Sneak Peek #1:

The top card on the deck shows an open book with a castle and a hot-air balloon, with the text Retellings in black just below. A teal border runs along the top and bottom of the image, with white font reading July Sneak Peek Creativity Card Game.

Every JUMP OFF THE PAGE box will include a brand new creativity-sparking card game, created by the OwlCrate Jr team and designed by Michelle Gray (@themichellegray)!

We had such a blast coming up with this activity. It is easy to throw in a backpack and the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon, alone or with creative friends!
