Highlights for the Holidays

The Holidays are busy. There is a lot of running around. Either shopping or visiting family, your little ones just have to sit in the back seat and wait. I remember when I was little, the highlight of hanging out with my mom when she was running errands was going somewhere that had a Highlights magazine in the waiting room, but not just a random magazine. A Highlights issue that didn’t have all the Hidden Pictures circled yet. Now that was a treasure!

Highlights still has a great magazine today and they even expanded to include the new Hello magazine for babies under 2 and High 5 for ages 2-6. But our favorite are the Hidden Pictures iPad app and the Hidden Pictures Discover Puzzles. With over 1200 things to find.

So now when we are running around doing our errands and the long car ride to the grandparents house my daughter can search for the Hidden Pictures. It’s something fun for her to do and you can really lose track of time when you’re looking for them. I will get down and do them with her sometimes and it brings me right back to those days or sitting in the waiting room circling the newest issue of Highlights.


This book or a subscription to any of the Highlights magazines would make the perfect gift any time of the year. It’s the gift that keeps arriving every month!
