Bilingual is Better

Multicultural Kid Blogs Pinterest Scavenger HuntI’m very excited to see that the community of multicultural parenting blogs has been growing so much over the last few years.

Maybe some of you have already been following the World Citizen Wednesday feature found in many blogs, like our contributor Becky’s Kid World Citizen, that is part of a fabulous new Multicultural Kid Blogs group we’ve just joined.

The Multicultural Kid Blogs have slowly been building their presence on the web — first with a Facebook page, then a subscription to all of the member blogs Facebook pages, and now finally their very own Twitter and Pinterest accounts.

And now, we (including SpanglishBaby as new members) are officially launching the Multicultural Kid Blogs website, where you can discover member blogs, learn about our blogging carnivals, find great products and books, and more!

To help introduce you to the wonderful blogs that make up this group, we have created a Pinterest Scavenger Hunt, which will run from July 15 to July 28. You will have until July 31 to submit your entry, and the drawing will take place on August 1. You could win one of four fabulous prize packages!

Here’s how it works:

Create a Pinterest board specifically for the contest and name the board “Multicultural Kid Blogs Pinterest Scavenger Hunt.”

Each day a new clue (or two!) will be revealed. Follow the clue to the blog of the day and pin the post described in the clue. (Any image from the post is fine).

In the Rafflecopter below, enter the link to the Pinterest board you created for this contest. The Rafflecopter will also have lots of other ways to earn extra entries. The only required entry is the link to your Pinterest board.

Please note: You can enter the Rafflecopter at any point during the contest. Obviously your board won’t be complete until the end of the contest, but you can enter the link in the Rafflecopter before then. If your name is drawn at the end of the contest, we will check your board at that time.

The final clue will be given July 28. Participants will have until midnight Pacific time on July 31 to finalize their boards. The drawing will take place on August 1.

Winners must have pinned all of the correct posts to their board. Winners will be notified via email and must respond within 48 hours or another name will be drawn.

Good luck, explorers!
