Giveaway: Binocular Adventure Package from Imagine Childhood

This giveaway is now closed. Stay tuned to find out the winner this weekend!

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 15 giveaways across the entire network this week—all great gift ideas, perfect for the holidays.

Today I’m excited to be giving away a prize that my kids will love receiving this Christmas, and I think yours will as well.

It’s this binocular adventure package from Imagine Childhood–full of goodies to help your children both play and learn as they go about their outdoor adventures.

This gift comes ready to stimulate hours of creative, educational exploration.

Learn more about what is included in this prize and how to win.

This package includes the following 12 items:

With this kit your child will have all he needs to head outside and begin exploring. My family and I recently moved to a home on two woodsy acres, complete with plenty of new birds to observe in the trees on our property. So I was excited to try out the binoculars in this package.

Made by the company Konus, this pair is compact for little hands and the rubber covering makes it easy to hold while also adding extra durability. It’s simple to focus and the magnification brings the trees and their inhabitants up close and personal. (I think we might also take them when we see the Nutcracker in a few weeks!) This is a solid starting pair of binoculars for a beginning observer.

Being a fan of bags, I especially love the backpack that is a part of this prize. It is clearly made to last and extremely sturdy. Crafted from organic cotton, it also features non-toxic dyes, sustainable wood and recycled plastic components, and adjustable shoulder straps. It’s also PVC free.

The nature cards included in this set have already been put to good use in our home. They have been helping us identify the flora and fauna in our local area. I’ve personally learned so much from having these on hand. We also like the poster versions.

The founders of Imagine Childhood believe that “children should experience the world through their own eyes, ears, fingers, and toes. That direct interaction with nature is the best way to learn about the world, and that open-ended imaginative play is the best way to learn about what it could be.” The quality toys that fill their store reflect this belief in the beauty of childhood.

I often visit Imagine Childhood when birthday or holiday time rolls around and I need a gift for one of my little people. Check out their online holiday gift guide to gather more ideas for the children in your life.
