Got Bored Kids? Here’s My Little Trick…

Are you tired of your kids getting sucked into mindless games, television, and videos? Here’s my workaround…

I recognize the need to decompress and be a part of the digital world. But I’d MUCH rather have them be benefiting long term from their time on electronics. That’s why I am glad to have found ABCmouse is the a fun “game” software (except you don’t download ANYTHING) that allows kids from ages 2-8 to LEARN while they are PLAYING! Read below to see why I like and why my kids like it too! Plus I’ve got an ABCmouse video review at the bottom of this post:


#1 – THE DEAL: Save 50% on a WHOLE YEAR!

You can get TWELVE months access to for $45!! That works out to only $3.75 a month!!  That’s cheaper than ONE workbook that they’ll be board with in just a couple days!

#2 – Customize for up to 3 Children

The settings are awesome! Got one, two or three children ages 2-8? They can each have their own user profile! AND each one of them can learn at a different level and pace! Each child has their own profile and you can set up daily time limits as well as the hours that the game will work.

Your child(ren) will learn a lot, just by going through the “lessons” (which are like games). You’ll be giving them a great head start on their education, and it will cost just a fraction of what you’d pay for preschool every month!

#3 – Step-by-Step Learning:abcmouse-levels

The Step-by-Step Learning Path presents the full curriculum in a carefully designed program of more than 450 lessons in each of the six TEN levels. You can move the level forward or backwards so it’s the right pace for your child! THIS IS AWESOME!!

Have your kids been on summer or winter break (or if you’re like me at this time of writing… on day five of #snowpocalypse)? Prep their brains and have them spend a little extra time on ABCmouse to get back into the fun learning mindset.

#4 – Rewards:

As your child(ren) completes each lesson, he or she is guided to the next one and is motivated to continue learning by’s Tickets and Rewards System (this is what my seven year old LOVES). They can earn virtual items for their room, themselves, their virtual pets, and more!

The lessons of the Step-by-Step Learning Path consist of books, puzzles, games, songs, art activities, and/or printables that relate to a specific topic. Each lesson offers children several different ways to learn, in accordance with the recommendations of early childhood experts.

This is why my kids like

They love designing their own little avatar. In fact, my daughter wants to “earn tickets” to buy more clothing for her little customized avatar. I love the motivation and how this is teaching her to “work” to “earn” something!

Pets – they can earn pets and toys for their pets… this takes me right back to the whole motivational piece. Yes, it’s so worth it!

Games, Songs, Stories… there is such a variety. They learn by listening, seeing, and then they incorporate the hand and eye coordination, and then your child sings a long. I love that they learn on so many different levels!

And don’t forget that you can have up to THREE profiles on ABCmouse… THIS WORKS FOR KIDS AGES 2 ALL THE WAY TO 2ND GRADE!! Give it a try, I bet your kids will loves playing and they won’t even know they are learning! Get now! Deals:
