Subscribe to kids publications that come addressed to your child. They will look forward to getting mail each month. We received Highlights when we were kids but there are lots of magazines available now that are made just for kids. Research options with your child and let him or her have the final say. Oh, and if you’ve got a child really into something specific, like skateboarding or fishing, don’t limit them to the ‘kid’ magazines if they can handle the more adult reading level of mainstream publications!
