Issue 3 {MAY}: Action Pack: A Mini-Mag for kids who want to do stuff will be available after the weekend [In the meantime check out issues 1 & 2 in our shop]. This issue’s theme is ‘Sew & Tea’ and is full of sewing projects and tea projects – Afternoon tea anyone?

Our philosophy for the Action Pack is to inspire kids to be creative, to help them develop healthy habits, to feed their tender inquisitive minds, and to challenge their imaginations. This ‘Action Pack’, is for busy parents and creative energetic kids.

The Action Pack is available in an easy downloadable PDF format. Priced at only $5, and with no advertising, this month’s issue is jam packed with 25 pages of projects – with a Sew & Tea theme – inside you will find sewing, cooking a little science and lots of tea tasting plus lots of facts and some fun printables and with a bonus Mother’s Day project.

The Action Pack is aimed specifically at kids (aged 7+) but many projects would also be perfectly suited to those a little younger with parental supervision and young at heart grownups too!

  • Instructions for tea dyeing fabric and then sewing a tea cosy
  • How make a fabric tea cup and felt jam tarts
  • Lots of recipes for tea tasting and cooking with tea
  • Plus lots of amazing tea facts and cool printables – including a teapot poster
  • And a bonus Mother’s day project

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 soon in our shop.
