5 Ways This Gift is Helping Families Connect through Creativity!

5 Ways This Gift is Helping Families Connect through Creativity!

1. Save Time & Invest in Creativity!

We know how precious time is, and we value your time with your kiddos. So rather than spending your time researching, shopping and preparing, let us do the prep work and you have fun being creative together! With We Craft Box, all of the materials are provided, along with two to three crafts tailored to that month’s box for the kiddos to create!

2. Stress-Free Quality Time Crafting with the Kids!

With so many family obligations and responsibilities people juggle today it’s hard to get quality time in. Stress no more! Spend less time worrying about the next time you’ll do something fun with kids and spend more time embarking on a crafting journey with the whole family! We Craft Box makes spending quality time together easy, and crafting as stress-free as possible with easy-to-follow directions in each box for every craft. 

3. Use Your Imagination

Each craft box comes with a unique themed story. Families enjoy bonding through arts and crafts in talking about the stories and letting their imaginations run free. Using the stories and crafts as a tool families are being creative and strengthening bonds.

4. Make Memories Together!

We Craft Box allows you to unplug from the screen, and be present in the moment. Be silly, be creative, be imaginative, but most importantly, be together! Each box is an experience rather than a toy. This means that you’ll be gifting memories with your children, which is a thoughtful and powerful gift that gives everyone the warm and fuzzies. 

5. Connecting Families

Sometimes family members do not always live nearby, but We Craft Box makes showing love from a distance easy peasy! We Craft Box makes a great gift for grandparents, uncles, aunts and close family friends to send to the kiddos for any occasion with a personal gift message that will fill the kiddo’s heart and think of you every time they see the bright orange and teal box arrive at their doorstep!

“We love the we craft box!!!!!! As a busy working mama I love that everything we need to do amazing crafts are sent right to our door. No more searching Pinterest, buying supplies and then finding the time to do them. The boxes are full of well thought out and quality crafts. My kids love them!” -Rachel



“I was very stressed trying to find the perfect Christmas gift for my 5 year old grandson who has a giant playroom full of toys. After doing tons of research I found “We Craft Box”. It turned out to be the perfect gift I was looking for! He sent me a video of him when the box arrived in the mail. (This alone was exciting!) Next my daughter called to tell me he worked non-stop for over 3 hours crafting and the best part he could do the crafts by himself. The only problem now if figuring out where to proudly display all of his works of art. So glad I didn’t waste money on another toy that would have be disguarded in the toy box in January…now each month he gets a thrilling mail delivery and spends time enjoying the creative time. I recommend this gift subscription to all other grandparents searching for a gift that will be enjoyed!” -Christine



“I purchased this program for my grandson. He is excited to receive the box every month and to see what neat things are going to be in the box to make. These boxes are really great for a rainy day or just for some extra special time for the whole family instead of watching TV. We have received 3 boxes now and I am really impressed at the cute ideas that come in the box, and what is really nice, it comes with everything, no thinking of ideas and then running around shopping for supplies… they come right to your door. Thank you We Craft Box… we love your product!” -Kimberly

2018 August Llamas Getting Ready For Take Off!

Kicking off August with our Hot Air Balloon Lollipop Llamas!

Our special crafting material this month was the Wikki Stix Wax Crafting sticks!

We used these Wikki Stix to decorate our Lollipop Llamas. 💜

Our Lollipop Llamas are missing one thing… their Lollipops!

We made some of our lollipops with Wikki Stix and some of our other lollipops with Model Magic!

This Lollipop looks yummy enough to eat!

Now that our lollipops are done, we can move onto the Llama’s scenery that they will be looking over as they are traveling in their hot air balloon.

The Lollipop Llamas are ready to fly over the hills and mountains… they just need their Hot Air Ballon!

Look at that Llama go!

Now all of our llamas are ready to go on an adventure! 😁

Thank you for joining us and our Lollipop Llama friends for a fun adventure. Don’t forget to join us for our September adventure. Here’s a hint for what you can expect… 🤖

Until then, stay up to date with all of the crafts we share on 

We Craft Box Goes Fishing in July for Some Fun Crafts!

We Craft Box is going fishing in July with these special sparkle fish! Some of the special materials we used this month include sparkles, sequins, and coffee filters. All of these fun materials turned out to be a bright and fun craft for the kiddos to enjoy.

We started crafting our underwater world by making our sparkle fish.

