Into Action

This is a back issue of A.P., but just in time for the coming holiday.

Two more days to go til the kids' spring holidays from school starts. In spite of my best intentions, I never did get it together to plan a family trip somewhere, even though we're all getting pretty desperate to see the sun. So, mommy camp it is.

Fortunately for me, and you too if you're like me and need some help planning your April holiday, there is Action Pack Magazine. If you don't know about super cool Aussie mom and blogger Kathreen Ricketson and her equally awesome e-zine, you're in for a treat. Filled with very cool, theme based projects for kids and their grownups (with ideas and even entire issues spanning a range of ages, like the special pre-school edition, see photo below), these downloadable PDF magazines are affordable, free of advertising and support the belief that kids are fundamentally self-directed, innovative problems solvers, and should be given opportunities to explore and demonstrate those traits in fun and creative ways. Read the Action Pack philosophy here

Can't wait to try out some of the pre-school projects with my two younger boys.

This is the most recent issue of A.P., which is water themed.

Michael is a little obsessed with my lip balm, so we're definitely going to be making some of those.
There are many other issues available too, so be sure to check them all out.

For the record, C.A.B.L. remains ad-free, and my endorsement of Action Pack is unsolicited and unpaid for by anyone. All photos used by permission of Kathreen Ricketson.

Happy making, and happy spring!
