Sweepstakes PAJANIMALS 15” Plush & National Family Month

May is such a beautiful month, the weather is perfect to get outdoors and enjoy family activities. Picnics, gardening and flowers, camp outs, fishing, and any thing a family can do together. Make it special and do something as a family. It is National Family Month, Universal Family Week (May 12-18, 2013).
PAJANIMALS CELEBRATE FAMILIES IN MAY, Sprout will also air a special on-air spot for its Kindness Counts campaign featuring the Pajanimals. New Pajanimals Episodes Airing On Sprout, Online Activities In Support Of Universal Family Week And National Family Month.
KidsPeace, a private charity founded in 1882, created National Family Month. This month-long celebration helps raise awareness and highlights the importance of family – kids, mothers, fathers, relatives and caregivers – and encourages supporting one another. National Family Month also provides an opportunity for families to share special time together, to develop or renew relationships, and to remind everyone about the importance of family involvement in raising healthy, confident kids.

 Sprout’s Kindness Counts campaign helps parents teach young children the importance of kindness and encourages children to perform random acts of kindness such as helping, sharing, making a new friend, etc. The Kindness Counts website features a Kindness Counter where families can document these kind acts with the goal of reaching 1 million acts of kindness.
Underscoring the importance of family, the International Society of Friendship and Good Will proclaimed the second full week in May as Universal Family Week (May 12-18, 2013). And of course we celebrate and honor mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers on families and society on Mother’s Day, which falls on Sunday, May 12, this year. 
In celebration of Mother’s Day on May 12, Sprout will air two family-centric Pajanimals episodes on Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12. “Missing Mom and Dad:” At bedtime, Sweet Pea Sue misses Mom and Dad and wishes she could sneak into their bed where it feels so “warm and safe.” The Pajanimals travel to The Night Sky where The Moon comforts her and tells Sweet Pea Sue that her parents are very close by and will always be there (if she needs them). And the episode,“Mom is Amazing!:” Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and the Pajanimals have decided to help Mom with her chores, but they quickly realize that Mom does A LOT of chores for the family. Not sure what to do, the Pajanimals travel to the Night Sky, where The Moon tells them that just recognizing all that Mom does and offering to help her is a great gift not just for Mother’s Day, but any day.
Pajanimals are also offering a free Mother’s Day Coloring Card, which can be downloaded and printed, allowing kids to add their own personal artistic vision to the card (and a photo, too).
