This little one cut ‘Mihi/Pepeha’ booklet and matching colouring sheet is a great scaffold to support your students with learning their mihi!
The small size is perfect for holding discretely in your palm for quick reference during assembly or in class, and the pictures provide extra guidance for your little ones. Simply print, fill in and colour, then follow the picture instructions to cut, fold and assemble your little booklet. If you’d like more room for your students to explore their whakapapa, I suggest enlarging and printing your sheet on to A3 paper – this will provide more room for your children to add notes and extra illustrations as applicable.
Also included is a themed colouring page to support your discussions about some of the items mentioned in the booklet.
*Please note – there a variety of different mihi formats included, so make sure you print the one that’s most suitable to your region.
** Does your school use a different order or format? Leave me a comment and I’ll try to include it in the download 🙂
Hi these are amazing. Would it be ok if I use the colouring page in the colour version as the basis for an embroidery sampler? I would only be making one sampler, for myself. Thanks 🙂
Goodness sounds amazing! Go right ahead – I’d love to see a photo of the finished piece when it’s complete 🙂
Just wanted to make contact as I am coming to teach in NZ in April from SA

Kia Ora, 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing and allowing us to use your resources. For us non Maori teachers it is great help to find this. I really acknowledge your hard work and kind heart. We are trying to strengthen the use of Te Reo in our centre and introducing pepeha to our tamariki. there are many ways out there to use but I found this is really neat with pictures, and make it easy for the children to understand what they are learning, as we know that some children are visual learners, specially our young tamariki.
Thank you kindly for your work.

You are so welcome! I’m also a non-Māori teacher and it’s nice to know there are so many of us walking the ‘strengthening’ journey together! Enjoy 🙂
Absolutely – go for it!
