National GeographicDid you know that Toe Wrestling is a competitive sport? Or that groundhogs can whistle? Me neither. I learned those weird but true facts while perusing the cool National Geographic daily planner for kids.

National Geographic has been a part of my life as far as I can remember. My dad subscribed to the magazine and I was always eager to read along with him. We would also watch the National Geographic television shows too. Though I learned a lot, it never seemed like it was a lecture or anything. They have a way of making animals, nature and geography exciting. Even now, NatGeo is saved as one of my favorite channels.

This is why I think this kids planner is so cool. Kids and tweens can track their day to day schedule while learning fun facts. Not to mention that I think it’s important to write things down for retention purposes and also that kids should start learning early on how to keep track of their busy schedules but, we’ll get back to that in a minute.

The National Geographic Kids Weird but True! Daily Planner makes getting organized for school FUN and injects some creative thinking into the process, too! While your child is writing down and tracking their schedule they are learning wild and wacky things about the world around them that are peppered throughout the pages.

Plus there are homework help sections, useful distance, volume, weight and multiplication charts and tons of space to write or doodle their daily schedule any way they wish.

 Weird But True Fact: Doodling Can Help You Concentrate.

As I was mentioning earlier, I think it’s important for kids to learn to organize and track their schedules. It will help them to learn early on how to manage their time. I also think it’s important to write things down as a form of learning and remembering. I’m old school like that. If you write it down you’re more likely to retain it and they can see it in front of them so they don’t overbook or forget anything.

That’s why I’m a fan of this planner, plus how cool is it to learn all the little bits of weird but true information your kid will find inside.

The National Geographic Kids Weird But True! Daily Planner is available at all major book stores and Amazon and is recommended for ages 8 – 12 (although, I have to tell you that I learned a lot of fun and cool things while looking through it).

I received a sample copy for review purposes only. All opinions are mine.

  • This looks fabulous for kids. I know my daughter would love it. She has several National Geographic books that she loves.

    • nice…add this one to her collection.

  • Michelle Gwynn Jones

    This is cool. Not sure why its for children, I think I could enjoy one of these – I need to make plans, I like fun facts.

    • yeah, i’d totally enjoy this type of planner as an adult…lol..i’m enjoying it NOW!

  • Claudia Krusch

    I had no idea Toe Wrestling is a competitive sport. This would be a great planner for my Son. He loves to learn fun facts.

  • Anosa Malanga VA

    The kid in me want this planner too. Hahaha! Everyday you gotta learn fun facts from this. Cool!

  • I am also a fan of National Geographic. I used to work in a media company and for 4 years I would claim every number of the magazine so I have quite a big collection. I was fascinated by every story. It’s great that they are focusing on children as well these days.

    • yes, i really like the focus being put on the kids. kids are like sponges and natgeo has a really good way of drawing people into learning.

  • Super Millennial

    Huge fan of National Geo — looks awesome. Wish I had these when I was a kid!

    • i wish i had them too. i had so many journals etc…if there was a natgeo one available i would have cherished it.

  • Rose Mont

    I think planners for anyone is a good thing. Kids have a lot going on that they can keep track of too. Homework, sports, appointments, deadlines and sleepovers. I love this fun/entertaining and educational planner!

  • I’m obsessed with planners, but I’m also quite obsessive with how I need everything so I haven’t really found a planner that suits me! Need to check this out, just for fun! 🙂

  • Tanya Finks

    How cool would it have been to start thinking about having monthly goals at a young age. Now that I bullet journal, I think about my goals at the start of each month, but if I had started that practice as a young person, who knows where I’d be right now 🙂

    • YUP…it’s a lot more important than people realize. kids need to learn early how to prioritize and plan. not saying they can’t have fun but, it’s good for them to see what is filling up their time and why.

  • Nicole Lee

    I worked for NatGeo for 2 years. I LOVE them as a company. They do amazing, educational things and this is one of them.

    • lucky! nice. i love them too.

  • David Elliott

    IT does look like such a cute planner. I am sure that my daughter would love it. As for doodling I agree. For me it helps me to focus my thoughts.

  • My daughter loved notebooks. I know she would loved to have this.

  • I love planners and note books. In fact I have so many that it takes years to get them full haha. This one looks like a great way to get started!

  • fashion-mommy

    It’s a lovely looking notebook and planner. I find that teenagers are particularly obsessed with notebooks so this would be a great gift idea.

  • This is such a cool planner and I think my daughter will love it

  • I would have loved a diary like this when I was younger. It would definitely have made planning home work and chores more fun! x
