I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Huggies® Brand. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
summer activities for toddlers boys at the zoo

We are smack in the middle of summer. Living in Florida, that usually means we are spending most of our time indoors, or at least we should be! Having a toddler, it is difficult to keep him cooped up all day, everyday. Sometimes I have to suck it up and get outside, even if it is close to 97 degrees outside! I love living in Southwest Florida. There are always tons of places and activities to keep Aidan busy, but we usually stick to about 4 essential summer outings.

4 Summer Outings For Toddlers

  1. Zoo: The zoo is our favorite place to visit. During the summer there is usually a discounted rate for local residents that we always try to take advantage of. Aidan’s latest trip to the zoo was a play-date with his friend Tobin. They had a blast looking at the lions and tigers and enjoyed a ride on the monkey boat, exploring the monkey islands together.
  2. Beach: This is a Southwest Florida staple. Usually, it is way too hot to enjoy a full day at the beach. When we venture out, we pack a cooler with tons of water and snacks and usually call it a day by early afternoon. The beach is perfect for getting toddlers nice and tired for a great afternoon nap!
  3. Park: We are very fortunate to have tons of great parks located all over the county that we live in, and each park has a specialty. The park closest to our house is an aquatic center. We bring Aidan there during the summertime for swimming lessons. Another local park has a wonderful trail with bicycle rentals and a kids splash park.
  4. Museum: Hands on children’s museums are fun for toddlers and their parents! We have a few of these museums in our area and Aidan enjoys spending time at all of them. Summer is a great time to get discounted admission at these museums, as well!

Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers and Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes are exclusive only at your local Costco Warehouse. The diapers are more absorbent than regular Snug & Dry Diapers, providing great leak protection for your baby or toddler. These diapers have worked great for us and the snug fit is great, especially for Aidan’s skinny little legs! I love the Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes, too. They are gentle and hypoallergenic, which is a huge deal considering his super sensitive skin. Since we are actively trying to potty train, it’s nice to have a thick wipe that can take care of a big mess. It’s great to have absorbent diapers and thick wipes with us during any of our summer outings!
