Kids love mail! Since my daughter was little, we have had the ritual of visiting the mailbox on the way home from bus pick up everyday. While I dread the bills and flyers that normally fill my box, my daughter hopes for something special for her. When she was little she was happy when I handed her the pizza flyer, but as she gets older, she is expecting something more personal and fun!
Recently, I have found a kid friendly subscription club that combines her love of art with her desire to receive mail: The Doodle Post
The Doodle Post is a Canadian subscription service that sends cool crafts to children age 5-10 at the beginning of each month. The kits are small and contain everything you need to complete an unique and decorative craft. The crafts take from 20-40 minutes to complete and range from things like DIY banners, ﬂower wreaths, jewelry making, card making, cake toppers, napkin rings and more. You can purchase $45/3 months, $50/4 months, $72/6 months, $85/9 months, $120/12 months plus shipping and HST (where applicable). The best is they are all prepaid term subscription so there is no fear of auto renewal or the need to cancel by a certain time.
The Doodle Post was created by Erin Wynn: a mother of two, a fine arts major and passionate crafter. Based on the premise that kids love to get mail, Erin designs each kit to cover a wide variety of materials and themes to keep young minds creative. All materials are locally sourced wherever possible.
Here is a sample of what you can expect!
The March craft was called Sweet Succulents.
The kit appears during the first week of the month in a cute cardboard envelope.
It comes with clear written and visual instructions to help you recreate the craft in your own home!
Each month, you are provided with a fun new craft!
Each kit includes everything you need to create a fun little craft.
