FamilyFun Kids: New Publication from FamilyFun

Disney FamilyFun Magazine is launching a new publication this fall, for kids ages 6 to 12!

It is aptly titled, Disney FamilyFun Kids. It will be an ad-free (love that!), creative, positive, can-do magazine packed with a mix of original material and the best ideas from FamilyFun, newly adapted for kids: easy crafts and snacks kids can make on their own, think-outside-the-box puzzles and challenges, awesome games, art pages, and more.

I had an opportunity to take a sneak peek at a few pages from the first issue! I have to admit, I knew I was going to be a fan even before I laid eyes on the issue. It is after all the offspring of one of my favorite magazines.  Fortunately, I wasn't disappointed. I knew instantly, this was a magazine my six year old would snatch from the mail pile and pour over, followed by lots of experimenting, creating, coloring, and cutting-up. Six issues may not be enough! I predict young fans will demand more issues. From a parent's point of view you will appreciate the care the Editors took in presenting a kid-friendly product, with lots of vibrant photos and clear instructions, that promotes independence, creativity and a lot of fun. I know I can't wait until it hits newsstands!

Win a years subscription (6 issues) to Family Fun Kids!

BONUS! Win this cool t-shirt.

FamilyFun Kids is looking for submissions from YOU for two fun sections of the magazine.
 1. Have kids take a picture of their pet (or another animal) and write a funny caption to go with it.

 2. Challenge kids to make something weird out of chewing gum and googly eyes and send us a picture.

3. Have kids take photos of any other really cool projects they've done, such as crafts, games, recipes, artwork, and more ‹and briefly explain what the project is, how it was made, and what makes it so cool!)

Parents should email their kids ideas/photos to Jordan DeFrank at

 If your photo or idea is featured in the magazine, they will send you a cool t-shirt!

You can also subscribe to Family Fun Kids by visiting www.familyfun.com/kids.
A great Holiday gift idea!
