child-and-mom-readingSummer vacation is just around the corner. You are going to have to find a way to entertain the kids! A great way to do that is to sign them up for a kid’s summer book club. Keep them interested in reading (even when school is out).

Barnes & Noble Summer Reading
How: Print out a Reading Journal form. You can download one for free at the Barnes & Noble website. Your child must read 8 books, and fill in basic information about the books onto the Reading Journal. Bring the completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store. This club is for kids in grades 1-6.

What Your Child Can Earn: One finished Reading Journal earns your child 1 free book (from the selection that is printed on the Reading Journal list at the Barnes & Noble store).

When: Begins May 21, 2013. Ends September 3, 2013.

Junie B. Jones Reading Club
How: Visit the Random House Junie B. Jones website. Enroll your child into the Junie B. Kids Reading Club. Start by filling out the form on their website.

What it Comes With: One free copy of the book Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus (while supplies last). Your child gets exclusive access to activity pages and a membership ID card.

When: This one will send you seasonal updates about new books, games, activities, special events, and more. I believe this one is year round.

Sylvan Book Adventure
How: Parents need to sign up with the website. Kids start at the website to search for a book. Next, your child has to acquire that book, read it (offline), and then return to take a quiz about the book. This club is for kids in grades K-8.

What Your Child Can Earn: Kids can earn points from taking a quiz about a book. Those points can be collected and exchanged for several different types of prizes. Some prizes include books, temporary tattoos, a candy bar, and more.

Bob Jones University Summer Reading
How: Parents need to visit the website and check out the reading requirements. Next, take a look at the suggested reading lists. Print out a Reading Log. Your child will color part of it as he or she participates in the reading program. Submit the completed reading goals form to the website before August 15, 2013. This program is for kids ages 4 – 17.

What Your Child Might Win: Prizes are awarded “while supplies last”. Your child might be entered to win a Summer Reading Tote bag filled with JourneyForth books. The grand prize is a Kindle Fire.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
