10 Brilliant Summertime Tricks
I have seen these EVERYWHERE & with good reason! Summer is the official season of the water balloon! What a fun way to get a two-for-one bang for your buck this summer. Plus, I know my kids are going to love busting these bad boys!
There IS a reason to keep those old kiddie pools! Who knew? This is perfect for those low key family gatherings. Put this guy on a table, fill it with ice & keep all those apps and salads from getting hot and funky at your next summer backyard barbecue!
I’m 100% doing this next time we go to the beach or camping! Genius. Just genius! No need to wrap a million sandwiches. One & DONE! Pop this in the cooler as you head for the pool or beach. I’m in LOVE with this.
This demo shows us exactly how wrong we’ve been all these years! Why haven’t we cut watermelon like this before? AMAZING! Easy peasy and these slices are the perfect size for kids. It’s like eating a watermelon popsicle!
I don’t know why I haven’t thought of this one before! It makes so much sense. Use those scraps from your favorite summer fruits (citrus & tropical especially!) and get the flavors of the summer simmering. I do this with rosemary and oranges in the fall, why not get your beach vibe on this summer?
These are so CREATIVE & useful! Added bonus: they are super cheap to make! You can put these lovelies all around your patio, or you could even take these little cuties camping. (If you’re feeling ambitious!) They’ll light up your table top at home or in the great outdoors!
Boob Sweat Problems? I’m talking to you, my fellow well endowed mamas. Well, not anymore! Check out these mind blowing bra liners from More of Me to Love on Amazon. I mean. Seriously. Where have these things been all my life?
Road trip to grandma’s? Heading to the beach? If you’ve got kids & electronics, then these multi-device USB car chargers are a MUST! Everyone can get charged up, and no one goes without. Which means, you get some extra bliss. You’re welcome!
I love this idea from Homegrown Traditions! Such a clever way to keep your kids’ little things off the floor of the car & within arm’s reach. Do you want to avoid being asked for something every 5 seconds while you’re on the road? Then, you’ve got to try a bath toy organizer with suction cups! BRILLIANT! Doing this.
We have done this for YEARS! Next time you head to the beach with littles, take a little travel sized container of baby powder with you. Once you hit the boardwalk (or before popping in the car), dust their feet with baby powder! Be liberal with your dusting–really get those toes powdered up! Wipe off with your hand. Voila!
NO MORE SAND! Boom. Mic drop!