Now that we have some sparkly fish friends to occupy our underwater world, we have to create some hidden treasure chests for the sparkly fish to protect.

Now that we have secret treasure chests for the sparkly fish to swim around, we need to create our underwater world for the fish to live in. After we finish the underwater world we will be able to watch our fish swim together in their new tank!

This is the clear outer layer of the tank. We added some fun plants and blue streaks that looks like water inside the tank.

This is the fish tank background we made so it would look like our sparkly fish are swimming under water.

We also colored and cut up some coffee filters so they would look like plants for the fish tank for our sparkly fish to swim through.

For the last part of our fishing journey, we go to put our sparkly fish on some string and hang them from the top of our We Craft Box so they could swim freely in their new underwater world.

Thank you for coming on this fishing journey with us!

Setting Up Camp in June with the We Craft Box Camping Bears!

We set up camp in June with our camping bear friends! This camping scene was super fun to make and it turned out adorable.

In the month of June we got to work with some fun materials like pine cones, beans, and oil pastels!

The first step in our camping journey was to make the camping bears!

These bears were simple to make! Attaching the pinecones together for the body and using a paper bear head, our new friends turned out so cute it was unBEARable.

We then were able to add some beans to the face, which gave the bears their quirky personality.

Now that we had our bears we moved on to making our campfire!

The best part about this campfire is that it doubles as an ornament.

With a few oil pastels, glue and some beans, we had a nice and toasty campfire for our bear friends to enjoy!

We finally ended our camping trip with the bears by pitching the tents and staring out into the stars.

Our bear friends had an amazing time in the great outdoors!

We Craft Box also had a great time crafting our bear friends and their camping scene.

Thanks for coming camping with us and be sure to stay tuned for our next crafting journey!

Last Day of School Sign


I can’t believe that the school year is over! Time really does fly with the little ones. And while I know there are a billion other things going on, one of my favorite things to do is a first and last day of school sign. I’ve been working on my brush lettering and put it to the test with some fun techniques that are super easy to do. so even if you are just writing in two colors here you can get a beautiful watercolor effect too!


What you need:

  • Thick watercolor paper of any size
  • Washable markers (I’m partial to Crayola)
  • Bling Bling – I went with Glitter and Sequins
  • Glitter washi tape or stickers could be an easy hack for bling too
  • Paint brush and water or a water pen
  • Your trusty glue stick

I always write out my type on a scratch piece of paper to see what spacing should look like before getting started – its kinda like a rough draft. If you want to play it safe you can very highly draw in your layout to limit error. Then go for it! I start by doing all caps with one color then adding a complimentary color next to it, or a color that will blend with it nicely. Once you have all your base colors in you can add the water! this is so simple and easy – I love it! All you have to do it add water to the washable markers and they become watercolor… how stinking easy is that?! bend your colors as you’d like, if things get too soupy blot with a dry paper towel to control. if you want some fun effects toss some sea salt on the watercolor while its wet for a star like speckled look.

Now you can keep going or hit that bad boy with a hair dryer so you don’t smudge. Next you can use your glue stick to make your glitter design. I just did some simple lines, but you could draw stars, or even add to your type.

Use the same method above with your sequins. be sure to press down gently to be sure they are adhering to the paper well.


Let your piece dry completely. Once dry curve your paper a bit and dump the excess glitter into the trash (or a tupperware for re-use). And you’re all set! I love comparing the first day and last day too, so don’t forget to do a side by side after your official last day of school shot.

Wishing you all a fun and happy summer!

Painted Pots – Kids DIY – Perfect Handmade Gift

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share with you an easy and fun crafts to do with the kids. This is one of those sweet keepsake gifts that will be cherished, and be fun in the making. I like the idea of filling the pot with herbs, so it could live in the kitchen, by a sink… perhaps and if your Mom is anything like me maybe that location will give the plant a fighting chance at life, rather than a quick, and parched death 😀


Lets start off with materials. You’ll need some basic things that can be picked up at the craft store or even hardware store. Check out our list below:


  • Terra cotta pots of various sizes
  • Chalk paint (2-3 colors)
  • Black sharpie parker, or paint pen
  • Paintbrush (various sizes)
  • Masking or painters tape
  • Cup of water for painting
  • Paper plates or bowl (to put paint on)
  • Q-tips
  • Plants for your pots

To get started, decide on your color scheme. Then using your painters tape, mask off the top of your pot so you can paint it a differnt color from your bottom. Bet sure to press along the edge of the tape to ensure a good seal. To get started with paint, I like to dip my brush in the water before going straight into the paint (it makes the paint go on smoother). Then load up your brush and start painting! I like to put my hand in the pot to hold it so I can easily paint and not get fingerprints on it. Ok, the top is painted, let it dry for a few minutes then remove the tape and paint the bottom portion.


