Enter to Win: Contagious Colors Prize Pack (1 Winner!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 3, 2013 · 170 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!


Here's another fun giveaway - this one just right for the middle schooler in your life!

If there’s one important thing Wilmer Dooley’s dad always says, it’s this: “Where are my car keys?”

Okay, maybe not that. He also says: “Observe!

In The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School, Wilmer knows that the greatest science comes from the keenest observations. So when he observes his classmates looking a little green…and orange...and chartreuse-fuchsia polka-dotted...he knows that it’s up to him to find the cause of this mysterious illness—and the cure!

But with his arch nemesis, Claudius Dill, hot on his heels; the eagle-eyed biology teacher, Mrs. Padgett, determined to thwart his plans; and a host of fluorescent classmates bouncing off the walls at increasingly dangerous speeds, can Wilmer prove he has what it takes to save the sixth grade from a colorful demise before it’s too late?

 

One (1) lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a Contagious Colors Prize Pack, which includes:

  • A copy of The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School
  • A $300 Visa gift card to upgrade your school supply closet
  • A set of Contagious Colors band-aids

We do nature walks with themes. Looking for certain colors or listening for certain sounds. Always fun to get some activity in with learning.

I always tell my daughter to try everything once. Be it the book about something you don't like or trying sushi for the first time. It may be the best thing ever and you won't know if you don't try.

47 vickie October 4, 2013 at 5:26 pm

we spend lots of time outdoors do lots of various activities...we camp, hike, bike, walk explore museums, fish and canoe just a short list. We encourage the kids without pushing...we also let them be kids and encourage them to ask lots of questions...to be inquisitive and curious.
One new thing we did this summer was put out our first garden...they loved picking out the veggies for their section and this helped them eat more veggies too.
Thanks
