We’re always being told that our kids spend too much time in front of a screen–and whether the stereotype about their generation is true or not, what parent wouldn’t want to help their kids get outside and rediscover the joy of nature? Since studies show that a decline in outdoor play for kids correlates with increased anxiety, as well as a decline in empathy and creative thinking, we owe it to our kids to get them out of the living room!
But how do we fit it in with our busy schedules?
Getting outdoors doesn’t have to be intimidating, and we’ve teamed up with Nature Valley to help show our readers that nature is for everyone and can be found everywhere–all the time. All you need to do is open your door! So, we’ll be discussing how to make the most of 100 days of summer with 100 #NatureMoments.
We’re thrilled to talk all about all the ways you and your family can enjoy nature during our #NatureMoments Twitter Party. Join us on Tuesday, June 20 from 8:00 – 9:00 PM ET. We are giving away $200 in prizes. For full contest rules and regulations, click here.
To be eligible for prizes make sure you follow @savvymomdotca and include #NatureMoments in your tweets.
See you on Tuesday, June 20 to find out more about how to get out there this summer!
