Fun, Education Stocking Stuffers from National Geographic Kids #Review + #Giveaway

I have most of my holiday shopping done. This is this first year that I have been this much ahead of the game. I finished Christmas shopping for my son in October, and just bought my hubby's big gift over the weekend. As I left to head out shopping last Saturday, hubby called out to me- 'Don't forget the stocking stuffers!' Right!? I hadn't given them much thought until his little reminder!

My hubby loves stocking presents, and is used to stocking presents beating out under the tree presents in the awesomeness rankings. I definitely want the stocking presents to be cool and fun, and useful- no one wants a stocking full of junk.

National Geographic Kids provides children with amazing resources- both in print and online, to learn about animals and the wild! I have my own little wild man at home, who loves to learn about animals and creatures. When we received an opportunity to review an awesome set of activity books from National Geographic Kids, we jumped at the chance. Get ready to kiss those boring stocking stuffers goodbye!

Check out this awesome set of activity books from National Geographic Kids!

We received a set of seven activity books from National Geographic Kids. I couldn't wait to show these to B, and see what he thought of them! All of the books are just beautiful, and I know how that sounds with scary sharks and roaring dinos on the covers, but they are really cool! Since the covers looks so great, I knew the content inside of the books would be awesome, as well!

B was immediately drawn to the Dino and Shark Sticker Activity Books.

The Shark and Dino Sticker Activity Books are filled with cool stickers, puzzles and activities that kids will love!

A sneak peek at the Sharks...

NG Kids Shark Activity Sticker Book ($6.99)
Attention shark-crazy kids! Rule the ocean in this shark-tastic sticker and activity book that is packed with mazes, spelling and pattern games, drawing activities, shark facts, and more.  

Take a look inside the Dino book...

...and don't forget about those cool stickers!

NG Kids Dinos! Sticker Activity Book ($6.99)
An exciting interactive title chock-full of the fiercest, most powerful, and most fun dinosaurs. Perfect for dino-loving kids, this book brings National Geographic Kids signature content to a sticker and activity book format that is packed with mazes, spelling and pattern games and drawing activities, all with a prehistoric theme. 

B was blown away by all of the stickers in the Shark and Dino Activity Books! Although these are pre-holiday gifts for him, they would make amazing stocking stuffers for any boy or girl who loves to learn about animals! We've been having a lot of fun with these activity books, and they're going to be especially wonderful to bring along with us on our next trip after the holidays are over.

We also received the very cool Weird But True Fact a Day FUN Journal!

My Weird But True Fact-A-Day Fun Journal  ($12.99)
Life's weird sometimes! Here's a chance for Weird But True fans to keep their own personal diary about the weird and wacky world around them. For inspiration, there's a Weird But True fact a day, plus a daily place for kids to report on all the WBT stuff they observe and experience on their own 24/7. It's a year's worth of fun to enjoy, record, and remember! 

Hilarious and weird fun facts that'll make your kids giggle!

We also received the NG Kids Funny Fill-Ins:  My Ancient Egypt, My Backyard Adventure, My Safari Adventure, My Inside Earth Adventure  ($4.99 each)

Filled with color pages, great photos, fun facts and laugh-out-loud illustrations, these four books are sure to provide hours of entertainment at home, at school, or on those long Christmas Day trips to Grandma's house!  Each book contains over 20 activities and, once completed, make one big story about a cool backyard adventure, an exciting safari, a trip inside Earth or exploring Ancient Egypt.

Check out these fun, colorful activity books!

These fill-ins will help your child work on their vocabulary skills, and will be an absolute hoot for the whole family!

The Weird But True Fun Fact a Day Journal and Fill-Ins are a bit too old for B just yet, but we're thinking that they would make awesomely fun gifts for our Cousin C, who is ten years old. He's going to think the fill-ins and weird facts are particularly fun!

Give the gift of fun and learning this holiday season, and say goodbye to stockings filled with candy and junk toys that'll fall apart before the end of the day! Any or all of these titles from National Geographics Kids would make awesome gifts this holiday season, or anytime!
