Do you love the zoo? If so, you will want to know about this special event coming up on Saturday (PLUS enter to win FREE tickets to the event!). KIND has partnered with Zulily to bring together two of our favorite things, KIND bars and the Woodland Park Zoo, for a very special event called a kindness safari! The kindness safari will take place this Saturday (May 16th) from 9:30am to 3pm! The kindness safari will be a day of fun at the zoo, with some special activities planned. This sounds #kindawesome to us!
(This was my youngest yesterday. She loves monkeys, and we were able to see so many of the animals up close like this at Woodland Park Zoo yesterday!!!)
I just went to Woodland Park Zoo yesterday with my daughters class, and we enjoyed some amazing animal encounters. There was a family of lions that came right up to the glass (inches between us!), performing apes and much more. The otters where swimming right up to the glass and performing. There was even a very rare sighting of a baby Wallaby eating grass out of its mamma’s pouch. It really was a wonderful day, and I cannot wait to head back to the Woodland Park Zoo for more family fun. The kindness safari will not only offer this kind of fun, but also get the kids thinking about being kind…and we love that!
The only thing that could have made our families visit better would have been KIND Bars. We love them, and my kids definitely got hungry walking throughout the zoo. It is one snack that my entire family enjoys. We each have our own favorite flavors, but they are a huge hit in my household, and perfect for a snack on the go (like days filled with lots of walking).
Add to that the idea of teaching the kids to be kind, and this event is bound to be a great one. You can find the full details, as well as download a zoo coupon here.
Details on the Kindness Safari at the Woodland Park Zoo:
Kids who participate in the kindness safaris will get a lunch tote, that includes a scavenger hunt booklet which features interactive kindness activities inspired by animals (i.e. see a bear; give somebody in your family a bear hug!). It will also include some of the items pictured above (see the photo at top).
In addition, attendees will receive flowers upon leaving to pass on to someone else as well as a take-home kindness kit that comes in a complimentary lunch tote that kids can color on.
The lunch totes are available on a first come first serve basis so be sure to get to the event early! In addition to the lunch tote, there is a kindness tracker for the kids to keep track of all their kindness acts for the week as well as compliment cards the kids are encouraged to hand out to people that make them smile or to thank them for doing a kind act. The kindness safari book is a cute ‘check off’ list that kids are encouraged to do while at the zoo and includes kind acts like:
- Give someone a bear hug
- Draw a picture of themselves ‘monkeying’ around with friends
- Take a family photo
- Thank a zookeeper
