AVOID THE SUMMER TIME BLUES
& IGNITE YOUR CHILD'S CREATIVITY
AVOID THE SUMMER TIME BLUES & IGNITE YOUR CHILD'S CREATIVITY
Less Stuff. More Imagination. 
The Summer of Creativity is the simple solution to ignite your child's creative genius and support your local school so you can feel like a PARENT ROCKSTAR.
A note from the world's okay-est mom:
Like you, I want to be a good parent. A great one, even. I want to give my kids enriching experiences. I want to support their schools. I want to feel like I'm doing something that's going to matter in the long run.

But I used to feel defeated anytime another time-sucking fundraiser was announced or the chaos of summer break got the best of me.

Thankfully, there's a better way.
INTRODUCING
The Summer Of Creativity
This 6-week online summer program gets elementary-aged kids thinking, learning, and creating while giving parents a super flexible format that works with any summer schedule.
Avoid Summer
Learning Loss
Studies show that kids lose up to 2 1/2 months of reading and math skills each summer. Our program keeps kids learning and using those essential skills in a fun format that doesn't feel like schoolwork.
Easily Modified To Fit Your Life
Summer can be unpredictable, but our online format gives you the freedom to work with your schedule. If time is tight, you can pick and choose the activities that get you and your child excited.
Watch Your Child's Confidence Soar
With prizes to win and a weekly "High Five" video that features student projects, your child will feel part of something BIG. Each project puts children in the driver's seat as they get to explore their interests.
PLUS, 50% of each enrollment goes right back to your school!
No pledges to collect. No bugging family & friends to buy overpriced products. We give your school the lion's share of the profits while providing your child with an amazing educational experience that will make summer break a breeze.
"I was in search of an engaging, flexible, fun way to keep my daughter's mind active this summer while allowing her space for regulation, and Munga Punga is the answer to my prayers!"
- Jeni D.
HOW IT WORKS
Discover The Theme.
Each week your child will be introduced to a new theme and given three short, fun video tutorials that feature a simple project for them to do. Rather than rote memorization, lame worksheets, or copy-cat crafts, our goal is to get your child thinking, creating, and making connections in the world.   
 
Create.
Projects encourage independent thought. With a few basic art supplies and a lot of imagination, your child will create stories, solutions, and ideas worth sharing. Projects also encourage essential skills like math & reading through an integrated approach that mimics real life.
Get Featured, Earn Prizes. 
Students can share their completed projects for a chance to win prizes and get featured in our weekly "High Five" community building video. Our supportive environment helps kids cheer each other on and get honored for their work.
Keep At It.
Since you get access to all videos and resources for a full year, you can revisit the training as much as you like. We send weekly emails to help you modify projects based on the time you have. If you have a vacation or summer camps planned, you can adapt the schedule to work for you.

FAQs
What makes Munga Punga so special?

Your child. Our projects are merely vehicles for igniting your child's innate creativity. Unlike so many other online programs or workbooks, our program helps kids explore their individuality, learn how to problem-solve, and use their reading, writing, and math skills in organic ways that speak to their passions. 

And then there's the community. As students share their projects, get featured for their ideas, and join the group as we celebrate diversity — your child will feel like they're part of something bigger. 
How old do participants need to be?

The program is designed for elementary-aged children (K-6). Project modifications are offered so kids can participate at whatever level they are at to keep them engaged and motivated.

We've had several people ask if their four-year-olds can participate. As long as parents are willing to help and modify as needed, we've had many pre-k kids participate who have loved the experience. 
Tell me more about the prizes. How will those work?

While the main focus of the program is to celebrate the children and their creations, we know some kids get motivated when there are prizes to be won. 

All children who complete the week's assignment can enter the weekly drawing. At least three winners will be selected each week randomly. Winners get to choose between a variety of prize options. 

In addition to the weekly winners, we'll feature a dozen or more of our favorite projects each week in our "High Five" community building video.
 
What if we're going to be gone for part of the program?

Summer schedules can be tricky. We get it. We specifically designed this 6-week challenge to be as flexible as you need. Each project has a lot of fluidity to cater to the schedules of those involved. Should you need to skip a week or two, no biggie! Prizes are given out on a project by project basis. If you'll be gone during any of the weeks, simply skip the material and join us when you get back.

Remember, you have access to the materials for a full year. You can always go back and work through any projects you missed, or repeat them on a rainy day.
Do you offer any scholarships?

We've worked hard to make this program as affordable as possible, but we also understand that financial situations can be tricky. We do offer scholarships based on financial need. We want ALL children to have an opportunity to participate. If you'd like more information on our scholarship process, please email us at support@mungapunga.com. 
What supplies do I need?

Because we know everyone has different schedules, budgets, and resources, we want to make this event as inclusive and flexible as possible. No need for fancy supplies, as we encourage kids to work with what they've got. 

With that said, things like access to paper, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, tape/glue, or other basic art supplies will help kids get their creative juices flowing. We also recommend creating a "junk" box with things that could be used for projects. Things like boxes, pieces of fabric, and empty containers are great to have around when creativity sparks.
How much time do the projects take to complete?

We designed our projects to be flexible because we know how summer schedules are. One week you're dying to fill up those hours. Other weeks you're stuffed to the max with things to do. Since this summer program is project-based, you can be as minimalistic or elaborate as you like. Also, our handy parent's guide will give you tips and ways to expand or "cut to the chase" with each activity. 

On average, we imagine the weekly projects will take between 1 - 3 hours to complete throughout the week. Ultimately, it depends on the child and how long they want to spend on each project. We break things up into bite-sized chunks because we know attention spans aren't long for many kids, and because we want to keep them learning in a "little but often" way. 
What is the difference between the family pass and a single child registration?

The family pass is designed for families with two or more children living in the same house who want to participate in the program. 

We know that having more kids can be a strain on the budget, so instead of charging for each child, we have developed the family pass to make it more accessible. The price difference between a single pass and the family pass allows us to curate and review additional projects and ensure all K-6 children in your household are eligible for prizes.

We ask that any friends, neighbors, or extended family enroll separately. All materials are subject to copyright and should not be shared with anyone who hasn't registered.
How does the school earn money?

When you enroll, you'll be asked to provide your school's name and city. Schools (usually via their parent organization) must be enrolled as a school partner to earn commissions. However, even if your school hasn't already signed up, we'll reach out to let them know we have money for them. All they have to do is register to receive their earnings. The process takes less than 5 minutes, with absolutely no contracts or fees involved.

For more information, visit our school partner page.
What does "Munga Punga" mean?

Robin's daughter, Cami, is a creative soul who has always loved art, projects, and ideas. One day, when she was four years old, she walked into the living room and handed Mom, Dad, and brother Dax a set of cool, funky hats she had made. 

"Munga Punga," she said. 

At the time, the family thought she created the word and loved it. Later, they realized there might be some Maori roots as she was attending kindergarten in New Zealand at the time. Either way, Cami continued to use it as an ongoing label for all her creations.

Since then, Munga Punga has been an ongoing celebration of creativity and childhood. We're so excited to share the spirit of it with you.
