It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of convenience + all things kid friendly. And if it comes in a pretty little box delivered right to my doorstep? Yep, sign me up.
I was lucky enough to partner with an awesome local Michigan business called Growing Roots. They’re a family oriented subscription box service that delivers a box of goods to your doorstep that have a fun theme each month. This month’s theme was Summer Lovin’. And it sure did deliver.
We tested out the Summertime Activities and Ideas by The Idea Box Kids this week and the kids loved it. I haven’t yet reached the point where my kids proclaim boredom (they’re still keeping me company in the bathroom when I go #2…), but I know those days are looming in the not so distant future. But for all those parents that have kids at home the next few months this Idea Box is amazing. It screams old school fun with ideas like “build a fort” and “make a rootbeer float” or “play with sidewalk chalk”. As you can see the boys had a blast. And we only got through a couple of the idea coins!
If you can remember from our summer bucket list, we planned to spend a lot of time outside in the sun. After 4 days in the sun last weekend, this awesome “Be Cool” cooling aloe vera spray came in handy. No one was quite sunburnt thanks to lots of sunblock (except for maybe mom….), but this surely helped cool off our skin after a few days at the pool. Looking forward to have this on hand the rest of the summer!
And while I’m talking about sunblock… I know as a mom I am ALWAYS on the lookout for a better sunblock for the boys. We have recently tried the Babyganics on the boys, but will be trying out the Bad Axe Soap Company’s Natural Sunscreen this weekend (if the rain holds off!).
And when you need to fix a toddler tantrum….
Our project next week will be to get these seeds in the ground! We can always use some extra color in our little city yard.
What’s summer without popsicles every night after dinner? The boys are actually huge fans of mermaids (because who isn’t??!), so this adorable mermaid tail popsicle holder was a hit. Now we just need another one!
And a popsicle cheers to the best summer yet!
Thank you to Growing Roots for this awesome June box. Next up? July’s Starry Night. We can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
