Summer Fun Gift Guide
Summer is here and we are into one of the hottest, driest July’s we have had here in Missouri for a long time. While we are praying for rain (literally) there isn’t a single spot on the radar that says we have a chance of anything over 10%, it’s going to be a long summer. But with the help of some of my favorite brands, we are bringing in the summer in style. Check out all of the great products below.
Summer means lots of fresh vegetables, chasing around the kids and of course spending lots of time in the car. But my friends at Thirty-One have us covered with their All in One Tote and of course their thermal collections. But this Farm Fun print has to be my favorite for all things summer! Their Deluxe Totes are awesome for organizing reusable shopping bags in the back of our Trailblazer and the cooler bags are perfect for our weekly Farmers Market trips. Deluxe Totes are a must have for all families and are perfect for shopping at bulk stores like Aldi!
Pretty in Pink is the perfect Summer time Desk Accessories. With a Toddy Gear Pocket Toddy you can keep your electronics clean and clear of smudges on the go.

The 5 x7 Smart Cloth in Pretty in Pink stays next to my MacBook Air so I can wipe away the germs of the day, but my favorite is the wedge. The Wedge allows me to watch shows, videos and so much more all while I continue to work. It even holds my iPad mini or my cell phone depending on the day.

Block Island Suncare
For our sunscreen we wanted to develop a natural product that offered great sun protection. We found most products on the market were overdone with chemicals & fragrance and too greasy. That’s why we made our sunscreen non-greasy, lightweight and with no artificial fragrances. It’s also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dyes, silicones, and artificial fragrances. Our sunscreen made The Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) 2018 Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen list for the fourth year in a row.

Summertime Boredom Busters
Summertime is here and with summer often comes boredom for the kids. The kids get bored and parents run out of ideas and ways to keep kids busy. The more active kids are the better they are in the long run, so here are a few ideas to help keep your kids active and entertained all summer long.
Traditional Yard Games
Buy some traditional Yard Games that kids can play when the summertime boredom hits. Great examples include Bocce Ball Games, Croquet Games, Redneck/Hillbilly Golf and my personal favorite Corn Hole Bean Bag Toss. Not only will these games keep the kids busy, but you can spend some great quality time with the kids as well. For as little as $10 you can spend quality time together, get exercise and keep the boredom to a minimum.
Want more exercise?
Because we live in a society of technology users, getting kids more active is sometimes a challenge, but implementing these games kids will get more exercise and have fun as well. Velcro Ball is a great eye/hand coordination game as well as allows you to keep moving as well. Hoppy Balls are great for smaller kids and anyone who weighs under 175 pounds! They are great fun to use to hop around the yard.
Water toys are always a hit, and my personal favorite has always been water balloons. Kids always love sprinklers and you don’t have to water the lawn for a while, so implementing this Summer boredom buster is a win, win! If you are having a themed party pick up this Giant Sprinkler Beach Ball to make your beach party a success!
No matter what you choose to buy kids young and old will have a blast with your new found boredom busters! Happy shopping!
