The days are getting shorter and school supplies have started filling up store shelves, which can only mean one thing: summer is coming to an end (noooo!).

Whether you’re bummed out by the bittersweet idea of sending the kids back to school, or you’re reading this from your pantry because you snuck away with your favorite pint for some peace and quiet and are secretly looking forward to school starting back up, we understand!

Between carpooling the kids to and from summer camp, planning the perfect playdate and the pressure of crossing everything off your bucket list before summer ends, keeping everyone entertained can feel like a full-time job in and of itself—especially when it feels like every other word you hear is, “I’m bored.”

Take a deep breath, we’re here with a simple idea for busting boredom that we hope will allow you to spend less time stressing and more time soaking in sweeter memories with your kids before the hustle and bustle of the school year sets in and we all wish it was summer again!

So, turn off the TV, put away the phones and swap an hour of screen time for a fun coloring activity that could win your family a special ice cream delivery. We’re celebrating the end of summer with a special coloring contest for kids ages 12 and under. Continue reading for the scoop on how to enter!


  1. Print out this special coloring page.
  2. Get your kids’ imaginations flowing! Ask them, “if you could build the perfect ice cream sundae, what toppings would you use?” For real though, has anyone else’s kid ever asked for potato chips on their ice cream? Or, tell them to pretend they’re a flavor creator at Hudsonville and have them invent a new flavor for everyone to try. Who knows, maybe one day their ice cream dream will come true!
  3. Break out the crayon box and scoop up some ice cream for inspiration (PS – here’s a coupon you can print off and take to the store).
  4. Show off their masterpiece! Hang it on the fridge, snap a picture and show everyone what a #proudmom you are by sharing it with us on social media. Post it to our Facebook Page or tag us on Instagram (@hudsonville_ic) to make sure you’re officially entered. We’ll be accepting submissions until 11:59 PM EST on August 16, 2019.


Three lucky winners will be selected at random on August 19, each of whom will receive a special package stuffed with all sorts of sweet Hudsonville goodies to share with their families.

Looking for more ways to win? In addition to our coloring contest, we’re also hosting some sweet giveaways all summer long. So, head over to our Facebook Page to check out this week’s prize and enter for your chance to win. Good luck!
