Be Fit Kits

Get moving and get outside 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!


* Can I use the kits outside? Sure! But if they get dirty, we'd appreciate it if you wipe them down and dry them off before putting them back in the kit.

*Can I keep the kit for longer than 1 week? If there are no holds on the kit, you may renew it twice.

*What if I lose or damage a piece of the kit? We'll work with you. Individual pieces may be replaced. You won't be charged for the whole kit if just one piece goes missing.

*What's in the kit?
1 parachute, 3 juggling scarves, 2 stretch chickens, 3 ground markers, 6 bean bags, 2 skipping ropes, 2 foam dice, 1 nerf soccer ball, 2 nerf flying discs, 1 easy-grip balls, 3 shape spots, an activity booklet, and 2 picture books.

*Can I use the kit for my daycare or school event? Of course! Use your Educator Card to place a hold and have the kit sent to the branch nearest you. (Note: loan period for Be Fit Kits is 1 week with 2 renewals for Educator Cards, same as personal cards).
