Badges of Fun: Learn Something New & A GIVEAWAY!

The girls earned their third badge in Disney Family Fun's Badges of Fun challenge!  The theme for the third badge was Learn Something New.  To earn their badge, the girls started a scavenger hunt.  I created exploration guides for them to fill out to earn their badge. 

On each page of the guide, I read them a riddle and they (Jaden) had to try and guess the correct answer.  After that, they had to draw a picture of that object and then find it. 

Once we found it, I took their picture to put in their guide!

This has been a fun, ongoing project for both girls and myself!  We aren't completely finished with our guides yet, but I feel that they have completed enough to earn a badge :o)


Great job girls!

For the next badge, we all get to participate in some Family Night Fun!  To earn the badges, the girls must complete an activity in one of the following categories:
  1. Play Table Sports
  2. Make Some Custom Crafts
  3. Hone Your Skills
As always, I like to choose an activity that is fit for the girls' age level (4 and 2) and the second category has the perfect activity for us!  As you can see, we love to display photos and artwork on our refrigerator. 

I think the girls would really enjoy making frames to hold their own coloring pictures and the photos of our friends!  I have two creative kiddos so I'm sure the frames will be awesome!  Like always, we'll put our own creative twist on our project.

I can not say enough good things about Disney Family Fun magazine!  We all love it at our house!  Jaden loves to grab the magazine when it comes in the mail and look through it to find her favorite characters.  You can only imagine her surprise when she came across these cuties on page 11:

She couldn't believe she was in the same magazine as Tinkerbell and Duck Tales! 


I want to thank Faye and everyone else at the magazine for featuring my girls and their hard work!  Disney has agreed to give one of my readers a ONE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION to Disney Family Fun!  How awesome is that?!  If you already have a subscription, they will extend your current subscription for one year at no cost to you!

I want the Disney Family Fun magazine because I love to read about the creative family fun activities to do with my girls. I have only ever purchased 1 Disney Family Fun magazine. I usually read the Disney Family Fun magazine while I am at the Y and make a mental note of the activity I want to do and then forget how to do it once I am ready to do it. I am deserving of the Disney Family Fun subscription because one of my goals in life is to be as creative as Shannon McClure, and an avid reader/supporter of all things created by Shannon McClure.

As a gramma, I would LOVE to have a magazine with fun ideas for crafts with my granddaughters! Also, I own a Pottery Painting Studio and would be able to use and promote the magazine with my line of Disney Bisque!
