Little boys have a very unique way of enjoying the world, don’t they? Mine just love to have adventures. When they were younger, waking up meant that there were new surprises awaiting them with the dawning of the morning sun. Now that they’re a little older, they enjoy planning scavenger hunts and even getting their friends in on the fun. Summer means that there are plenty of opportunities to help your boys get out and enjoy the world. Just make sure you have plenty of outfits for them to change into. Be sure to check out Hartstrings for all of the great clothing for little boys that’s on sale right now.
Scavenger hunts in the back yard are a great way to spend an afternoon with your boys. It takes some time to prepare, but trust me, it’s worth it. You can start by planning out your hunt the night before. Get some index cards and write down your clues in order of how you want the boys to find them. Each clue should lead to another, until ultimately, they get to a prize at the end. I like the prize to be a treasure chest filled with goodies. It might be best to fill the treasure chest with little plastic bags full of candy, fruit, trail mix and toys from the dollar store, making one for each of your kids. You can hide your clues based on your kids’ ability to locate them. Be prepared though, it might mean digging in the dirt a little bit or even climbing up a tree in your yard. See why it’s a good idea to have plenty of clothing for little boys?
Visits to Grandma and Grandpa’s House
One of the best parts of our summer is when we all pile in the car and head out to see grandma and grandpa for the day. They live about an hour from us, so when we go, we plan on spending the day with them. As you can imagine, this is a favorite place for adventures. Grandpa always has some fun things planned, whether it’s taking the kids for rides on the four-wheeler, or throwing stones in the creek behind their house. I always want to be sure I have plenty of changes of clothes planned. Dark colors are great for these trips. I love Hartstrings’ Short-Sleeve V-Neck Tee and Nylon Pull- On Shorts in dark green. Although, it’s always a good idea to have some nylon pull-on pants for when they decide to go hiking in the woods. The kids always enjoy grandpa’s adventures, and they can’t wait to go back there again!
