Fun in the Sun With Yoplait!

The sun is shining here in Indiana and the weather is just about perfect. What a great opportunity to get out there and play with the kids!

I've already been fortunate enough to give away two fantastic Yoplait Get Active Prize Packs. And there's still one more up for grabs! This will be the final Yoplait Prize Pack that I give away, but there's more fun stuff to come...

My kids (and I!) absolutely adore yogurt and I love the convenience and health benefits of it. It appears somewhere on their menu at least five days a week. And that's great news! Because you know what? Research has shown that fewer than half of all kids ages two to 12 get the calcium they need each day. And calcium and Vitamin D are both essential nutrients for building strong bones. Yogurt is a great source of both nutrients!

So I was thrilled to receive a coupon* for a free 6-pack of any of the Yoplait for Kids yogurt products (Go-Gurt, Trix, Yoplait Kids). These yogurts are available in a wide variety of flavors and none of them have any "chunks"- handy, since many kids are opposed to chunks in their yogurt! My kids' latest favorite? Strawberry-Vanilla.

Along with the yogurt coupon, we received a Yoplait Get Active Prize Pack. Perfect for a fun-filled day for active children, it includes:

  • A travel cooler (to take the yogurt on the road!)
  • A jump rope.
  • A water bottle.
  • An outdoor game set that includes a beach ball, paddle ball, Jai-Ali, and a Frisbee
And it's all neatly packaged in a drawstring net bag. Can I tell you how much I appreciate that fact? Much less clutter sitting next to my door!

There's nothing like new outdoor toys to help get you busy and moving out there. It had been awhile since I'd had the opportunity to show off my mad Frisbee skills... not that my skills are all that impressive at this stage of pregnancy but, still, it's fun to get out there!

We've already had a ton of fun enjoying our prize pack and, just this past week, we put our new cooler to use as we headed halfway across the country. How handy!

If you'd like to join me in getting active with our kiddos and you'd like some fun new things to help make it easier, simply leave a comment answering the following question:

Where is your favorite place to "get active" with your kids? Your yard? The park? The beach? A pool? Let me know!

I'm a real water-girl myself but, since I'm awfully land-locked here in Indiana, I enjoy checking out new parks and nature trails too!

This giveaway will remain open until Sunday evening, May 17th. The winner will be announced Monday morning. Good luck!

(*Important: This coupon offer for a free six pack of Yoplait for Kids yogurt is not valid in some states, including Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.)

We love to walk our neighborhood and finish up at the park.

We are lucky enough to live close to the beach, so we go there for walks and bike rides.

Our yard! It's why we have 4 acres. But we also enjoy stopping at different parks when we are out running errands.
