I really love the way that the pictures were incorporated into the game. Family is important to her and she is going to connect with that... The games are really reinforcing what she does at school.

What types of activities come in the pack?
The pack is made up of various paper-based activities and projects that change from month to month. Some of the activities require cutting, coloring, taping etc. and adult supervision/participation may be required for some of the project assembly.

Do I have to upload photos every month?
No. We utilize the photos you upload from your first session to populate each monthly pack. If you would like to update photos, please contact customer service prior to that month's shipment.

What is an unplugged experience?
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children should drastically limit their screen time. Cut + Play provides a fun and "unplugged" or "off-screen" experience for your child using old school paper as its platform.

Can I just buy one month?
You can sign up for the monthly subscription service and cancel after your first month if you do not wish to continue receiving the packs.

There is no long term commitment to sign up for the play pack. You can cancel at any time.

If I have two kids, do I need to purchase two packs?
Each pack is specifically made for one child with activities centered around their name and face. However, the packs do contain games with images of all the family members. Each child will need a subscription in order to receive their own customized pack.
