Build-a-Bow From Genesis Bows This Holiday Season For The Perfect Gift {& Giveaway!}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Genesis Bows for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hayden is going to turn 7 in just a few weeks! I can’t believe how grown up he is now. I feel like we were just playing with little trains, and dinosaurs. Now he has all sorts of new more grown up interests and hobbies. I was recently able to go to Genesis Bows and build him his own customized bow. I was so excited to surprise him with it!

Genesis Build-a-Bow

I couldn’t wait to introduce Hayden to archery. I knew that he would love it and that archery would teach him so many great skills. Teaching kids the sport of archery gets kids outside while also helping them learn hand-eye coordination and gain confidence.

Genesis Build-a-Bow

Genesis’ patented bow design has helped get millions of kids into the fast-growing sport of archery. They want youth everywhere to feel the thrill and fall in love with archery. Genesis bows are designed with zero let-off to accommodate draw lengths from 15” to 30”, allowing archers of all ages, sizes and athletic abilities to shoot the same bow without adjustment.

I was super impressed with Genesis and their Genesis Build-a-Bow. It was so simple to use and there are so many ways you can customize a bow. First you choose the type of bow you would like and then if you are right or left-handed. Then you can choose the color pretty much of every part of the bow and with so many colors to choose from you can really make a one of a kind bow. I really liked that I could click on a color option and the website would instantly show me what it would look like on a finished bow. I could go back and forth between parts of the bow changing it until I knew it was something Hayden would love. After you have built your bow you can choose to make it a kit! The kit comes with the bow, belt tube quiver, adjustable arm guard and five aluminum arrows. Basically everything you need to practice becoming a master at archery.

Hayden was beyond surprised when I had him open his bow. Luckily it is still really warm where we live so he has been outside practicing like crazy! I love that archery challenges him and he is learning that he can do hard things! He gets better and better each time he practices. He really loves his bow that I built and customized just for him.
