KEEN Kids Shoes Spring Giveaway (Contest Closed)

This contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone that left a comment. Congratulations to our winners—Janna Murray and Lindsey Johnson!


Spring has finally arrived!

I want to give Mother Nature a big hug and encourage her to go ahead and break out all of the spring tricks she has up her sleeve. Sunny days? Warm evenings? Morning carpool that doesn’t require a puffy coat?


What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with a giveaway that will get your kiddo outfitted for warmer weather in a pair of KEEN shoes?

My love of KEEN shoes is well documented around here and the lovely folks at KEEN were all too happy to let me share a pair of kids shoes with two lucky winners.

Let’s kick off spring with KEEN’s Recess Revolution. To enter to win a pair of kids KEEN shoes, just a leave a comment below telling me how you’d spend a 10 minute recess outside in the sunshine and fresh air. 

You can even get an extra entry for liking Today’s Mama on Facebook (or if we’re already FB besties). Just leave a comment letting us know you did.

I’ll pick two winners on Tuesday, March 27th. Good luck!

    I would spend a 10 minutes recess outside, just soaking up the sun. I would probably go for a short walk and just enjoy every minute. 🙂

    4 Square! With a big, bouncy, cherry ball :-).

  3. SARA BROWN 03/26/2012 at 10:38 am

    On a walk with the kids. 🙂

    What a great giveaway! Our 10 minute recess outside would include some gardening and hunting for worms…my 4 year old’s newest obsession!

    I love being outside watching my older son blow bubbles for the baby. So great to watch their interaction and love for eachother…..

  10. Kyle Hosmer 03/26/2012 at 10:29 am

    A free 10 minutes outside in the sunshine and fresh air would likely be spent watching my kids ride their bikes up and down our dirt road 🙂

    Having popsicle in the backyard with my kids would be the perfect 10 minute recess.

    I would spend my time just sitting on a blanket and listening to the new sounds of spring – -birds, tree leaves in the wind…

  15. Amy oconnor 03/26/2012 at 10:07 am

    Oh, and I like you.

  17. Kim 03/26/2012 at 10:06 am

    Only 10 minutes? I’d probably go for a quick walk.

  18. Amy oconnor 03/26/2012 at 10:06 am

    We would spend our ten minutes laying on the grass with our eyes closed. Just using our senses to feel, smell and listen to the world around us. Now my 2 year old, not likely to last a full minute but I can dream! 🙂

    Love your site!

    10 minute recess means playing dinosaurs or planes with my little man. I prefer dinosaurs because he gives me great big hugs when his dad yells “roar.”

  21. Michelle 03/26/2012 at 10:06 am

    LOVE Keen shoes! Hope I win for my girlies! I’d spend a 10 minute recess outside taking photos!

    Ten minutes isn’t nearly enough time! But if that’s all I had I’d probably run around the yard with the kids.

  25. Tricia 03/26/2012 at 10:03 am

    I’d spend my 10 minute recess kicking a ball around with my son and teaching him to enjoy lying in the grass and searching for animals in the clouds…if I can get him to slow down that long!

  26. Jodi Luther 03/26/2012 at 10:03 am

    Tag…or a game of hide and seek is how we would spend a 10 minute recess!! 🙂 love spring weather and being outdoors with my children!!

  33. Trish Abbey 03/26/2012 at 9:58 am

  34. Teddi von Pingel 03/26/2012 at 9:57 am

    Recess: 10 minutes working in the garden.

  38. Amanda 03/26/2012 at 9:56 am

    I would spend those 10 minutes playing with my kiddos… sidewalk chalk, bubbles, red rover. Love the outdoors!

  40. Carrie Conley 03/26/2012 at 4:57 am

    Deep breathing and chasing the kids…

  41. janna murray 03/25/2012 at 7:02 pm

    I work at the airport, far away from my darling 4yr old in Park City. If I got a 10 minute recess, I would skip until I couldnt catch my breath, then lay in the green grass( if I could find it) and hope I was looking at the clouds through my little girls eyes.

  42. JaKell 03/25/2012 at 11:59 am

  48. Ann A 03/21/2012 at 9:03 pm

    10 minutes of freedom out of doors. WOW. I would so go for a slow walk, and enjoy the smells and rays of sun.

  49. Laura Shepherd 03/21/2012 at 5:47 pm

  50. Laura Shepherd 03/21/2012 at 5:46 pm
