7 Awesome Educational Subscription Boxes for Older Kids (Including Teenagers)

It seems like so many of the best educational subscription boxes are designed for little kids, doesn’t it? While I think it’s awesome that they have so many options, as a mom to a teenager I need something that’s more appropriate for older children. While they may be a little harder to find, they do exist! Here are 8 great options to prove it (I was aiming for 10, but fell a little short). 

I’ve included videos (either from the company or from an unboxing review) when I could find them to give you a better overview of what to expect with each box. 

FYI, this post does use affiliate links, so if you buy through them I get a tiny commission at no extra charge to you. Thanks a bunch!

This one is designed specifically for girls, and customers say that the activities are super engaging and creative They offer two different kits, including one for 6th-8th grade. I really wish this existed when I was in school. I’m so awful at math, I could have used something that made it more fun (or at least easier to understand).

4. Terra Create

Terra Create is a monthly craft subscription box for teens. I love it because all of the projects are gender-neutral, so it’s equally as appealing to both boys and girls. While it may not seem as educational as some of the others on this list, the arts are just as important as other core classes! Plus, many of the projects also help teens learn about other cultures. I couldn’t find a video for this one, though.

Craftsman Crate is a wonderful way to teach both boys and girls some new “handy” skills. Think of it as shop class in a box! Each kit comes with everything you need- including tools that you can use again and again- to complete the featured project.

6. MATTER

I mention this one in pretty much every post about subscription boxes because it’s just such a neat concept! The call themselves “the science club for the modern era,” definitely a fitting slogan. Every month, your teen receives a box filled with 4-6 of of the neatest forms of matter on the planet. It could be fossils, specimens, artifacts, or even interesting tools and materials. In past boxes, people have received real NASA computer chips, a fossil of a fish from 50 million years ago, cool gemstones, and more.

7. SpearCraft Book Box

Of all the book boxes available for older kids and teens, this is quite possibly my new favorite. It’s a quarterly subscription box filled with YA or Middle Grade books (choose which option you want when you order), plus $18+ worth of “bookish goodies” and personalized author swag. 

As seen in Oprah Mag SpearCraft Book Box is a monthly subscription box full of goodies that you can open in the comfort of your own home. We’ve taken the guess work out of finding your next read by always including a gorgeous new hardcover YA novel, personalized author swag, and handpicked bookish goodies for you to unbox and enjoy all month long.

If your teen wants to learn more about forensic science like mine does, this is a fantastic option. While it’s definitely geared more towards older teens (16+), they do say that kids as young as 10 can enjoy it with a little supervision. Each box comes with $50+ worth off supplies and pro-grade tools to try out things like fingerprinting, collecting shoe prints, and more. None of the items are dangerous, don’t worry.

Like I said, it’s hard to find educational boxes geared specifically towards older kids. I really was aiming for 10, but just couldn’t find good options for the last two without stretching the definitely of “educational” a little too far. I don’t want to share non-relevant stuff just so I can hit a prettier number than 8. 😀 If you know of any, though, let me know and I’ll add them in!
