Get Your Kids Outdoors With A #NatureValley Giveaway

Kids outside skateboarding in Fernie

Kids have so much access to digital entertainment and media these days that they’re getting less and less time outdoors. When my kids spend time outside playing and having fun, they are so much happier than being cooped up inside all day – and that makes me happy!

Outside physical activity does such a wonder for kids both mentally and physically, and it helps get their energy out in fun and positive ways. We’re always motivating our kids to get outside, play in the woods, get on their bikes, skateboards, scooters, and anything else that moves, and have fun being outdoors in nature.

Did you know that over 50% of Canadians feel like they don’t get as much outdoor time as their parents did? Canadians say that barriers like the weather, organized indoor activities, and too much screen time is causing their families to stay indoors.

Nature can bring us together, calm, energize, invigorate, and uplift us like nothing else can, no matter if you’re a child or an adult. Check out this TEDx Talk with Ben Klasky, CEO of IslandWood, a 255-acre outdoor learning center, where he proposes a free and natural remedy to the physical problems kids face: the Great Outdoors.

Nature Valley wants to help make enjoying nature easy and accessible so they’ve developed 100 #NatureMoments for 100 Days of Summer. Making simple changes in your family routine can deliver huge benefits – going for a walk, heading to the park, spending a day at the lake, or even playing in your front yard can help your family enjoy nature and reap the physical and mental health benefits!

To help your family get outdoors, Nature Valley wants giveaway a prize pack that includes a pair of binoculars, sandcastle set, bubbles, chalk, inflatable ball, frisbee, a kite, jump rope as well as a variety of Nature Valley products to fuel your nature moments! (Bonus: most Nature Valley products are vegan!)

Enter the giveaway below, open to Canadians only!
