Looking for the perfect preschool subscription box for your 3, 4, or 5-year-old son or daughter? Here are the 10 best preschool subscription boxes for your little preschooler.
There is something so fun about preschoolers.
They are these cute, little people who are trying so hard to learn about everything, and do things for themselves.
As they are little sponges seeking to learn, it’s a great time to seize on the opportunity to teach them.
However, I do not think kids need to go to a formal preschool, in part because you, as their parent, can teach them everything they need to know, and they’ll benefit so much from being with you (Note: this is not a judgment or condemnation to working parents or those who choose to send their kids to a regular preschool).
I love subscription boxes for kids, especially educational subscription boxes.
I had written another post featuring subscription boxes for toddlers, but decided it was time to hunt out the best subscription boxes for preschoolers!
I may homeschool my kids, but I am not all that crafty, and preschool crafts intimidate me, so I love when I can get a preschool subscription box loaded with all the supplies, materials, instructions, and teaching aids to help me help my kids.
I have tried out several of these monthly preschool subscription boxes on this list, and selected boxes that covered a variety of topics, and not solely ones which focus on the alphabet, phonics, and identifying the A-B-C’s.
While those are great, it’s also super fun to just explore all parts of our wonderful world with preschoolers, to get them excited about everything.

Preschool Subscription Boxes
The Preschool Box
The Preschool Box is an educational monthly subscription box that teaches your preschooler ages 3-6 basic reading and math skills, preparing them for elementary school.
They focus on ways to teach your child beginning phonics skills such as learning to identify, write, and sound out the letters of the alphabet and work up to sounding out and writing words.
Every box has a set of focus skills with hands-on activities, crafts, and worksheets, parent instruction guide, book, stickers, flashcards and other games.
We received The Preschool Box, and it’s really is a great box!
They provided all the beans to count with, numbered cups, flashcards, fuzzy things, instructions, folders, everything you’d need for the four weeks of learning a new letter each week.
My daughter has since called it her school box and loves working on those same activities again and again.
At $32.95/month (with cost decreasing for longer pre-paid plans), it’s very affordable! They also offer 2-kid and 3-kid subscription options for those who have multiple preschoolers at home!
Plus, a portion of all their sales goes towards buying school supplies and other necessities for children at the Rafiki Orphanage in Uganda, Africa.
Order The Preschool Box and start teaching your little ones!
Little Passports: Early Explorers
Designed for kids ages 3-5, each package has a unique theme (like Art, Music or Food) and teaches your child about the world.
For example, the Oceans package contains an educational fishing game that teaches children about different sea creatures, and contains a saltwater science experiment and a booklet containing fun facts about each of the world’s oceans.
The first box sends a fun orange suitcase, a wall-sized world map, a 20-page activity booklet, a luggage tag, stickers, and photo.
Each subsequent box contains a 20-page activity booklet, fun souvenirs, trading cards, letters and photos, stickers and luggage tags, fun activities, educational toys, and learning games.
This preschool subscription box is a great way to inform your kid about themes like landmarks, music, animals, oceans, natural wonders, space, world discoveries, dinosaurs, science, celebrations, habitats, transportation, insects, and sports.
It’s only $19.95/month, but just $16.95/month when you do a yearlong subscription. Shipping costs are not included.
Music Adventure Box
Take your preschooler on a fun musical adventure every month with a Music Adventure Box!
I actually personally know the creator of this box, from my college days, and she sent me a box to check out with my 4-year-old, and she adored it, especially the paper dolls and the songs we sang.
Every Music Adventure Box is different and exciting, with a different theme every month. Each preschool box contains a music game to play together with your preschoolers, movement ideas and historical facts about composers and their pieces, musical instruments, and even a new children’s storybook that you can sing the words of with your children.
Sometimes you will receive stuffed animals, puppets, or other fun items in your box to play with.
In addition to the supplies in the box, your subscription comes with a subscription to the Mastery Music Academy website, an exclusive online member site where Miss Emilie teaches children’s songs and games through video.
You will also receive a digital file of the songs in the box so you can play them over and over!
Subscriptions are $30/month, less if you pay upfront for a longer subscription.

