Three Ways to Finish the Summer in Style

August 30, 2013

And How to Stay Safe While You're at it

It’s true, summer is almost over. So I have an idea: let’s forget about all the things we have to do to get ready for the school year and finish out the summer in style with a great Labor Day weekend.

Here are three ideas that can help.

Number 3

Sports. You have to get those kids running around and it’s not bad for us adults as well. Surprise your kids with a pickup game of kickball, whiffle ball or flag football. Kids against the adults usually makes it pretty interesting. So do following these easy tips.

Number 2

Make a Big Splash. A cannon ball is one of the best ways to end the summer – oh yeah, it’s fun for the kids, too. Anyway, here are a few tips to think about whether your family is relaxing in the water  or on the water.

And the Number 1 Way to Have Fun (insert drumroll here):

Cook out. This, of course, includes more than just the act of cooking the food. You’ve heard this from me before: It’s all about hanging out, relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends. Of course, we all know some moms and dads who take the grilling pretty seriously, which is great for the rest of us. Just make sure to consider the following simple safety tips.

No matter how you choose to spend your time, have a great Labor Day weekend from everyone at Safe Kids.
