Amazon Summer Kit

Summer is a fun but busy time! Kids want to be doing something all day every day. Sometimes that can seem overwhelming which is why I put together this Amazon summer kit to make it easier on everyone! Just click on the photo and it will take you straight to the product on Amazon.

1. Water balloons – The girls love these! The fact that it fills up so many at once is a lifesaver for me.

2. Chalk paint – A fun version with chalk! and when you run out of the chalk powder just make your own by hammering chalk pieces in a baggie.


3. Extra chalk – Because you will use them up quickly with all the masterpieces your kiddos make!

4. Sprinkler – Staying cool in the summer is one of our top priorities in the South. This one is the best seller!

5. Bug Catcher – The girls refuse to hold bugs but they love looking at them so we take this bug catcher with us in case we come across one.

6. Handheld bubble blower – This one lights up and has a button instead of a trigger they have to hold which is great for little hands.

7. Giant bubbles – The girls are so impressed when I make giant bubbles so this kit is so fun!

8. Extra bubbles – And don’t run out of bubbles!

9. Misting fans – We bought our first misting fans this year and I don’t know why we haven’t bought them before! They are even so nice for parents when you are sitting down for a second to watch your kiddos play.

10. Catch ball paddle set – It can be tricky finding things to play outside that both kids and parents like equally but this is it! It’s playing catch (one of my husband’s favorite things) but a little easier for younger kids to do.

11. T ball set – While I’m on the topic of baseball, this T ball set is by far my favorite. We use ours almost every day (even in the house haha. You can either hit the ball off the top or you can turn it on and have the balls be pitched to you! For mama’s like me,​ you don’t have to worry about the pitch being too fast because it’s slow and upward instead of coming at them.

12. Picnic set – Having picnics are so much fun but our normal picnic baskets to hold all the food are usually too big for kids to carry. So this set makes them feel like they are grown up like us and they can even take themselves on their own picnic inside as well.

13. Mini kids pool – Days you don’t want to pack everything up and go to the pool, it’s nice to have a little one at home. Ours is not this nice and needs to be replaced soon so I think I will be getting this one. It comes in 2 sizes as well so you can pick what works for you.

14. Plastic balls – You will be amazed at how entertaining plastic balls in the pool is for kids.

15. Face painting – This is another new addition to our summer kit this year and we love it! But just a warning they will want to paint your face too!

16. Lemonade Stand – This one is so cool because your kids can earn money while they play! Plus the one I linked can be used for so much more!! I see some cute photos in the works!

17. Sunscreen – I know this isn’t too exciting but TONS of people use the wrong sunscreen that is actually harmful. In order for sunscreen to work it needs to have Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Most don’t have both of those but this one I linked does. 2 bottles should last a long time!

18. Marble Run – When it gets too hot outside a fun activity like this can be played over and over!

19. Tape – I know I know this sounds like a weird one but there are so many ideas for kids to do with tape! Our favorites are making a tape town and roads on the carpet and playing the sticky spider web game.

20. Fort making kit – We love love love our fort making kit. We can make all different sizes and it holds up really well!

And if you don’t have a summer cart yet this is a great one!

That’s all for my Amazon summer kit! I truly hope this was helpful for you! Let me know if there are any other Amazon topics I should post about.

Quick tips to help a home run smoothly!

Having a clean, peaceful, comforting home is very important to me! I want my family to feel safe and cozy in our home and be able to feel God’s love and peace throughout it.

And hopefully some of you can offer tips to me as well!  So here are a couple things I do to run our home smoothly: Continue reading

Brooklyn’s 1 Year Letter

Dear Brooklyn,

You are one!! How in the world did this year fly by so fast?! I feel like it was just the other day we were on our way to the hospital about to have you in the car haha. But I also feel like you’ve always been with us. Our family isn’t complete without you and we all love you so much!  We prayed for you for so long and having you is so special to us! We prayed for a little baby that felt like a baby (because your sissy always felt so grown up to us) and that’s exactly what we got! You are our petite, feisty, silly, independent, dancing, adorable, strong little girl!

Homeschool Plan!

Growing up I wanted to be a mom and a teacher so homeschooling Avery is the best of both worlds! Avery does performing arts preschool 3 days a week for 3 hours each day and then we also do homeschooling throughout the week. It’s nothing major or time consuming it just gives Avery and I a chance to do something just the two of us while she learns more and more! Continue reading
