DIY Beach Bag Capri Sun #CapriSunMomFactor

Summer is here, and it seems that I have a little fish on my hands. We’ve been making the trek to the pool every day, and there is a LOT of stuff to haul around. So I got out my sewing machine and created this DIY Beach Bag.

My son loves Capri Sun pouches, so I decided to use some empty ones to decorate the beach bag. This was a fun craft, and he loves the big eyes on the fish! Plus, I used a laundry bag, so it can stand up to all the wet clothes and towels that we tend to throw around.

DIY Rain Clouds and Summer Education with Netflix

DIY Rain Clouds

With school right around the corner, Netflix challenged us to get out of our summer funk and get our brains working. My kids are still pretty young, so I wanted to talk about something that is fun and relatable to them — these DIY Rain Clouds were perfect! It has been raining here a ton and my boys have been pretty interested in it. They are always asking questions.

I turned to Netflix to get us started. They have so many great resources. We watched The Magic School Bus and had so much fun learning about rain! My boys sat for an hour working on their “clouds.” I hope your kids enjoy this and it brings some entertainment and learning to your home!

So many of my friends and family are having babies that I’ve been trying to stock up on baby supplies. It’s sometimes hard to shop around and find the lowest prices available for diapers, wipes, medicine, and all the other extras you need when starting out with a little one.

But I didn’t have to worry about that this time around. I shopped at Walmart for some diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment, and some cute baby clothes as gifts for my cousin’s upcoming baby shower. Then, I used Walmart Savings Catcher to scan my receipt after my purchase to ensure that I didn’t miss any savings!
