Issue 5 of Action Pack: A magazine for kids – {chalk & cheese} is out. So excited about this issue – it’s all about chalk & cheese – those two very different materials that might look similar but are really not similar at all. In this pack you will find projects to keep you busy no matter what the season. From kitchen science experiments to outdoor art and craft projects.

This is a printable downloadable emagazine – with no advertising.

40 pages of projects and recipes

Available now

40 pages of crafts, science, cooking and games exploring the theme of Chalk + Cheese.

  • Make chalk + cheese
  • Kitchen science
  • Chalk boards & chalk bags
  • Sidewalk games
  • Plaster crafts
  • Cornflour experiments
  • Plus More games, crafts, science & cooking.

Contributors: I am also really excited this issue to introduce three new contributors:

  • Lisa Tilsa from Sydney, Australia shows us how to make your own chalk board paint and some creative chalk boards.
  • Anne Weil from Boulder, USA shows us how to mix chalk and sand together to make some textured art.
  • Pascale Mestdagh from Paris, France shows us how to make a simple drawstring bag to carry your chalk and sidewalk games kit around with you.

When my daughter was little, we made cornflour slime. We loved how it’s both a liquid and a solid, which reminds me… don’t dispose of it down your drains! At least that’s what we were warned. :)
