My Pretend Place November 2015 Play Projects Review + Coupon
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box fore review.
The Pretend Place Play Projects for November 2015 arrived and this month, and the theme is about Native American Culture..My Pretend Place Play Projects is craft and play subscription box for children aged 3-8 years old. My Pretend Place also has a dress up box that is designed for 3-6 year olds. You can read the October 2015 Boy Cowboy Box, which was super cute and came with a toy horse to ride.
The Play Projects Subscription box is $15.00/month and each box comes with 2 crafts to complete. You get two of each craft, so this box is great for siblings or sharing with a friend. I am reviewing the November 2015 Play Projects Box.
My Pretend Place ships wrapped in paper.
The box is rather plain, so your child can decorate it as they wish.
Everything was wrapped in tissue paper.
This month, the craft is to make a Native American headdress. The letter explained that the chiefs of the tribe wore headdresses with many feathers, which were given when they performed an act of strength, bravery or loyalty. The goal of this craft is to craft a headdress and for children to think about acts of strength, bravery and loyalty they have done.
When I first saw this craft this month, I was a bit concerned about cultural sensitivity, but after reading the letter, I felt My Pretend Place created this craft to respect and honor the Native American culture.
There was an envelope with a magnet, a general card about My Pretend Place and stickers/handle to turn your box into a suitcase. You can see the finished suitcase at the end of this review.
There were step by step instructions on how to complete the project.
Headdress Adornments: Sticky felt pieces, beads, yard, and feathers were included to decorate the headdress.
Headdress Material: There were two felt pieces to decorate into headdresses.
L got to work right away making his headdress.
T had a great time peeling and sticking the felt pieces.
L and his finished headdress. T refused to wear his, but he did have fun making it.
These are the finished headdresses and the finished suitcase!
Final Thought: My sons enjoyed making the headdresses and I took time to tell each child more about Native American culture, which they enjoyed. I think this box is a good way to open the dialogue about Native American culture with your child.
