Top 5 Summer Essentials for the Stay At Home Mom

Summer is already just weeks away, so I thought today I would share with you some summer essentials every SAHM needs/would benefit from having.

Pool

Since we live in a townhouse, we do not have a yard. BUT, if we had a yard, number 1 on my list would be a blow up pool! These were my two favorite finds on Amazon.

Puddle Jumper

Emma has been in swimming lessons this spring, but I am not ready to tackle the pool with a baby and a 4 year old not in floaties.  So for everyone’s sanity AND SAFETY, we will be using our puddle jumper this summer...unless dad is with us to help out!

Picnic Blanket

I love this picnic blanket. I just got one for Mother’s Day. I’m looking forward to using it at the beach in a couple of weeks, but I’m also gonna use it when we go on picnics.

Bubble Machine

As wonderful as summer is, it can bring some crazy days for moms and kiddos alike.  I don’t know what it is about bubbles, but they always calm down the crazy at our house.  We absolutely love our bubble machine.  From babies to big kids, bubbles are a must for summer fun!

Something to Build With

Make sure your child has a way to build this summer.  This engages their creativity/imagination and works on early math skills. Our favorite is MagnaTiles, but we also like to pull out the blocks and legos.
