This freebie was available to select Mom Ambassadors by invitation only. I was so excited to be invited as I've always been a fan of National Geographic, collecting magazines even as a child. Moms Meet and National Geographic Kids sent my kids and I a new "Almanac 2017", "Weird but True Sticker Doodle Book" and a surprise bonus "Year of Daily Calm" for free in exchange for completing a few tasks and submitting screenshots back to Mom's Meet. One of those tasks was to have my children create a time capsule of ten items to show kids in 2050 what life is like today. Their choices were so different it had me wondering what other children of their generation would choose. So, have a bit of educational fun with your children and have them make a time-capsule. I'd love to see the results! Of course both of my children were very specific in what they choice, neither quite understood the relevance of what we were doing!
I'd never heard of the National Geographic Kids Almanac. Neither had my children. We've all had some fun reading the 2017 edition! It's seriously full of educational information for every subject you can imagine. It's like a mini-encyclopedia, but with way cooler layout and tons of photos and graphics to really interest children and even adults. Every page resulted in either excitement or disbelief. So many conversations were started in such a short time. It was nice to see my children have such interest in something educational and with enough excitement to even get my husband involved. He even enjoyed the book himself!
We'll all be looking forward to the next year's almanac, though feel sorry for everyone involved with the obvious hard work that goes into creating it. The extra book (A Year of Daily Calm) was a lovely and thoughtful addition to this campaign. Beautifully photographed and quite helpful as I endure an anxiety disorder while also managing the common stress of motherhood!
