the monthly book club – that inspires your creativity!
Every month we’ll post you a carefully curated book to read, along with a specially designed activity card of creative and imaginative ideas of things for you to write, do, draw, make, or cook – all inspired by the book.
Sometimes we’ll also include a little extra gift too – from fold your own origami, to delicious tea – look out for an added treat!
The creative prompts are activities you can do again and again – you don’t need special equipment, just things you have at home. They are designed to get your own creativity flowing in response to the book, rather than simply sending you instructions to follow!
We work with small independent publishers so that you’re unlikely to already have the books – perfect for bookworms young and old(er!)
Every parcel is beautifully gift wrapped, as everyone deserves a bookish treat!
Plus, 10% of your subscription goes towards our work with disadvantaged children, as being creative supports learning across the curriculum.
We believe everyone is creative, sometimes you just need a little inspiration!
How it works
Bumblebee subscriptions are available for children and grownups!
Choose either a monthly rolling subscription, or a gift subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months.
Wait for the
post to arrive!
Each month you’ll receive a beautiful and unusual book – we work with small independent publishers to make sure that you’re unlikely to already have the book on your shelves.
Using the activity card that accompanies your book as inspiration, get writing, making, creating or baking! You don't have to be an expert - be inspired and have a go.
By subscribing you help us to run free, fun creative writing and creative thinking sessions for children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are struggling with literacy. You can find out more about this here.
