Hi there Supermoms! I’m Amy and I blog at Ameroonie Designs. I am excited to be here sharing some Super tips to kick off the Summer!
At our house we don’t travel or do elaborate things during our summer break. That doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t try to live it up! The past couple of years I created a summer kickoff gift for my kids that includes toys and treats we’ll be using throughout the summer. Since they were things I probably would have purchased anyway, packaging them up in a fun way makes them special without adding any extra expense to the budget.
This year I am including some fun games — like the water ball sling shot and the catch game, glow sticks for our firework watching evenings, large bubble wands, a note pad to use as a journal, pedicure sets for the girls, and silly string to celebrate the last day of school.
I found these fun drawstring bags at the dollar store and thought they would be perfect for hikes or walks to Grandma’s and offer a great way to wrap everything up. New sidewalk chalk, water bottles and drink mix-ins complete the gift. Taking items I was already planning to buy for summer and packaging them up as a gift makes me feel like one Super Mom!
I live in Eagle Mountain, Utah, where I spend my time blogging, sewing, and crafting — well, the time that’s left over after taking care of my 5 children anyway. Over at my blog I share sewing tutorials like this fun mini coin purse — perfect for summer, craft ideas like my summer bingo clipboards and commiserate on being a mom in my Mom-day posts. I would love to have all you amazing Supermoms come visit.
