Hopefully this list of summer fun ideas will keep you and your family entertained all summer long. Whether you decide to do one or all of these, keep in mind you’ll want to keep cool. Personally, I like packing up a cooler filled with cold drinks, snacks and sometimes even Popsicle’s.

Popsicles? Yes!

While it may seem like they would melt terribly fast, I’ve found that they stay quite frozen in a cooler with some ice and frozen ice packets. I love talking them with us when we head to the park or somewhere where our kids will want to have a cool and refreshing treat.

The other day we had a bbq at our grandparent’s house and our boys enjoyed popsicles after dinner. In fact, we had the entire family enjoying them (even grandma).

We really love the Star Wars themed Popsicles because they are colored like light sabers. The originals are always great and even the new Popsicle® Fruit Pops are delicious too!

Plus, you can save on Popsicle too! You can buy $15 of Popsicle products in one or multiple transactions at Walmart between 5/15 and 8/15. Then, upload your receipt to select your limited edition Popsicle beach towel. The towels are super cute (like the one’s shown below) and are perfect for taking swimming, to the beach or just taking along so you can clean up sticky hands after they enjoy a Popsicle!

You can shop in-store at Walmart or even order online and use Walmart pick-up to get all your favorite Popsicle products.

I have to know, what is your favorite Popsicle flavor?
