Carefree Crafts is a monthly kid’s craft subscription club aimed at kids 3-10. Each month you’ll get a curated package of fun crafts that you and your kids can assemble. Each month is centered on a holiday or seasonal theme, and once completed; the crafts become toys or decorations for your kids.  The subscription starts at $9.95 with $4.95 for shipping.  So the total for subscription is $14.95/month (some months cost less, I did not find any that cost more).  You can also get crafts a la carte so if you only want a few, or want certain crafts you did not receive you can buy them.

Father's Day Craft Kit

 

Carefree Crafts came in a padded envelope via USPS.  I got a confirmation that it was shipped on Friday and got it in the mail Saturday.  It was addressed to S, so it made his day to get a package in the mail and not just an envelope.

When S and I opened the package it was stuffed full of crafts.  Here are the crafts included for this month. There were 5 Father’s Day related crafts enclosed in the Thanks, Dad kit.  It also gave a brief description of each craft and some tips on explaining ways to say thank you to dad on Father’s Day.

No-Sew Football Pillow-This pillow is such a cute idea.  It came with the stuffing which I was curious if it would (It says everything is included, but I wasn’t sure).  B is not into sports at all, so I thought this would be perfect for S’s cousin F to make for her dad.

Father’s Day Can Hug-This cozy is so cute.  How easy is this going to be to make?  They are just foam stickers you attach to the cozy.  We got a orange cozy instead of the blue one pictured.  S will be able to do this no problem, I just wonder how well the stickers are going to stick on the cozy.

Update: S loved making this cozy.  It was a very easy project for him to do.  After a few days the stickers are starting to peel off of the cozy, but S enjoyed making it and that is all that matters.  S decided he is going to give this to his Grandpa Bob for Father’s Day.

 

“You Rule” Tape Measure-I loved the idea of this and knew S would love to make it.  I mean a tape measure for him to use.  The box is made of cardboard so I am not sure it will make it past one or two playing’s before it is smooshed.  At least S will have a ton of fun making this.

Floating Foam Ship-This ship looks like it connects without using any glue.  This is like a puzzle fitting the pieces together correctly will make a ship.   It says this boat will float in a kiddie pool, or bowl of water.  I am debating do I save it with the pirate party supplies I have been collecting for a future pirate party (I am sure we will have one eventually.) or do I let S make it now and play with it?  Not sure what I am going to do.

Father’s Day Photo Frame-This is a cute foam frame that is made by sticking together with glue dots and foam stickers.  S should have no problem making this for S.  Now to find a picture.  That may be a problem.  I have not printed off pictures since the last Costco sale on 4×6’s.

Update: S made this for B, and I let him pick the stickers out of this collection and the cozy cup stickers that he thought described B.  Notice there are no sports stickers because that is not B at all and S does not associate that with B.  When he talks about his dada it is tools and cars.  S had a great time making this for B.

 

This month no glue stick!!!  Although everything did not come in a big Ziploc bag like past months, it was all individually packaged.  I think this is great to have everything you need to complete 5 really cute crafts.  I love that they all had one theme.  S and I will have fun doing all of these crafts and I liked not having to search for the glue dots or stickers to complete these projects. All of the crafts look like S can make them no problem.  He may need a little help with assembly but can decorate all of the crafts himself.   I will post pictures of the crafts when they are completed, along with how S liked them so check back to this posting to see the final products.

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
