I remember that as I was growing up I would be excited to read Highlights whenever I would go to the dentist or doctor. I never had a subscription to the magazine, but I always enjoyed looking at the Hidden Pictures, reading The Timbertoes and the Goofus and Gallant Moments. Now children can go to the HighlightsKids.com web site and enjoy some of the same things.
Listen to a story, try one of the easy science activities or create a gingerbread house. Play some of the games online or print them to try later. There are so many activities that it will take some time to explore all the possibilities. Best of all, it's still the same Highlights that I remember enjoying when I was younger.
