SNOWKIDZ SAFTEY ANIMATIONS
The SnowKidz Safety animation videos are designed to teach kids snow sports safety in a fun manner. The animation videos can be used in various areas and best of all they are available in over 20 languages.
The clips are free to download and can be found in the SnowKidz Digital Toolkit as well as on the SnowKidz YouTube channel (links below):
SnowKidz Digitial Toolkit: www.snowkidz.com/Organise_an_Event/Digital_Toolkit
SnowKidz YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/user/officialfissnowkidz
Pro tip: Integrate the animations on screens throughout ski resorts e.g. at the lift station. This will provide some good entertainment for kids while they wait for the lift.
