If your toddlers need something to do during the winter, you might want to think about getting some children's magazines.
We have a grandbaby that is 3 yrs old now, and when I asked my daughter what I could get the grandbaby, she said, "Send her something to do!"
The last time I was in Walmart I happened to walk by the magazine rack and saw a Nicolodeon Magazine. It was cute and looked like there was some fun things to do in it, but I didn't get it because it was $4.95! I thought I might as well buy a subscription online for a fraction of the cost, and then she will have something to do all winter long, and may even look forward to them coming in the mail.
The first website I went to was the Nickolodian website, to see about their magazines for kids. I was delighted to see that they now have magazines for 2 to 4 yr olds, so this is what I subscribed to, and had them sent to the grandbaby's address as a gift.
The next spot I found to get some discounted Toddler Magazines was Magazine City. They have a nice website that is easy to use, and what a variety of magazines! You have just got to check it out.
