Make a wish for the world

The world is an amazing place, but there are also many challenges. One great way to kick off a new year is to think about positive changes that could make the world better. Have your child fill out our Wish for the World form and email it to us at hello@theweekjunior.com. It may appear in a future issue!


Make a car emergency kit

In case of accidents or bad weather that can leave cars stranded, it's important to have an emergency kit stored in the trunk. Here's a guide to preparing one.


Craft a washi tape city

Using cardstock and colorful tape, kids can recreate the skyline of their favorite city—or invent a new one of their own design!


Have fun crocheting

Crocheting is a craft that uses yarn and a hook to create stitches that form a piece of fabric. Here’s how to get started on this relaxing, creative activity


Blend up a coconut smoothie

With these frosty smoothies, it’s easy to be transported to a world of tropical flavors. An optional garnish of pineapple wedges and cherries adds a special touch.


All about what kids think

At The Week Junior, we know children have strong opinions and we want to know what they are. That’s why we worked with YouGov to conduct our second annual Junior Voices survey. Find out here what kids today care about most.



Fill out our grandparents form

We want to hear why grandparents are important to kids! They can write and draw their answers on this form and then an adult can email it to us at hello@theweekjunior.com. Some submissions will be printed in future issues of the magazine.


Search for geocaches

Geocaching is a fun outdoor hobby that can feel like a real treasure hunt. Here’s how to start searching for hidden caches.



Make veggie lasagna roll-ups

This rolled up take on a classic layered pasta dish is great with butternut squash and sage.



Eat more like a vegetarian

Whether for environmental, ethical, or health reasons, many people have started to eat less meat, poultry, and fish and instead fill their plates with plant-based foods. To give vegetarian dishes a try, here’s what to know.




Make animal figurines from pine cones

Got pine cones? It doesn’t take much to turn them into lions, dogs, birds, and bears (oh my!) using materials that may already be on hand.




Host a cooking competition

Inspired by TV cooking shows like Chopped and Top Chef, these at-home parties have become a popular alternative to activities like a game night or movie night. It’s easy and fun to host one, but it does take some advanced planning.
