It’s no secret that our little family has been enjoying the summer months with lots of fun activities and trips. We have been taking full advantage of Kevin’s time off and being close to family. We have spent so many days and nights outside enjoying this Texas summer. Growing up in East Texas, I knew we would need two very important things throughout the summer months to enjoy our time outside, AVON’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard products and SPF. I’m so thankful that with these products,we can enjoy our activities outside without worry. The full line is also DEET-free which is a huge plus! They have such a great line up and there is a product for everyone, wherever your outdoor adventures take you. Our favorite outdoor activities this summer have been:
We spend a lot time out on my parents back deck and they have a lot of plants. Brooke loves to water the plants and walk around exploring with my parents. While she sprays the plants, I spray her with AVON’s Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition™ Pump Spray SPF 30 that repels mosquitoes for 8 hours and deer ticks for 10 hours. Deer ticks and mosquitoes are always out in this part of the country, so AVON works great!
The kids also love to ride their bikes up and down the driveway and around the porch. They tend to both switch back and forth between the car and bike. They have so much fun on those red sets of wheels. While the AVON Bug Guard Pump Spray is great, they also make an Aerosol version that works amazingly well and still repels against mosquitoes and deer ticks.
Oh, the art of blowing bubbles. Thankfully, we have a bubble blower, bubble guns and a lawn mower that turns out bubbles, because our kids love bubbles. They are also both learning the art of actually blowing them. My parents have been working with them to blow the bubbles soft so more than one will come out at a time.
Pool time is another huge favorite for our kids. We go to the local pool and the pool in Kevin’s parents’ neighborhood. The pool is where AVON’s Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze® SPF 30 Lotion comes in handy. It acts as a great SPF lotion and bug guard! Did I mention it is water-resistant?
You have probably noticed, but we find ourselves at Kevin’s parents’ lake house a lot. The kids love going out on the boat and jet skis. A lot of times, it can be hard to contain their excitement because they just want to get in the water so bad. When they are like this, I like to use AVON’s Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Cool ‘N Fabulous™ SPF 30 Lotion Disappearing Color, which goes on blue and disappears when rubbed onto skin. The blue color keeps the kids entertained long enough for me to lotion them up!
While these are our Top 5 Favorite Summer Outdoor activities, I could name so many more. Our kids just love playing outside and with AVON’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection, I know they are protected from bug bites and the sun. Now, they can play outside and enjoy just being kids without me having to worry. With items starting at just $14, it is so easy to pick the perfect item for your family. All of the AVON’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard products are available through your local AVON Representative.
