Best Mom Hacks for Summer

Save Your Sanity BEST MOM HACKS for Summer! Whether you are braving the open roads with a family vacation, or spending your time at home, these tips will help keep your kids busy - and your sanity intact! No Pool? No morries! No need to invest in pricey lawn water toys. Recycle your two liter soda bottle by piercing holes in it and attaching the water hose to the mouth of the bottle. Let kids cool off in the grass as the water sprays! Super Fort Keep your kids busy for days by helping them build a super-fort. Use cardboard boxes to make a house that will keep them busy as they decorate, build additions, and play in their new dwelling. 17 Hero Rescue Mission Keep little ones entertained in the heat by freezing a toy in a water filled pan. Kids must squirt away the ice with warm water to help save their hero! You can also fill the large ice cube with more toys, and let kids chip away with a small hammer. All Roads lead to Summer Too hot outside? Use painter's tape to give your kids unlimited road construction capabilities. There is no end to where these roads will go! Tin Foil River Unroll several feet of tinfoil, and let your kids help you as you bend the edges up. Then, fill with an inch or two of water and let the races begin! Ice cubes or bottle caps make great floating boats. Smart Travel Tips: Sensible Suitcase Stock up and save on a few extra vacation outfits with online coupons at Coupons.com. When you pack for your kids, put an outfit for each day in a Ziplock-m bag (including accessories and socks). Each day, your child just needs to choose a Ziplock. Dirty clothes can go back in the bag at the end of the day. Snacks, Snacks, & More Snacks! Every Mom agrees, having snacks at the ready is essential to keep the peace in your vehicle on long road trips. Find printable grocery coupons at Coupons.com to save on kid-friendly snacks. Organize a snack tackle box for each child to keep things fair and the fights to a minimum. Magnetic Games Use a pizza pan or cookie sheet to make magnetic friendly games that won't be lost or jostled in the bumps of the road! Find free printables online, or simply add magnets to games you already own. LTOP ROAD TRIP. I Spy...Quiet Time! Keep kids busy in the car with a homemade I Spy game. Simply fill a plastic bottle with rice and various objects they need to find. Secure the lid with hot glue so it doesn't become loose later. Kids will enjoy this shakeable treasure hunt. Organized-on-the-Go Before a trip, fill a three-ring binder with reservations, coupons and discount offers for restaurants along the route, pre-purchased tickets, a list of car games, and plastic pages holding entertainment CDs and DVDS.
