If you just have to get out of the house and you want to brave the scorching summer heat, one of the best ways to stay cool is by getting wet.
Here are some fun water activities to enjoy with your infant, toddler, preschooler, or school age child(ren):
1. Buy a mini plastic pool. Fill it up. Get in your swimsuits and slide right in.
2. If you have grass, turn on the sprinklers and let your kids run around while you watch run through the sprinklers with your kids. [Need inspiration? Check out Nicole rockin' the Slip-n-Slide with her boys].
3. Fill up buckets of water and let your baby splash or have "water wars" with your older kids.
4. Call your local public pool and ask if they have a "family swim" hour. Most likely, the cost of admission will be super cheap and it's a nice way to enjoy an afternoon together.
5. If you have a beach, lake, or other "natural" swim area nearby, pack up and head there for a picnic and an hour or two of fun.
In all of these instances, it's important to protect your little one (and yourself) from the sun...and, of course, if your baby/toddler is in diapers, you'll want to avoid Soggy Diaper Syndrome.
To help with both of the above dilemmas, I'm happy to be giving away a Huggies Little Swimmers "Summer Essentials Kit" that includes:
So, by all means, get out there and have some fun in the water...preferably before 10 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m.
Huggies Little Swimmers can be purchased at quite a few stores across the U.S. (but before you head out to your nearest retailer, print out a coupon...).
WIN IT! One winner will receive a Huggies Little Swimmers "Summer Essentials Kit." To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Sunday, June 22 at midnight (don’t forget to follow the rules). * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.
*UPDATE* The winner is #205 Angela. Congratulations!
Please enter me into the contest. Thanks!
I would like to win these for my God-child. I just bought him a pool floatie for his birthday and he loves water. He will probably spend a lot of time in the pool this year.
We took our 2 year old daughter camping with us for the first time this weekend and she loved going in the pool! We can use everything!
Would be good for the Pools and summer time. Summer's here to stay!
My nephew will need these when he visits my house since we have a pool. Huggies Little Swimmers are a great invention!
Perfect must have item for little ones.
my boyfriend, a single dad, could really use these...fingers crossed he wins.....
Perfect for my grandson.

Yay, Swim diapers. We've got a pool, so these are always welcome. And for visits to the family beach house...
These little swimmers are EXACTLY what we need this summer. My son is only a couple months old but in a few more months we're beach bound! Seeing that its NC, it's hot all the time...so the beach is pretty much a year round activity!
What a great invention, these are a must have at our home.

Once again, you have put together a wonderful pack of prizes...we love these products and your site!
The perfect must have item for little ones for summer fun in the water.
Love the little swimmers diapers. We just went to the lake last week and my 8 mth old daughter was so cute in her little suit and hat.
This is a great prize. There was nothing available like this when my kids were babies, the first time I used any of this stuff was when my 4 year old granddaughter was tinsy. Now she has a baby brother to use them, and I would love to win these for him!
These would be fantastic to use with the grandchild.
these would b great
These are so helful on those humid days!
Hurry up and send it before we make the annual trip out to Grandpaw's lake this summer!!! I promise I will use all of it!!! My little swimmer can't go swimmin' without more Little Swimmers. I like contests with stuff we can really use.
my grandaughter needs some of those
I need to take my son to the pool his year we are going to need these.
Very nice prize
We love L'il Swimmers here. My daughter is already working her way through the first package of the summer.
With all the babies being born around us, I'm sure I'll find someone to use them. Please enter me, thank you
I love Little Swimmers. They are so much better than just a diaper. Can't tell you how many blowouts we had before we gave these a try.
I think that little swimmers are great during the summer for the little ones. These sweeps are great im glad that you guys put them on.
I really want a slip n slide but I highly doubt it would be okay for me to use it since I'm pregnant.
Swim diapers are FANTASTIC!
Lots of fun stuff!
This is an absolutely fabulous product! Please enter me!
LOVE THE PERSON WHO THOUGHT OF THESE THEY ARE SO NICE
I love Huggies swimmers!

Huggies Little Swimmers sure beats a child wearing a diaper in the water, or going without anything. Huggies products are great.
I bought my granddaughter her own pool for our house and we could definitely use these!
I'll be buying these for vacation anyway unless I win!
Boy, do I need to win this! My brother and sis-in-law are bringing my new little niece to visit us here in Florida - it will be her first time coming and we plan to play on the beach a lot, so we could sure put all these things to good use.
This was such an amazing invention for little ones!
Wish the Little Swimmers had been around when my children were small.

