How to: Entertain a little girl in the summertime....

I have a very active little girl named Serenity. Her name does not fit her personality. She is active, happy, and full of life and energy. A motor mouth with a mischievous nature but a wonderful little girl none the less. Summer time can be tough, she likes to stay busy and its not always easy to keep up with her. I have a few tips to keep your little one busy while staying at home and spending less. I am always having crazy play dates so spending less when I can is important ;) Here are 10 tips to make summer fun and stay home doing it!

1) Have a tea party- Nothing satisfies a little princess more than a fancy afternoon tea with her Mommy.

2) Create a puppet/ shadow puppet show- Get crafty and creative.

3) Put your little one to work washing the car- She'll help out and cool off while doing so.

4) Have a photo shoot- Props make everything more fun

5) Go on a family bike ride- maybe do some Geo-caching in the neighborhood as well.

6) Pull out the pool- any time water is added she will love it!

7) Do some baking- if only she were old enough to do dishes too ;)

8)Have a camp out- smores, hot dogs, and spooky stories Yay!

9) Put on a performance- Whether she is acting out a play, singing, or dancing; performing for you/family/friends will excite any little girl!

10) Last but not least...Spa time-Pamper your princess with Mani Pedis.

We also like to do home made chocolate face masks with cucumbers for her eyes. Why not let her fix up your hair while your at it too.

Like my ideas? Then add your name to the email update list and see what we do next! (^_^)

  3. Missing data happens. Perhaps you don't have your scene nailed down yet? Forget about it, attempt to give us a harsh thought of where you're looking so we realize how to plan. koktale

  4. After a dinner, it is always good to have entertainment, to finish off the evening and enabling guests to leave happy. We have found Singing Waiters; Surprise Singing Guests and our Flamenco Guitarists and dancers particularly popular.koktale
