Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
With spring’s promise of warmer weather and longer days, it’s no wonder that “green” is on everyone’s mind during March! Whether you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or thinking ahead to summer camp, this month’s issue of Connecticut Parent Magazine is full o’ fun!
The Camp Resource Guide returns and is packed with day, residential and specialized sports camps to assist you in navigating tons of camp opportunities. One of the most important steps in finding the perfect fit for your child is connecting with the camp and asking questions. So while you’re busy narrowing down your list, read about the benefits of parent-camp communication.
The joys of outdoor fun also bring about “spring cleaning.” Learn how to get the kids involved for your sanity — err . . . for their own enrichment! The long-term benefits of chores may be more rewarding than you previously thought and can help your little ones to succeed in school. Speaking of school, spring fever will be here before you know it and can derail kids’ academic efforts. Learn how to help your kids finish the school year the strong!
"Be-leaf" it or not, there’s more to celebrate than warmer weather this month – and you don’t have to look far (or under a clover) to find it! St. Patrick’s Day brings tons of fun events and crafts to this issue. Plus, Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America Day kick off the month with enriching festivities at local libraries and more!
Read about these sham-rockin', Seussical events in the Family Fun Calendar, along with something special for each day of March. Get ready for a month that’s blooming with family fun!
