Issue 2 of’s printable magazine for kids (aged 7+) is bigger and better than issue 1 – if that is even possible.

Action Pack comes in an easy downloadable PDF format. With no advertising, this month’s issue is jam packed with 25 pages of projects – with a Seeds and Beads theme for the new planting season – inside you will find craft projects, gardening projects, science, cooking, drawing and more, everything a kid needs for a weekend (or two) of activities.

Our philosophy for Action Pack is all about inspiring kids to be creative, to develop and nurture healthy habits, and to feed inquisitive minds, and challenge imaginations. This ‘Action Pack’, is for busy parents and creative energetic kids.

In this pack you will find: a whole slew of projects [25 pages] around the theme Seeds & Beads, with lots of delicious cooking, science experiments, simple craft projects and outdoor activities.

  • Instructions to make garden lanterns and beaded dragonflies to decorate your garden.
  • Instructions to show you how-to draw realistic and cartoon dragonflies – the good insect!. Plus lots of fun facts and interesting information throughout.
  • How to grow seeds – make seed bombs, recycled plant containers and bird seed treats to attract birds to your garden + printable seed packets to save and store your seeds.
  • Learn all about how to use edible seeds in your cooking, make cakes, crackers and salad sprinkles as well as a refreshing Lavender Lemonade!

Our philosophy:
– We see kids as competent, creative and capable people.
– We believe that our kids are resourceful and clever and we try to enable them to develop their independence and creative minds within a secure and nurturing environment.
– We see learning opportunities everywhere. Learning should and can be fun.
– But we also know that parents are busy and cannot realistically be spending all weekend ‘playing’ with their kids.
– We want kids to get off the couch, away from the computer and learn the value and fun in making and doing stuff.

We really love the end result and hope you do too. Available now in our shop.

Hello! WE LOVE your Whipup magazines! We took your March issue on vacation with us and we LOVED it! We may the origami boats and made the water bombs too! I even put small notes of love inside of the water bombs for everyone and hid them in our scavenger hunt yesterday! They were beautiful made with real Japanese handmade origami paper! I think I may sew them together and make a garland of them!
Anyway, I ordered your second issue as soon as we got home and we can’t wait to get started on the birdseed cakes and we are going to make some lanterns for mother’s day gifts!
So I am writing you to say THANK YOU and to ask when will your May issue be out?? We can’t wait to order!
Thanks again!
