My Pretend Place includes little extras like this every month – a note, some stickers, and a handle to turn the box into a case for the finished products.
This is a letter sent to the kids talking about the importance of going to see the eye doctor, from Dr. Iris Ojo. I really like that they always include letters like this! It’s good reading practice, plus it adds wonderful imagination to the creative process.
This month there are three different projects, all supporting one terrific session of playing eye doctor. Fun!
This is a picture of the instructions, to give you some idea of how complete and easy to follow they are.
These were all the supplies that were included this month to finish our projects. Everything we needed was included except scissors.
Here are our completed projects! My little one didn’t know what to write on his eye chart yet, so I just made a sample. We also have two pairs of silly glasses and two orange flowered occluders. Everything turned out great! He tested everyone in the family!
The verdict: I am a fan of My Pretend Place Crafts. It’s really inexpensive and provides a lot of fun crafting time, plus the crafts are actually toys. This subscription does a lot to support imaginative play! I think this would be a great subscription for an adult who regularly keeps kids, like a grandmother or aunt or babysitter, due to its low-cost and the amount of time the kids can spend enjoying it.
