Anorak Magazine Volume 54 / Imagination

Anorak is the Happy Mags for Kids. Aimed at children aged 6+, it contains beautifully illustrated stories, activities and themes, all designed to spark imagination and foster creativity. Anorak explores themes based on the National Curriculum such as Art, Our World, Under the Sea and Learning, or more philosophical themes such as Kindness or Friendships and fun themes such as Cakes! Unlike magazines of today, Anorak is not a throw away title. Just like much loved children’s magazines and annuals of the past it is designed to be collected, kept, handed down and revisited. “Anorak is what would happen if Monty Python, Ralph Steadman and René Magritte decided to make a magazine for children.It's anarchic, fun, laugh-out-loud strange and readable for kids of all ages.” —Huffington Post.

dear anorak friends,

Do you know what we did this summer? We swam in a lake of ice cream. It was a bit sticky, but oh so delicious. Don’t believe us? We did, we did! OK it was … in our heads. How did we do that? We used our IMAGINATION which is the most fun thing to do. (Apart from swimming in a lake of ice cream.) In this issue, we take you on a journey around the weird and wonderful worlds that live within us. We explore why imagination is so brilliant, what we can do with it and what an imagined future might look like. Ready to jump into some whacky adventures? Let’s go! ANORAK is made by the following imaginative creatures: Chief: Cathy Olmedillas Sub Queen: Mia Anderson Chief Designer & Illustrator: Ben Javens Cover Artist:…

nat like is fun

A strange thought came to our heads the other day, while watching a nature documentary about Antartica: is it the case that every creature under the sea has a brother or sister on land? We decided to investigate further and here’s what we found. They share a name, an imposing stature and a life best lived in the slow lane. What are they? Cows! Sea cows, otherwise known as manatees, are the sort of creatures we wish we could cuddle all day. Found in the warm shallow waters of the Carribean Sea or off the West African coasts, manatees prefer their own company, unlike their land counterparts who like to hang around in herds. One would never survive for more than 24 hours in water, while it is the other’s favourite habitat. What are…

collecting is fun!

WHAT DO YOU MEAN? ACTUAL STONES? Yes! Little rocks and stones that we can pick up on a beach or in the streets make excellent things to collect. They are available from all places around the world, which makes it easy to grow your collection at very little cost or effort. DO THEY NEED TO BE ANY PARTICULAR SHAPES OR SIZES? No, all stones are welcome in our Happy Collection! The round ones can be turned into fun heads by painting eyes and mouths onto them. The ones with jagged or rough edges can be used to make tiny imaginary planets. Give them fun names such Planet Planeto, Planet Planeta, or just Planet! WHY DO WE LOVE THEM? We love stones because they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours. Stones are mysterious.…
