A can-do magazine for girls who wanna run the world, featuring some impressive women who already do.

My five brilliant nieces are marching their way toward adolescence (well, one of them is technically crawling her way there at this time), and while I do my best to introduce them to the joys of science, Star Wars, sports, and all the possibilities for women in general, I recognize there are still a lot of forces working against them in those arenas. So I was thrilled when I learned about Erin Bried’s new Kickstarter project for KAZOO magazine, a publication for girls ages 5–10 that is designed, with the help of some very impressive names, to promote creativity, curiosity, exploration, and fun, across topics like science, technology, art, sports,...

Gift a year of creativity with Curious Jane Magazine

If you have a curious, crafty, smart, and creative tween, we have a cool new gift idea that isn’t a craft kit or art supplies, but a brand new magazine that will fill her head with things to make, projects to do, and fun ways to spend her time in the upcoming year. Curious Jane Magazine is the newly-launched magazine from the creators of the Curious Jane summer camps and after-school programs for girls 6-11. Like the camps, which our editor Liz’s daughter has attended and loved, the magazine is designed to give young girls their own space to create, think, and imagine. We’ve...

A simple Mother’s Day brunch idea. (Would Martha Stewart steer us wrong?)

Ironically, even though I’m the one who’s supposed to being “honored” for Mother’s Day I end up being the one working my butt off putting together a brunch for everyone else. But, before I hang streamers for my pity party I must say that I am actually looking forward to it this year, thanks to a bunch of simple recipes I picked up in this month’s issue of Everyday Food. I got to visit one of Martha’s actual test kitchens this week (and have bruises from pinching myself) while a team of remarkably talented food editors served up some...
