Back-to-school time is full of anticipation! There’s checking the school supplies off the list, getting new gear like shoes or backpacks, and finding out who your child’s teacher will be. Few moments top the first day of school when it comes to excitement about the upcoming year. There may be tears (from them or from you), but it’s usually a pretty special day marking yet another milestone of growing up.
Pretty soon after kids settle into their new classrooms, the first field trip permission slip comes home. Enter: more excitement! In the past, fall field trips might have taken kids on a learning excursion to the museum or a fall-themed trip to the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch. But as we head into another school year full of unknowns, it’s highly likely many kids will be missing field trips again, at least this fall. No one wants to let down our kids, and that’s why Nature’s Bakery is bringing the field trip experience directly to parents and teachers with their Snack Sized Adventures: Field Trip Edition.

What are Snack-Sized Adventures? Last year around this time, what parent wasn’t Googling some form of kid or toddler activities? In fact, the brand’s nationwide survey found that 72 percent of parents are finding it more difficult to plan kids’ activities since the pandemic hit. So Nature’s Bakery provided a one-stop-hub, sharing over 100 simple and inexpensive tech-free activities that required minimal planning time and got kids and families out exploring the world.
Now during this back-to-school season, Nature’s Bakery is taking Snack Sized Adventures one step further. They’re bringing the fun, wholesome, and educational hands-on field trip experience directly to families’ doorsteps. Snack Sized Adventures: Field Trip Edition gives parents (and teachers!) a chance to put their own spin on a beloved school pastime so our kids don’t have to miss out on it due to new pandemic restrictions.
Enter their Jurassic-themed excursion kits, packed with all the supplies kids need to bring the dinosaur museum to your home or classroom. Families can use this fun activity to educate their children on the different types of dinosaurs and practice their archeological skills with a fossil digging experience.
Each free curated field trip kit includes instructional cards for this field trip-inspired activity designed to deliver a feel-good dose of tech-free fun either at home or in the classroom.

Families will receive a variety of Nature’s Bakery snack bars and materials to learn and create their own world of imagination.
And because any outing with kids requires packing a snack stash, we wanted to share why Nature’s Bakery bars are one of our faves. They have an ingredient list we can feel good about: non-GMO, cholesterol-free, vegan, nut-free, gluten-free, and made with whole grains. They’re hardy enough that they won’t crumble or get crushed easily in backpacks, lunch boxes, stroller baskets, or purses. They also come in two packs for your kids to share—or for them to share with you. Moms need snacks too.
