IN THIS ISSUE
It's our biggest and most colourful edition yet full of lots of new features as well as our regular content. We hope you enjoy our colour focus and that it brings a new hue to your day.
The Psychology of Colour.
Colour psychology is the study of the effect that colours have on human behaviour - particularly the natural instinctive feelings that each colour evokes. Colours can have both positive and negative effects on our moods and feelings. Colour Psychology is a relatively old area of scientific research. Ancient civilizations believed in the influence of colour on humans. The ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Indians believed in Chromotherapy or healing with colours.

Eat with your eyes.
Our FOOD section is crammed with information on the nutritional value of eating the rainbow. You can find out the health benefits of Red, Yellow/Orange, Green, Purple/Blue and White/Brown food groups and get some fantastic recipes for healthy eating.
NEW "In Your Corner".
We're delighted to welcome Irene Olson as a regular contributor. You might remember her from the recent Book Sampler of Requiem for the Status Quo, and for several other articles over the last couple of editions. You can read her first column HERE.
And the winner is...
Our competition winner, Melanie, sent in this very cute photo of her daughter with her Sew Cute prize. Bet she can't wait for Mummy to sew her Snippett's Snoozefest and read the story. And we have another opportunity to win more Sew Cute prizes. See our COMPETITION panel to the right for details.
Things to do!
We've gathered more hot ideas for entertaining the grandkids. Visit the Indoor Fun and Craft Corner pages for some easy, cheap and fun-filled options. There's instruction on how to make tassle flowers, ideas for empty shoeboxes, how to make hobby horses from pool noodles and some great games.
Put something on our Fridge Door.
We'll have a new feature in our next edition. It's called "The Fridge Door". It's a place where readers can post images of grandkid's drawings, inspiring quotes, their own musings, new arrivals, brag books, photos, achievements... in fact anything you'd like to share with the Grandparents Day Magazine community. Email your contributions to:
email@example.com and we'll do the rest.
Sew Cute have just released two new toy pattern kits... a frisky horse and a zany zebra. You can find out more in Products You'll Love. To celebrate, they're giving you the opportunity to win one of each. Just tell us which one you'd like to win and then give it a name. The best names will win.
