Tip:

Make summer more exciting with a once-a-day challenge for your kids. Write your daily challenge on a small piece of paper. Challenges can include activities such as "have a picnic with mom," "help in the garden," "make playdough," or "go fishing with dad and catch one fish." Roll up the paper, and place it in an empty essential oil bottle and designate an area that the new challenge will be placed every day. With this thrilling new trick, your kids will be rushing to see what's next!
