Submissions for Family's Fun New Magazine and a Giveaway!

 Do you know the Disney Family Fun magazine?

I am excited to share with you that, coming this fall, is the new Disney FamilyFun Kids!

This is an ad-free magazine just for kids ages 6 to 12. In the words of its creators:
"It is a creative, positive, can-do magazine packed with a mix of original material and the best ideas from FamilyFun, newly adapted for kids: easy crafts and snacks
kids can make on their own, think-outside-the-box puzzles and challenges, awesome games, art pages, and more."

And they are inviting submissions from you!

The team is looking for submissions in these three categories:
  1. Have kids take a picture of their pet (or another animal) and write a funny caption to go with it.
  2. Challenge kids to make something weird out of chewing gum and googlyeyes and send them a picture.
  3. Have kids take photos of any other really cool projects they've done, such as crafts, games, recipes, artwork, and more, and briefly explain what the project is, how it was made, and what makes it so cool.
Parents should email their kids' ideas/photos to Jordan DeFrank at Jordan.L.DeFrank@disney.com. If your idea gets featured in the magazine, they'll send your kid this cool t-shirt!


And now for the giveaway -

Disney FamilyFun is offering a year's subscription (6 issues) to the new FamilyFun Kids (not the regular Family Fun) to one lucky reader within the USA! All you need to do is leave a comment to this post by midnight Friday October 14, and I'll do a random name draw on Saturday. Make sure you provide access to an email address at which you can be contacted. Good luck, everyone! 


You can see a preview of the first issue here, and subscribe to the magazine here.

  3. Interesting revamp. I guess the trendy adult fascination with DIY is finally trickling down to kids in publishers' minds. About time.
