Stamp Active children activities at Autumn Stampex International 2018
Stamp collecting is probably one of the greatest hobbies children can take up. There is a wealth of reasons why young people benefit from taking an interest in collecting stamps. It is an easy and enjoyable way to pass time but in the process of doing so, they allow themselves to be immersed in the wonderful topics of history, geography, sports, animal and plants, space exploration and so many more. They can become engrossed in snippets of knowledge that each stamp carries and develop a hobby that lasts a lifetime.
At Autumn Stampex International 2018, charity Stamp Active will offer a variety of activities for children throughout the week, to help them understand more about stamps and incite their interest in the hobby of stamp collecting. The team will set up a free area and host a live auction for kids on Saturday 15th September. This season, the theme is Britain at War. Past themed activities and displays by Stamp Active at Stampex International Kids Corner have included Mr Men and Little Miss and Children’s Literature.
Stamp Active is a voluntary organisation that promotes stamp collecting for young people in the UK. New members receive a starter kit and are given the opportunity to participate in games, competitions and clubs with people who share their passion for stamps. www.stampactive.co.uk