Fantastic giveaway as all this is a summer esential. Would use for my grandchildren when they visit from another state.
This would come in handy this summer!
Great prize. A wonderful thing to have in the summer time. It enables little ones to partake in the fun.
The Swimmer diapers are a must-have, and we also have found ourselves going through a lot of sunblock already at this point, and it's not even officially summer yet!
this would help. thanks.
Little Swimmers are a must have around our house. I've used them with my two oldest daughters, and now it's the baby's turn! All of my girls love the water, and being outside. We always do the sunscreen before we even go outside. Keeping them safe is # 1! The UV detectors will be great, especially here in TX. Thanks for the great contest! Happy Summer to All.
Terrific Summer prize! I have three happy water babies.
Little swimmers diapers are the best!! Thanks for the contest!
My 2 year old and I are at the pool nearly everyday. We use these - we love these - would love to have more of these!

great since we are going to Florida July 1 with my daughter, son-in-law and my two grandsons.
This is a great prize pack for any mom. Sine I have no young children, I would be happy to donate it to the Community Survival Center so that a child whose family is in need can enjoy some summertime fun!
Summer and the grandkids. My granddaughter is just the right age for this.
Summertime! Love it!
Great giveaway of summer swim items!
signed in thanx
This would be great for my Great-Grand-daughter.
Jesse thanks you!
With the threat of crypto where I live, these are now a requirement and these swimmers are definately a must!
Our pool has not yet been used this year. The weather has been crappy. We have a new granddaughter and this will be her first year in the pool!
I really could use this right now, we are at the pool at least 3x a week! With these 100 degree temps it's hard to keep the kids entertained in the house all day. Thanks!
kenzkween at hotmail dot com
I LOVE LIL SWIMMERS!!
This would be wonderful for my daughters. Thank you!
I'd love to have any of these items for my redheaded, fair-skinned baby this summer! Thanks for the chance to win them! :)
What an excellent prize!! These are great, I actually need to pick some up so my little guy can go swimming with his brother and sister!! Thanks :)
We are putting our new pool in as we speak. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this!
This would be so great for the grandbabies. You know those little swimmers are so cute and alot better than diapers.
These do work really well. Fortunately we're past the diaper stage but I'd love to win them for my sister. :)
We cool off in our pool or head over to Lake Ontario - 5 minutes away.
Just what my granddaughter needs! Her dad just bought her the cutest little blow-up pool with palm tree & slide. She loves it!
These are wonderful for the water. Doesn't weigh the baby or you down.
I love little swimmers. My daughter used them for awhile, and now my 9 month old is ready.
My granddaughter just turned 10 months old and these would be great for her swim lessons that start next month.
love little swimmers. Used them for my older son and now will use them with my 1 year old.
Hope I win! [email protected]
Our city pools have free swimming lessons this summer. Can't wait to get dd started.
These would be great to win since I buy them all the time!
My daughter could so use this. She is 7 months old and just getting into the pool...could really use these items!
these are great
I would love to win this for my granddaughter to go swimming
Would love to win this for my daughter!
I so need this for my son Zachary!!!
My son is 21 months/34 lbs and now takes like a fish in water. He absolutely loves the little swimmers. They're simple to use and work great!
We could have used the Little Swimmers the other day. We had 3 toddlers in the wading pool with soggy diaper syndrome.
A Little Swimmers supply. . . a must-have for summer-timne with infants and toddlers.
A summer must.
I'd love this for my grandson!
What a nice prize for a little one!
I would love to win this prize.
We go through swim diapers like crazy. Love the Huggies brand.
these come in so handy. It's so much easier to take little ones to the pool.
Yesterday was the first time my little one has been in the baby pool... thank goodness for swim diapers... the water must've really relaxed him.
This is my little nephew's first summer he is old enough to go out and play in the pool. He's going to be soooo excited!
this would be great for my grandson, this is a great giveaway.
could use this for my niece
This is a great kit. We use Little Swimmers pretty much everyday and they are the best!
Great Prize!!! Little Swimmers are a life saver they make going swimming so much fun for everyone.
We are almost out of little swimmers here already! Just about out of sunscreen too, my poor little guy, has my fair skin. Would love to win this kit! Thanks
Would be useful this summer! Not sure if I'd buy them otherwise...
I have been thinking about a water table, but I'm sure my child would get just as wet as when he plays in the kiddie pool!
We have a pool and tons of little brats swimming this summer, so we need those!
I don't know what mommas did before these things came out. I need to stock up before our little girl's first swimming lesson in August!
