Their recently launched themed activity boxes have quickly gained interest amongst the families of young girls, aged between 5 and 11. Now, GirlCratery is reaching out to community groups who run various after-school and weekend activities and workshops with girls and are looking for new ways to engage and educate them, whilst having a lot of fun.

GirlCratery is offering their captivating and skill-building activity crates at a moment in which, according to Afterschool Alliance, the parents of more than 28 million elementary and middle school-aged children work outside the home, generally until 6pm. This means that, increasingly, parents have turned to after-school providers and community groups to care for their children for at least three hours a day.
However, GirlCratery also understands that many of these after-school community groups are not particularly well funded. As such, they believe their themed boxes are both a rich time-making activity but also a money-saving one.
With just one subscription, the company believes that young girls can be kept occupied for hours. All of their hands-on boxes have been developed to encourage learning independence, creativity, STEM skills, and a bold sense of exploration and adventure.
All of their subscription crates have a distinct theme and are filled with useful tools that a community group or after-school provider can use time and time again.
GirlCratery currently has a jewelry-making crate, as well as a crafting, geocaching, baking, gadgets and gizmos, fitness and fairy-themed crate, and is constantly adding more to that list. They all encourage hands-on learning and can be used for individual or group projects.
GirlCratery is on a mission to change the way that girls play and learn. They are also on a mission to find new ways to encourage analog or screen-free fun. They are confident that their DIY project boxes will benefit any after-school care provider or community group.
A spokesperson for the girls’ education experts said, “What is GirlCratery? It’s the hands-on activity box that inspires confidence and creativity. All girls love the changing items and Girl Scouts especially love using our crates to earn badges.??”
