The best magazine subscriptions for kids

Posted on Posted in All posts, Home Education, Products, Reviews & Recommendations

I can officially mention Christmas now its December ūüėÄ *HUGE SMILES*

With only THREE weeks left until the big day I’ve started scouring the internet for the best, coolest and useful stocking filler gifts for the kids this year. I don’t want to fill them with things just for the sake of it. I want to find good, useful gifts. But what can I get?

A magazine subscription

One gift I’ve put high on Zips stocking list this year is another magazine subscription. They are the perfect gift really because they are a gift that isn’t just for christmas. Every month or so a cool magazine will be delivered to him and I can roll up the Christmas issue to put in their stocking with a little note. ūüôā

That got me searching for the best magazines and I unearthed some pretty cool ones this year!

So without further ado, here is REOLife’s top picks for fun, educational magazine subscriptions that your kids (and mine) will love!

What is it?

This isn’t actually a magazine subscription and is actually a membership to RSPB with loads of great benefits – one of them being a cool magazine.¬† We have the family subscription which covers the whole family but there is also an option for a junior membership for the children only. Both subscriptions give you entry to more than 170 nature reserves,¬†each child gets their own magazine 6 times per year, children become wildlife explorers and can hire explorer bags with binoculars, bug viewers and other explorer equipment for free at reserves and a free gift per person (plus extras for the family membership). We found the gifts and handbooks very useful and the kids love the magazines plus we also use the reserves regularly for nature study so its a win for us and nature!
