The Doodle Post is a Canadian subscription service that sends cool craft kits in the mail. Aimed at kids aged 5-10,  each small kit from The Doodle Post contains everything needed to complete at least one cool craft. Each project should take 20-40 minutes to complete. The  monthly project is always a surprise, but expect to receive things like DIY banners, flower wreaths, jewellery making, card making, cake toppers, napkin rings and more.

The Doodle Post was created by Erin Wynn: a mother of two, a fine arts major and passionate crafter. Based on the premise that kids love to get mail, Erin designs each kit to cover a wide variety of materials and themes to keep young minds creative. All materials are locally sourced wherever possible.

Kits are mailed to arrive the first week of every month. These pre-paid term subscriptions do not auto-renew.  The Doodle Post accepts credit card or Paypal.

The Doodle Post ships in a slim cardboard mailer, which fits into a condo sided mailbox.

The March craft is called Sweet Succulents. The project is a cactus plant that will "live" forever!

The kit includes all the supplies needed.

The instructions are clear and include pictures. Younger kids may need some help with the directions. Since I'm not seeing my nieces any time soon, I worked on this project on my own.

For supplies, there is a wood cactus (2 pieces), green paint pot, green felt pen, orange yarn and stickers, and a paper plant pot cutout.

First, I used the green marker to make vertical lines on the cactus.

Next, I took the green paint, and paint out the cactus. The card says to use lots of water to get a more translucent, watercolour effect.

Once the cactus is dry, I assembled the pieces, put the pot together, and added some orange "flowers" to the cactus crown.

The March package from The Doodle Post contained the supplies needed to make a fun craft project. Although this subscription is aimed at kids, I enjoyed working on it! I was really impressed with the kit. The cactus project is very unique and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Older kids would have no problem doing this one on their own, while younger kids would only need a bit of help from an adult. This subscription is perfect for any kid who loves to craft and create.
