I have found the following magazines to offer great ideas for moms and families. There are alot out there and here are just a few:
Also check out Kidz Rule Usa. Its a cool magazine that my daughter gets at her gymnastics class. Its a local magazine that caters to families living in S'ern NH and Greater Manchester. www.kidzrule.com There's some great discounts to area events and cool contests for kids.
At the same time, beware that many of these are just vehicles for advertising, aimed to make us moms feel we need to buy lots of stuff and look a certain way. Read them, by all means (especially Brain, Child), but know that they are trying to market at you.
