Everyone loves getting things in the mail, EVERYONE! Why not surprise the favorite kid in your life with some mail by ordering a monthly subscription box? As a Nanny, these are my favorite monthly subscription boxes for kids spanning topics from travel, science, reading, and just plain fun.
Monthly Subscription Boxes for Kids
Kids Monthly Subscription Boxes: Little Passports
Each month a new package arrives in the mail that focuses on a specific country (even in the science editions!) My personal favorite has been the World Edition for Japan. We did origami, learned how to count in Japanese, and made a yummy snack!

Kids Monthly Subscription Boxes: OurShelves
Want to share stories with your children about diverse people and families, but having a hard time finding some, that’s where OurShelves comes in.
Each month a pack of 3 or 5 books can be delivered to you directly with stories proudly featuring “feminist, racially and ethnically diverse, and LGBTQ+ characters and families, among other under-represented identities in children’s books.”
Each book OurShelves sends out is hand picked by a curation team made up of librarians, teachers, academics, psychologists and parents ensuring books are top quality.
