It’s the summer holidays and, if your house is anything like ours, 14 days in and the words ‘bored’, ‘she pushed me’, ‘he hit me’ and ‘can we have our games back on?’ are resonating through the rafters.
Luckily for us parents (and peanut butter devotees like me), Sun-Pat are running a great competition to win one of 420 sports kits to get your little darlings out into the fresh air and actually exercising. There may even be some relatively harmonious game-playing too.
Sun-Pat has been fuelling families since 1946 with its smooth and crunchy peanut butter varieties. Sun-Pat peanut butter is a natural source of protein, naturally high in fibre and made with 95% peanuts. It’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans and you’ll find recipes specially designed for Sun-Pat’s smooth and crunchy peanut butters on their website. We use ours to make a lovely satay sauce.
10 sports kits will be given away every day and the kit contains an inflatable football, a skipping rope and a cricket set and entry is easy – simply fill in the entry form on the Sun-Pat website:-
or via their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SunPatOfficial/
The competition runs from now until midnight on 4th September and is open to UK mainland residents (English, Scotland and Wales). Note that only one prize will be awarded per household.
You can also download a free’Fuelling Families’ activity guide which contains 42 suggestions for keeping kids entertained – yes even in the rain. (I’m not sure what has happened to the Barbecue Summer we keep being promised. I suspect this is the Met Office’s way of having a little fun with us).
Anyway, you’ll find useful ideas such as fort building, making bird feeders and even holding your own sports day.
Caitlin, Ieuan and I decided to road-test the Sun-Pat Sports Kit prize for you in a Force 10 gale on our local common. Ah – the British Summer. There’s nothing like it, is there?
But we can happily report that the bright red Sun-Pat sports bag is a great way to take your sports day on the road.
We had great success with the football and skipping rope but cricket is not a game designed for gusting wind. Or at least I don’t recall England ever winning The Ashes in a tornado.
This is a really nice kit which is ideal for chucking in the back of the car and driving off with the kids to find some open space.

And don’t forget the Sun-Pat peanut butter and banana sarnies, will you?
