We are just a few days away from ending our school year. What does this mean? First, it means I will officially have a Kindergartner. I’m trying to spare you the reminiscing, but I seriously cannot believe this is happening! I just had him yesterday, didn’t I? Next, it also means we are heading into summer, which means lots of Playdates and fun!!
I happen to LOVE summer. It means days filled with playing hard, long evenings outside, and peaceful sleep! It also brings its challenges especially being a work at home mom. I still have to work! So, I fill up our days with activities and then try to work during naps. This year, I have both my kids in a summer program for a few days a week, but on the days they are home I like to be sure that I do fun activities with them.
My son loves crafting, so this past weekend I stocked up on our crafting supplies. I love doing little activities with them each day, then while my daughter is napping I have crafting activities planned for my son so he can sit next to me and ‘work’ while I work. He loves to do a variety of activities during his ‘work’ time that includes coloring, practicing his handwriting, and doing workbooks as well.
We headed out to Walmart to load up on our supplies!
This just means I have to stock up on a lot of supplies including several boxes of Crayons, Markers, and Crayola Color Wonder too! What else do I stock up on? Juicy Juice! He enjoys having his snack time during his work time too. So, I like to stock up on little boxes of Juicy Juice.
The best part is right now Crayola and Juicy Juice have teamed up to offer savings on select products!
Have you tried the orange tangerine flavor from Juicy Juice? I’m not sure if my kids drank all of those or my husband and I! They were so good, we found a new favorite flavor.
Next up it was time to craft! Our project consisted of decorating a T-Shirt with the Fabric Markers. I love that he can work independently while I get work done as well without having to turn on the TV!
When we have Juicy Juice in the house, suddenly my son is part camel!
After our indoor crafting, we headed outside for some one on one time during my daughter’s nap. I like to have a little bit of downtime to just focus on my son. It really helps him get some one on one attention. We loaded up with our chalk and took to the driveway for some outdoor fun and learning!
The first thing we always do with our chalk is play hopscotch. My son calls it ‘hop-squash,’ and I know one day he will pronounce it right so I’m cherishing the cuteness in the way he says it.
We also like to do writing lessons outside too. He is doing so well with spelling and writing his letters. He was practicing his name for me along with some of the new words he has learned to spell.
We enjoyed our playtime and are ready for many playdates ahead, plus lots of activities to do over the summer months! Are you ready to load up on Crayola & Juicy Juice for an Ultimate Playdate? Be sure to utilize the money saving coupons between now and September on select products!

On the fabric markers, does it stay or is it wash off too? I know it’s probably dumb, but I was thinking “Do they decorate them and I throw in wash, and then they can do it again tomorrow?” or is it forever? 🙂
So far it’s stayed on. I would imagine at some point it fades but it hasn’t yet!
I have one of those “part camel” kids when we break out the Juicy Juice too. Looks like a fun playdate and so nice to get that one-on-one time! I really need to try those fabric markers. #client
