Katherine wrote in to let me know how much they love the Action Packs:
I have very much enjoyed your action packs. I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old and a 10 month old, and we have all got something out of the Action Pack. Thanks for your energy and enthusiasm - we are big fans. Katherine (Australia)
Action pack issue 5 'Chalk & Cheese' will be coming out next week. In this Action Pack we introduce three new contributors, Lisa Tilsa from Sydney, Australia who will show us how to make your own chalk board paint and some creative chalk boards; Anne Weil from Boulder, USA who is showing us how to mix chalk and sand together to make some textured art, Pascale Mestagh from Paris, France who shows us how to make a simple and colourful bag to carry your chalk and sidewalk games kit around with you. As well as these craft and art activities you will also find some fun science and cooking activities involving chalk + cheese!
In each newsletter you will find some reader stories, interesting crafty links and resources, easy recipes to make with and for the kids and some healthy and easy recipes for weekday dinners. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to see in this newsletter - email kathreen[at]whipup.net