KidArtLit – Preschool Art Subscription Box
The KidArtLit subscription box is where art meets storytime and helps you build a family culture of creativity and reading.
Their aim is to help raise creative and curious kids, build a curated home library, help you connect as a family, make reading and art part of your family’s routine and give experiences rather than “stuff.”
Each month you receive a handpicked boutique-quality picture book with a related open-ended art project to go along with it for your family, a “ready-set-go pack”, and a mini-magazine.
All are geared toward children ages 3-8.
The art projects might focus on painting, printmaking, textiles or sculpture.
The art projects are not designed to be Pinterest perfect, but your own unique creations (though some structure is provided).
They also give you a generous amount of art supplies, enough for you to do each project twice which is pretty awesome, especially if you have multiple kids!
Designed by the award-winning Kiwi Co, Koala Crate is the subscription box line just for preschoolers ages 2-4.
Each box contains high-quality materials for 2-3 creative activities, Imagine! magazine, a parent guide with additional ideas, and additional online DIY ideas.
This monthly preschool box is sure to get them creating, crafting, learning, and improving those fine motor skills!

We Craft Box – Preschool Craft Subscription Box
We Craft Box is a kid monthly craft subscription box that comes with 2 to 3 prepared crafts.
Their emphasis is on adults having quality time being creative with their preschool kids 3 and up.
Each box contains materials you need to make 2 to 3 crafts with your preschooler. Some of their past boxes include making spiders with googly eyes, creating a Gingerbread house, and making cool face masks.
I love that they try to coordinate each box with holidays. I think this is a craft subscription box kids and their parents will enjoy doing together. They have great reviews, too!
It costs $29.99/month plus shipping, or less if you order a longer subscription.
Green Kid Crafts Junior Science & Craft Subscription
Green Kid Crafts is an award-winning monthly subscription box for preschool kids ages 2-4 that focuses on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) projects.
Each month your child will receive hands-on science and art kits to help inspire a new generation of leaders, artists, scientists, designers, and engineers.
Each box contains between 4-8 STEAM kits, a book, a mini-magazine. There are step-by-step instructions and all materials are made in the USA of quality eco-friendly materials.
This is another preschool subscription box that we have tried out (see my Green Kid Craft review) and have sincerely enjoyed and loved! The projects are fabulous and there are so many to do for each box!
Boxes are $29.95/month plus free shipping in the US. You can save $120/year when you do the year-long membership. They also have sibling add-ons.
If you love the idea of children’s book subscription boxes to build up your child’s library, then you’ll love Bookroo!
Bookroo sends you 2-3 age-appropriate individually wrapped books each month. Not only does your child get mail, but he gets to unwrap presents inside of the box!
It’s such a great, and affordable way to discover new books with your child each month, and encourages parent-child bonding as you sit and read-aloud to your child.
We have received several boxes from Bookroo and we’ve loved all the books they’ve sent us!
They sell board books, pictures books, and chapter books (and if you have multiple children, they will switch off which months you get what type of book so everyone’s happy!).
As 3-year-old preschoolers, if you still want to get them board books, each board book subscription sends you 3 books a month. If you prefer the picture book subscription, each box comes with 2 hardcover picture books.
Whichever subscription you choose, it is only $19.99/month plus $4.99 shipping. If you do a year-long subscription, it’s just $16.85/month plus shipping.
Amazon STEM Club
Did you know Amazon has a STEM Club Toy Subscription?
Each month they ship you discounted STEM toys, handpicked by Amazon’s Toy Experts. These toys work to develop a child’s skills in logic, creativity, and problem-solving.
They have three different subscription plans, based on your child’s age, including one just for 3- to 4-year-old preschoolers!
Your first month is $2 off, making it only $17.99 (with free shipping, of course), and then each month after that is $19.99/box plus taxes. But, the toys your child receives are up to 40% off through this membership, making it a great way to get STEM toys for cheap!
Veggie Buds Club
Veggie Buds Club offers a month’s worth of fun and engaging activities on a single veggie! Their goal is to make veggies fun so kids will eat their veggies (or so we can only hope)!

Each month your kids will receive:
- fun learning activities
- incentive stick chart and stickers
- cooking activities
