Little Bit About Penny & Her Inspiration
"I grew up in the country in the Midwest - we had a creek and an acre of woods in the backyard. This is where my love of nature began.
I started my career as a ranger working in CA, UT, NM, AK, OR and WA, then got my Masters degree in environmental management.
After becoming a mother, I realized the need for a convenient and sustainable solution for children’s activities, which led to the creation of Green Kid Crafts.
My inspiration is my kids, the amazing work of Mother Nature, and the idea of creating future environmental leaders through our work at Green Kid Crafts."
1 to 4 year olds:
5 to 7 year olds:
"Crafting with children develops their creativity and confidence, and doing it together fosters family togetherness. I believe that happy kids make happy adults, which leads to a happier world. :)"
"We love to decorate our moving boxes with paints and markers and turn them into huge intricate forts."
Green Kid Crafts is all about providing a convenient, earth friendly solution for enriching activities for kids.
Our goal with our craft kit subscription service is three fold: to help busy parents spend more quality time with their children, to provide kids with opportunities for fun, confidence and creativity boosting projects, to inspire the next generation of environmental leaders.
In addition, we strive to be a model for corporate social responsibility, retaining a carbon neutral status and donating a portion of every sale to environmental charities.
Penny has founded and continues to foster an amazing site, filled with tons of fantastic ideas.
Her passion really shows in everything she does! Even a simple interview with us :)