Oh, man - from this pool owner, and aunt of a 2 year old who loves to come "swim" (float around in a baby-friendly device) I'm blessing the day Huggies came out with Lil Swimmers!
Geat items to have for the summertime!
Thanks for the great giveaway!
We love Little Swimmers! So much better than using a regular diaper while in the pool. They get so disgusting as soon as they hit the water!!
Sure could use these!
This is a great idea. I remember this was the only thing I would always forget when it was time to go to the lake
I have three two year olds and one of the ways we cool off is we wash our two big labs outside together. The dogs don't get very clean, but the toddlers have a blast!
like to win this
Our neighbors just put in a pool (and invited us to come swim whenever) and we are heading to the beach this summer with my husband's family. I stay at home with my two young kids and water play is a great way to distract us from the heat! Thank you!!
love to win
Wow! What a fantastic giveaway! I could really use this for my two boys.
I have a grandbuddy that will be 1 in July...We have started taking him with us to the beach and swimming..this would be so useful and help on the cost of things...
Great and useful giveaway. These little swimmers are so great! Thanks for offering this giveaway.
Can you take a 2 year old anywhere without these this summer? Seems like there's always an opportunity for cooling off in the pool or the sprinkler.
I have a 2-year-old and one due next month. We are setting to make our first trip to the beach soon and could most definitely use these diapers. Thank you for the contest.
WE are taking our little one on her first trip to the beach in the coming weeks. She lives her bath time so I cant wait to get her in the pool. We could certainly use this prize! These diapers are necessary, but expensive! Thanks for the giveaway.
these are a must when you hit the pool with little ones!
Great Prize !
Great giveaway! Thanks!!
What awesome prizes! Count me in, all of them are must haves!
Thanx for the dynamite contest!
I have a precious little blue-eyed redhead who just turned 2. I have never been very outdoorsy, but she LOVES to play outside! I can't resist those hopeful eyes and her little "peas" (please) so we spend as much time outside as her fair skin (slathered up with sunscreen) will allow. We have a baby pool for her at our house, but she is anxiously awaiting our first visit of the summer to my parents' (a state away) to swim in their pool. Little Swimmers worked great last year and she had a lot of fun. I can tell we're going to be using a lot more of them this year, though. Thanks for sharing the coupon!
We just went to the lake on Saturday, the toddler had a great time. He definitely likes the lake a lot better than the pool. Then we did the sprinkler thing on Sunday. He is fascinated by flying water for some reason.
These swim diapers are a huge lifesaver. We're at the pool everyday and it helps a ton! [email protected]
wow i love to try and win this for my little one thay would help me out a lot thanks [email protected]
these are great, they really allow the kids to play freely in water.
Can never have enough swim diapers. We recently rented an apartment to be closer to my husband's job and it has a pool. We are spending a whole lot of time out there.
I took my daughter swimming the this morning, but I'd forgotten to buy more swim diapers, so she had to swim in her regular diaper. Of course the diaper bloated up with as much pool water as it could absorb. By the time we got out of the pool, she could barely walk - bad mommy!
I have 4 grandchildren, two of which are still in diapers. While my daughter is into the washable diapers I think we can use the swim diapers when they come to visit me and my pool! I'd love to win these for her.
Oh, this giveaway is perfect for summer time fun!! Those Swimmers can really $add$ up if you visit the pool, lake, etc. a few times a week. Thanks again!
Little Swimmers is such a great product,
perfect for my great-nephew getting ready to take swimming leasons
I love taking my daughter to the lake and protecting her from the sun is very important to me and the little swimmers are awesome to THANKS :)
We use many packs of Little Swimmers every summer and we LOVE them!
Thanks. Although here in the desert it seems like it has to be outside play after 6pm!
great prize, enter me please
These are the only kind of swim diapers that we use (and trust)! I would love to win a package of them for my 2-year-old to use this summer. :)
This would be great to win. You can never have enough of this kind of stuff for the summer. Thanks!
Great prize pack! I know someone who could definitely use these! MEEE!!!!
Definitely summer essentials! Infact, we're heading out for our frist mommy and me swim class today! I'm so excited! Since I knew I was pregnant with a summer baby, I could hardly wait til he was old enough to splash in the water with me. Now that hes a year old, I know he'll get a kick out of the extra-large 'bath tub'!
This would be great for us. I just bought my grandson a pool!
They didn't have these with my first one, now with baby #2 we can go to the pool and she won't weigh an extra 10 lbs!
i love it
Perfect for my baby.
