About the Big Toddle for Barnardos
The Big Toddle for Barnardos sponsored by Toddlebox is
a fun half mile sponsored walk for crèche/pre-school going aged children.
Now in its 15th year almost 350,000 children from crèches, Montessori’s, childcare groups, junior schools and families around the country have taken part since the first Big Toddle in 2004. Together they have Toddled over 1.1billion steps (that’s nearly 3 trips to the moon and back!) and raised an incredible €3.7million in support support Barnardos Early Years services – work that focuses on some of the youngest and most vulnerable children we work with ensuring that they get the best start in life.
Once registered to take part we’ll send you a Big
Toddle Pack full of everything you need to organise your own Big Toddle. You’ll receive stickers, hats, make-your-own-masks
and a fun colouring competition for each child in your group. And a handy ‘How To’ guide, posters and more
for the group leader. This year we’re ‘Toddling with Teddy’ asking your little
ones to bring Teddy to join the fun!
‘Toddle Time’ is May & June each year - you choose when and where you and your little ones would like to Toddle during this time. Toddle events usually take place outdoors in play-areas, gardens, as days out at a local parks, beaches, or as nature walks! If insurance or other limitations mean your group can’t go outside, our pack also includes lots of fun ways to take your Toddle indoors.
We have packs available in English and Irish versions, and if you are a Not for Profit group you can keep 25% of your fundraising to support your group.
And there’s even more Toddle fun online – where you can fundraise, share photos from your day, read how you and your little ones are making a big difference and print out even more Toddle activities!
Once you’ve held your Big Toddle and returned your fundraising we’ll send you a
special Big Toddle Certificate for your group.
