Give the Gift of Reading

It is that time of year again.  Time to renew my boys’ magazine subscriptions.  If you are looking for a gift that checks lots of boxes…think magazines.  I know it is kind of old school, but I love it.

What first began as an attempt to boost my children’s desire to work on their reading at home, soon turned into a way for them to learn about some of the things that they had developed an affinity for….  Boats, Cars, the Outdoors.

Each Christmas I renew their subscriptions and they look forward to receiving their new magazines in the mail.  It has been a great way for them to practice reading, spend time together, get off of their electronics, and learn more.   They have also cut up their magazines for school projects and to hang their favorite pictures on their wall.  The jagged and ripped photos taped precariously throughout their bedroom secretly makes me cringe a little bit, but they seem to enjoy it.

While they’ve had magazines like National Geographic Kids, Ranger Rick, and Boys’ Life in the past, right now they receive Automobile and Power and Motor YachtThis year I’m also adding Sports Illustrated Kids to the mix.
