Spoonful is a new Aussie zine from Anthea Krook – she says of Spoonful: … is a short and inspiring little publication which, in light of our insanely busy lives is short enough to complete by the end of a bus-ride and will genuinely make you smile. It’s all about finding ways to reflect and become happier people in our everyday lives, all wrapped up in beautifully gentle and creative design. + it is printed on 100% recycled Australian Paper.

downloadable pdf is 2 zines in one: [all the info here]

These printable mini books are perfect for little hands – the ideas are all aimed at pre-school age kids – but what I really love about this series and about kids craft weekly always is how unpretentious they are – the projects are all really achievable for this age group – with the photos showing finished products made by kids.
