We’re celebrating something special today – World Penguin Day! We’re taking a waddle walk and heading to the zoo to check out some penguins in person.
Have you heard of World Penguin Day? It’s today!
Learn Something New.
As a home schooling family it’s exciting to learn about unique events like World Penguin Day and to take the time to learn what it’s about. Studying penguins is on our agenda for today (and you’ll hear about our trip to the zoo to see the penguins soon!). My toddler will be so excited. She loves penguins.
April 25 is approximately when penguins migrate north. Maybe I’ll take my kids for a waddle walk north and see how long it takes us to go just a few steps!
I also want my kids to understand how important it is to support conservation efforts for majestic animals like penguins, part of God’s beautiful creation.
I’m thankful there are good companies like Stonyfield Yogurt helping these efforts.
Stonyfield YoKids is sponsoring the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Saving Animals from Extinction (SAFE) program; together on a mission to help save endangered species. As part of a year-long effort, Stonyfield will not only be contributing funds to field work but aiming to drive kids and their families to see animals and conservation projects first hand at zoos, aquariums, and on the ground where research is happening.
Get in on the Action!
You can tune in LIVE to a fun event where you get to meet endangered African Penguins at the Mystic Aquarium. Tune in HERE.
This year the African penguin will be featured on Stonyfield YoKids packages in addition to a special offer to get FREE tickets to your local zoo!
If you need another fun activity to help celebrate World Penguin Day with your kids check out these funny videos of kids answering the question, “Can a cow save a penguin?”
Get outside for a waddle walk and do your part to take care of God’s good creation. Show the penguins some love. How will you help support the penguins?
