Hello friends! Hello 2022! We're almost through January! Let's keep going!
Tinker time: We're inspired by Girls Garage founder Emily Pilloton-Lam, who says she teaches girls to build by filling their toolboxes with drills and saws and ferocity and joy. For Kazoo's tinkering projects, we limit our materials to what we think people already have around the house, so readers can do any of our projects without taking a special trip to the hardware or craft store. We end up using a ton of cardboard and glue, but we hope our tinkering projects help prepare our younger readers for more advanced woodworking when they get a little older, too. Plus, we have so much fun making stuff with our kids.
Arthurian Legend come to life. So, maybe when our girls get a little older they'll be prepared to pull a bronze ax out of the ground, like this 13-year-old girl, who went out with a metal detector and found a hoard of items from more than 3,000 years ago. “We were just laughing our heads off,” she said. Thrilling.
Kazoo is an award-winning, ad-free, indie magazine for girls, 5 to 12, that celebrates them for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves. It's published quarterly in Brooklyn, New York and is sold all around the world.
