Weekend Giveaway: Sparkle Stories

Today’s weekend giveaway is for one of our new family favorites: Sparkle Stories!

If you’re looking for a unique gift for the kids in your life, may I suggest this site? The tales are engaging and fun. A subscription make a unique gift that  doesn’t take up any room in the toy box, kids can share, and will give joy week after week.

This giveaway is now closed and winners will be announced Tuesday. Thanks!

The Fleck children are big fans of the Martin and Sylvia stories, but there are many subscription options sure to delight your child!

From the Sparkle Stories website:

“Sparkle is an online resource for high-quality audio stories for children and families. Each week Sparkle Stories delivers delightful audio stories to subscribers around the world.

We offer three original Story Series, plus a fourth Series with classic stories, songs and games, all designed to entertain and inspire the whole family.

Audio stories, or stories told out-loud, are untethered to images viewed on a screen. The child is free and able to paint her own pictures out of her own imagination. She becomes relaxed and entranced – committing herself fully to a fantastic adventure.

Sparkle Stories are fun, Sparkle Stories are inspiring, and Sparkle Stories are good for young minds and spirits! Our stories inspire a sense of wonder and magic in life, encourage creativity and a strong sense of self, and even illuminate common childhood challenges.”

Two Simple Kids winners will receive a 3-month subscription to the full Sparkle Story series
