School’s out for the summer! 

Need something for the kids to do?  We've got you covered.

Inside KitHub's kid-sized toolbox is everything* you need to keep your 8-12-year-old busy doing something new every day for an entire week.

They'll have fun being creative, they’ll gain some real-world skills, and their confidence will grow by leaps and bounds.

And you? Get used to being the coolest parent on the block. Our Summer Camp Kit will make you look like a genius—even if this is your first time tinkering.

*You may need to dig up some scissors and craft materials.
