  3. First Aid

    A few bumps and scratches are bound to happen. Keep a fully stocked first aid kit to save the day!

  4. Smart Snacking

    Swap chips and pizza for fresh fruit and veggies, tasty sandwiches, and other healthy foods to fuel playtime.

  5. Stay Sharp

    Find fun educational activities to do as a family and keep young minds active while they’re away from the classroom.

  6. Screen Time

    Set limits for screen time so kids aren’t constantly glued to their devices. Get them up to do something active instead—that’s what summer is all about!

  7. Allergies

    Don’t let sneezing, itchy eyes, or a runny nose keep your kids from going outside. Children’s allergy meds will help them breathe a sigh of allergy relief.

  8. Self-Care Sundays

    Even kids need to unwind and care for their bodies and minds. Designate Sundays for self-care and get the whole family involved.

  9. Good Night's Rest

    Kids ages 3-5 should get 10-13 hours of sleep, while 6- to 13-year-olds need 9-11 hours.

  10. Sun Protection

    Keeping skin safe from the sun’s harsh rays is crucial all year round, but especially in summer. Apply sunscreen every day and reapply often.
