National Geographic Kids Magazine Subscription from Unique Magazines

national geographic kids

Big man is really interested in the world around him so when I was offered to review a unique magazines subscription, I decided to go for National Geographic Kids. Ordering online was simple with options of a single issue, 6 months or a year subscription. By setting up a subscription you receive a discount of 27%. I  was able to set it up so that it was delivered to big man, the only thing worth remembering is that you have to wait for the next issue. They do send you conformation that the subscription is set up which might be useful if you are giving this as a gift.

Big man was excited to receive his first magazine and was particularly interested in the insects section. I did feel that there were a lot of adverts but this seems to be the case with most magazines. In this months issue it shows you how to make a pooter so we had a go ourselves.

I had to improvise slightly with some tissue paper and paper straws instead of plastic ones and tights. The theory was the same so I am pleased to say it worked.

It was really nice making it with big man and he was asking lots of questions. Mainly because he didn't want to end up with an ant in his mouth! We practiced on rice first.

Then he went in hunt of insects.

Ants were particularly easy to capture.

I am looking forward to seeing what the next few months are like. It would make a great present for an inquisitive child with a 6 month gift subscription at only £17.50

We recieved a years subscription for the purpose of this review but the opinions here are my own.

    How great that the magazine inspired your son to explore nature with his home made pooter! Thanks for linking up and sharing your bug fun with Country Kids.

    It isn't something I would have even thought of making without it x

  3. My eldest son is a subscriber too and loves it! My other children read his copy too and it helps loads with homework!

    I did think I should probably keep hold of the old copies for future homework/projects

    It is just his thing. I would rather less ants

  8. these look great, I will keep them in mind for when my son is old enough
