Discovery Girls Cover Creator App & Magazine Review & Giveaway

If you are like me, you may remember the days when to get yourself on the cover of the magazine you had to actually be famous or vist an amusement park with a magazine photo booth. Now girls can make their own magazine covers on an iPad, IPhone or ITouch with  Discovery Girls Cover Creator App!

Girls can create a cover with any photo from their album or take a picture with the camera. There are templates or create they can create their own unique design! They are able to place designed titles, cover lines, and embellishments…or create and add their own text and drawings! The possibilities are endless.

Both my daughters loved playing with it and making up cover after cover. One of my oldest daughter’s favorites is pictured above which is Girls Rule magazine. Gotta love that! My youngest daughter’s covers all had pictures of Littest Pet Shop Toys and the articles all had to do with toys and animals.  I love that they could be creative while using technology.

 

Somehow my babies grew up and became teens. I love that Discovery Girls articles and features are written by girls, for girls. This means the content touches on topics that really matter to tweens.

The  goal of the magazine is to help girls grow and develop, forming a positive sense of self through solutions that build confidence, resilience and independence.

  • Created by girls, for girls ages 8-12
  • Features real girls, dealing with real-life situations
  • Provides a community where girls can interact, share ideas, and realize they’re not alone
  • Includes fun, age-appropriate articles, quizzes and tools to help girls thrive
  • Empowers girls to celebrate who they are and strive to realize their potential

 

My 10 year old loves reading this magazine. I love that the pictures are of real girls and they are dressed in nice age appropriate clothing. There was a pull out of hairstyles in one issue that my daughter still looks over and gets ideas on how to wear her hair.

Discovery Girls Magazine Review and #Giveaway

discovery girls magazine

Somehow my little girl has turned into a tween and with that comes all kinds of new issues to deal with and explore. That is why I was glad to learn about Discovery Girls magazine

Discovery Girls is a destination where tween girls can express themselves, share ideas, connect with other girls and discover helpful tips for handling life’s ups and downs. Discovery Girls articles and features are written by girls, for girls–which means their content touches on topics that really matters to tweens. Their goal is to help girls grow and develop, forming a positive sense of self through solutions that build confidence, resilience and independence. I love how the magazine doesn’t try to be too grown up and that the girls in the magazine are “real girls”.

They consider all their readers to be “Discovery Girls” — girls who are curious, strong, and enthusiastic about becoming the very best they can be. (I LOVE all those attributes!) In each issue of Discovery Girls, they feature 12 “Discovery Girls” they’ve chosen to represent the state in the magazine. Every other month, they visit a different state for a two-day photo shoot, during which the 12 Discovery Girls from that state help put together the issue.

Overall, I found the magazines to be very age appropriate and great content for tweens. My daughter said that she loved the Discovery Girls magazines.  She especially liked that it had stories written by the girls themselves.

Discover Girls is offering on lucky reader a prize pack with the following items.

  • 1 complimentary year subscription to the magazine (a $20 value!)
