Leni, August 2015 Metro Parent CoverKid – VIDEO

When’s the last time your kids played with sidewalk chalk and set up the driveway with a retro round of hopscotch? Leni, 10, of Ann Arbor definitely got her fair share of this cool game on the cover of the August 2015 edition of Metro Parent, which celebrates 10 awesome, almost-obsolete activities we think every kid should do this (and every!) summer.

Leni also proved an ace at chalk-on-blacktop penmanship, and it sounds like she’s an equestrian in training, besides. Here, in our behind-the-scenes video, the tween dishes on her baby sister, her horse’s favorite treat – and bids us farewell with big-time flourish.

For a third year, Metro Parent teamed up with MESP (that’s the Michigan Education Savings Plan) to host our CoverKids contest – and invest in local kids’ futures. Think of MESP as a Roth IRA, only for your child’s college. The money you put in it is tax-free, thanks to its federal “529” status. You can start one up with just $25, and contribute as little as $15 per pay period. There’s no limit to how much you add annually, though the max account balance is $235,000. Your kid can ultimately use the cash for tuition, room and board, and other college costs.

Interested in your kid being on the cover of Metro Parent magazine? Check out the Metro Parent CoverKids page. The 2015 contest is done, but you can meet all the winners on our CoverKids Winners 2015 page. And stay tuned for details on our 2016 competition.
