The last week of the a school holidays seemed to drag on. Kids were getting a little fed up and Mummy’s purse was a little empty. Luckily we were sent a lovely pony craft kit from Interplay UK.
Mad about Ponies makes a great party time solution kit but it can also be used at home between friends. Inside the box is 6 resin-cast horse models, small paint pots, brushes and items for a racing game.
The idea is to first paint and decorate the horses and then race them later. The paints are all horsy colours such as brown, black, cream etc. I decided to throw in a few more bright colours in case they wanted more funky looking horses.
So Jordanna and a friend did all the horse painting. Ryan did not want to join in and Izebella is a little too young for them.
On the instructions are images of how the horses can be painted. Jordanna decided to follow these.
They have so far painted 3 horses and leaving the other 3 for another time.
Once painted and dried, the girls then set up a game.
There are 3 different games that can be played and each involves setting up the cardboard jumps and rolling the dice.
I think the girls had lots of fun both decorating their horses and playing a game and it certainly passed a good hour or so.
The Mad about Ponies craft set costs £19.99 from
Interplay. I can see it being perfect for small parties and especially parties at home.
