Issue 7 of Action Pack, is one that is close to my heart – it’s all about the freedom of childhood – sticks and stones are simple ancient tools that can be made into all sorts of things for games and adventures.

This is a printable downloadable e-magazine – with no advertising.

30 pages of making, baking and adventures

Available now

Kids – go wild, experiment, play, cook, taste, imagine, get outside and create cool things with the projects in this book.

We had so much fun making these projects – our slingshot is based on a traditional Navaho design – easy to get started but takes care and practice to become a good shot! We also loved making our ephemeral art pieces and practicing our whittling skills on our recent camping trip.

Contributors:

  • Lisa Tilse (Australia) and her daughter show us how to make message stones.
  • Anne Weil (USA) and her three kiddos make a pretzel log cabin and some delicious cinnamon sticks.
  • Margie Oomen (Canada) paints stone eggs and creates an inuksuk snow globe.
  • Susan Phillips (USA) and her kids make a nature version of the classic game tic-tac-toe.
  • Katie Startzman (USA) and her boys whittle a fork.
  • Joan Gorman (England) and her daughter Grace make wooden jewellery.

The Action Pack Magazines are aimed at the 7-12 age group – however there are projects suitable for older and younger kids too – Painted rocks and the pretzel cabin would be perfect for little ones, and Wooden jewellery and the Braided Sling are perfect for teens and adults too.

This Issue of the Action Pack comes with a safety warning – some projects require the use of fire and sharp knives – some adult supervision may be required.

Our philosophy:

– 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.
