Horse Play! by Deanna F. Cook

A treasure trove of fun for every horse-loving girl! Horse Play! is packed with great activities and projects, from crafting a mini barn and pasture to designing your dream horse, sewing a pony pillow, making a shelf for model horses, and colouring a pull-out poster. Quizzes, checklists, and fill-in-the-blanks invite you to test your knowledge of horses, breeds, riding, and horse care. And this kit-in-a-book also includes stickers, a stencil, pop-out cards, and complete plans for a Horsing-Around party with games, invitations, a horse pinata, party grub, and must-watch horse movies.


Gold Award Recipient: 2016 Mom s Choice Awards Recipient of 2016 NAPPA (National Parenting Product Award) Award The Horse Play! activity book by Deanna Cook and Katie Craig is full of creative ideas -- from crafting to cooking -- for horse-loving kids to do around the house this summer. -- Cool Mom Picks After my 10-year-old and her little sister finished this [horse pillow] project, I didn t hear a peep out of them for another hour at least. They were busying themselves with the Horseplay! book coloring a poster that was included, reading facts about horses, planning parties (the book includes super-cute cupcake toppers and suggestions for horse-themed parties). It really is a great book for kids her age. -- Baby Center Cook and Craig fill this interactive activity book with equine facts, games, book recommendations, and trivia, as well as a handful of details about riding and interacting with real-life horses. Horse-related craft projects include making a sock hobbyhorse, horseshoe wall art, and a barn for model horses made from a cardboard box. A party-themed chapter provides suggestions for food to serve, horse-themed movies, and a punch-out card game (stickers and other party goodies, such as cupcake toppers, are included as well). Whether readers are experienced riders or equestrians in the making, they should find easy inspiration for both solo projects and group fun. -- Publisher's Weekly
