Get Outside With Coleman Canada #Giveaway

For the last couple of years Coleman Canada has really pushed to get people outside and unplugged! I mean we live in such a beautiful country why we don’t want to explore it more floors me. But none the less they are doing their part and I love them a little more because of it. So this year, Coleman Canada declared July 14, 2017 as National Get Outside Day! With Canada turning 150 this year I think it was even more important to dedicate at least one day to exploring this wonderful country and celebrating what it means to be Canadian!

Growing up we were outside from the time we woke up until the street lights go on. Now a days I am lucky to see kids out for a couple hours a day. It truly is sad, but I will admit I am just as guilty for it lately. Life gets crazy and next thing you know it is bedtime. So this summer we planned to do a little more and enjoy it UNPLUGGED!

I love that Coleman Canada remains committed to making Get Outside Day an even greater movement by inspiring Canadians to take the opportunity to spend time outdoors with friends and family.  They wanted to help my kids enjoy the great outdoors so they sent us a couple things to check out. The boys were so excited when I opened the box and they saw the Illumi-Bug Youth Sleeping Bag and Swimaid – Puddle Jumper – Deluxe!


First things first is I loved the pattern on the sleeping bag. It has these cute little firefly’s on it and the best part? They glow in the dark! We let my littlest use it one evening in his room and he kept yelling for me to come check it out. Being a family that camps a lot we know the importance of a good sleeping bag. Coleman Canada is a brand my parents trusted growing up and that has been passed down to me and hopefully my boys also.

The Temperature rating is -1 to 10 °C (30 to 50 °F). This means the cooler nights while out in our tent wont be an issue for the boys as they have the awesome ThermoTech® insulation to keep them warm and comfortable. That means no more being woke up because they are cold!

ComfortSmart™ technology includes:

          Roll Control™ system keeps your bag straight while rolling it up

          Quick Cord™ technology offers no tie patented closure for easy, one-person packing

          Comfort Cuff™ design surrounds your face with softness when you sleep

          ZipPlow™ zipper provides snag free opening and closing

The Interior tuck pocket is a favourite of my youngest. It conveniently stores small items like a flashlight or special toy. Knowing he can find what he needs in the middle of the night without my assistance is always a bonus!

A fun fact? This style of bag is Zip together compatible meaning two like bags zip together to make one double bag. My friend has twins and they would absolutely love this feature!

This sleeping bag is recommended for ages 6 and up and can fit a child up to 5 ft. 5 in. tall. This was great as my boys have been tall for their ages since birth lol so we always had to buy adult bags way before we needed them. Now I know my youngest is covered for many years!

Lastly being able to toss the bag into the washer makes my life a little easier. No more heading to the laundry mat or having it dry cleaned. Just simply toss it in and it is ready to go for next time!

Our family loves swimming as we believe it is an important skill for EVERYONE to know. Nothing is worse then having to worry about your kids around water. My mom still does it even though we are all good swimmers. So making sure my boys have some assistance while they are still learning their water safety skills is important to me. When out Puddle Jumper showed up it sparked so much excitement we headed out for a beach day.

Coleman Canada Puddle Jumper

I loved how easy it was to adjust to get a good fit on my guy. I thought this was great also for when someone shows up and doesn’t have anything to use. Having an extra puddle jumper around helps me rest easy. Offering superior stability & confidence to the youngest swimmers is always a plus. (Please remember that while this device does help your child float and stay above water you are never to leave them unattended in the pool or any other water )

#GETOUTSIDE and enjoy all there is!

This device fits children 30-50 pounds. My guy is 40 pounds and very thin. I was worried it would be to big on him but I was excited it fit him well. I really enjoy that the device had “wings” and also a “belt” that went around the torso. Everything is attached meaning it stays exactly where it needs to be and not ride up. Made from durable PE foam means that my son can enjoy swimming without being restricted in his movement. This product also has Antimicrobial treatment. Meaning that with proper care you will not have to worry about all that grossness. I can not even tell you how many things I have thrown out as they were put away a little damp and grew mold. Knowing there is a little extra help make me a happy mama!

Available at Canadian Tire and Stearns Canada

    We spend tons of time outside fishing, hiking, swimming and jumping on our tramploine. My husband is an outdoorsman so my kids tend to have a natural interest in being outside with him.

    My kids have an old Coleman sleeping bag that has lasted forever. We travel a lot and road trip a lot and the kids both do camp often so sleeping bags are in high demand here.