You may need a few coats if you are using a lighter color. I did about 2-3 to get the brightness I was shooting for. The nice thing about the chalk paint is that it dries quickly! So doing a couple of coats is a snap! Now that we have our base colors on its time to “zhuzh”! Get fabulous friends, bring out all the polka dots and lashes!


To get the dots on in an easy way for you or the kids, use the other end of your paintbrush. You can also use a Q-tip, I recommend this for the littles, it makes this job lots of fun. I liked adding hair to the ones we did… gave them a bit more personality!


Now we can draw on the face! Really you can do this at any stage… I like using the paint markers from Sharpie, but a regular Sharpie works great too. Add lashes, freckles, smiles, cheeks and lips to those happy pots. You can add a message on the inside or the bottom of the pot, don’t forget the date too! It’s such a treat to pick up something, like this pot, and remember your baby made it… and then upin further inspection… holy cow that was 10 years ago?! Where does the time go? Anyway, add the year, you or your own mother will appreciate it one day 😉


Like I said earlier, I enjoy gifting herbs that can be used in the kitchen. They are useful and a sweet reminder of your little crafter that made it for you. My son and I chose some “hairy herbs” to use… Oregano and Thyme. You can add a few stones in the bottom of the pot then just add you plant and, wallah! A very thoughtful and fun handmade gift to make your Mom or Grandmom smile.

I hope you all enjoy painting pots together! Happy Crafting And Enjoy!


May’s Crafts Are Out of This World!

Prepared to be blown out of this world with May’s We Craft Box!

In May, we got to meet some new friends and the crafts were extra space-cial.

This month we got to work with some fun materials like silly putty and glow paint!

These are all of the materials needed, which are all included in the subscription box. This makes crafting easy peasy!

To start our adventure into space, we needed to make Zork and His Space Cruiser.

Above are all of the materials needed to make the fearless Zork and his sturdy space cruiser.

First, we started out with the space cruiser.

The little black stickers made great windows for the space cruiser. The big green sticker was for Zork’s cockpit!

Now that the space cruiser had been assembled, we needed to make Zork so he could begin his journey to space!

Once Zork and his cruiser had been made, the kiddos had to decorate the cruiser with glow paint so it could be seen in outer space!

Zork’s space cruiser certainly glowed bright after adding the paint!

We had one little problem before we could embark on our journey to space.

We had to make Outer Space first!

We put a flat sheet of white paper up against the back of the propped up We Craft Box as our outer space backdrop. We were able to hold this flat sheet of paper up with poster tac.

We also added some star stickers and glow paint splatters to our star scape.

Making the splatters was super fun and interactive for the kiddos! With some glow paint, straws, and toothbrushes, these splatters were easy to make.

To complete our outer space scene, we needed to make some planets.

We painted the inside of some transparent ornaments and hung them to back of the We Craft Box with a pipe-cleaner. We used some stickers to hold the pipe-cleaners to the back of the box.

We also added a lot of white glow paint to the planets so Zork would be able to see them easily when he was flying his cruiser.

After a fun and creative journey, Zork was able to make it to outer space!

Thanks for coming on an awesome outer space adventure with Zork!

April Shower’s Bring a New Craft Box!

It’s that month where it just does not seem to stop raining and the grass grows two times faster than it normally does!

With rain comes spending more time inside, so here are a couple of crafts that were a part of the April box that we spent our time doing!

All of the materials needed to make these fun crafts on a gloomy day were provided in April’s We Craft Box.

The special art material for the April Box were the Magic Nuudles and beads!

In our first craft, we made some rainbow daisies to brighten up the room.

In this craft, we used the Magic Nuudles as petals for the daisies.

The green pipe cleaners also made awesome stems!

Those are the cutest rainbow daisies I think I have ever seen!

Every flower needs a little water to stay nourished, so that is why our next craft is making the Happy Raincloud.

In this craft, we used the beads to look like streaks of rain!

It was a cute and creative touch to this craft.

Typically rainclouds make me feel gloomy, but I can’t help but smile when looking at this one!

The best part of all is that the kids had a blast making these crafts!
