Dreamworks She-Ra Princess of Power is being released tomorrow on Netflix! I am especially excited to see this series. If they do as good of a job as they did with Voltron, this is sure to be a wonderful adaptation of the classic She-ra. In anticipation of the upcoming release, Dreamworks sent out a fun She-ra kit featuring many of the characters from the new series. My family absolutely loves this kit with the buttons, crafts, tiara, character cards, and cape!
First off, this kit came in with “SHE-RA’ right on the front of the box. Already the excitement was building and everyone wanted to know what wax inside this fun colorful box. I mean, who could resist opening it? I was lucky to get a picture.
Inside was a treasure trove of items that spilled out of the box in a sparkly She-ra explosion. We found pins, collector cards, a tiara, and a fun DIY Sword of Protection craft.
Usually when kits like this arrive, they are of cheaper quality made to simply advertise the show and move on. But Dreamworks likes to take it a step above the rest with their items and make sure quality is a major factor. For example, the collector cards are on thick glossy paper about 4 times the size of a trading card. They have wonderful colorful images with interesting facts about each character on the back.
The DIY Sword of Protection craft was and is awesome. Dreamworkd provided much of the items to make the sword worthy of a princess complete with Glitter and 3D Puff Paint. I was actually able to get scanned images of the craft before the scissors, glitter, and glue went flying around the room. Now you can create the craft to!
What you will need:
- Print the template 3 times. Print One on plain white cardstock, Print two of each on the color of cardstock you want your blade and grip to be.
- Cut out the white cardstock pattern and arrange them on a cardboard sheet to form the sword. Trace around the templates on to the cardboard and cut out the cardboard sword.
- Cut out your color cardstock pieces. Put glue on the back side and attach them to the corresponding blade and grip pieces on both sides of the sword.
The Sword of Protection is now done!
To get a copy of the templates click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. Than print and create to make your own Sword of Protection.
Thank you Dreamworks for the awesome She-Ra Princess of Power Kit!
