Show Off Your Room and Win a Prize!

UPDATE: This contest has now ended.

Hey, JumpStart fans! We recently announced that rooms are officially live, and we’re excited! We know that your kids will find all sorts of creative ways to decorate their rooms … and we’d love to see what they come up with. In fact, we’re going to give 300 coins to the owner of the best room we see. Follow the directions below to show off your kids’ rooms, and then stay tuned to our Facebook fan page and the JumpStart Blog. We’ll be choosing a winner on March 15th.

First, have your child enter the virtual world at JumpStart.com and run over to his or her room. Make sure the room looks just the way he or she wants it, and have the Jumpee stand so that you have a good view of the room.

If you’re using a PC, you can press the “Print Screen” button to capture an image of the entire desktop and send it to your clipboard. To do the same on a Mac, press Command-Control-Shift-3. If you press Command-Control-3 on a Mac, the same image will be automatically saved on your desktop as a PNG file.

Open an image editing program like Microsoft Paint. Paste the image into the program.

In Paint, choose Edit > Paste.

Once you have the image pasted into the program, choose “Save As” to save the image to your computer.

Choose File > Save As... to save the file.

Make sure to save the file in a location where you’ll be able to find it easily. Facebook supports a fairly wide variety of file formats, but JPEG (.jpg) is a safe bet.

Now you’re ready to upload the photo to JumpStart’s Facebook fan page! First, navigate to the fan page. At the top of the screen just underneath the text entry box, there is an icon with a photo on it. Click on this icon.

Click on the photo icon to get started.

Next, Facebook will give you the opportunity to choose whether you want to upload a photo from your drive or take a photo with a webcam. Choose the first option.

Choose "Upload a photo from your drive."

Find the image file on your computer and upload it. Once you’ve uploaded your photo, simply click “Share” to show it to the JumpStart Team and other JumpStart fans!

As we deliberate, we’d like to get your input about which room is your favorite. Click over to the “Photos” tab to see the screenshots that other JumpStart fans have posted. To show your support for a screenshot, just click the “Like” button underneath it. Your guidance will come in handy as we work to pick out the most magnificent room in JumpStart! Once we have a winner, we’ll announce our pick on Facebook and right here on the JumpStart Blog.

Tell your friends you want to see their rooms!

    @Trecha, we have a deal in my house that all 3 girls only “play”
    after they learn at the Learning Lands; they must spend equal amount of time doing both. Also, I give them more time during the weekend to just play around. Hope this helps.

  4. P.S. A very easy way to take screen shots and edit is by installing FireShot addon to Mozilla Firefox here:
