Be Fit Kits

Get moving and get outside this summer with our Be Fit Kits!

We've partnered with Sport Nova Scotia, Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, and the Amherst Lions Club to create kits that you can take home and play with! Each kit contains fun items such as balls, skipping ropes, rubber chickens, a parachute & more! There's an activity booklet included in each one, as well as 2 picture books that will get you moving as you read together. The kits are designed to increase physical literacy and to make it easy for you to be active.

Each kit may be checked out for 1 week. All you need is your valid CPL library card!
