David and Sophie
Sibling Duo steals the show
David and Sophie (and their very supportive mum and grandma) joined us via the Rockingham/Peel Home School Group in 2017.
A fabulous duo “My Meeps” really understood the spirit of engaging with customers and telling a story through their products.
David offered hand-made pop out cards and Sophie created hair-clips from grandmas crocheted animals.
They could theme the cards and clips with each trend, season, or festivity. This meant David’s cards were perfect for Christmas and the hair-clips were great stocking fillers. Being able to change and update their offering regularly meant their product was very marketable and their customers could always expect something new at their stall.
They attended several markets (including a night market – big effort for little kiddies) and began a business Facebook page with the help of their mum and continue to take orders.
It was a delight to see David and Sophie working together, figuring out the correct change, and ensuring items were packaged nicely for customers. They took immense pride in their business and it was wonderful to see them grow and share the experience.
Love from our teachers
"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"
Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019
"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."

Parents of Kidpreneurs - Kat, mum of Ash
How do parents feel about their kids running businesses? We are deeply curious about this at Maker Kids, so we ask the parents we meet regularly. As many of you know, Ash of Beauty From Ash's Products is one of our most successful kidpreneurs. In this video, we asked her mum, the marvellous Ezer Eve, what it's like. Hope you enjoy it 🙂Posted by Maker Kids Club on Monday, June 26, 2017
