Summertime brings back all of the nostalgia of swimming, popsicles, playing outside, bbqs, and friends. For parents, it means no school! Enter: summer play dates.
Here’s a list of our favorite ways to make your summer play dates memorable, fun, and colorful!
1. Our first piece of advice, pick a date and stick to it! Everyone has busy schedules with sports, birthdays, and activities so getting a date on the calendar is most important. Your kids will have something to look forward to once a date, time, and place are solidified.
Make it fun with our Coloring Calendar!
2. Snacks, all of the snacks! We love fresh, summer produce.
Sliced watermelon, peaches, and strawberries are always kid favorites and easily shareable.
Cucumbers, carrots & homemade ranch- there’s something about crisp homemade ranch in the summer with fresh dill. It’s always a hit!
Fresh lemonade, yum!
Better yet, stop by a local farmers market and let your kids explore all of the new seasonal fruits and veggies.
PRO TINY TIP: Bring a personalized plate to make every snack something to look forward to
