Springtime weather allows us to do so many outdoor activities with our children. Unfortunately, as all those lovely plants start to bloom, they make our families’ seasonal allergies act up. These allergies can really put a damper on all our great spring family plans. Our children can get grumpy on outings with their watery eyes . We just want to sleep. It feels like the family is forced to stay inside! While we cannot cure our bouts with hay fever, there are some tricks for keeping the family as fresh as possible during pollen season:

Spring is a season of change and new beginnings. It is also the season of spring cleaning. Frankie and crew have noticed that some of their houses have become cluttered and disorganized after the long year, and so have decided to clean things up and redecorate. So why not take advantage of this mass spring cleaning time and clean out and reorganize your own house.
There are plenty of different furniture and decoration options available for you to purchase in the store. You can make your house into a princess’s castle, an Egyptian palace, a sport’s fanatic’s paradise, or do a complete mish-mash of furniture themes for a unique look that is all your own. There’s even spring themed furnishings, wallpaper, and flooring that will allow your Jumpee to immerse themselves in the spring season.
Mixing and matching different styles, as well as placing and organizing furniture pieces in your house, is a great way to show off your unique personality as well as creating a space that looks cool and is completely functional. What tips do you have for cleaning out and redecorating your house?

Is your child looking for new ways to earn more coins on JumpStart? Search no more!
A Game Play Bonus has just been added to JumpStart! Each time your child logs into JumpStart on consecutive days, your child will receive bonus coins as incentives! This rewards your children for coming back multiple days in a row to embark on new learning adventures.
The coin amount increases depending on the amount of consecutive days that your child logs into JumpStart.
Each consecutive day your child logs in, a Daily Bonus Screen will tell them how many coins they have earned just for coming back!
For example, on the first day, your child will be awarded 5 coins. On the second day, it will increase to 10 coins. This is a great way to reward your children for learning and exploring on JumpStart.com! With bonus coins, your kids can buy different items that will make their Jumpee unique!
What do your kids think about this new ‘coin-collecting’ method? Does it persuade them to want to play more?

UPDATE: S.P.L.A.T. wants to thank all Jumpeez who participated in this mission! Because of your kids, all the voltage dragon eggs were rescued from the evil Sorcerer Tangorra and JumpStart was saved! This mission is now over.
S.P.L.A.T. has informed us that Jumpeez everywhere are doing a great job of following clues and locating missing pieces of the map to the rare dragon eggs! Keep up the great work and you just might find the eggs and save JumpStart!
For those of you who haven’t found the first five pieces yet, S.P.L.A.T. has recently received the following intel that may make your quest a little easier:
- Head for the music inside DownTown’s gates. Then take a dirt path to where the next clue awaits!
- A mine full of treasure is the place you want to go. Jump in a cart to find what you want to know!
- Search JumpStart’s fastest land to solve the next clue! When you look up at the cliffs, the map piece will be in view!
- Near each Jumpee’s home lies a garden of flowers. If you don’t go there, Sorcerer Tangorra may just steal your power!
- There’s only one spot where spooks can be guests. Check the haunted porch to discover the rest!
Be on the lookout for a new clue each day! If you’re having trouble finding pieces of the map, talk to your friends to see what they’ve found. Or, post a comment here and see if a fellow Jumpee might be able to help!
Helpful hint: If you’re sure that your child is in the correct location and still cannot locate the map piece, clear out your web browser’s cache. This will solve the problem of the missing map piece!
