Fun Giveaway: Huggies and Juicy Juice Prize Pack


If you don’t live in Wisconsin then let me tell you something, winters here are LONG.  Coming from the tropics, for me the winters are almost too long.  But it is around this time, long after the snow has melted and the April showers are beginning to green the grass and bulbs begin to flower, that I begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Even my 4 year old is sensing the improvement in the weather and has already asked to go back to his swimming classes.  This year I am particularly excited because my toddler is old enough to start the classes too.  He is a fun kid and I know he will have a blast in the Mommy and Me swim classes.

Packing for the pool is a bit hectic though.  At least my oldest is now completely potty trained, so I will only have one in swim diapers.  But besides swim suits or swim diapers there are many other things I make sure are alwaysin my pool bag: sunscreen, wipes to clean messes, liquids to keep them hydrated and sunglasses and hat for me.  Huggies and Juicy Juice have created a fun game on the Walmart website to help you pack your pool bag and make sure you don’t forget any of the essentials.


The best part is that Huggies Little Swimmers and Nestle Juicy Juice are giving one bag to giveaway on my blog.  This Prize Pack has an estimated value of $100.  To get an idea of what’s included in this prize pack check out the Dive Into Summer Page.  But with brands like Huggies Little Swimmers and Nestly Juicy Juice  you know you are only the best.

  • Leave me a comment sharing how you keep yourself and your kids cool and protected from the sun in the summer.

This way you can earn up to five entries. Each entry must be made on a separate comment as each comment is considered a single entry. Please remember to leave your name and email address in your entry. I need to have a way to contact the winner. Entries with no contact information will be considered invalid.

At that time I will select one winner at random using The winners will be contacted and will be given 48 hrs to contact me back with their mailing address. If I don’t hear back after that period of time I will select another winner randomly.  U.S. addresses only please.

  • Rebecca

    I always put the waterproof hats on the little ones. Our kids are super light, so they burn fairly easily! Lots of sunscreen is a must!

  • Amaree

    This sounds like a pretty good givaway, especially with the summer heat coming (even if, like you, I love up North and summer comes late and never stays long!) Enter me too please! Sunscreen is used frequently, especially since sunburns this north are common. I also like little hats, and those water mist fans!

  • This is my first summer with a baby, so I plan on getting a baby pool, lobbing on the sunscreen and eating some Rita’s WaterIce. Oh, and the baby can come into the pool too.

  • Lindsey

  • Chrissy

  • Angela

    We do many things to stay cool and safe in the summer. We always use sunscreen (and to the annoyance of my kids, we reapply often). We also love to go to the pool. We also make sure we drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. If we are getting “too hot” and the pool/sprinkler isn’t cutting it for us, we go inside to rest. We don’t stay out (unless in water) when it gets up there temperature wise.

  • kristern

    When it’s really hot, the kids wear their rash guards top – this is the same type shirt that surfers wear.

  • Kara Potts

    I make sure I have hats & sunscreen stashed in the car and stroller and make sure there is always water and juice chilling in the fridge. Soon, I’ll be putting a cooler in the car, so that even when we take short trips, I can throw in some ice packs and cold water to keep us cool and hydrated.

  • Tanya

    I get a blow up pool and fill it in my garage. The kids stay out of the sun and have a blast getting wet. My garage floor stays clean all summer long! As an added treat I let them have freezer pops in the pool. Less mess and my kids think I am a totally cool mom!

  • Jem

    I use lots of sunscreen when we go out. Also, I take my son out for a walk early in the morning or later during the day when the sun’s rays are not at their strongest.

I always slather the kids and myself with sunscreen before we leave home so that they can jump right in the water when we get there. I love summer days at Elkhart!

  • Alan Brown

    I keep my family cool by playing at the parks with big trees that offer a lot of shade. Around here there is easily a 10 degree difference between shaded and unshaded parks. We also love to play in water. We use sprinklers, slip and slides, and pools. City pools around here have awesome kid sections with water slides, showers, and squirty thingies. Though we enjoy the outdoors, the sun is intense, so we wear light colored clothes and use plenty of sunscreen. The most important thing to remember in regards to sunscreen is to apply regularly. Have a great summer everybody!!!!

  • Amtami

  • Erin

    My boys stay cool on hot summer days with juice boxes, sunscreen and floppy hats by the pool or in the sprinkler.

  • Kara

    What a great giveaway. My kids love Juicy Juice and we love to be outside so we have to keep them full of liquid. we are at a camp a lot in the summer near a lake so this package would be great.

  • The sprinkler is always a fun & easy way to stay cool, and I slather the whole family with lots of sunscreen, and stay in shady areas most of the time-thanks!

