The weather is nice, and It’s a great time to play outside, so here are 6 fun outside things to do to bust that boredom!
We love to go to our park playground. We climb, swing, play, and have lots of fun! We bet you love to do that too. If you go to the park, make sure you bring water to drink. You could even pack a lunch to eat in the park.
Have you played tag lately? If you’re not sure of the rules, it’s super easy to play. First choose one person to be “it”. Then “it” runs around chasing the others players. When “it” tags (touches) another player then the tagged player becomes “it”. The person who is “it” constantly changes, which makes the game move super fast and fun. You’re usually not sure who is “it” which is a huge part of the fun!
Summer is a great time to ride your bike or scooter. Make sure you find a safe place to ride, like the sidewalk, a park, or a walking track. Don’t forget your helmet!
Tell me in the comments if you’re having lots of giggles this summer! XOXO: Evangeline

Hey GEMS! We’ll all be spending more time playing outside and being active now that school is out. Since it’s hotter in the summer it’s important that we all drink plenty of water. We want to stay healthy so we can have lots of fun this summer, so we’ve come up with 5 tips for how to drink enough water.
But first if you’re not convinced you should be drinking water, here are a few fun facts for those of you who need to know why!
Our body is made up of 60% to 70% water. Now that’s a LOT of water! That alone should make all of us see how important it is to drink water! Our body uses water in so many ways. It’s needed for our muscles and joints to move, for our brain to think, for our stomach to digest food, and to keep our body from getting too hot or too cold. Water even effects if we are in a good or bad mood!
So, here’s our 5 tips on how to get enough water this summer!
Get a colorful cup, with a fun straw. That’s way more fun than a plain glass, or a clear plastic water bottle, and you’ll always know which water is yours! Why not buy two? You can leave one at home, and take the other one with you when you go outside to play or go to the pool. Is super important to drink water when you’re active.
Put slices of lemon, lime, cucumber, or mint leaves in your water. It gives it a nice light natural taste.
Tip from Giselle:
We have lemon trees and also mint growing in our back yard. I love to put 4-5 mint leaves or a lemon slice in a glass of ice water. Sometimes I make a whole pitcher of mint water or lemon water and keep it in the fridge for everyone to enjoy. It tastes even better when it sits in the fridge for a while.
