Happy Hedgehog Post Review
I recently discovered a subscription box for families that is so neat!
The box is Waldorf inspired and is perfect for families looking to create wonderful memories with each other.
Each quarter, you will receive a seasonal themed Happy Hedgehog Post box delivered right to your door and it is absolutely loaded with high quality, beautiful treasures.
I received the summer seasonal box to review and it contained a wonderful collection of nature-based and inspired crafts to make magical summer memories with my children.
The Waldorf summer box includes:
- A Mandala Hand Embroidery Kit – made on Essex Cotton Linen fabric and with DMC Floss in Summer shades of yellow and orange.
- A Wet Felted Beach Play Mat Kit – made with luscious wool in blues and tans, a silk/wool blend in
ocean, white silk, wool nepps andcore wool.
- A Dye Your Own Play Silk Kit – made with a silk square scarf, pressed leaves and solar dye.
- A Summer Postcard to decorate your nature table
- Special gifts – Olive Oil Soap (a favorite of wet
felters) and a bag of Ocean Treasures (perfect pairing to your ocean playmat)
- A Seasonal Guide with recipes, story, poems, book list and more.
- Membership to their private Facebook group where you will find video tutorials, craft challenges, and more
The girls and I dove right in and have been having so much fun! We made the wet felted beach play mat a few days and the very next day we dyed our own
I’ve seen so many amazing felt play mats (like this one, for example, that I found on Etsy) and had been wanting to purchase one but they are so expensive! So, when I opened the summer Happy Hedgebox box, imagine my excitement to find everything I needed to make my very own! The tutorial was very easy – easy enough to do with Miss 1 and just-turned-3 at my feet, wanting to help. 🙂
Miss 6 and 8 also enjoyed helping me arrange the wool, spraying the water, and soaping up the felt.
I actually have a large amount of wool in my closet, as I have been wanting to make some wool crafts but I wasn’t sure where to start, so there it sits lol. That’s what I love about this subscription box – everything I needed was included, as well as easy-to-follow instructions.
After we finished our felt play mat, the Calico Critters (or bunny house critters, as my girls call it) throughouly enjoyed it.
The girls and I are so excited to make more wet felted play mats – they’ve been working on sketching out designs. 🙂
Next on the agenda was painting our own silk. The girls loved this activity and the leaf prints on it made it even more exciting!
Again, this was simple enough to do with my little helpers and I loved that it was another project that could actually be used after we had completed it.
Beautiful, right? We love play silks!
I sketched the pattern on the fabric and have just started stitching it. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
The girls loved all the sea treasures too!
If this Waldorf inspired seasonal subscription box seems just as magical to you as it does to me, trust me, and order your box before the cutoff (July 7)
Also, Happy Hedgehog Post has graciously offered me a discount to pass along to you for $5 off your box. Use coupon code DANA at checkout to save.
I also wanted to point out that before you see the price of the box, remember that it is only a seasonal box – this is not a monthly payment. You will receive 4 boxes a year, so when you look at it that way, the price seems very doable.
Also, because it is a quarterly box, instead of a monthly box, you won’t feel rushed to get through it quickly, or worry about filling your home with too many things.
