Animal Jam Halloween Fun

Hi Jammers! Kittenstar10 here! Hope you all had a happy Halloween in Animal Jam. Halloween in Jamaa is called Night of The Phantoms. Animal Jam got in the spirit of Halloween by making Jamaa Township filled with jack-o-lanterns, coffins and phantoms! They even added a new temporary game where you protect your candy from the evil phantoms. You are given a torch and it moves wherever you place your mouse. The phantoms avoid the light from the torch and your goal is to get them into a beacon of light, where they will disappear in order to move to the next level.

By playing the games, you earn gems which can be spent in any of the shops. In the clothing shop there are Halloween themed costumes. You can shop for zombie masks, eyeball headbands, skeleton tails and more.

There is a new den for members that looks like a haunted house for any members wanting to throw a Halloween party. Most Halloween items require you to be a member, but there are still some things that non-members can get. Since its November you need to swoop right in to get all the Halloween merchandise before its gone! See you in Jamaa!?

 

Animal Jam is an online game designed for kids sponsored by National Geographic and shows fun facts if you want to know more about animals. The game requires Flash Player so you must use a computer or a special app for iPads.

5 Instagram Tips for Tweens

Tips for Tweens who just got, or already have, an Instagram Account

Instagram is about connecting with friends and having fun! My name is Audrey and I have had Instagram for about two months, so I am still a relatively new user, but I have learned a lot in the time that I’ve had it. If you follow these tips you will be successful and safe on Instagram.

I like to post about cute animals on Instagram.

Instagram Tip #1

My first tip is about consistency. Do not to post only about one thing unless you will only post about that one thing on your account. An example is if you post 20 animal pictures, then lots of flowers, the people who followed you for animal pictures will be disappointed and might unfollow you, which you don’t want. If you post one thing, your followers are expecting just that one thing, but if you post different stuff all the time your followers will expect that.

Instagram Tip #2

My second tip is don’t post too many selfies. I posted one or two selfies and got more followers, but the followers that I got only posted selfies and I don’t want to see a bunch of selfies. Selfies are not “about” anything. So I did not follow them back, which brings us to my next tip.

Instagram Tip #3

You don’t have to follow everyone who follows you. Some people out there will follow you but post stuff that you don’t want to see, so you don’t have to follow them back. Some people will post stuff that you like, though, so if you want, you can follow them. You should only follow people that post stuff that interests you.

Instagram Tip #4

The fourth tip is about how often you should post. You should post about once every week, but you can always post whenever you want. If you post a lot every day it can be annoying if it is all about one thing because some people get notifications that make noise and they might block you.

This is the search screen on Instagram. Use it wisely!

Instagram Tip #5

The fifth and final tip is be careful what keywords you use when you search people or pictures on the search feature because there are some inappropriate people and pictures out there that your parents might not want you to see. The way to avoid seeing that kind of stuff is to be careful how and what you search by using keywords that are only related to what you want to see.

Animal Jam: An Introduction

3 Biltmore Must Sees ( A Tween View)

  1. The Conservatory because of all the beautiful flowers a really great place to have a camera.
  2. Antler Hill village because there is ice cream. I tried the chocolate in a waffle cone and loved it. There is a grassy lawn to play in, and we played with another little boy who was visiting Biltmore.
  3. The gift shops at the main house in the old stables because there is ice cream, a candy store, and a toy store.
Mmmm...chocolate
