Sports Illustrated for Kids

"For the Sports Fanatic"

As my now 6 year old son has gotten older I have already lost the battle on the sports fanatic on him. He is right there next to his Daddy cheering on the favored football team or if the Blackhawks are playing I am a non-existent. I find it adorable though, that he loves sports so much. It is ingrained in him. He knows scores and players that I have never even heard of before!

One of my most favorite gifts to give him again this year is a year subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids. Now that he is an avid reader he can't get enough of sports info. He is constantly bombarding me with random information about the Chicago Blackhawks, so I know getting this magazine again each month will bring him tons of joy. Every issue comes with a pull-out poster, sports cards, and games, puzzles, and sports trivia.
You still have time to get your little sports fanatic a year subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids for only $19.95. And to sweeten the deal, you can get a second subscription for only $5! Upon subscribing you also have the option for a printable gift card to announce your gift. I know I will personally be placing that in my little guy's stocking for Christmas.

I was provided with one complimentary year subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids
and a promotional item in exchange for sharing this info with you.

“I participated in a Blog Blast program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle.TV. I received a promotional item and a free trial as a thank you for participating.”

I am always excited to check out new platforms for my kids to enjoy some of their favorite TV shows, especially if it means they are safer than browsing through youtube. My kids have loved trying out Kidoodle.TV this week. My 6 year old son created his own profile, "yay-ing" and "nay-ing" the shows he likes and dislikes. That way he can personalize what shows he can watch. I went over it with him at first to approve his selections, but ever since he has been on his own. This will be great for these cold winter months when we are getting stir-crazy. Check out Kidoodle.TV for your own kiddos, I bet they'll love it too.


Try Kidoodle.TV for FREE and enter by December 31, 2013 to win 1 of 10 tablets or 1 of 10 Kidoodle.TV year-long subscriptions!

"For the Grandparents"

I am the only one who has the toughest time shopping for my kids grandparents? It's like they have EVERYTHING already! Lucky enough I have some ridiculously cute kids so giving the Grandparents a custom made Mosaic photo book with pics of the kids is always a winner. 

Now available in Android, along with iPhone you can easily and quickly create a cute photo book with pics straight from your phone in less than 5-10 minutes. You can arrange the photos in the order you prefer and for the cover it automatically pops your projects photos into the variety of slots available. I'll be honest, I had to refresh it numerous times to get the photos to line up, but once they did it looked perfect.

To ensure Christmas Delivery, make sure you create and submit your order by 12/19 by 6:30pm EST. It even comes all packed up in a pretty box all ready to be wrapped and given away (or treat yourself and keep it!)

And if you'd like to gift the gift of a Mosaic photo book to a loved one, gift cards (only supported on iOS at this time) are available as well.

Visit the app store on iOS or google play on Android. The app is free and photo books only cost $20 plus shipping ($5 to most places). 

Visit Mosaic on the web and facebook for more information.

full disclosure: I was compensated a complimentary photo book in exchange for 
sharing this info with  my readers. All words and thoughts are my very own.
