5 Ways to Get the Kids Out of the House This Summer

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bestway for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s not even Summer vacation yet but I can already hear myself telling my daughter and her friends to go play and get off of the computer.

When the weather is nice I feel like kids should be kids and parents need to Get the Kids Out of the House and let them enjoy their childhood like we did!

There are so many video games and videos so easily accessible that kids these days have overstimulated their minds.

They just don’t know how to appreciate nature and fun activities until they are practically begged to take part.

So I compiled a list of 5 ways to Get the Kids Out of the House this Summer and I hope your family enjoys trying them all out! H2OGO__Triple

  1. Get a H2OGO! Water Slide from Toys R’Us, Amazon.com, Target.com and Walmart.com. or first try to enter to win one below and hope that you are as lucky as your kids will feel when this shows up in your yard.
  2. Stock up on Sunblock, trust me they are going to need it, this Summer will be different! Since the H2OGO! Water Slide only takes minutes to set up, you will have plenty of time to apply sunscreen.
  3. Invite a few of the kids friends over because the H2OGO! Water Slide comes in a single, double and triple model which will allow fun for everyone, plus you get to show off how cool of a parent you really are.
  4. Go purchase a few of your favorite books that you have been dying to read again, you are going to have plenty of time to enjoy the Summer now that the kids are occupied and having a blast!
  5. Plan a chore day that will include all of the kids and their friends helping you out with a few chores in exchange for a few hours with the H2OGO! Water Slide. This may seem like a long shot but after you get all of the neighborhood kids addicted to the slide, they will gladly help you with chores in order to get back out there and have some fun!


Be sure to enter below for your chance to win a H2OGO! Water Slide! All you have to do is leave a comment with your fun summer activities!

This Giveaway has ended! Congratulations to our randomly selected winner, LaTanya! Enjoy your water slide this Summer and thanks for entering!
