The Kids Summer Shopping Guide

Audrey J. Powers

School’s out for summer! 

While we love to have all the littles home for the next couple of months, we also find ourselves doing our best to get creative and come up with fresh ideas to keep everyone busy, active, and happy – no small feat! We would love to keep the kiddos off screens (which can be easier said than done), and with the gorgeous weather the season offers, playing outside is more appealing than ever. We sorted through everything from pool toys to outdoor art kits to find our favorite picks to help keep kids happy all summer long. Here’s to letting them be little!
