Paint a hat box

The Team from Resene ColorShop Basin Reserve

Turn a cardboard lidded hat box into a stylish piece of home décor using Resene testpots, with a tribal twist.

When painting with a tribal theme, throw perfection out the window and embrace crooked lines, texture, and less than perfect paint techniques to get a more organic result.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene. Find out how to create your own

Kids' Lit at Marsden

Inge Doig from Samuel Marsden Collegiate School

Kids' Lit woohoo! Marsden hosted the KidsLit Quiz last week welcoming a total of 44 teams from schools around Wellington. What a proud moment when one of our two teams was announced as 2nd place winners, one point behind Wellesley! Huge congratulations to Olive, Holly, Gloria and reserve Valerie (filling in for Bay). Our second team of Isabella, Tiantian, Abigail and Manon (Year 6) did a great job too, finishing in the middle of the pack. Thanks to Head of Libraries and Information Centre, Karen Richards for masterminding the logistics. Quiz master Wayne Mills pictured with our Kids' Lit teams.
