Win a play kit from Let’s Play!

[The following post was written as part of my paid ambassadorship with Let’s Play, a part of the Dr Pepper/Snapple Group]

A little while back I asked you to take the Let’s Play Pledge. Did you do it? Thank you! Or if you didn’t, why not? It’s really easy – you just pledge that you’ll spend an extra  hour a week playing with your kids. Simple, right? And think about all of the things that would improve if you played for an extra hour: you all get an extra hour of exercise, you get quality time with your kids, and they might even behave better after letting off some steam.

What have I done with that extra hour since I took the pledge? I’ve been hula-hooping with my daughter. And while she is amazing, I completely stink! Seriously, I used to be good at this! I think that was back when I actually had a waist for the hoop to travel around. But I’ll keep trying.

To help you have some fun with your kids, I’m giving out three Play Kits, packed with fantastic stuff. Each kit has:

  • parachute10’ Play Parachute
  • Sand Bucket
  • Jump Rope
  • Carton of Sidewalk Chalk
  • Let’s Play frisbee
  • Ideas for playing, including apps, resources, and games you can create with chalk

Entering is super easy: all you have to do is take the Let’s Play Pledge, and tell me that you did in the comment section of this post. If you’ve already taken it before now, tell me that!

For a second entry, you can tweet about the contest with a link back to this post. The tweet must contain “@SelfishMom” (but should not start with it). Or, you can just copy and paste this:

    I promise to take the pledge now. We took two trees out of our yard which will certainly make spending one hour or more in our yard a lot more pleasant. Can not wait to have magical memories with the kids now that the lawn will be mulberry free.

    I took the pledge just now. We’re trying to get to the park as a family more often – time for all three of us to play.

    That parachute would freakin rock Jack’s little world.

    This is great! My kids would love this – we have a big yard but they constantly complain that they have nothing to do. (Of course the boredom often leads to very imaginative play.)

    I took the pledge! Life has felt so busy lately. Definitely need to do this. So glad summer is almost here. Lots of extra time.

    Hula hooping is one of my wife’s habit too. What a joy it brings me whenever I see her teaching my daughter on how to execute it. She’s a very wonderful mother and a wife.
