Summer Activities for Kids

Raise your hand if you ever been personally victimized by your kids’ summer boredom.

This is the time of year that kids look forward to until they realize how much free time they now have on their hand with school being out

*cue Mom (or Dad) I’m boredddd anthem*

Thankfully there are a variety of kid-friendly summer activities that can help with this. See below for a list of suggestions:

This one is a no brainer- going to the beach! Summer days are perfect for this type of outing and even better it typically drains kid energy ha

Beach Days are the best!

If you dont have a beach nearby or dont have much time then I highly suggest getting a real (or inflatable) pool. Children can have fun in these for hours without you even having to leave the house!

Summer fun for kids (and pets)

If sand is one of the things your little one loves most about the beach but you’d rather stay in, then check out girlzone sand: (https://www.amazon.com/GirlZone-Sand-Kit-Mermaid-Kingdom/dp/B084LMDQ4H/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=girlzone+sand&qid=1626267314&sprefix=girl+zone+sa&sr=8-3) on Amazon for only $24.99. My daughter loves this set and even better it’s so much easier to clean than real sand!

Get outdoors-

Take a walk, head to a park, or even hang out in your yard so not only the kids are getting fresh air but you are as well!

Keep them learning-

Even though school is out it doesn’t mean that learning has stopped. Try taking the kiddies to the library, museums…etc so that their mind is still alert because eventually summer will be over and it’s back to school they go 😉

How to get the best Amazon deals

A lot of people have told me they aren’t able to have much luck on Amazon and wonder how I do. So I wanted to drop a few tips on getting the best deals:

1. Prime with a Partner- if you shop as much as I do then it’s definitely worth having a prime membership for free 2-day shipping and other perks that come along with it. But if there are more than one adult in your household you can share the cost of just ONE membership. There are also great deals for students too!

2. Filter, filter and FILTER- Filtering is one of my best friends on Amazon. I make sure to do so with the items I search for, heavy on the filter from lowest to high prices for me. Also adding ‘sales’ and/or clearance after whatever I’m looking for has been a great way for me to find savings.

3. Check out their online Amazon Warehouse Deals site and Amazon Outlet store for amazing deals also!
