1. Getting Waterlogged
If you have a swimming pool, SWEET! Make sure to load up on pool toys or water toys! Floats, beach balls, goggles, game sets, noodles and squirt guns or soakers make for hours of fun! We snagged some squirt soakers and a Frozen beach ball. The kids love these and always have so much fun.
2. Sunscreen & Soothers
I know that summer just isn’t summer without a flaming sunburn but we DO need to try to prevent them! We’re all really fair skinned around here and burn wayyyy too easily. I loaded up on some sunscreen, lip protector and sunglasses at Dollar General. Make sure to grab extra to keep in your beach bags for on the go too! Don’t forget to grab some Aloe gel for soothing sunburns (just in case!).
3. Grillin’ and Entertainin’ Essentials
Cooking outside is fun. We love to grill…the food just always tastes better, right?! We got everything we needed in one trip! Paper plates, condiments like ketchup and mustard. Those are the biggies at our house! Don’t forget the disposable cups, silverware and ohh, ohhh…don’t forget the aluminum foil! We always run out when we do tons of grilling!
4. Drinks & Freezer Treats
If your house is like ours, the kids can run in and out, and in and out, alllll day long. Usually after something to drink. We keep bottled water on hand all the time anyway, and we always stock up on the Clover Valley bottled water from Dollar General. They always have really great deals on juice, Kool-Aid, and those boxes of freezer pops!
5. Keep the Kids from Getting HANGRY
Always, ALWAYS keep snacks around so the kids don’t wig out! My kiddo gets super cranky when he’s hungry so I make sure to have healthier snacks on hand between meals for him. Dollar General always has such a great selection of snack foods and groceries! Now, mommy will sneak and get the Clover Valley cookies. Have you had them? Mercy!! I keep a stash hid for myself.
