My Top 7 Summer Must Have’s

With summertime I am out and about so much! These are My Top 7 Summer Must Have’s.  I like products I can use while on the go with my kids and a night out.  I need things that are helpful and easy.  There is not a lot of time to focus on stuff that takes a long time, so it has to be easy to use while chasing after my two and four year old.  These products make my summer easier and also make me feel awesome at the same time.

 

My Top 7 Summer Must Haves - I am on the go all summer long with my kids. These are my favourite products for summer to make my life easier & help me feel awesome.

 

My Top Summer Must Have’s

 

1. Large Utility Tote & Cool Clip Thermal

These items are essential for me.  A Large Utility Tote that holds up to 50 lbs and is easy to pop things in and out while running errands, going for play dates or to the park.  I use mine for groceries and library runs, super easy to carry things around easily while juggling my kids.  I use my cool clip thermal a few times a week, it is great for packing small snacks for the park or while running errands.  Mine usually has cheese strings, an ice pack, diet Pepsi, and sandwiches.  Easy, healthy snacks even while on the go.

 

2. Sunscreen Face Stick

I may just be lazy, or just that I don’t like the feel of sunscreen on my face.  But I LOVE these Sunscreen Sticks!  Super easy to apply to your face, and I even use it on my kids as they act like I am trying to water board them when I apply sunscreen to their faces.  At least this I can apply in seconds and they stay still for.

 

3. Silver Icing

I have a few friends who recently became stylists with Silver Icing and I am hooked!  The clothes are great while I am out and about with my kids.  Granted these clothes are the first non-maternity, non-breastfeeding clothing that I have worn in about five years.  I may be biased!  But seriously moms, find a consultant near you (or check out the link above for mine) and feel awesome while chasing your kids during the day.  Then look great for date night at night too!

 

4.  Jamberry Nail Wraps

I am still so in love with these nails!   I use my Jamberry nail wraps for my toes.  I always have them on my toes for a cute pedicure.  Who has time to worry about their nails??  I put these on my toes and forget about them for a few months (except when I look down and think about how cute my toes are).  It’s a great activity to do with my four-year-old daughter too.  She loves them so much and is always excited to get her nails done.

 

5. Bootay Bag

Totally biased as I LOVE getting surprises in the mail.  I am totally in love with Bootay Bag.  Getting a nice little package with new pretty panties in the mail makes me feel great.  Pair that with my Jam nails and Silver Icing clothes and I am ready for a night out with my hubby!  Seriously, two pairs of adorable panties right to your mailbox.  Who wouldn’t love that??  Guys, it’s a great gift for the lovely lady in your life!

 

6. My Happy Planner

I am still so addicted to my planner.  I need a large planner with different slots to keep track of my home/mom/family life, blog posts, and my own business too.  This lets me keep it all together, and a spot to add my notes, like reminding me to do yoga and walk three times a week.  I LOVE my planner so much!!  But I also love how close it is to scrapbooking, I love washi tape, and I also love stickers, what’s not to love!

 

7. Knitting

Or other on-the-go craft.  I love bringing my knitting with me to the park, in the backyard, meetings, anywhere.  Sitting and watching the kids is so easy while knitting, in fact, most moms are on their phones (and no I am NOT judging I do it too, only time to check your e-mail, log your food for the day, check in with your partner for dinner, grocery shop, or just relax and play candy crush) so while knitting I actually pay MORE attention as I am watching them the whole time while my hands are busy.

 

My Top 7 Summer Must Haves - I am on the go all summer long with my kids. These are my favourite products for summer to make my life easier & help me feel awesome.

DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case

DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case - Make this DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case with your kids and be all set for back to school. July edition of the Monthly Crafting Book Club.

This month for the Monthly Crafting Book Club we are focusing on Back To School Books & corresponding crafts.  I decided to do a general back to school craft and do a pencil case. Easy for a child to help make as well.  We picked some fabric at Walmart and grabbed some duct tape so we could make a fun craft.

Purple Pencil Case

I saw a bunch of different types of DIY pencil cases and decided to give it a go.  I was a big fan of duct tape in high school and made a bunch of things from it.  Now it comes in fun colours and there are so many more options.

DIY No-Sew Duct Tape Pencil Case - Make this DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case with your kids and be all set for back to school. July edition of the Monthly Crafting Book Club.

This is a super easy craft to make and you don’t even have to sew it!

Follow Raising Fairies and Knights’s board Children’s Literacy on Pinterest.

 

Materials Needed:

DSC_0062

  • Material
  • Duct tape
  • Zipper
  • Glue gun
  • Ribbon and other embellishments

 

How to Assemble:

Have fun with your material and duct tape and pick something you enjoy.  I bought the pre-cut material at Wal-Mart but still found it needed a trim.  Trim your material to the desired height, made sure that the width is the size of the zipper.

pencil case step 1

Put your material, print side down, on a hard surface and cover in strips of duct tape.  Then flip it over and trim the access duct tape.   Fold it in half and press a little along the middle to make it stick.

pencil case step 12

Use a glue gun to attach your zipper to one side.  Be careful not to get any glue on the zipper (I did and it makes it hard to open, oops! But making it extra toddler-proof).  Then fold both sides into the middle and glue the other side, go slowly as the glue dries fast.

pencil case step 123

Turn it inside out and use the glue gun to glue the sides.  Turn it outside again and voila, you have your case!  Now decorate with ribbons and whatever else!

DIY Sugar-Free Freezies

DIY Sugar-Free Freezies - A delicious treat to enjoy on a hot day with your kids.  Healthy frozen treat with no added sugar.

It’s summertime and that means it is really hot in Ottawa, Canada.  My kids like to endulge in cold treats.  Especially when playing outside.  I thought it would be a great idea to come up with a DIY Sugar-Free Freezies recipe to give them on hot days.  I prefer to give them things without sugar added (aka naturally sweet) for health reasons.  Lately studies are saying how bad sugar is for you.  I am on Weight Watchers and sugar is a lot of points, so I try to keep it for the really good treats.  I’m not totally crazy about sugar, I let them have timbits and cake.  Plus I know my hubby is always giving them ice cream and chocolate when he is eating it.  But I try to help them make healthy choices and eat healthy as much as I can.

The waiting part was very hard for them though!

DIY Sugar-Free Freezies
 
Author:
Recipe type: Frozen
Ingredients
  • Banana - ripe
  • Mango - cubed
  • ½-2/3 c greek yogurt (I use 0% fat)
  • ½ c of coconut milk
Instructions
  1. I mixed everything together and blended it with my hand-help immersion blender (but a regular blender or food processor works well too) until smooth with no chunks.
  2. Next using a spoon I filled up the silicone freezie molds and put them in the freezer until after nap time.

 

Now is the fun and sticky part!  I let the kids take the DIY Sugar-Free Freezies outside (not on my clean floor please!) to enjoy them.  Then get sprayed with the hose (which they think is awesome) or swim in the kiddie pool to clean off.  Success!!  Kiddos and hubby liked them!
