Just a quick reminder that yesterday was the first day of the hurricane season (even though we have already had two named storms). Here a quick link to help you get ready for this season. Things I Wish I Knew Before my First (4) Hurricanes. It is a quick read with some good hacks to make the storm (and the aftermath) as tolerable as possible.
My Summer Picks:
It’s official! Summer is here! School’s Out Teachers let the Monkeys Out! I have a great list of things for you do to with your little monkeys this summer! This week I have added the Summer Savings Pass to my list! Don’t forget to check into the calendar because I have added many new items!
We pick this Summer Saving Pass up every year. It is a great deal, you get unlimited admission to four different attractions. The Museum of Discovery and Science, Lion Country Safari, Miami Seaquarium, and Miami Metro Zoo. I particularly like that the Museum of Discovery is air conditioned! Bonus!
One last piece of business, we are so thrilled to welcome our newest sponsor to the Keeping Up With Kids family, Turtle Town Day Care is a licensed in home toddler day care in Boca Raton. If you need a daycare for you toddler, there is truly no better, more loving, fun, and safe place around! Click Here to learn more about Melissa and Turtle Town Day Care.
Library Programs for Broward and Palm Beach Counties
Your local library is the best place to get out of the summer heat for an special activity. We are so blessed here in South Florida with some really amazing libraries that offer kids shows, demonstrations, play areas, and incredible learning opportunities! Click Here for links to many of my favorite libraries from Broward and Palm Beach!
If you are trying to keep your kid reading this summer, then this is the one book for you. You can borrow books from the library for free without ever leaving your house and the kids can simply touch a word they don’t understand and get the definition without disrupting their story time! Click Here to learn why you should get a Kindle (the black and white one like the PaperWhite, not the Kindle Fire)
Kids Bowl Free
Take the kids Bowling for free! If you sign up for free, your kids get to bowl (2 games a day) for free all summer long!
