Tips for a great Summer and a Giveaway!

Thank you Incredibundles and Bookroo for partnering with me on this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own

School is out and our kids are here to stay for the following 2 months.
What does this mean? that for the next 2 months you will become the unpaid Uber driver, a microwave and an entertainer.

Bella is 2 and still doesnt go to school but I can see it in all my friends faces and of course at the splash pad, the center of fun and desperate parents.

So I put together a list of activites that can be done from home:

1. Make Jello and let them use cookie cutters to make fun shapes!

2.  Water coloring on the driveway.

3. Baking, I have to remind myself to not eat it.

4. Chalk coloring on the fence.

5. Sprinkler fun in the backyard.

6. Painting in the bathtub with these!

7. This is one of the best purchases we have made. A bouncy house. This is not ours but is very similar. I do recommend one with shade! Like this one.

8. Playing with Play-doh.

9. Reading books. This summer we received a subscription to bookroo. Bookroo is a monthly subscription box that ships parents two books for your child/ren to enjoy. I actually recorded (on IG stories) Bella opening her first box and she was so happy to get mail to and honestly, as a mom I want Bella to love to read and having the option to get books shipped to our door just makes it that much easier. This, used with #10 on my list can guarantee at least 30 minutes of fun. Use code THECUPCAKEHOME  to get $10 off your order today!

10. Incredibundles. Incredibundles is another subscription box perfect for summer.You get to pick your box, what you want in it and customize it to your needs or simply let them pick for you. #surpriseme
In our case, we picked the items we loved and knew we would use and when the box arrived Bella was in heaven.
And because we loved all of our items and their quality so much we have partnered with Incredibundles to give one lucky winner and $50 credit to use on your purchase. We got all of our items for less than $50 as well.
But before here is a better look at the items we received.

Splash Pad and a Giveaway

Thank you SwimZip for partnering with me on this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own

Have I talked about how hot Texas is enough??

It really is too much to handle and this mama is hates being sticky and sweaty, but my daughter loves being outside, running and well everything a 2 year old loves to do.

 

So I make the effort and stand the horrible humidity and take her to the splash pads and parks. This girl could care less about the heat. Just hand her a bottle of water and she is happy for hours.

I love the way kids live. Nothing bothers them to much to make them stop what they enjoy. I wish we could all have their mentality and their way of life. Yes, even their nap schedule!

 

Once we are there we take out our water, juice and snacks out and we just enjoy!

Aside from the heat, one of my biggest worries is the sun. Cancer is everywhere now days and even though is not something we can stop we do try our best to protect Bella from every day dangers!

We use SPF 75 and recently discovered SwimZip.  They have the cutest styles for both mom and kids.
I talked to Betsy, the founder, for the first time almost a year ago and love her story. I wont spill the beans but I promise she is a great inspiration.

She has offered to give one lucky follower a $30 gift card so you can also purchase one for you or your mini!
