My mom purchased Clubhouse Jr for the kids a few months ago. Published by Focus On The Family, this magazine has been around since I was a child. For ages 3-7, my kiddos fall right into this category.
I have to say that the first two issues we received were disappointing. A lot of the magazine contained pictures, drawing, and jokes sent in by readers.
Then we received this month issue!!! LOVE. IT.
They have added more pages and activities. The stories are fun and engaging. Even today we have three activities planned that are suggested in the magazine.
Different than the other magazine that we subscribe to (which I love as well), Clubhouse JR includes information about other countries. As we read, we are constantly looking at the map. I love how it exposes our kiddos to other cultures and countries throughout the world!
Here is what Focus on the Family has to say about it:
The top 5 reasons why kids love being in “The Club”:
– Character-building stories and exciting articles.
– Cooking, baking and crafts activities.
– Colorful illustrations and photography.
– Fun-filled puzzles, games, riddles and jokes.
– A worldwide community of Clubhouse friends.
But that’s not all! Parents and grandparents love both Clubhouse Jr. and Clubhouse magazines because they build character in youngsters through the simple, life-changing, biblical values that fill each story, craft, joke and article.
This month we read a wonderful article on the Fruits of the Spirit. The abstract terms were made so simple that even Sweet Pea understands the “fruits”.
