Learning how to swim is a great skill kids can use year round. We love going to the lake in the summer and visiting our indoor community pool in the winter. If you are going to be around pools and hot tubs, it’s especially important to teach kids how to be safe around water. Sun Tail Mermaid fins are a fun way to encourage kids to learn how to swim and feel comfortable in the water.
My kids love playtime activities that are interactive and creative! Kids can dress up with Wild Things Animal Blankets, play with homemade glitter slime or create art on a chalkboard table to make the shortened fall days a little more interesting.
Keep kids entertained in colder weather with an indoor kids activity! Kids can burn off energy with a portable Lil’ Monkey jungle gym, explore their creativity with arts and crafts, or enjoy imaginative playtime.
This year I wanted to refresh our flowers after a long summer. Our yard was full of summer blooms this year; wild roses, peonies, honeysuckle, lavender, and rhododendrons. After the colorful summer, I felt like our yard needed a little something extra as we entered the cooler fall weather. Quite a few plants and flowers are ideal for planting in the fall to give your home and lawn a little more color.
When leaves start falling outside, it’s fun to turn them into art! This gorgeous leaf painting activity for kids is a fun idea to celebrate fall!

I am a firm believer in hands-on play time and letting kids get dirty. Around here we spend as much time outdoors as possible exploring and imagining. I have a 3 year old boy so we do a lot of playing with dirt, mud, rocks and trucks. My son also loves helping me hands-on in the kitchen, which is a different mind of mess. We love making these healthier, easy no-bake cookies that we like to call “Mudpies” for a fun dirt-themed treat that is refined sugar-free and dairy-free!
