1.Color Wonder Magic Light Brush is the coolest thing ever! I am just as fascinated by it as my kids are! It provides so much fun and creativity, my kids will do this for hours. PLUS, it is mess free!! If you have little ones that love to paint or color, they need this!! It is so fun, it even occupied me for a while!!

2.Reusable Magnetic Water Balloons I am obsessed with these and so are my kids!! Literally hours of fun and they keep your kids cool just by playing! Fun for water balloon fights, water play, throw them against a wall and watch the splash, practice motor skills when you refill them. So much fun!! All you have to do is open them, bring it under water and close it, then throw! While these are a bit pricey for water balloons, you buy them one time and have hours of play for Summers to come! Plus it helps the environment and there are no pesky balloon pieces to clean up after!

3. MEL Science Kits are amazing!! These are monthly STEM boxes that not only keep your child busy, but actually teach them about math, science, etc. and the kids don’t even realize they are learning! My son made a spring loaded race car, learned about friction, and then had a fun toy to play with whenever he wants to! These can also be on the pricey side, BUT they are having awesome deals this Summer (2023)! Code SAVE50 will give you 50% off your first box and code YEAR50 will give you 50% off your boxes for an entire year!! Your kids will love this and so will you!!
