Sneak Peek!

We are working on something really fun here at AVRL. They are called "Be Fit" Physical Literacy Kits. We all know how important it is for kids to have access to books and language at an early age, but sometimes we might forget how important it is for kids to be active, even as toddlers or infants.

To make this easier  for families, we've partnered with Sport Nova Scotia and Valley Active Living to create kits that you can take home and play with! Each kit contains fun items such as balls, juggling scarves, activity dice, frisbees, skipping ropes, and more! There's an activity booklet included in each one that guides you in ways to use the items included. We've even included 4 picture books that will get you moving as you read together.

The kits will be ready soon, so keep an eye out! We've already been playing ball in the office, so we know you are going to have fun with these. Our first official launch is in Berwick on Saturday, April 4. We'll have the kits there for you to test out, show you some games to play with them, and we'll also have healthy snacks and door prizes, so come see us then! More launches will be scheduled -- one at our Windsor branch and one in Annapolis County, so everyone has a chance to come play!

Once they are ready, you'll be able to check one out for 3 weeks, and use it at home, for parties, or take it camping. Wouldn't it be fun to have an Active Play birthday party? Preschools and daycares could borrow them for a Fun Day. The possibilities are endless! And there's no charge to borrow one.  We'll have them ready by April 4, so start thinking of how you will use a Be Fit Kit!
