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 exciting for her. Complete with the cutest little starfish rice krispie dessert, it was the perfect way to celebrate the last days of summer together.

Looking for a fun way to make serving bottled water extra special at an event or party? Turn those store bought bottled waters into customized bottles that for fit your event’s decor for just a couple dollars. A roll of decorative packaging tape is all you need to transform those boring water bottles to an extraordinary addition to your event! Not only are these great for events, parties, cookouts, birthdays, and graduations but they are great to keep in the fridge for the kids to grab and go. We use them in lunches, for sporting events and more. It’s quick and easy for the kids to keep track of their water bottle at sporting events because they are specially marked and easily identifiable. This takes only moments and takes bottled water to a new, fun level.
