I remember summertime growing up as freedom. Rules were a little more relaxed, we rarely had tight schedules, and the hot weather meant swimming to our hearts’ content. Vi is just two (almost three!), but I want to make sure she gets the same slow summers I loved as a kid. I have found some favorite ideas around the web for us to stay grounded this summer.
- This list of quickly growing plants for kids is perfect to help her feel connected to the earth and help us out in our garden.
- My favorite easy hot-weather treat is making a big comeback and is as delicious as ever (and fast and pretty healthy too, so this is a win for sure).
- My parents got Vi an adorable water table for her backyard amusement and, I have to say, she is absolutely obsessed with it.
- We haven’t tried grilling a pizza in a long time, but it is a fun option when you want something easy you can enjoy outside. The kids can pick their own toppings and everyone is happy.
