Nestle Family Summer Fun Giveaway!

Can you believe it’s almost halfway through July already?  My family and I have been making the most of our Summer by taking time to just slow down and be together!  A week long trip to Callaway Gardens to connect with each other, ourselves and nature was just what we needed.  Are you having the Best Summer Ever?

Last month, I let you know that six fab bloggers and I came up with some great activities alongside Nestle Family to help you create memorable moments this Summer.  Have you been checking them out?  My challenge for the week:

Water fun is a must during the hot summer months! While not everyone owns a pool, all it takes is a little creativity to cool off in the summer heat. After putting the kids in their bathing suits, connect the garden hose and fill two buckets of water. Add a little soap and some towels and put the kids to work washing the family car! The kids will have a blast playing in the water and Mom gets a clean car to boot?

To accompany the Summer Challenges, Nestle Family is having some fun giveaways including a water slide, swing set, barbeque pit and of course a host of wonderful Nestle products.  And right here on Experimental Mommy,  you can win great prizes, too!


One winner will receive a $25 VISA gift card, ice cream (NESTLÉ DRUMSTICK, EDY’S/DREYER’S) coupons, NESTLÉ Pure Life coupons and summer activities (jump rope, chalk, beach ball, hard and soft flyers, a ball and a Lambada catch ball and mitt set)!

  1. I think families need to go swimming to beat the heat. After swimming, it is always nice to sit in the AC with the lights off and watch a video

  2. We used to have fun with a sprinkler in the back yard. We’d put on our swimsuits and run through while also shooting off our water guns.

  3. We visit the library where there’s air conditioning and free summer programs to beat the heat.

  4. stay cool with the kids inside your local hands on museum, most communities have there own costing around $5 each and they are filled with creative fun things to learn, getting your hands on them for fun and can take upto 3-4 hours to slowly enjoy. Most will stamp ypur hand if you want to leave and then come back for the day. After that family fun has ended go visit your local ice cream shop and buy everyone some ICE CREAM to cool off too! Great giveaway thanks

  5. We like to go to the Children’s Museum as some days it is only $3.00 and that is a bargain for all day! As it is educational,cool and fun!


  6. To beat the summer heat we put our chairs in the shade and have some freezie pops or ice cream cones. If it is really hot out we come inside to the A/C and play games.

  7. I saw an awesome idea in Family Fun magazine (I think that’s where it was…)…a kid “car wash” made of a frame of PVC pipes with holes drilled in them and wet sponges hanging down from the top. Hook up a hose and you’ve got some wet summer fun!

  8. Pull out the hose, set up the water sprinkler and have a water balloon fight.

  10. We go swimming. It is so nice and refreshening. Also, love to head up to the mountains where it is a bit cooler.

  11. Playing in the sprinklers is a fun way to beat the heat together! Then go to a shady spot and eat some fresh watermelon!

  12. My family loves water-play! If we can’t drive to the ocean or a nearby lake or stream, we can always go in the backyard and play with the hose or water balloons. Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. I have to go with the Old Fashion Sprinkler! Evemn with a pool..if I turn on the sprinkler, before long even older kids are gravitated to it!

  14. We love the Slip n Slide—or, when all else fails, wet a large piece of plastic down and have fun!

  15. we spray the kids with water guns as they go down the slide and then they get to spray us when we go down!

  16. My kids love playing with water balloons. We also like to go spend the day at the beach, we bring yard/lawn games and cookout and swim of coarse.

  17. We like to go down to the local ice cream joint and have a sundae while sitting by the river under the trees. Thanks.

  18. We go to the library a lot during the summer. Ours has story time, puppet shows, scavenger hunts etc… for the kids.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. What my family does to stay cool and beat the heat is go swimming, run through the sprinkler, on really hot days stay in the AC and read or watch TV, eat ice cream and popcicles, spray each other with the hose.

  20. When it’s super hot where we live, we go up to the local mountains and visit my parents/daughter’s grandparents! Nice change for all (and cooler for us)

  21. weve been playing with water guns almost every day in the yard, the kids have a lot of fun running around and squirting each other

  22. our yard is VERY shaded so we play outside on the playhouse together and swing for some cool air!!

  23. We love those free, or almost free movies from Regal cinemas ono Tuesday mornings. Nice and cool in the theaters 🙂

  24. There is only one way to really beat the heat here if you are wanting to be outside, and that is playing in the water. Whether you are swimming or playing in the sprinkler.

  25. Spending the day at the beach is a great way to cool off together!

  26. Walk in the mountains. Cool breezes and shady trees. Just wear a hat to avoid ticks/bugs eating your head

  27. My kids enjoy playing in the sprinkler on hot summer days! Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. We fill our largest cooler full of water and some ice and have a water gun fight! Using the cooler means we waste less water too.

  29. Nothing beats the heat like an all-day movie marathon at the local theater, which has to be the coolest indoor space in the entire city! Of course, a trip to the water park would probably be a great option, too. Thanks!

  30. We love going geocaching and always ending up near a lake or stream to cool off. It feels great.
