Do you have a young sports fan on your gift list? Check out Sports Illustrated Kids' Gotta Get It Gift Guide, filled with great gift ideas for active boys and girls. The Gift Guide will be featured in SI Kids' December 7 issue, along with their 2012 SportsKids of the Year and their first ever SportsParent of the Year.
And speaking of gift ideas, there's no better present than a subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids for getting kids to read, getting them inspired to be active, and minimizing new toy clutter. I got the kids a subscription to SI Kids a couple of years ago, and they really enjoyed reading about star athletes and about boys and girls their age who excel at sport. My kids are soccer fans, so they would have dearly loved to see more of the sport in the magazine, but they did enjoy learning about other sports, and they loved the comics and tear-out athlete cards. With the print subscription, we got access to the digital edition on our iPad, so we can recycle our old print issues and still get access to the articles in them. Plus, they get a new issue each month, so they have something to look forward to in the mail throughout the year!
Here's more information about SI Kids and the new SportsParent of the Year
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED Kids is THE magazine for boys and girls who love sports. The magazine presents sports the way kids want to read about them: with great action photos, easy-to-read stories about star athletes, helpful instructional tips from the pros, and humor, comics, and activities. SI Kids is a great way to encourage kids to read, and it has won highest honors from theAssociation of Educational Publishers and the Parents' Choice Award.
Not only has SI Kids won awards, they also give them out! This month, they crowned their first ever “SportsParent of the Year.” With the help of parenting bloggers, the magazine received numerous nominations to honor dedicated sports parents from around the U.S.
Modeled after the famed Sportsman and SportsKid of the Year awards, the “SportsParent of the Year” 2012 title was given to Kristie Finnan, a mother of 3. Finnan, a Pennsylvania native, coaches her daughter’s soccer team and regularly cheers on her children during soccer, basketball, gymnastics and Tae Kwon Do competitions.
