Introducing the SEALKIDS Challenge

SEALKIDS was founded by two children in the Naval Special Warfare community, ages 6 and 9. They proved that you are never too young to make a difference. Right now, we all have the opportunity to do something positive. That’s why we are introducing the SEALKIDS Challenge as an easy way for kids to help other kids!

Our SEALKIDS Challenge bingo card includes a variety of easy activities your child can do at home! Most of these tasks can be done independently, but they may need your help on a few squares. Check off a box each time your child completes one of these tasks. When your child earns a bingo, they will receive a SEALKIDS sticker. When your child fills their entire card, they have completed the SEALKIDS challenge and will receive a SEALKIDS Challenge Coin!
