Issue 3 of’s printable magazine for kids (aged 7+) continues on from issue 1 & 2 by offering more opportunities for learning, fun and experimentation. This ‘Tea & Sew’ themed issue contains instructions & printables for a busy afternoon or two of tea drinking, cooking and sewing: lots of experimenting with flavours, sewing, dyeing and baking.

Action Pack: A magazine for kids who want to do stuff comes in an easy downloadable PDF format, with no advertising – 27 pages full of projects and recipes.

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 heap of projects around the theme ‘Tea & Sew’, with tasting, experimenting with flavours, sewing projects and more.

  • The instructions to sew a tea cup and jam tarts.
  • A recipe with variations to make your own tea flavoured cookies.
  • Make sun tea, herbal ice tea and spiced chai.
  • Instructions to tea dye fabric and make a personalised hand sewn tea cosy.
  • Lots of information and facts about tea traditions around the world.

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.

Hi! I appreciate all the work you do, I ordered all your issues so far and I’m pleased to say they totally met my expectations. I want to order this issue, too, but the discount code is not working :-) Can you help?

Discount Code didn’t seem to work for me on the shop page either. Never mind. Happy to pay $5. We loved the last one – looking forward to checking this one out!

In hindsight, I didn’t click ‘apply’ for the code (perhaps I shouldn’t still be on-line after midnight…..) otherwise it probably would have worked :)

My boys loved the first two issues. I couldn’t get the printer to get them out fast enough! I am thrilled to see issue 3 is out just in time – the cooler weather is setting in so lots of afternoon play inside for us now.
I am also putting up a review on our blog for you!

Tea – perfect theme for us in the UK. Bought this issue then just had to go back and buy the other two! My tea drinking g-niece will love the ideas here and I can print out and make an action pack for her birthday next week. Great ideas and recipes for me too! Look forward to the next issue.
