KNOW & YES MAG Review and Giveaway

We love to find educational activities for our children to do especially now that it is getting colder and we will be spending more time inside. My son loves to learn and find out "how come?" & "why?" when we had the chance to review the Canadian magazine KNOW and YES MAG, we were very excited. I think the first thing that came to P's mind when I told him about it was that he was going to get fun mail just for him.

KNOW & YES MAG are award winning science magazines published by Mad Science. They are Canadian and are Eco friendly by being printed on Ancient Forest Friendly certified, 100% recycled paper. Renewal notices and letterhead are also printed on 100% recycled paper.

YES MAG is geared for the older kids ages 10-15 and contains tons of great science facts, articles and hands on projects. We reviewed The Science of Junk Food issue. I will tell you I learned a few things about food that maybe I shouldn't have, now I will be staying away from certain things. Each issue comes with a main topic and then is talked about throughout the issue. Each are packed with tons of cool sciences whys and hows. I am very tempted to pick up YES MAG now just for myself and hubby who loves science and interesting facts.
KNOW is geared for the younger scientist ages 6-9. This is something that we have sat down with our children to read and found our son was very interested in each and every page. Like YES MAG each issue has a main topic it discusses like Shells or Bats. There are comic book type pages and also real life photos which I love it each issue. I also love that at the back there is a section called Know and Tell where children are asked to send in drawings or poems for the upcoming issue and they can be featured on the last two pages of the issue.

Did you know that there really are bats that are called Vampire Bats and they have a chemical in the bat saliva that makes blood flow called draculin?

The yearly subscription in Canada for 1 year (6 issues) is $24.95 (plus GST/HST), US is $26 and International is $38 for one year. You can also shop their store for back issues, books and fun t-shirts.

Do you have a Mad Scientist in your house or know one that would love this as a Christmas gift? Our great friends at KNOW & YES MAG magazine would like to offer 1 lucky Canadian Coupon Mom reader their choice of a yearly subscription just in time for gift giving!
