Who doesn’t love receiving mail? I know both my children and myself love receiving packages in the mail, especially subscription boxes. Subscription boxes are a recurring delivery of niche products. It’s such a fun experience opening up your box and seeing all the surprises.
There are so many different subscription boxes out there but I’m going to be listing those for your children and teens. More specifically, educational subscription boxes! With so many doing learning from home this year, these would make great editions for lessons or just entertainment. In this list you’ll find cooking, books, STEM and so many more subscription boxes.
