Indianapolis (February 25, 2013) – The March/April issues of award-winning magazines Jack and Jill (ages 7-12), Humpty Dumpty (ages 5-7), and Turtle (ages 3-5) feature great do-it-yourself cooking and crafting projects for kids of all ages.
Jack and Jill (ages 7-12): Kids can get busy in the kitchen with Jack and Jill’s recipe for Granny Adair’s Pistachio Cookies (p.13), which are easy to make and incorporate lots of great nutrients with ingredients including avocado and pistachios. For the more craft-inclined, Jack and Jill has all the info kids need to make their very own Hand-Painted Silk Scarf (p.26) that they can wear all spring long.
Humpty Dumpty (ages 5-7): Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th, Humpty Dumpty shares a kid-friendly recipe for Shamrock Shakes (p.16), bright green shakes made with lime sherbet, milk, and bananas. Then to help kids watch March come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, Humpty Dumpty features a Weather Chart (p.30) craft project that allows kids to keep track of the weather every day of the week.
Turtle (ages 3-5): Even the little ones can make their own snacks with Turtle’s Bananaflies (p.20) – easy snacks that look like butterflies made out of bananas, chocolate chips, and pretzels. For the artistic ones, Turtle teaches kids how to make Lilac Prints (p.30) using lilacs, paint, and paper plates.
