All of you Jumpeez have been doing such a great job with sending in your Newspaper Submissions that we want you to see what all the other Jumpeez have been submitting too! We now have a page that holds all of the current and past submissions, including riddles and answers, kid’s stories, shoutouts, and question and answers that Frankie responds to directly.
For a long time, Frankie has been getting a lot of questions from Jumpeez, asking ‘Where can I see what I submitted?’. Well, we now have the solution to this problem! We created a page, just for you Jumpeez, to be able to see what is going on in JumpStart and what other Jumpeez are talking about when writing into The JumpStart Times.
To go check out this awesome page, head over to JumpStart and get signed into your account. Once you are on your homepage, you will see a button on the right hand sign of the screen named ‘View Submissions’ click on this button to be taken to the Kids Submissions page.
Go see if you can find your own past submissions, questions you are looking for an answer to, or funny jokes you want to share with your friends. Whatever you are looking for, we have it here. Be sure to let us know what you like about the page and what other features you Jumpeez are looking for. Frankie is always looking for the next BIG idea to make JumpStart the best game for you!

Have you been looking for more ways to get the family together for a fun night of bonding? Start making memories with your kids this spring by revamping some of your regular family night activities. With the weather warning, now is the perfect time to start including a few more outdoor activities to your plans. Here are a few exciting ways that you can get everyone excited for family nights this spring –
If the weather in your area permits, plan to set up a makeshift campsite in the backyard on a warm spring night. Your might even include a safely positioned fire pit for kids to roast marshmallows and make s’mores over a session of campfire stories. This change in pace will be a night to remember.
Afternoon bike rides or nature hikes:
Early evening bike rides or nature hikes can be a great way to keep kids active and healthy. Make these types of activities adventure in learning by teaching kids fun facts about local greenery or sights. You might even add this to your regular routine as a means of getting the family to exercise.
Outdoor movie nights:
Come spring many communities often sponsor and organize outdoor moving screenings. Do your research and see if you can treat the family to an outdoor film event where they can share a spring picnic amongst friends, family, and neighbors. Having dinner under the stars will give a real twist to your family’s regular movie nights.
