Whip Up Newsletter No.9 2011

It’s really exciting when you have a vision to create something and other people totally get it!

  • Yes its gender friendly – The projects in here are suitable for both boys and girls.
  • Yes it costs $5 – the price of a cup of coffee – and there are no ads – which I think is terribly important for kids.
  • Yes the projects in here relate to kid’s real world – use natural and healthy materials and help kids to explore their creative side.

If all that sounds like you and your family then you need the Action Pack! :)

What others are saying about the Action Pack:

  • “I will happily pay for a high quality, fun, creative magazine. Especially if there are no ads!”
  • “I am always on the lookout for cool project ideas, especially ones that relate to their real world and use natural materials.”
  • “What I love best is that its gender friendly. Yay.”
  • “So excited to see something geared towards children 7+. My boys are 6.5 and 8.5 and it can be a hard age to find stimulating and effective activities for.”
  • “We are slowly trying to unplug our house and this magazine looks like a great addition to our arsenal when we hear “what can we do?”.
  • “This is brilliant and I want to affirm Kathreen for encouraging kids to get off the couch and explore their creative side. … I’m sure younger kids would also benefit if their parents have the time to explore it with them.”
  • “I’m always looking for new fun things to do with my boys!”

I want to make pepper goldfish crackers instead. They are on my list (every vegetarian item from Smitten Kitchen is on my list!)!

*Thank you* for the link to “Where Children Sleep.” I am writing through tears, and encourage more readers to go and read/view this amazing book and then for each of us to commit ourselves to doing something to make things better – like Jade and all of her friends at Craft Hope, like all of the folks who have quilted for others around the world who have experienced tragedy and loss ~ every child deserves safety and health and love and a cozy place to sleep. Thank you again, Kathreen.

I shared this link with my children too and it made more sense to them when I tell them how lucky indeed they are to just have a bed to sleep in at night.
