Summer's coming... are you ready? - an info wrap

"I'm bored!!!"    "Are we there yet?"   " I don't want to go to bed!"    "Why do I have to go outside, I'd rather play on my computer?"  "What's on t.v.?"   Sound familiar?

As the family calendar fills with road trips, camping trips, and other fun summer activities, it can seem as if there won't be a single spare moment for boredom--until you hear those four dreaded words: "Are we there yet?" This month, we're sharing samplings from some of Free Spirit's most popular In a Jar® products.

From the backyard to the backseat and everywhere in between, these unique, engaging, and easy-to-use jars make learning fun, portable, and spontaneous. Each jar contains 101 cards with challenges, brainteasers, discussion topics, or story starters to make even the longest road trip or rainiest summer day fly by. And for the kids who are "stuck" hanging out with their siblings over summer break, we have some reminders about why it's cool to stick together.

Seven Super Things About Sibs

    1. Sibs are there for you.

     When you want to play, hang out, joke around, talk, or just be next to someone, you don’t have to pick up the phone—you have someone right at home. Your sibs are with you early in the morning or late at night, times when it’s not as convenient to be around friends. And your sibs are often there for you during life’s weirder moments, like when Aunt Bertie tells you long, boring stories about her cats. Best of all, your sibs are there to share the fun times—school breaks, birthdays, holidays, and special family celebrations.

2. Sibs know the real you.

      Even your closest friends don’t always see every side of you. They may not know what you’re like the moment you wake up, or on a bad day, or when you’re crying your eyes out over a really sad movie. But your sibs know—because with them, you’re totally yourself (and they love you anyway).

3.  There’s room to grow.
     The relationships you have with your siblings help teach you about yourself and the world. You learn about handling strong emotions like anger and disappointment. You see how your words affect the people close to you. And you discover that everyone needs a little something called unconditional love. (It means people love you for who you are, through and through, no matter what you do.)

4. Sibs look out for each other—and up to each other.
      Maybe your brother watches out for you on the playground. Maybe your sister is your role model, inspiring you to work on your goals. Maybe your siblings teach you new skills—or you teach them. One of the coolest things about having siblings is that you know they have your back (and you have theirs). That can really boost your confidence.
