Dive Into Summer (Give Away) with Huggies Little Swimmers & Nestle's Juicy Juice!

School will be out for the summer before you know it and summer fun is just around the corner! Huggies and Juicy Juice know that summer can be a busy time for moms - with trying to find answers to the age old question..."Mom, I'm bored, what can I do?"

No worries, I've found lots of fun things for you to do with your family that won't break the bank! Not only that, I've got a great give away to help you get ready for those fun outings thanks to Walmart, Huggies, and Juicy Juice.

Going to the beach or the pool can be a lot of fun - but being in the sun all day unprepared can be a real drag! That's why we're giving away the essentials for your summer outing! We're giving 2 lucky winners a huge summer bag filled with things like:

  • Huggies Little Swimmers Disposable Swimpants
  • Huggies Little Swimmers Continuous Spray Mist Sunscreen
  • Juicy Juice All Natural 100% Juice
  • Beach Towels
Before you hit that beach, pool, or water park here are a few tips:

Fun in the Sun Tip #1:
Load up the lotion! Always apply sunscreen 15 minutes before heading outdoors. Be sure to reapply after towel drying, swimming or sweating.

Fun in the Sun Tip #2:
Keep your cool. When you’re at the pool, make sure your little ones take frequent shade breaks. Along with sunscreen, tote along an oversized umbrella and plenty of juice to keep them hydrated.

Fun in the Sun Tip #3:
Make the water big fun! Keep the encouragement coming! Praise your little learner for every kick, splash and underwater bubble.

For more great tips, a fun interactive tool to help you pack your beach bag, and links to more contests like this one, visit Walmart.com HERE


Now, on to the contest...

Here's what you need to do to be entered to win:
  1. Leave a comment telling me what fun water things you do with your kids (do you run through the sprinkler, break out the Super Soakers, have any cool water games to share?

You have until May 22 at 11:59 EST to enter! I will choose 2 winners via random.org and post the winners on Saturday May 23rd!

Deb C said...

Two things that we have been known to do -- break out the kiddie pool and put it out back on the deck.

The kids (and grownups too) have been known to hang out in the pool for quite some time.

2nd thing -- my little guy loves the hose. He loves to help water the flowers and he doesn't mind to get wet... I've on occassion have let him go hog wild and spray himself. I have some one of a kind candid photos of him spraying him self in the head... oh to be a kid again!!

We live in the South so we get to start running outside in late April. Today we will break out the kiddie pool and the and the squirt bottles, bubbles and Popsicle's and a bunch more stuff. When I say squirt bottles I mean old cleaned out dish washing liquid bottles. They are the perfect size and its good cheap fun. We will also be working in our garden. Its not a huge garden but I get the biggest kick out of watching our daughter gorge herself on cherry tomatoes. I never knew summer could be so much fun through the eyes of a almost 3year old. Happy summer all.

We do so many things with water it seems! We get out the kiddy pool and play all day, use the hose, hook up a sprinkler, water balloons, slip n' slide, water guns... The list could go on and on. Yea summer!

Our kids just love to run around the yard with their Super Soakers and spray each other. It wears them out every time.

Water tables and a few cups...little ones are facinated by pouring water from one cup to another!

Amy said...

My boys love to play with water balloons. They are relatively cheap too, usually around 99 cents a package. :)

My kids love to turn their slide into a waterslide. They put the hose at the top and a large kiddie pool at the bottom.

My 2 year old loves running through the sprinklers way more than her kiddie pool and she likes going to the grandparents' house for pool fun.

BusyMom said...

One of our favorite activities is to use our slip n slide. We of course also use the sprinkler for good wet fun.

When we the chance, the community pool is another option.

We have a free fountain spray park in our area that we go to and take a picnic lunch and stay and play all day.

We put a wading pool in the yard with lawn chairs, a cooler full of water and juice boxes, and play and talk all afternoon.

We love to go to the beach, but cannot make it every weekend, so we put a few chairs out and watch the boys run in and out of their pool.

we shoot each other with huge water pistols, but one thing that we have done since my son was little was have water balloon fights. My 16yr old and his 7yr old sister love to still soak each other with water balloons once it gets warm outside!

My 21 month old son Jackson loves to play with the water hose at his Nanas. And we like to go to Harvest Park in our neighborhood and they have a water area for kids to play in.

My son loves to help me water the flowers...and of course play with the water hose! Now that he's older we'll head down to Coolidge Park and play in the fountain in Chattanooga.

Lila said...

We love to set up the kiddie pool and put the slide in it. =) Watering the flowers (and each other=) is also something we all enjoy.

lauramarion said...

My children love the sprinkler or just the water hose!

myamos said...

I have an infanct, so we just sit in the little shooting fountain part at the neighborhood pool and let the water splash us. He loves it!

We love the Slip N Slide around here, until my husband thinks its neat to add veggie oil so no one can stand up on it lol! hawkgirl_16 {at} hotmail {dot} com

Our kids love to "help" wash the cars by being squirted with the hose. Sometimes we turn the sprinklers on and let them run through the yard. They have a blast, and the grass gets watered.

Merideth said...

My son loves to be outside. He is almost 1. We got him a little pool to try out this summer.

penguin28 said...

My favorite water thing to do with the kids is to make a mud puddle and then we all get to play in it- fun! Then we get clean under the garden hose.

My son is only 15 months so I just got him a little inflatable pool I put in the backyard. Hopefully we can go to the Wisconsin Dells this summer. That will be fun.

We love to bring out the slip-n-slide for our backyard and put it up on the hill and soap it down so my boys and go really fast into the little pool. They have such a blast with it. We also love to pack up and go to the beach and build sandcastles, find sea shells (that's the best part)to collect in our buckets, splash in the waves and take lots of pictures.

We water the plants and grass in the afternoons, so i let Matt and Dom get their trunks on and get wet. The grass gets the water it needs and they get to have fun with the sprinklers.

stephanie said...

we head over to my inlaws and their in ground pool.

Carlisle Family said...

We set up an outside fun day! Slip n slides, bubble machine, kiddie pool, water guns, and the sno cone machine. By the time they are done, we are all ready for bed!

we use the inground pool across the way, or we travel to the beach, only 20 mins away. It's really important to get all the fresh salt air and the ocean is beautiful. They love the water! We use the time to play together as a family, for health reasons by swimming in the salt water, or walking the beach which is great for them. we use the time for discovery and exploration and excercise! AND FUN!

My kiddos love running through the sprinkler and water balloon fights. When they were younger we had a water play table that they loved to float boats and things in, turn the water wheel, etc. I am looking forward to sharing it with my nieces and nephews this year!
