Support Scholastic and Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini Wheats® are challenging you and your family to work together to give back to your local schools. The great part is it is really no work on your part at all, it is simple family fun!
Every Day is a Big Day
Families are invited to complete monthly missions for an opportunity to earn free Scholastic books and be entered into a sweepstakes.
By visiting http://www.scholastic.com/minimissions you can participate in the theme of the month and earn books and prizes for you school. The current month, September, is Outdoor Explorer.
Objective: Families should engage in hands-on learning, and enjoy the fresh air by taking part in outdoor adventures.
Task: Extend the classroom outdoors. Commit to 4 outdoor learning pursuits as a family and share the results.
We have started participating and have three entries so far. It is still warm here in South Florida so we get outside for a little fun when we can either on the weekends or after work and school. One of our favorite things to do is to play badminton in the back yard. This is a great way to encourage kids to work together as a team, and enjoy some friendly competition.
My husband and older son will often spend Saturday’s hitting the golf course. My daughter always wants to go but at 7 she is a little young for playing a round of golf. Since she wanted to go so bad we decided instead to make a it a family affair one evening at the golf range to work on aim, our swing, and played a small game of family putt-putt on the greens.
Each month there is a new mission and tips for how to make the missions fun for the whole family.
