The dog days of summer are upon us. For my Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks of the week, here are my top pins inspired by outdoor activities that are fun for the whole family.
Popular Water Activity Pin
My top popular water activity is a pin that keeps popping up in my Pinterest feed this summer. For a cool activity that your kids will enjoy for hours, try the giant outdoor waterbed from Utah County Mom.
Popular Toddler Activity Pin
For toddlers who may not be ready for a giant outdoor water bed, another fun water activity is the tin foil river from Camo Bows. Use kitchen foil and a little bit of water to create a fun water activity for littles.
Popular Sidewalk Pin
Sidewalk chalk is a staple among kids during the hot days of summer. For a variation on plain old chalk, try some exploding sidewalk chalk from Growing a Jeweled Rose, which keeps popping up in my Pinterest feed.
Popular Portable Game Pin
For many families, summertime means spending time at the beach. For a fun and portable game idea, my top portable game pin of the week is the portable game board from Martha Stewart.
Popular Yard Game Pin
If you prefer to spend hours in your own backyard during the dog days of summer, then check out the yard Twister idea from Aucharisteo. With some lawn paint and a circle stencil, you can play Twister for hours without the annoying mat.
