School is starting soon, but the camps are all ending before school starts. I never understood why the summer camps needed a break before school started when they would have the whole school year off, but that is the way it goes I suppose.
During these dog days of summer when your kids are out of camp and not yet back at school there are only so many trips to Target or to the grocery store you can drag your kids to before they start losing it in the produce aisle.
Nail colors are such a huge phenomenon these days that little girls are also getting into the nail color trends. Gone are the days of the red lacquer polish or the French manicure, girls today want to get dark burgundy nails, blue nails, black nails or multi colored neon nails with flowers or skulls on them. Leave it to your little girl to figure out how to adorn her digits.
Why this is great is because this can mean hours of fun for your girls when you need an hour to catch up on your work or an hour curled up with your book and a glass of ice tea.
For the last few days of summer think about having a nail party for your daughter with a few of her friends. Have them all bring their favorite nail colors and give one another mani pedis…out in the yard of course or at least put a towel on the floor wherever they decide to paint their nails if the event will be indoors. See how creative they can be. After the fingers and toes are polished and dry, serve them up some homemade juice popsicles and send them on their way. This activity should help quell the summertime afternoon boredom blues for you and your little one.
