Survive Spring Break with Essentials from SwimWays, Aerobie & COOP!


Thank you to SwimWays, Aerobie & COOP for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Spring Break has officially begun, and after a long and downright cold winter, I have never been more ready to enjoy a bit of sunshine! The weather is warming up just in time for Easter, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Area schools are on spring break, and we're spending the few days before Easter at home, and then headed to the beach for a mini family vacation.


Whether you're traveling or planning to stay close to home over Spring Break, surviving a week with the kids can be a challenge if you plan to just fly by the seat of your pants and wing it. My hubby is working off and on during the kids' break from school, so it's just me and them- and I'm already planning fun activities for us to do at home so we all stay sane and still love each other at the end of the week (little joke there).

We're Making a Splash with Cool Pool Toys from SwimWays!

My first and oldest water baby loves to play in the water! Like his cool Funny Face Swim Goggles (SwimWays, $7.99)?

I have two water babies who love to splash and play. Their dream is to spend all summer in a pool, at the splash pad, or running through a sprinkler in the backyard. My dream is to be able to watch them safely play, without getting wet. Since it's going to be nearly 80 degrees over spring break, we're going to play with the water table in the yard, and can't wait! 

We even enjoy water play indoors on cold days. Filling up the bathroom or kitchen sink with warm water and adding some fun water play toys is always a fun way to play and pass the time.

We've had extra splashy fun with cool new products from SwimWays already this spring! Their Funny Face Swim Goggles are really cool, and with adjustable straps, they're super easy and comfortable for kids to wear. These are perfect for kiddos ages 3+ and are available in three styles.

Diving Toys for Your Little Fishies

SquiDivers by SwimWays are colorful little dive toys for ages 5+

B had a blast with the SquiDivers. He loves swimming at the YMCA, and when he goes for a swim with his grandma, they often practice diving with diving toys. We're excited to add these little guys to our collection of diving toys.They land nose down at the bottom of the pool and their wiggly squiggly ends float in the water, making it easy for kids to find them. They come in sets of three for $9.99.

Super swimmers work on their 'save the world' skills with Avengers Dive Characters from SwimWays.

My little guy is a huge MARVEL Avengers fan, so when he opened up a pack of AVENGERS dive toys, he jumped up and down with excitement. Captain America, Hulk, and Iron Man are among the cool dive toys in this set of three pool toys. 

Avengers Dive Characters are soft and flexible full-figural dive toys that look like kid's favorite characters!
Kids can not only have fun diving to retrieve the characters but can also play with them outside the pool.
Each set includes three different characters, available in the following assortments: Captain America, Black Panther and Hulk Buster or Iron Man, Black Widow and Hulk.
Recommended Age: 5+
MSRP: $9.99
Availability: Target and Amazon

Get Out and Play with Toys from Aerobie & COOP!

We've been having a ball with a fun new Dodgeball game from COOP!

Scatter Dodgeball by COOP is a fun new twist on a classic game. I used to hate playing dodgeball in gym class. The playground balls were way too hard and hurt when they hit bodies. COOP's Scatter Dodgeball is a much safer and friendlier version of the old playground game. It includes a soft dodgeball, soft die, and colored armbands for each player.

At the beginning of each round, players form a circle around the dodgeball while one player rolls the dice. Any player who is wearing a wristband that matches the color face-up on the dice is the thrower and may pick up the dodgeball while the other players scatter.
As the other players scatter, the thrower attempts to hit them with the dodgeball.  Players that get hit must surrender a wristband to the thrower. If the targeted player catches the ball, the thrower must surrender a wristband. 

The first person to collect all the wristbands wins!

Even Baby S loves this fun game! It's perfect for the whole family!

Two to six players can play the game
Each set includes: 1 foam dice, 1 dodgeball (durable, sting proof ball), 12 wristbands (2 of each color) and game instructions
Recommended Age: 5+
$19.99
Availability: Target, Amazon

The Amazing Aerobie Pro Ring is a Family Favorite!

Everyone wants in on some Aerobie Pro Ring action!

My husband was so tickled when he saw the Aerobie Pro Ring on our dining room table. 'No way!' he exclaimed! He had one of those bad boys when he was younger and absolutely loved it. Now he's thrilled to be able to play with it with our son. With just a flick of the wrist, the Aerobie Pro Ring flies through the air at lightning speed! It's easy to throw and flies far! We have to be careful not to throw it into the neighbor's yard!

For exhilarating flying disc games, the thin design of this flying ring allows the disc to travel longer distances and it features soft edges for comfortable catches.
The open center allows each player to personalize their throwing and catching style – catch the edge with your hand or use the center to catch it with your arm or foot.
This flying disc was used to set a Guinness World Record for the farthest throw, an amazing 1,333 feet (406 meters)!
Aerobie Pro Ring measures 13 inches in diameter.
Available in assorted colors and sold individually.
Recommended Age: 12+
MSRP: $9.99
Availability: Dick’s Sporting Goods, REI, Academy, Olympia Sports, Amazon, Big 5, Meijer, Fred Meyer, Hobby Lobby, Scheels, Dunham’s Sports
