One of the magazines I receive every month is Disney FamilyFun magazine. Some people may shy away from this magazine because they think it is all about Disney. While there are ads for Disney movies, products and theme parks, that is not what this magazine is all about. Parents, with advice from their kids, designed this magazine to be a helpful, informative and a fun resource of information and inspiration for other parents and their kids.
FamilyFun magazine is packed full of fun ideas to do with your kids and ways to spend quality time together. There are easy to do crafts, recipes and creative solutions to common problems that today's families face. In addition, you will find inspiration for parties, playtime, getaways, reviews from parents on books, movies and video games, and general advice for both parents and kids alike. They showcase children throughout the magazine and post readers photos of projects that they have created, either on their own, or from things that were printed in back issues of the magazine.
If you have ever stayed at one of the Disney Resort Hotels, chances are you have seen this magazine, because a complimentary issue is usually provided in all the rooms. I have been a subscriber of Disney FamilyFun since my daughter was little and together my kids and I have made everything from Christmas decorations to fun family dinners. Now that she is a teenager, and my son is 9, we have pretty much outgrown many of the activities since they are geared towards younger children. I still enjoy reading it every month because I like the easy recipes, travel ideas and parenting articles. As a subscriber, you can sign up for email copies of the magazine to be sent to your inbox each month, as well as still getting the paper copy in the mail. I don't like reading magazines online, so I stick with the print version.
I highly recommend this magazine to parents or grandparents of young children. I think it would also be a perfect for Girl Scout or Boy Scout troops, as well, because many of the craft and cooking projects would be great for earning those merit badges.
