Fun with Nature Valley!
It’s not a surprise that in this day and age, Canadian kids are spending a lot of time in front of screens–they’re missing out on all the fun and wonder that nature has to offer.
That is why Nature Valley has partnered with the kids’ conservation organization Earth Rangers to encourage kids to swap their screens for nature fun and embark on #NatureMissions. You can find them on their NEW Nature Valley Lunch Box packaging.
While our girls do enjoy screen time, we make it a point to have some outdoor fun. We especially love hikes and Nature Valley’s Nature Missions have been fun!
What is a Nature Mission?
- Each Nature Mission is an easy activity intended to encourage and inspire kids to get outside and rediscover nature.
- Nature Valley hopes to make every recess, every walk out to the backyard, every stroll through the park, every snack on the go an opportunity for kids to learn, experience and discover something about nature.
- There are 30 different missions printed across our Lunchbox wrappers so at any given point, when you open a Nature Valley Lunchbox carton, you’ll get five #NatureMissions.
Tasty and Fun!
My girls absolutely love the granola bars because they are tasty and have big chunks of chocolate or fruit. They especially loved the Double Chocolate and the Very Berry. The Nature Valley Lunch Box granola bars come in three different flavours– Very Berry, Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate. All three are peanut-free!
On each Nature Valley Lunch Box wrappers, you will find 1 of 30 Nature Missions that you can do. It’s simple little tasks like busting a move in the style of your favourite animal, study the clouds and try to predict the weather or play an outdoor game of ‘I Spy.’
You can visit EarthRangers.com/back-to-nature to see all of the nature missions and to get information about nature. You can even accept missions and develop your own and win fun prizes. The Nature Missions are great for kids of all ages and can be done as a family.
