Does anyone else ever need some fresh inspiration for the holiday gift giving season? We were really excited to find a gift that keeps our kids active and engaged while challenging them and being fun at the same time. I am super excited to be giving one away to one of you guys as well! We sat Everett down for his big surprise last weekend.
He was so excited and intrigued and since it wasn't something he had even asked for it was an extra big surprise.
When Everett realized it was an official "real" bow, he got very excited and we had to read the directions and get it set up immediately! While my husband, Ian, set up the bow and studied the manual, Ev and I headed over to Genesis Archery on YouTube to watch a few videos, learn tips, and discuss safety.
Your children may already be interacting with Genesis Bows at their schools. The Genesis Original is the official bow of the National Archery in the Schools (NASP®), and is used in over 13,000 schools by over 2 million youth across the U.S. annually. Since the organization was founded in 2002, NASP has made the sport or archery fun, engaging and extremely safe and has maintained a zero archery-related injury record.
We headed out to an open space in our neighborhood and got set up. It was awesome to watch these guys learning and having fun with a new activity. Archery offers so many great benefits:
Improves hand eye coordination
Increases focus and patience
Is a social sport people of any age and athletic ability can participate in
Helps youth develop a strong connection with nature
We love spending time outdoors and encourage our kids to play outside all year long. This is a great activity that the whole family can participate in and we can take camping with us in the summers as well. Holden could hardly contain herself waiting for her turn and both the kids had to wrestle the bow out of Ian's hands to get a turn. Ian looked at me and said, "I can't believe how much fun this is!"
We chose Genesis Bows for a few reasons:
Children can't outgrow it because there is no specific draw length
It’s the perfect introduction bow to the sport of archery
With a draw length of 15” to 30”, everyone in the family can use this bow to shoot
Beginner archers won’t develop bad habits caused by an ill-fitting bow
All Genesis bows can be customized using the Genesis Build-a-Bow tool on the Genesis website
The Genesis Original, Mini and Gen-X are available in convenient kits
It is so easy to customize a bow just perfect for your kids this holiday season! Head over to Genesis Build-a-Bow and start choosing styles and colors to best fit your needs and your kids style. Lots of color options and I loved that we could create a "kit" that came with everything we needed to get started in the popular and growing sport of Archery.
