We are in the midst of the dog days of summer – shuffling back to school preparations with sneaking in every last thing we wanted to check off our summer fun list, and we can all use a break around here! The kids and I took advantage of a rainy morning to do just that – we curled up to a movie to relax our minds and enjoyed a healthy snack to get our nutritious eating back on track in time for the Fall!
I treated the kids to a copy of A Diary of a Wimpy Kid during a recent “Back to School Shopping” trip to Walmart. During the school year, I’m a huge fan of tossing Del Monte Fruit Cups into their lunchboxes because these all natural, perfectly proportioned fruit cups are a great way for me to know I’ve put something healthy into their bodies during their school day. And at just $2.00 for a pack of 4 at Walmart, they are very affordable.
I recently discovered that Del Monte was hosting a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days of Summer contest on their Facebook page where your kids can use their app “Wimp Yourself” to draw their own version of themselves in true “DOAWK” fashion!
The grand prize winner will actually receive a hand-drawn sketch of a family portrait by Jeff Kinney, valued at $250, and they will also award 25 first place winners with free Del Monte Fruit Cups for a year!
Buckaroo took his time testing out Wimp Yourself and came up with these two fabulous Diary of a Wimpy Kid versions of himself…which do YOU like best?
After carefully illustrating himself and entering into the contest, we all sat down with our Del Monte fruit cups and enjoyed some much needed family time. And because we are still in summer mode, a trip to the ice cream store followed! Hey–we tried! We will all slowly return to our healthy back to school selves in about three weeks!
