Your kids may be asking for the latest apps and games, but mom knows best! That screen time can be both fun and educational! Snag a Reading Eggs subscription this Christmas and give the gift of purposeful fun!
Post sponsored by Reading Eggs – a company our family has used for years to supplement our homeschooling.
I’m one of those moms. I have purchased subscriptions and downloads of games and apps for my kids for Christmas. BUT, I try very hard to make sure they have some sort of educational value to them.
For instance, a few years ago, I purchased a drawing app for my artist daughter. It was a great investment!
And then I purchased a game based on World War II – not quite as educational, but still not too bad.
But, wouldn’t it be great if the games you purchased for your kids this Christmas actually taught them to read or helped them with their math?!
(nodding my head, “YES!”)
Enter Reading Eggs!
Let’s talk about why Reading Eggs in particular is such a good Christmas gift idea…
#1 – You get a FREE TRIAL of Reading Eggs for 4 weeks!
That means you can try it out and decide if it is a good fit for your family. A lot of learning resources give you a few days or a week, but with 4 weeks you have plenty of time to really use the program and decide if it is helping!
#2 – Your subscription gives you access to Reading Eggs AND Math Seeds!
It doesn’t matter which plan you choose, you have access to both the reading and math sides of the program! That is amazing (and oh so helpful!)
#3 – Reading Eggs has a Family Plan!
You can buy a single subscription for $9.95 a month, a yearly subscription for 1 child for $59 a year, OR you can buy a family plan for 2-4 children at $89 a year! And remember they ALL have access to Reading Eggs and Math Seeds!
#4 – Reading Eggs doestn’ ask for your credit card for your free trial!
How many times have you signed up for a “free” trial and been asked for your credit card info because as soon as the free trial is up, they’re going to automatically charge your card? I hate that! Reading Eggs doesn’t do that! You get the free trial without needing to give out your credit card info. That’s how much they believe you will LOVE their product and want more!
#5 – The app syncs between platforms.
If my son started Reading Eggs on my laptop and the next day needs to use the iPad instead, guess what?! His work is saved and he can start right where he left off no matter which platform he’s using!
#6 – Reading Eggs teaching phonics and reading skills without making it boring or “too fun.”
My kids have never once complained about Reading Eggs being boring. They love it! And on the flip side, I don’t feel like it is all fun and games and no learning like other apps I’ve tried. It’s a perfect blend of interesting games and puzzles that teach as they entertain.

Reading Eggs really has been a tremendous help in our homeschool, and my kids even ask to use it as their “game time” on the weekends! So, in my opinion, Reading Eggs is a fantastic Christmas gift that doesn’t clutter up your house and will actually teach your kids something useful!
