About You Book Creativity Kit


Are you looking for a fun, creative, skills building activity to share with your child? One that engages his or her playful side, while also providing exposure to worldly topics? If you answered, yes, then the Our Friends Afar Creativity Kits are made just for you.

In this kit, our main characters, siblings, Sunshine and Boomer, share with you child their love of learning about others. They explain that learning about others connects us all because after we learn, we are no longer strangers. In this kit, your little one is given an About Me book to fill out and decorate. In addition to the typical “tell me about yourself and your parents,” prompts, this book goes a step further, seeing what diversity, safety, and happiness means to your child. This kit will provide your family with a perfect keepsake.

This kit includes: an about you book with a note from Sunshine and Boomer, one multi-color crayon pen, and stickers.



This kit is intended for one child only. All sales are final. The recommended age range is four to eight. Parental guidance is recommended, especially with reading and writing. Please note that if you subscribe to our Creativity Kit subscription service, you save $12 with the three month subscription, $36 with the six month subscription, and $96 with the twelve month subscription.

Note: All of our products subtly generate talking points for you to discuss with your little one. Some of these points include: culture, race, diversity, language, geography, food, poverty, and kindness. The aim of Our Friends Afar is to teach children that although we are all different and unique, we are all the same. It’s our belief that open-minded and empathetic children lead to a more peaceful, loving, and connected future. THIS is our goal! Our Creativity Kits are designed to expose your child to various topics while inspiring curiosity about others – be it their life circumstances, where they live, and more.

Feel good about your purchase. Ten percent of profits from all Our Friends Afar sales will be donated to RAICES, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. Did you know that immigrants facing deportation in immigration court do not have the right to a lawyer if they cannot afford one. No matter what your political views are, I am sure you feel the same: that is not okay; that is not America. I imagine you too are heartbroken for these separated families and children in detention centers. Hopefully our donations can play a role in helping these families and individuals.
