Paint a rock, hide a rock, find a rock! CONTEST EXTENDED – Since the weather is holding and there are more than a dozen contest rocks out there, we’ve extended the deadline to October 26.
Inspired by the popular Kindness Rocks movement, Saskatchewan in motion is launching OUTside Rocks! to get kids and families out having fun. It’s a great way to get moving outside and a distraction from these stressful times.
We’re inviting teachers and community leaders to register to participate. The first 30 groups or classrooms to sign up will receive a free rock-painting starter kit. You can learn more about OUTside Rocks! here. You can also refer to the Saskatchewan in motion website

Saskatchewan in motion and the Partners for Physical Literacy are working with three Prairie Central District communities – Martensville, Outlook, & Wynyard to develop a specific plan for getting kids moving more and increasing physical literacy at home, at school and in the community. Physical literacy is the confidence, competence and motivation to move and one of the keys to a lifelong love of physical activity. You can learn more about physical literacy, why it matters and what you can do, here.
