I have been majorly slacking the past few days so I decided to take today and play catch up! And remember there are still a ton of great Fun in the Sun giveaways to enter so make sure you check them out!

If you have kids you know how hard it can be to get them to do anything education related in the summertime. I am always looking for ways to incorporate fun and learning and it's not an easy task! About a month ago I was introduced to JumpStart.com when I was approached to do a review and giveaway for them. As always I did my research and discovered that JumpStart is the perfect mix of fun and educational which is something that makes this mom of four very happy! JumpStart is an adventure-based 3D virtual world that is easily personalized, super imaginative, and tons of fun while still being educational! JumpStart teaches your kids math, reading, and critical thinking in a new and super exciting way! Here is a little bit more about JumpStart from the website...

A little background on our company – For more than 15 years, Knowledge Adventure has set the standard in kid’s software by creating the finest educational products for use in the home and the classroom. In addition to our CD games, we’ve launched a beta version of our first browser-based virtual world at www.JumpStart.com, for kids 3-10 years old. Kids can create avatars called Jumpeez for themselves and explore magical worlds, discovering and unlocking games, videos, and storybooks that teach everything from math to reading. Over the next year, we will continue to add more features, portals and learning games to this site. I encourage you to check it out at www.JumpStart.com.

My children are always playing games on the computer the problem is that the games that they choose to play are not at all educational and at their own admission are not always so much fun! My oldest daughter Taylor (10) and my middle daughter Savanna (7) were my guinea pigs for this review and they were absolutely ready and willing to help me out! The first thing I noticed about JumpStart was how interactive the game is! One of the very first activities is creating your own Jumpeez character which both of my girls absolutely loved doing! Once the girls got started playing they loved all of the different lands they could visit and mini-games they could play. I liked the fact that they were playing a game that they enjoyed and learning at the same time...what mom doesn't love that!
