Action Pack is an online magazine and there's a new edition out today. It's full of amazing hands-on stuff for kids to do and make. And for bigger kids too for that matter. Also, you won't find any ads, just projects like making watercolour paints from the sea and fashioning a fleet of boats with cork sailors.
I contributed to this edition which is based around the theme of WATER. My project is making water crackers. These are very doable for kids and of course, everyone likes to eat them. Also they mean that you almost always have the ingredients to make something to eat: all you need is flour, oil and water. Handy.
Action Pack is put together by the ever-inspiring Kathreen Ricketson (of Whip Up fame) who homeschools her own kids and is currently on a year-long road trip adventure as part of that schooling. She has some free projects offered up here.
Kathreen has kindly offered two copies of Action Pack up for a giveaway, so if you'd like to be in to win, just leave a comment and I'll draw a winner in a couple of days.
