Jumpstart.com 12 Months Membership Giveaway! CLOSED

January 9, 2010
Jump Into Learning All Year Long!
With Jumpstart.com.

It has been nearly a year since my kids have been members of the Jumpstart.com online 3-D world. My 5yrold is now reading level 1 books, I think he shocks himself at times! My middle child is still totally enamored of the more creative artistic portions of the site. She especially loves the fashion show parts!

Take a look at all the new areas that have been added to Jumpstart.com this year! If you haven’t jumped into Jumpstart.com for a while, it’s worth taking a fresh look:

Plus we love that the ‘world’ is decorated for the holidays, complete with fireworks and wintery themes! Can’t wait to see what Valentine’s will bring!

From the Jumstart.com Blog:

PhotobucketIt is amazing to think that just one short year ago, our online game was a single-player world with only one major portal – StoryLand. Now, from the moment you enter JumpStart.com, you are surrounded by dancing Jumpeez, swerving rides, bouncing pets, and grinning emoticons. Plus, with the addition of the FutureLand, AdventureLand, MarineLand, SpeedDrome, DownTown, and Neighborhood portals, MainStreet is just the beginning of the fun.

And you do just that. You play and gather fun things and when you have enough.. you get to float away on a hot air balloon, Dorothy Style! And of course all there is so much learning while they are playing they hardly realize what they are getting out of it! #learnNplay baby!

My 8yrold’s favorite part is the fashion show. {No wonder, I think}, she has been creating American Girl Doll dress up clothes for nearly 2 years now. She’s a regular fashion designer diva these days!

The 5yrold prefers… um. Everything. I asked him and he couldn’t decide. He is all about numbers right now.. so the math games rock. But he is seriously on the cusp of reading, so the library part is perfect!

And they all like the music!

What does mom likes the best? That they barely realize they are learning. Numbers, letters, shapes, music…. what could be better? Well besides brownies?

Here’s how my family escapes….

On Sunday nights The Dad figure bakes cookies with the kids. They make a big giant mess and I get to stay OUT of the way. They learn: measuring, the importance of Dad time, and just how many chocolate chips they can pilfer before dad notices.

Another Dad activity is carving pumpkins. If it’s left to mom, they get a bagful of markers to decorate it. With Dad it’s all knives and designs and gross insides! They learn: Dad is awesome, big knives are sharp and sometimes make dad bleed, and pretending to blow chunks while holding pumpkin guts in your hand is hilarious!
