Molly’s Money Saving Digest—April 2010

The theme of  the April issue of Molly’s Money Saving Digest is “Homemade Happiness-Frugal Fun and Games.”

This 48-page issue is focused on kids. The feature article includes 30 homemade toys and games and activities to entertain your kids during the rainy month of April, although the ideas are all great for any time of year.  One article features a play kitchen built from an old entertainment center—It is precious! Too bad my kids are beyond the play-kitchen age!

The recipe section, as usual, includes delicious-sounding recipes  with color photos that are all easy enough for kids to help with.

My absolute favorite feature of the month is the “Kid’s Corner,” which features an “experiment” for the kids to do—baking chocolate chip cookies and calculating the cost per cookie for deli cookies, various store-bought cookie doughs and homemade cookies. What a fun way to incorporate math skills (measuring, fractions, division and more) with teaching your child to be a smart shopper!

Molly’s Digest sells for $4.95 for each month issue. But, better yet, check out the Molly’s Membership Program, which is only $3.95 a month and includes additional free e-books and gobs of extra resources!

I received a free download of Molly’s Digest in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I find that it is always much better to make cheap homemade toys at home than to pay outrageous prices for them at stores.
