News flash: back to school is not a season. Just because everyone is talking about it already does not mean we can’t enjoy the full month left of summer. Here are some reminders on how to do just that.
Build an outdoor fort
Why? Because it’s fun, it’s simple and it’s the foundation for any great imagination station. All you need are some old sheets, towels or blankets. Then get cozy, stay late and bring flashlights.
To the Stratford Shakespeare Festival
Why? Because the summer is winding down, and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival has a great family deal for you! For the month of August, get a family four pack of tickets to You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown for only $99* plus tax when you quote promo code SNOOPY. Reconnect with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang and introduce them to the children in your life.
*Offer may end without notice. Some conditions apply.
Smart about lice
Why? Because this time of year is prime time for lice. The Lice Squad has all of the products (we recommend the LS 2 in 1 Nit Kit) and resources you need to help get you through this bumpy time. Lose them before school starts.
Catch a Firefly
Why? Because it’s fun and harmless and (don’t tell the kids) they might even learn something in the process.

By watering your lawn very early in the morning or late at night to help conserve H2O
Why? Because the cooler temperatures will minimize evaporation and the ground will absorb more water.

Why? Because we have some gold medal recipes and party ideas in PartySavvy this month that are too much fun not to make.
Me to We Style by buying The Africa Tee
Why? Because this beaded tee gives back to the Maasai people and 50% of proceeds from this eco-friendly, sweatshop-free tee will go to helping families in rural Kenya generate their own means of sustainable income. You’ll be giving them a chance at a better life by helping to break the cycle of poverty.
