Cheyenne and I sat down and created a summer essential list before we headed off to the Dominican Republic with Fathom Travel. The most important thing to me over summer break is hygiene and a little education, I know how easy it is to lounge by the pool or stay in bed all day watching tv so we came up with a list that makes Mom and their tween happy!
Now that Cheyenne hit the tween years she is determined to have gleaming white teeth! I'm thrilled she wants to take care of her teeth and gums so an essential we added to the list is the Philips Sonicare Essence+ for Kids. I love this rechargeable toothbrush because it promotes hygiene while encouraging kids to brush independently for two minutes twice per day.
This Bluetooth-connected toothbrush interacts with the Sonicare Kids App while coaching kids to brush properly and teaches important oral health facts and oral health needs including:
- Plaque Control
- Gum Health
The best part is the affordable price of $39.99 you can get the NEW Philips Sonicare Essence+ toothbrushthat delivers the same premium brushing experience you expect from Sonicare’s patented sonic technology
Clothing and Accessories
Now for something fun – clothes! We love heading out on a girls shopping trip to Ardene, if you hit a sale you can get a whole new wardrobe for a great price. Cheyenne loves their sandals, sundresses and of course accessories!
I like promoting outside activities that don't involve technology but are still fun. I love reading magazines during the summer sitting by the water, Cheyenne is a big fan of books especially the new Alice In Wonderland Adventures.
If you aren't a fan of reading or just need a break we're big fans of coloring books and keeping hydrated with our reusable water bottles.
Protect Your Skin
We all love spending time outdoors but the sun can be harsh on our skin, that's why I love spray on sunscreen. I find that the spray on sunscreen we all apply it more often and Cheyenne doesn't mind taking it with her while she's hanging out with her friends.
The Summer Look
Being a tween is rough sometimes, whether you are finding your way in the world or trying to make your hair just right and it won't cooperate, you always want to look your best. Cheyenne loves nail polish in all colors and her secret is a clear top coat to keep the polish on longer and protecting it from cracks and chips.
