My kids love spending time outside in the sun, every new playground we visit is an adventure, discovering new ways to climb and slide on the equipment. Their time outside makes them feel like great explorers and I love watching their imaginations work.

As a family we love hanging out in Washington Square Park, the park has three different kid play areas, a dog run, bathrooms (key for NYC), tons of live music, people feeding pigeons and a fountain. We go to this park as a family at least once a week sometimes more. When the weather is better we will be going more, because the kids love wading in the fountain to cool off.

The best part is all of these things in Washington Square Park are free, and this applies to many of our favorite local parks, playgrounds, beaches, and recreation centers. These places bring my family so much joy, and now it’s time to give back with Huggies!

So My Strange Family nominates Washington Square Park in NYC for the “Spread the love with Walmart Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Hugs” campaign. You can also participate in the campaign by nominating your own favorite local community project by uploading  an #UltraHug selfie of you and your baby to Twitter or Instagram, and visit the campaign landing page.

Campaign details
From April 20th until June 25th, Huggies will be accepting all selfies of you and your baby with the hashtag #UltraHug, and featuring them in a collage on the campaign landing page. On July 6th, voting will begin to narrow down the 20 finalists to 10 winners who will win a $2,000 grant from Huggies for their nominated community initiative.

How to Enter the #UltraHug Selfie Contest

• First, take a selfie of you and your baby and upload that selfie to Twitter or Instagram. Make sure to use the hashtag #UltraHug
• In your same post, make sure to include a text nomination (approximately 100 – 120 characters) including a name and/or identifying description of a community project in the US, which you would like to nominate. Make sure the community project is something near and dear to your heart.

Thank you to Huggies for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers!
