From cooking kits to craft boxes, from science sets to books, there are activity boxes to cater to all imaginations
Schools are out for the spring and summer and parents across the UK are looking for inspiration and activity ideas to do at home with all members of the family during the COVID-19 outbreak. The public may be tucked away indoors, but one thing that cannot be contained is the joy of playing, crafting and learning.
Activity subscription boxes are a fantastic way to try new skills at home instantly, with everything you need to do so neatly packaged and arriving through the letterbox. There are tonnes of activity box subscriptions available and plenty of discount codes and offers to help you on your way. Here are some of the best activity boxes for kids available and introductory discounts.
Baker Ross — Arts & Craft
Not only is Baker Ross a one-stop-shop for amazing, unique and educational kids arts and craft supplies but they run a craft box subscription service Craft-It. Kids receive new craft activity ideas and supplies each month.
Baker Ross activity boxes are designed to be educational, cost-effective, exciting and convenient. Each box comes with two craft packs, an activity book and stickers. Try Craft-It and take 50% off your first box, priced at £4.95.
ToucanBOX — Arts & Crafts
ToucanBOX runs a flexible activity box subscription service that delivers an eclectic mix of materials to encourage crafting, creativity and learning (inspired by the Montessori learning principles no less).
Kids can enjoy the hands-on process of making before playtime as their diverse selection of crafts turn into interactive games, dress-up, role-play, toys and much more.

Kiwi Co — science, art, design projects
It's hard to summarise what Kiwi Co has to offer as they truly have so much! Their monthly delivery 'crates' are suitable for ages 0—104 (yes, believe it!) and have won multiple awards including a Parents Choice Gold Award and Dr. Toy's award for one of the Ten Best Creative Toys in the US.
