CWIST – Kids’ Challenges with a Twist and Learning to be Generous (#sponsored #MC)



Have you heard of ?  I had no idea they existed until recently.  CWIST (kids’ challenges with a twist) is a parent-educator collaboration that provides an interactive library of educational, community service and outdoor challenges that help kids make a healthy connection between the things they want and the effort it takes to get them.

I’m always looking for ways to educate the kids on how they can ‘earn’ the things they want, and especially on giving, particularly this time of year.  This  CWIST also has a Kids CWIST For Kids program which is what really hooked me on CWIST.  

Kids can do CWISTs and instead of earning and rewards for themselves, they earn wishes for .  CWIST is donating up to $20,000 worth of toys and wishes for children in need.


  Nagger had fun picking out which child’s wish she wanted to help grant – of course she picked out someone who was asking for a dinosaur.  


She decided she wanted to help two different kids, so I assigned her a couple of different challenges to complete.  She accepted the challenges readily, and I’m happy to say she completed them today, which means that she was able to grant those two kids’ wishes from the list.  

She wants to pick out a couple more tomorrow – since there’s plenty of time to complete some challenges between now and January 6th, we’ll definitely be doing that.

Once the holidays are over, I think I’ll be taking advantage of CWIST for getting them to complete challenges in order to be ‘rewarded’ with something reasonable on their .  

Of course I won’t be picking the easiest challenges for them to complete – they’ll need to work a little harder for themselves than they have for those in need.  Just sayin’.



About CWIST:

CWIST is a new incentive-based digital platform where parents and educators can share ideas, motivate kids to learn and teach valuable life lessons. With CWIST, parents assign a learning challenge (“a cwist”) that the child will love doing because it’s interactive and it’s fun. There are two types of CWISTs: Ready-made challenges can be drawn from an online library of age-appropriate educational online games, such as a math challenges. Or, parents can create their own challenge for their kids to complete. This might be a chore, such as filling up two bags of from the yard, or learning activities, like completing a reading assignment.

For completing these CWISTs, kids can earn parent-designated rewards such as a bowl of their favorite ice cream, an extra hour of television, or that cell phone upgrade they’ve been yearning for. These CWIST challenges help teach kids the importance of hard work in achieving their goals.

CWIST is donating the first $2,000 of toys earned in the Kids CWIST for Kids Holiday Giving Program!  I encourage you to sign your kids up to the Kids CWIST for kids Holiday Giving  and give it a try! They still have the opportunity to participate in the Kids CWIST for Kids program and earn a toy for a child in need.  The program runs until 1/6/14.  You should definitely check it out!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.
