With everyone having such busy schedules, so many new things to get done, getting outside can be easily pushed aside as bedtimes come earlier and let's face it, there is never enough time in one day. 

When we do have the chance to go out and about, we like to take the kids somewhere they haven't seen before. Being in Ottawa, we have lots of parks and trails to enjoy. Fall time is especially beautiful with the trees changing colour, the kids could find some fun hidden treasures along the way. 

EnviroKidz, who are known for their delicious and nutritious snacks for kids, launched "Ecokeepers", a free nature discovery program for schools to help get kids outside and benefit from lifelong health and social benefits of discovering the wonders of nature.


You can learn more about how your school or camp can get started here!

Envirokidz have two awesome solutions for parents who want to reconnect their kids with nature:


1) Try geocaching* with your kids and use free Ecokeepers nature discovery guides as a way to make it more educational and fun. Make the adventure more fun by bringing healthy snacks like new, yummy EnviroKidz Peanut Free Granola Bars!


2) Ecokeepers is a free program you can bring into your child’s classrooms, schools, afterschool program or club. Learn more about the program by visiting the ecokeepers website or watching the video above.


Ecokeepers is part of EnviroKidz’ vision to foster lifelong learning for kids – EnvrioKidz also has a contest to win $10,000 towards your child’s education.
(Note: All the materials for kids are totally unbranded so it’s all about learning and discovering!)

Envirokidz sent us our very own Ecokeepers kit to get us outside and introduce us to Geocaching. Our kit came with everything we need for our next adventure including log books and an official Geocache, a GPS trackable travelling ladybug, an official Envirokidz lunch kit and of course some nutritious and delicious new EnviroKidz nut free snacks! 



We plan to head out once things calm down around here with back to school and other family obligations. We can't wait to go on our Ecokeepers adventure and hide our travel bug! 

Make sure to follow us on Instagram @AMotherhoodBlog in the coming weeks to check out our Ecokeepers findings! 

Win it!
