Recommended: Sweet Paul + Action Pack

The number of online magazines seems to be exploding, and there are many wonderful ones out there, including Small Magazine, lmnop, Gifted, Lonny, Rue, Matchbook, Anthology and others. I especially look forward to issues of Sweet Paul, which is always packed to the gills with beautiful photography, fun ideas and terrific recipes.

The new Kids issue is out and it’s every bit as good as (or maybe better than!) Martha Stewart’s KIDS, if you ever subscribed to it (and obsessively hoard the old issues, like I do).

You can get the issue here. See also the Sweet Paul blog.

I also want to recommend Whip Up‘s mini-mag for kids ages 7 and older called Action Pack (download it for $5). It’s 20+ pages of craft projects, outdoor activities, cooking, drawing and more. Perfect for weekend projects.

I’m pretty sure Elena and Rosa would love both of these magazines.
So much to look at and do!

    Awesome …a magazine for kids who want to do stuff….who wouldn’t want to give that to their kids?! And for a few dollars, to get them busy and productive…that’s priceless, really. Not that there’s anything wrong with laying around and playing video games (yuck)

    7yr old Luca actually said to me yesterday that he couldn’t “think of anything to do that isn’t a video game.” That’s just sad. We’re going to have to download these mags and get these lay-abouts busy!

    It’s a beautiful read and I loved that fact that there were not too many ads. It’s very content-rich don’t you think? Absolutely gorgeous.

    I too hoard Martha Stewart Kids. I have two Baby ones from ten years ago …

    Action pack – wow, that’s new to me!! thanks!!
