Plans for the summer
View in browser


Hi %recipient.firstname%,


June 21st is not only the start of summer. It is also Make Music Day. A perfect opportunity to make a super simple musical instrument.

You can make these castanets with just recycled materials. Collect beer bottle caps and with a bit of cardboard you have what you need to make these castanets!



The school year that comes to an end was a particularly busy one for Animaplates. We moved more that once before settling in our final destination. My workshop is now organized, but we need to make some changes on the website.

During the summer, you will receive newsletters a bit less often, i.e. not every week. But don't worrry, we'll have new projects regularly and we'll continue to add 10 new printable each week. When it's time to go back to school, we'll resume our weekly newsletter cadence.


You can also continue to follow us on social media. We just added Instagram, where you will see a project that is just right for the season (almost) every day.



Because you are a Pro

This week, there are three new printables with musical instruments: a colouring page with a recorder, a sudoku 6x6 with various instruments, and a zentangle colouring page with a violin.