  • Christina

    We always lather up with sun screen. Water fights are always fun too, to beat the heat.

  • Nicole Stoddard

    We keep cool in the pool with sunscreen and munch on popsicles! I love summer!

  • Erin

    This is a great give-away

    as for keeping cool sometimes that is realy hard living in the Ca. Desert and oue temps getting up into the 100+ range on a regular basis, there are hours in our days when we have to just seek the shelter of a cool house becuase even with high SPF sunscreen burns can still happen. for the hours when the sun is not the most intense we love to play in the pool with tons of sunscreen and also the kids love to go places near by, like the local lakes, Dam or creeks so we not only stock up on sunscreen but also bugspray. and of course they love our summer trips to the beaches that are about 2 hrs away. living in Ca. there are many places to seek summer fun. 🙂

  • Marlena U.

    We do lots of indoor activities on the really hot days…the children’s museum is a great place to hang out and not have to worry about a sun burn. when all else fails…hats, sunglasses and sunscreen for all!

  • We love to hit the water park in the summer. They offer a parent/child swim time at 11:00 each day for the little ones before the big kid crowd hits. I really enjoy having that hour with my kids!

  • Sally

    Lots of sunscreen, swim shirts, and hats protect my kids and me from the sun. We spend much of the summer keeping cool at the pool.

    We use lots of sunscreen, rashguard shirts and caps. We are ready for the pool, we’ve already had our first 100 degree day here in South Texas.

  • We play outside with the sprinkler a lot.

  • In the summer we make sure to wear rashguards (surfer tops) with our suits to block the rays and avoid sunburn. My son looks adorable in his! Just like a lil surfer dude.

  • Sarah

    We use sunscreen, pool and the sprinkler during our summer fun!

  • Sue

    POPSICLES!!! The first sunny day my son starts asking for popsicles. Also my little one loves the kiddie pool, and I set my chair up beside it and dip my feet in.

  • We use lots of sunscreen and take frequent breaks when playing outside.

  • Alyssa L.

    I love the spray on sunscreen for babies, it doesn’t hurt their eyes and its super quick and easy to put on!

  • Heather

    My girls love to put the sprinkler on under the trampoline. So they can jump and splash at the same time!

  • Faythe

    We live in Wis. too… and no air conditioning…
    lite weight clothing is a must, with boys I am lucky to just get shorts on them!
    Their favorite way to cool off, since we have no pool or any near by, is for me to hook up the sprinkler & let them run & jump through it. sunscreen added before hand, but they get their exercise instead of hiding in the house watching tv. And I get splashed myself, and if not run too long it doesn’t waste too much water, as it is located near the flower gardens or where the grass can get a drink.

    I found you through FreeSamplefreak.

  • kellie

    I always slather the sunscreen on me & my daughter before going outside. Also I have her wear a brimmed hat to protect her little face! We cool off by playong in the sprinkler & visiting the pool!

    My daughter will be able to take her darling one year old to the pool this summer. Mommy is a lifeguard and taught swim team so little Miss B has already had lessons and LOVES the water. Mommy will use lots of sunscreen and little dollie will wear a hat lots, because she is so pale.

  • I like the use the continus spray sun block. It is nice and cool and you don’t thave to rub it in.

  • we are staying cool and protected from too much sun the best we can. Living in the south its not always easy to do that. We use organic and natural sunscreens, lathering up a couple times daily, apple cider vinegar to control skin ph, hats, lightweight clothes with either 3/4 sleeves or lightweight blouses of coverups. And ever so importantly, we hydrate! always carrying about bottles of water and juices!

    The summers are hot here in the desert of Eastern Washington so summertime items are a must! A boat, the Columbia River, sunscreen, life jackets, water, and popsicles keeps us cool, safe, and having fun all summer long.

  • I keep sunscreen in every bag and in the car so that I am never without it! We are all so fair and burn so easily that we go through a lot. But that doesn’t stop us from heading to the beach at least twice a week during the summer!

  • Lory

    We wear sunscreen, hats and sunglasses for protect. We take each person’s favorite flavored drink and freeze it an put it in a cooler to go. It helps keep our food cold until lunch as well. Thanks for the opportunity to win this wonderful bag of goodies.

  • We swim, catch frogs and play down by our pond to enjoy the summer weather here in Kewaskum Wisconsin. I use alot of spf 35 or above sunblock to protect me and my children from the suns harmful rays. I recently loss my best girlfriend to skin cancer on Feb 14th 2008. She was only 46 and left behind 3 children, and 4 grandbabies one whom was born after she passed. Staying protected is super critical as they have linked skin cancer with incidents of over exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. I would love to win this gift set so I can help my granddaughter be protected and have some fun.
