Let’s Get Ready for Summer! {GIVEAWAY}

Can you believe another school year has come and gone?! Schools out, so lets get ready for summer! It’s time to take advantage of the summer months and make amazing family memories! We’ve come up with some fun tips to get you going this summer!

Lets Get Ready for Summer

Water Fun

First off let’s talk water fun! If you are planning on taking day trips,  you never know when you’ll find a splash pad! Be ready to let the kids enjoy it by having a bag ready in the back of your vehicle for this exact moment. Here’s what you should have so you’ll be ready for water fun all summer long:

  • Change of clothes for each child (and maybe yourself too!)
  • Towels
  • Sunscreen
  • Wet bag to keep the wet suits afterwards 

Nothing too extensive just the basics for some quick water fun! and once you get home get everything washed up and back in your vehicle for next time!


Outdoor Evening Activities

With the days being longer it’s a great idea to stretch family time into the early evening. Enjoying the outdoors doesn’t mean you have to sweat either! Head to your local park or favorite hiking area and spend some time in the outdoors in the early evening hours before dusk. A little pre-bedtime play is a great way to ensure a great nights’ sleep! Just don’t forget the bug spray!


Summer Bucket List

Make a summer bucket list with your children! What do they want to do or see this summer? Theme parks, zoo’s or outdoor activities! Get your list going and schedule days to visit them! Don’t forget your summer bag for theme parks and zoos in case you get wet! While the outdoor locations are fun, make sure to add museums to your list too! You’ll get a break from the heat and it will also be educational! Here’s a savings tip: Look for museum membership opportunities that offer free reciprocal museum visits to other museums in your area! Learn and save! Win-Win!
