Let Us Color Your Mutt!

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Ok… so we don’t actually want to dye your dog (which has become kind of a thing lately, but that’s a conversation for another day). We’re looking for inspiration for a brand new series of coloring pages, and we think our inspiration lives in your backyard and goes, “woof!”

If you’re already a fan of our printables, worksheets, and coloring pages, you may have happened across this set of 20 popular dog breeds. We’ve done the Pomeranian, Cocker Spaniel, and Labrador thing already, but we (and the lovely families who use our site!) want more. More breeds, more mutts, more cute puppy faces.

And not only do you and your doggy get the glory of being famous (well… kind of), but we want you to give you fun stuff for helping out, too! Everybody who sends in a cute dog photo for the Color Your Mutt contest will be automatically entered to win 1 of 5 one-year subscriptions to PLUS, our new subscription service that gives you access to unlimited printable workbooks as well as advanced features that let you create your own custom workbooks by downloading content in bulk.

Plus, we’ll pick our very favorite doggy coloring pages to feature in an upcoming coloring book (approximately 20 dogs). If your dog’s coloring page is included, we’ll mail you a physical copy of the coloring book (and you’ll always be able to come to to download it, too).

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Follow on Twitter, or follow our Pinterest page.
  2. Tweet or pin a favorite picture of your pooch, and include the hashtag #ColorYourMutt in the tweet on Twitter or pin on Pinterest. Please also include the name of your dog and the name of his breed. If he’s a mutt, feel free to give his breed your best guess! Combo breeds (think labra-cocker-shepherd-doodle) are very much allowed.
  3. That’s it! You’ll be automatically entered to win both a PLUS subscription, and a free printed coloring book featuring your family dog.

Please note: by submitting a photo on Twitter or Pinterest, you give permission to use your name, social handle, photo, and statements made in any way for any and all purposes, without additional compensation.

Want to win a box of goodies for your kids (while you help out other parents)? Here’s your chance!

Friday, September 10th, 2010

I bet you’d be surprised if you really stopped to think about what an “expert” you are as a parent. Remember the time you “cured” your toddler of her nightly bad dreams, helped your 8-year-old (finally) eat veggies, or got your 4th grader to do his homework without (too much) grumbling? Believe it or not, there are hundreds, maybe thousands of parents out there who are dealing with a parenting riddle that you’ve already solved!

Come share your expert experience by answering a question in the JustAsk forum. We think you’ll love how it feels to help out another mom or dad, but just in case you need a little extra incentive, how’d you like to win a box of handpicked, age-appropriate games and books for your kiddos? Now’s your chance!

All you have to do is share your parenting expertise by answering one or more questions in JustAsk,’s community question and answer forum! has tons of prizes to give away, and over the next few weeks, we’ll be hosting several competitions.

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, big brother or sister, nanny, or grandparent, our community wants to hear from you! (more…)
