Saturday, May 21, 2016 is Kids to Parks Day! Kids to Parks Day is an initiative to encourage families to get out and get active with the kids!
This year MyActiveChild.com has partnered with the National Park Trust for a giveaway in honor of Kids to Parks Day! Enter at the end of this post to win 2 great books from National Geographic Kids - we were also sent copies of these books for participating in this blogging event (along with a super cute Buddy Bison toy) and my kids have had a great time reading them and looking at the beautiful pictures - an easy way to spark interest in getting outside and exploring our beautiful parks!
Every state park in Virginia is participating with events for the kids to mark the occasion of Kids to Parks Day, including False Cape State Park, and First Landing State Park. Many other locations are also having great outdoor events this weekend!
Make sure to Register for Kids to Parks Day - when you sign up to be counted for this year’s Kids to Parks Day you will be registered to win cool prizes, including a BabyBjörn Baby Carrier so you can enjoy the outdoors with your little one.