Swim diapers...too cool!
this would definitely be used. thanks.
Wonderful prize!Gabe could really use this one :).
I can't wait to take my son in the pool for the first time. I am sure he will scream but you have to start somewhere!
I just ran out of Little Swimmers! I would love to win this, as I'm sure we'll be going through package after package of these this summer! Thanks for the opportunity!
My kids love the water. We go through so much sunscreen each summer trying to protect their young skin.
This is the first year that my son has liked going to the pool. He is three and before he would just scream like it was the worst thing you could do to him! I'm so glad that he's over that fear. Now, he's fearless and wants to go to the deep end! Is there a middle ground?!? lol. It would be great to win this package because he's almost out of diapers and we would only need the Little Swimmers for this year! :D I hope get it!
PLEASE PICK ME!
WHAT A GREAT PRIZE!, THANKS
Would love to win this for a co-worker who has the 2 cutest little babies I've ever seen (well, except for mine) who LOVE the water.
My son has gone thru his lil swimmers already.. We need more! he just loves the water!
What a great prize for the summertime!
Would definitely be handy! :)
I could really use this for our beach vacation that we have coming up in September.
great for my grandkids.
Thanks for the contest!
My daughter and family will be visiting us shortly and this prize is just what is needed for the 9 month old.
This would come in very handy this summer!
Would really like to win this for my grandaughter!
I live at the beach, and my grandchild will be visiting regularly. This is a perfect starter kit!
We spend a lot of time in the pool during the summer and my youngest could use these once she decides to actually get in.
This is great with the summer almost here and pool time around the corner.
Could really use these this summer. I took my little one into the nieghbor's pool in a regular disposable and he came out with an extra 15lbs of water hanging from the waist!!
Little swimmers are a great product! Thank you for the contest!!
I'd love to win. We're going on vacation and we need these for the baby.
My grandson loves the water . This would be perfect.
You know... I bought a thing of these on sale for like sixty seven cents this last winter and now I can't find them! LOL. Oh well. I'd love to win though! Free is better than sixty seven cents!
We just started bringing our son to the beach (which is so fab since it's less than 10 minutes from where we live) so we'll have to pick some of these up! : )
Hopefully, I won't be needing swim diapers much longer. I am slowly trying to potty train my youngest son. Keep your fingers crossed.
I NEED these. We recently set up a kiddie pool, and my toddler is having issues with potty training. lol. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
For quite awhile I looked longingly at the connect to the hose thingy that sprays water in the Target $1 bins. I never did get it b/c I was afraid it would function as something that only cost one dollar. Now I'm sad I didn't get it, I mean really it was only $1! I'm such a cheapskate! Now that I know my daughter loves swimming so much I'm thinking of ways to get into a real pool not just our tiny plastic one. We have about 4 swim diapers left so I'll be looking up that coupon and hoping to win!
How great! I'd love to try those for my little one. He's only been in a "pool" once (it was actually a hot tub set to a luke-warm temp!) and absolutely loved it. We put him in a real diaper...and it looked as ridiculous as that picture shows!
We go to public pool and since both my kids are under 4 they get in free. So it's just $2 for me to get in. Can't get any cheaper than that!
We've enjoyed many days already at the pool! Plan to enjoy many more, and would love to win some swimming diapers for my two year old!
ny niece is potty training so these would be awesome for her!!
moore.g at insideconnect.net
We've already taken advantage of the hose and our small splash pool this summer. Unfortunately my daughter came away from the experience with a couple of spider bites. We'll still play outside, but we'll definitely be more careful.
We love Little Swimmers! We took them on vacation with us and we will be using them all summer long in the pool. Great contest! chrisandamyward at comcast dot net
Splish, splash, we want to take a bath
all on a hot summer's day!
Let us play outside, on the slip n' slide,
we'll be dry in our swim diapers all day!
Swim diapers are a great invention! We'll be digging out our kiddie pool soon...
We just used our last swim diaper today. I actually have to go out tomorrow and pick up some more. We have been going in her little pool every chance we get and don't plan on stopping. She enjoys is so much! These would definitely come in handy! :) thanks
Since my son is I belive finally old enough to enjoy some time in the kiddie pool this would be a great essential to his Summer fun! Gabriel loves the water and I'm sure we'd have soo much fun using these products at our summer playdates!
I love these things. I hate it when the regular diaper gets all squishy and mushy and makes the child weigh another ten pounds. Definatly a must have for the pool or when they get wet.
These are definitely on the "to get" list before we go on vacation (unless I win the prize!).
