Playground Fun with #SparkParks and Sprite Giveaway

0 Flares Facebook 0 Google+ 0 StumbleUpon 0 Pin It Share 0 Twitter 0 0 Flares ×

Growing up I spent the entire summer at our local playground and swimming pool. Wake up, eat, run out and don’t come home till dark; that was my daily schedule. These days some kids don’t have the opportunity to play at a park let alone swim in a community pool. This year, Sprite will invest $2 million to construct, refurbish and creatively refresh more than 150 neighborhood parks, athletic fields, school playgrounds and basketball courts. Ultimately, the goal is to give young people a chance to be physically active, inspire their imagination and create clean, safe and creative places to play for years to come.

We are lucky to live in a safe, low traffic neighborhood so that the kids can go outside ride bikes, play with chalk, play tag and run in the field. To aid in the crazy fun my kids have Sprite has provided us a really cool prize pack.

  • $25 AMEX GC
  • Sprite Coupon
  • Sprite Spark Park Pen
  • Sprite Spark Parks Backpack
  • Medibuddy First Aid Kit
  • Hand Sanitizer Wipes
  • Green Jumprope
  • Sizzlin’ Cool Sling Racket or Baseball Glove set
  • Crayola 3-D Chalk Set
  • Everything Kids Travel Activity Book
  • Tootle Turtle Bubble Set

sprite playground prize pack

The kids instantly took the 3-D Chalk outside and covered my driveway and themselves in every color under the sun. The Melissa and Doug Toot Turtle Bubble Set was a hit too; the bubbles were often bigger than their heads.

The program to refurbish all of these neighborhood locations is up to you. Submit your school at My Coke Rewards for Schools Program and enter the points codes found on all Sprite and Sprite Zero products. Not yet a My Coke Rewards member? Sign up is free and easy at www.mycokerewards.com.

  61. Pauline Milner says

    My favourite childhood memory is when my Dad used to take me in the meat delivery truck with him. It was before I started school, so I only have a few memory flashes of those times, but I loved going with him. I felt really big riding up front in the big truck. I remember one time a man from one of the stores gave me a peach. I thought that was really cool.

    Thanks for the great giveaway. ~Pauline

  315. A memory that sticks in my head, but maybe isn’t the best, is when my family and I took our one and only family vacation. I was 8 and we took a road trip to Yellowstone. We saw some moose in a field by the road and my dad and I got out to look at them. I was walking thru the grass and saw a big rock I could step up on to see higher. I stepped up, and turns out it was moose poop! A heaping pile! Ruined my new shoes and had to wear grocery bags on my feet all the way to the next gas station! It’s an icky memory, but it was a hilarious moment I’ll never forget!
