Guaranteed: if a youngster's not chatting on their mobile, they're typing in the latest emoticons or sending an email. And if not that, they're probably watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch or devouring a Harry Potter novel. Aimed at 13-22 year-olds, [email protected] updates the traditional spell formulae with modern methods. Out go scripts, scrolls and exotic ingredients and in come everyday, easily available items and totally accessible methods - but still with a mystical approach. Even better, text messaging and email ensure that every spell or charm goes directly to the heart of the matter by instantly reaching its intended recipient. The basic tips and principles of good magic-making are explained and brief meanings of various colours, numbers and crystals are given. Then follows 50 spells and rituals, each of which relates to one of the gamut of teenage preoccupations - school, college, exams, love, friends and family - and none of which are offensive, frightening or dangerous. Each spell is clearly set out, with a list of ingredients and an easy-to-follow step-by-step process. In addition to modern technology, the spells make use of inexpensive and readily available props and accessories, such as candles, crystals, power bracelets, friendship bracelets, hair ornaments, nail polish, fast food and essential oils. Like no other spell book, [email protected] speaks the language of its intended audience and communicates with them in a way that is immediately understood. Essential reading for modern witches everywhere!
Homemade for Hamsters features 20 easy projects for creating toys and exercise equipment for a hamster (and guinea pigs, small rabbits, gerbils, and pet rats and mice, too). The projects use materials and tools commonly found around the home. Treats may also be used and the book includes a list of those that are safe and not safe for a hamster. The 20 projects are grouped according to the type of activities that hamsters enjoy and that enrich their life. Simple text explains how the projects meet these needs and how some just provide fun. The Nibble Necklace, for example, gives a hamster a chewing workout, and it is great for climbing and swinging, too. The Maze simulates a wild hamster's search for food. Making the projects and understanding their benefits will help a child to bond with their pet and commit to its care. The projects are: Running Projects - Wheel, Tunnels, Amazing Mazes, Obstacle Course; Climbing Projects - See Saw Tube, Climbing Wall with Ladder, Treehouse, Platform and Ramp, Swing, Bendy Bridge; Digging Projects - The Sand Bath, Miniature Landscape with Digging Pit, Digging Tower; Chewing Toys - Walnut Shell Toy, Treat Tubes, Treat Ball, Nibble Necklace; Resting Toys - Hideaway Caves, Hammie Hill Hideout, Castle, Round House.

The Joy Journal for Magical Everyday Play by Laura Brand showcases fifty engaging activities for creative, everyday playtime to encourage a connection to nature, sense of joy and bonding with your kids, while nurturing your own inner child too.
The activities are mindful, creative and, crucially, very easy things to make and do with children that you will enjoy as much as they will. From moon sand to flower soup and nature wands there are short, long, loud and quiet activities to take you from morning to evening – each with a focus on the risk factors: volume of effort vs child engagement and mess. Laura Brand has been testing these while writing and raising her two-under-two, and shares the happy accidents and road blocks she’s hit along the way in honest, open and often funny introductions to each of the exercises.
This beautiful handbook will help you to inject fun, mindfulness and craft into bath-times, rainy afternoons, long journeys and play dates and to resist (as much as possible!) the temptation to succumb to screen time. Chapters take you through the seasons, with indoor, outdoor and on-the-go activities that are easy and fun every day.
The Joy Journal will arm you with a variety of fun, focussed activities made with store cupboard and easily foraged supplies that you can turn to time and again. All activities are suitable for toddlers, pre-schoolers, grown-ups and everyone in between.
