Our Story


"Creativity doesn't wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones."

- Bruce Garrabrandt


Hi, we’re Nic and Tim and these are our little Mini Makers!

Our story starts in the pandemic when we were trying to keep our toddler entertained alongside our newborn baby (high five if that sounds familiar).

We didn’t want to start lots of screen time, yet we didn’t have time to plan fun activities (...we were also a bit scared of the mess!)


Nic, Tim Alex and Iona my Mini Maker

Enter Justyna, the ideas queen—she has worked with young children for over 20 years, helping them to develop and learn through play.

Welcome to the world, My Mini Maker.

Every month we team together to design, make, pack and send activities straight to your door with everything you need in the box. We make sure you don’t have to think or plan anything.

Our community is important to us. If you have any suggestions for an activity or theme, drop us an email at hello@myminimaker.com or DM us on Instagram—we love hearing from our customers! And don’t forget to tag us on social media #MyMiniMaker—it makes us so happy to see your creations (follow the hashtag to check out other people’s too!).

Have fun,

Nic, Tim and Justyna
