We are thrilled to be working with KidGrade—I just love the entire concept behind this site. With KidGrade, you can find & rate family friendly dining, travel, shopping & fun. Ratings are specifically based on how kid friendly a location will be.
No more wasting money on a miserable experience! An amazing place may get top general ratings, but knowing exactly what to expect for kids is important for families. They officially launched in Chicago last month—and I’m already planning family road trips now that I have a reference for the best things to do with kids in one of my favorite cities.
In fact, it’s going on our official 2011 family fun calendar—the most frugal gift we’re giving this year. Each of our girls is receiving a paper calendar, with Family Fun Days already marked off. They may be as simple as family movie night or as involved as a day trip to Chicago, but I’m making a concerted effort to do more with the girls. The calendar itself is inexpensive (how about free?!), but I just know it’s going to be one of their favorite gifts.
We’ll be talking more about frugal holidays with KidGrade on Monday, November 29th—complete with $200 in prizes! Be sure to RSVP below to be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Additional gift card prizes will be awarded to Twitter party guests during a fun discussion—share gift ideas, holiday travel tips and more.
