NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- School will soon be out, which means the perennial parenting challenge of how to solve summer is about to kick in. That's why GoNoodle, a movement and mindfulness platform used in schools by 14 million students, is launching GoNoodle GoSummer. GoNoodle GoSummer is programming specially developed for kids to play at home and includes an all-new "How To" series to keep kids active and learning all summer long. With a bold call-to- "action," GoNoodle will unlock a new GoNoodle Champ if students meet the challenge and achieve "15 Million Minutes of Movement and Mindfulness" this summer. GoNoodle Champs are characters with wildly different personalities that encourage kids to stay active to grow and succeed.
Summertime poses challenges for parents who want to foster physical activity, capture moments of positivity and do what they need to do (like work!). "Like many parents, I think technology can be a great tool for my kids to learn and be entertained. However, it can sometimes be a struggle to manage screen time to ensure my kids get enough active time moving their bodies, playing and interacting in the real world," said KC Estenson, CEO at GoNoodle. "Our GoNoodle GoSummer '15 Million Minutes of Movement and Mindfulness' Challenge will help turn screen time into active time by getting kids moving and mindful while they are out of school for the summer."
GoNoodle launches its "How To" series for home use starting May 27 through August 15, 2019. The videos are two to seven minutes in length and show kids how to do things from card tricks to making slime. Ranging in content and complexity, the videos appeal to kids' varying interests and skills. Whether kids need a daily activity, something to do when the weather is bad, or a way to fill long summer afternoons, GoNoodle GoSummer's "How To" series is sure to keep kids busy and learning new tricks. Everything on GoNoodle is developed by child development and education experts. There aren't any inappropriate ads and the content is designed to engage kids.
