Its always been important to me for radical and anarchist events to be all ages. I think multi-generational is key, and kids need to get to be included, and also their caretakers need to be available too!
Kids and their caretakers have a lot to contribute. But everyone else needs to do b our best to be welcoming.
Far too often radical and anarchist events are inaccessible in a multitude of ways. Often this includes being anti-kid. This will be deliberate sometimes, through rude comments, etc.
Other times the anti-kid attitude is subconscious or just from ignorance- meetings late, nothing for kids to do, etc.
Tied up in the anti-kid stuff is a multitude of oppressive intersectional stuff too.

Anyways, in an effort to up my contribution to kid friendly radical spaces, I want to put togethet Wingnut Kid Kits to distribute to all kinds of groups so they can give them out to kids when they show up to events.

If anyone has ideas for more stuff to be included please let me know. I’d also be interested in any donations of materials for the kits.

Stuff I need so far:
Manila envelopes that will fit 8.5 by 11 paper
Stickers
Crayons
Coloring book pages or activity pages

Generally speaking I would prefer content of semi-radical character, or at least that doesn’t perpetuate colonialist, gender binary, classist, racist, sexist, heterosexist bullhockey. Would prefer content featuring a variety of types of people and radical themes.
If you have zines or drawings I could include please be in touch!

Ideas for more potential content appreciated. I’m thinking just stuff that isn’t too messy or bulky.
I also will include a letter to the caretaker. So if you have a zine or essay that might be something interesting or useful for caretakers who bring kids to radical events please let me know!
