National Kids to Parks Day Buddy Bison Prize Pack Giveaway

With the trees and flowers in blossom, we now have the perfect weather to get outside and be more active. Do you enjoy taking kids to the neighborhood parks? We are lucky to have three community parks within walking distance, each with a cool playground to keep the kids busy. We also love taking road trips to the closest national parks, where we can get close to nature. To encourage more outdoor play, The National Park Trust (NPT) has designated the Saturday before the official start of summer as the National Kids to Parks Day (KTP). In honor of this year's KTP, which will be held on May 16th, the NPT is offering you the chance to win a fun prize pack featuring their mascot Buddy Bison.

Did you know about these benefits of letting kids to play with and around nature?
  • Kids with ADHD can focus easier and better after playing in a nature area.
  • Children who play regularly in natural environments show more advanced motor fitness, including coordination, balance and agility, and they are sick less often.
  • Nature helps children develop powers of observation and creativity and instills a sense of peace and being at one with the world.
  • Natural environments stimulate social interaction between children
  • Play in outdoor environments stimulates all aspects of children development more readily than indoor environments
  • Early experiences with the natural world have been positively linked with the development of imagination and the sense of wonder

Are you surprised by these facts? I was. It is easy to forget that kids need to have room to roam, places to have different experiences and time to just be free of walls and noise.


The National Park Trust invites you to pledge to take your kids to the park. They have already had 37,000 people pledged on the Kids to Parks Day page to celebrate May 16 in a park. The goal is to get 500,000 sign ups. Take the pledge here and let's help them reach this goal sooner!
