Sticks and Stones

in Action Pack Extras

Sticks and Stones is the theme for this month’s Kids magazine. Action Pack is an e-magazine aimed at children around the 7-12 age group and is full of projects for them to make (mostly) on their own. The instructions are clear and are accompanied by lots of photos and there are no ads to distract from the business of creativity.

This issue of Action Pack has three main sections: PLAY Games, activities & sports :: COOK Recipes, treats & party snacks :: CREATE  Art, craft & experiments. Each section contains several projects with step-by-step instructions, as well as some fun creative ideas meant as a jumping off point and a way to get thinking about materials and creativity in new ways.

This month’s theme “Sticks and Stones” is a fun theme aimed at getting kids to use natural materials that they can easily find where ever they are. Grab your copy over here.

I have also loved working with the contributors Lisa TilseAnne Weil Margie OomenSusan PhillipsKatie Startzman and Joan Gorman who bring a whole range of experiences to the magazine.
