Happy Monday, friends! The countdown is on until summer vacation begins. How I’ll ever get anything done business-wise is beyond me, as this will be my first summer with two kids. But since babies don’t keep, I hope to worry less about work and care more about having fun in the sun, looking ever so stylish while we’re at it. Charlotte loves being outdoors, and in the summer, it’s all about cool clothes to run and jump in.
Charlotte is already to the age that she gets bored pretty easily, but I’m hoping to have a bucket list full of fun things to do so that we both stay sane. ;) I’m sharing our 50 summertime boredom busters, but first I need to tell you about the perfect summer shoes!
The Perfect Summer Shoes
My little lady just got a pair of the Keen Kids Moxie sandal, a super stylish closed-toe sandal with a secure-fit lace-capture system (aka no shoe laces), and they are the cutest! The colors offered are bright and fun, and these sandals are water-friendly and washable. Say what?! They’re rugged and feminine, and just the perfect sandal for all of our summer adventures. These also make for the perfect shoes for school as well.
This past weekend, we headed to Grandma’s house, whose backyard is a playground. Charlotte put these Keen shoes on all by herself, and wore them everyday to play and and run around in.
Her favorite thing to do right now is to twirl in her dresses, so she definitely looked way too cute in her dress and new shoes.
She even wore them to jump on the trampoline.
I’m so excited to finally have a go-to summer sandal that she can wear at a water park, splash pad, or playground! She absolutely loves these, and I’m so happy to not have to fight her to wear something cute and safe. Because you know how picky four-year-old little people can be. ;)
Summer Boredom Busters
A couple of years ago, I came up with a summer bucket list for toddlers, and we’ll definitely be looking to it for inspiration this summer.
Here a few more things we’ll be adding to our boredom busters list this summer…
- Go to the library.
- Have a Chick-fil-A picnic.
- Check out a summer movie (see my tips for going to the movies with your kiddo).
- Scavenger hunt.
- Play with water balloons.
- Ride bicycles on a new trail.
- Try out paddle boats.
- Paint pottery.
- Check out the aquarium.
- Make our favorite trail mix.
- Camp in the backyard.
- Complete a puzzle.
- Fly a kite.
- Ride a carousel.
- Paint a masterpiece.
- Practice writing our name and numbers with shaving cream or playdough.
- Make frozen fruit pops.
- Fly on an airplane and go to New York or somewhere new. (Because it’s really on our list!)
You definitely need to check out the entire Keen Moxie collection for your little lady or beau. They will be ready for any summer adventure, looking too cute to boot! These will also be the perfect shoes for all the walking we’ll be doing in New York.
