids who cook, eat!
A new kit is delivered to your doorstep every month! Each kit features a new culinary theme! You'll also get a shopping list emailed to you prior to delivery so you will be ready to cook. These kits are a great way for kids to develop new cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen while the entire family builds memories together.
Raddish Kids offers a number of subscription options. Monthly subscriptions are $24 per month. A 6 month subscription is $22 per month and a 12 month subscription is $20 per month.

We are readers in our house, so this subscription is near to my heart. Bookroo enables and empowers parents to instill a love of reading in their children. Each subscription box contains either 3 board books or 2 picture books. The books are carefully chosen and aim to be hidden gems that you probably haven't heard of rather than popular children's books.
One of the things I love about Bookroo is the fact that the combined retail value of the books always exceeds the subscription price!
A monthly subscription is $19.95 a month plus $5 shipping while a six month subscription is $16.33 per month plus $5 shipping.
PLUS A BOX FOR MOM!
