The gracious people at CSN Stores have offer me an Roadmaster 34" Steel Wagon to review. With 200 + stores, CSN carries everything from cookware to sofas
I was pretty excited about this offer because I have a little girl who loves to be outside playing with her two little friends. I remember when I was little I loved my little red wagon and pushing my dolls in it pretending it was the schoolbus. What fun my little girl will have now with this Roadmaster Steel Red Wagon.
But now, it's time for those Summer Fun Things we do in the Summer.
Many parents get apprehensive when summer vacation is coming up. They’ve had bad experiences before with their kids staying home and fighting all day long over the tiniest things. This doesn’t have to be your case. How many times have you listened to those “I’m so bored!” whiny complaints? If you take simple preventative steps you can plan out a fun summer vacation for everyone in your family!
Summer Activities In The Home
Play Games - Children of all ages love to play games. Consider having a family fun night once a week where everyone in the family plays games together. Make an evening of it by planning a special meal, perhaps having pizza delivered. Each week, let one child select the games that you’ll play. They can be board games, card games whichever game they feel like playing. There may be time to play more than one game. If you have enough people in your family, you may want to break into teams and play against each other. Having one parent per team is best. Have fun and enjoy each other.
Lots Of Fun Books - Getting lots of fun books to read together as a family is another idea. Go to a library and borrow lots of interesting books. Have a family reading night. Leave the books in places where the kids can easily access them.
Watching Movies - Watching movies that everyone in the family can enjoy is another fun activity you can do with your children. Have one person make a list of all the videos you would like to watch as a family, and then work your way through the list. Make some popcorn or a movie-themed snack, sit back, and enjoy yourselves.
Painting And Art - Kids are naturally creative. Buy some cool brushes and non toxic paint for them to do their own artwork at home. Big sheets of white paper will stimulate them to paint. They love it! For younger kids you can buy some of play dough sets and have them play with those. Just make sure you always put them in a closed recipient after you are done or else they will dry out.
Go To The Beach Or A Pool- Kids love to go swimming. Plan a day out with them. If you need to work then take your papers with you. Be sure to use clothespins and weights so things don’t fly away. That way you can multitask- watch them while getting things done. Make sure you are in a position where you can see them at all times. You can’t multitask like this though if your kids are very little. If they’re preschoolers or toddlers then you’ll need to give them your full attention when going to the beach or to a pool. One minute of distraction near the pool or beach can be very dangerous.
