Expect this question a lot if you follow today's suggestion.
At least one of my kids will ask daily.
We have purchased magazine subscriptions for each of our kids.
They love it.
For one, it is a reason to get mail. Who doesn't like getting mail (that isn't a bill)?
And secondly, it's something fun to read and look at. Magazines always have great photos to go with their information.
If a subscription isn't in the budget, it is a great gift to suggest when a grandparent or other relative asks you what to buy your sweet darlings for Christmas or a birthday.
We've gotten many different ones over the years, but the favorites have been:
Sports Illustrated Kids
National Geographic Kids
chickeaDEE (Printed by the same publisher of Owl and Chirp, two other favorite magazines.)
And of course, Highlights (or the version for younger kids, High Fives).
Have your children ever gotten magazine subscriptions? What was their favorites?
Have a lovely day!
