Hello everyone! I”m Rebecca Smith and I blog at ialwaysbelievedinfutures.com. I am so excited to be guest posting for Becky – I have been reading her blog for a very long time so to get the opportunity to guest post is amazing!

When planning your summer activities with your toddler, make sure that you always have the no-drama summer kit available – sun cream, a hat, cooler/warmer clothes depending on what your child is wearing, insect repellent, drinks to keep them hydrated and a mini first aid kit – it is better to be prepared than sorry when it comes to being out and about with your toddler – who knows what could happen?
2. Filling up the paddling pool. This is such a simple idea. (We actually like to take day trips to the coast during the summer and love paddling in the sea). However, this is a handy idea for an afternoon when you don’t want to leave the house. It will give your kids (& yourself) hours of fun at home!
3. Crafting. Do you like crafting? How about your toddler? Get on Pinterest and pick some fun, easy summer crafts for you to do together – I’m thinking Kool-Aid Ice Painting or Kool-aid painting is something we will try!
4- Make a picnic. I’m guessing your toddler has very clear ideas on what they like to eat, right? Tell them you are going to have a picnic one day and spend the morning putting together the perfect feast. You can cook & prepare together the night before… perhaps make some sandwiches, some muffins – and some home made popsicles. When they are helping, they can enjoy their picnic knowing they helped to create it.
5. Wash their cars and bikes! Have a bike and trike wash. This is a new idea to me but I love it – your toddler gets to have lot of fun playing with buckets, water, sponges and the like – plus they get their bikes and trikes sparkling clean! Having a boy, I know how dirty toys can get – so if I can make chores fun, then why not?
