Things to do this Summer

The summer activities for your family will depend on various things, for instance where you live and the age of your children. However, below is a list of summer activities that will bring the relaxation and entertainment you desire.

Prepare a meal

According to various researches, most families are spending less time together, which highly affects the parents' health and children’s performance at school. Eating together is no longer part of a family routine, and so is preparing healthy meals.

Weight gain has become common among children as parents are always in a hurry when preparing meals and give their children processed foods. Therefore, ensure that you eat together as a family and prepare healthy meals. Check out some healthy grill recipes and other healthy summer dinner ideas for your entire family.

Go for picnic

A family picnic creates a long-lasting memory. But if you are a working parent with a busy schedule, planning for a picnic can be challenging. However, planning a picnic doesn’t have to be an intimidating task. You can host a picnic lunch on your property. Pick a mealtime destination and place a blanket or a patio table in your backyard. Prepare picnic foods like sandwiches, put them in a basket and dine outside.

Camp in

Summer this year is going to be different. And with camps closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, people are looking for various ways to imitate the sense of camping at home. Therefore, instead of letting them miss the fun of camping, why don’t you start a camp in your backyard.

Bike riding

Consider taking your children out for an exciting bike ride. If your kids are small, take them for the bike ride just near your house; however, if they are old enough, pick a bike trail and go biking. Cycling has many benefits; it offers you an excellent way to bond with your kids and is a form of exercise.

There are some things that you can do to make bike rides even more fun and make your kids develop a constructive attitude towards biking. You can

  • Pick a beginner trail

  • Ensure that your kids have helmets on

  • Correct dressing

  • Have safety tools like first aid kits to patch up any scrapes

  • Ensure that your kids are hydrated by keeping water handy. Install bottle cages on your kids' bikes if they don't have one.

Water balloon fight

Nothing says summer like the old-fashioned water balloon fight. Fill small balloons with water, ensure that your kids have their bathing suits on, and take them outside to combat it out and join in the fun.

The Bottom Line

Summer is usually the best time of the year as it allows you to bond with your family and break from the usual routines. Ensure your kids have the best time ever by riding bikes together, going for a picnic, camping in, and grilling this summer. Remember that the age of your kids and the place you live will affect the type of summer activity you can choose.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
