Here’s a great offer from Scholastic Books and Kumon Learning Centers. Your child can earn up to five FREE Scholastic books by completing math and/or reading worksheets. Children can earn two books by completing one activity sheet and five books by completing two activity sheets. The promotion allows for a maximum of five books per household. This page has more information about how to enter. This page has the official rules and regulations for this promotion.

I just downloaded the worksheets for twin brother and twin sister and they look like they’ll be fun for the kids to do. I guess I’ll have them pick one type of activity and then each can submit for two free books!

Thanks Lea Ann!

This sounds like a cool thing to do, especially if your little ones are adventurous.

From their website:

Saturday,  April 2nd from 10:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. FREE PROGRAM
A free extravaganza for the whole family awaits bird enthusiasts and nature lovers at the Trinity River Audubon Center. As the country looks toward Earth Day, Celebrate Bird Fest showcases the power and diversity of birds with an opportunity for children and adults to Meet Birds of Prey up close, Fly Homing Pigeons, Dissect Owl Pellets (What?), and take guided birding hikes. There will be craft stations to create bird art and learn about binoculars and spotting scopes! The celebration features an additional earth-friendly element as participants build bird houses and make bird feeders. More info.
