Back To School in Arizona means finding ways to keep my kids hydrated throughout the day. As if the Arizona heat weren’t hard enough to deal with, we live in a very rural area and all three of my children have quite lengthy bus rides to school…my oldest a 2 hour ride to his high school! Extended exposure to these temps mean hot kids, and unfortunately, often dehydrated kids. Last year all of the options I tried didn’t work out well, so this year Contigo and I have partnered up to find some great water bottles that easily fit into backpacks to keep my kids happy, healthy, and refreshed all year long.
My youngest child entered kindergarten this year, and I was on a mission to find durable water bottles that won’t leak or spill, and Contigo had the perfect solution. The AUTOSEAL Trekker is perfect for little ones around my daughter’s age that are too big for sippy cups, but don’t quite have the coordination to avoid spills. This bottle features a one-touch AUTOSEAL lid that automatically seals between sips for mess-free drinking. Plus it’s easy for small hands to hold, so it’s perfect for kids to keep on trekkin’. Add in top rack dishwasher safe, and you’ve completely sold this mom on a wonderful water bottle.
When looking for a water bottle for my middle schooler, I had a few things I needed to keep in mind. Durability was a must, as well as a large capacity as he always drinks a lot of water. The AUTOSPOUT Chug seemed like the perfect fit and he absolutely loves it. The autospout is great for busy kids on the go, and has held up to the enormous abuse my son can dole out. With the press of a button, the chug spout opens for convenient on-the-go one-handed drinking. The wide spout helps the water flows quickly into your mouth (perfect for chugging when you need to hydrate in a hurry). When you’re finished drinking, simply press the spout under the protective cover to fully close for help protecting against leaks and germs.
Now the real challenge came along…finding a water bottle for my high schooler that would fit all of his needs. I needed to find a water bottle of an adequate size, while offering durability and the ability to help keep drinks cold. The AUTOSEAL Chill has not only lived up to my expectations, but has completely surpassed them. Keep your cool all day with the spill-proof AUTOSEAL Chill. Water will stay cold up to 28 hours, thanks to Thermalock vacuum insulation. Just press to sip and release to seal automatically, using the spout cover to help protect against dirt and germs when you’re finished hydrating. I was skeptical that this water bottle would keep my son’s water cold all day long, but it absolutely did, and then some! In the morning my son fills up his bottle with ice and water, and by the end of the day he still has ice in his water bottle which was a true shock considering the extreme temps we have throughout the day.
Whether you’re looking for water bottles for young children, older kids, or even just yourself…you can’t go wrong with any of the bottle that Contigo has to offer.
