The Little Mermaid Movie Date And Starfish Rice Krispie Treats

As the first week of school approaches, I find myself trying to soak in every last moment of summer vacation with the kids.  I fill the last few days of our summer together with fun activities and things that focus on being together as a family.  One of the activities on our summer fun list was for each child to pick a movie to watch and then I would plan a little themed dinner date to go with it.  This was a great way for us to have a quiet little family day and make it extra fun for the kids.  My daughter decided on a Little Mermaid themed movie date and it couldn’t have been more...

Shaving Cream Slide – Summer Fun For Kids

In searching for ways to keep the kids busy during the summer months, whether it be a beautiful sunny day, or a rainy day indoors, I have found that a simple can of shaving cream can evoke all the smiles and laughter you can imagine for kids.  Not sure what it is about the fresh smelling fluffy stuff, but my kids love it and the activities that we do with it on any occasion.  We use it for crafts, painting, and sensory play on rainy days, but on bright sunny days it is a cheap way for the kids to have a really good time!  A can of shaving cream costs a dollar or less, but the smiles it...
