Summer is in full swing, and if you’re looking for things to keep cool and keep your family entertained this season, here are some affordable things from Target I’m loving…
Pineapple Bubble Maker – Is there anything more fun than the simple pleasure of bubbles? Especially because it does all the work for you! Plus, give me anything cute and pineapple this summer! Speaking of…
Pineapple Backpack Cooler – Whatever you’re doing this summer, we hope some part includes going out to explore. This cute and bright backpack will keep your snacks and drinks cool (and easy to spot if you’re headed to crowded destinations).
Noodle Sling Pool Float – Have you tried one of these before? I have it in my cart now and can’t wait to see how it works. I love how this can be fun for us adults, too, who surely deserve some relaxation time in the pool!
Bean Bag Toss Set – Everyone loves a fun game of cornhole, especially in the evenings when the heat breaks with cool drink in your hands! If you don’t have a set, get one, invite over your neighbors, and play.
Tabitha Brown for Target Beach Towel – I love Tabitha Brown and her new line at Target. This beach towel is oversized and perfect for wrapping everyone up after a long day in the water. Check out her whole collection here.
Waterproof Disposable Camera ($14) – I loved these as a kid and couldn’t wait to take photos underwater. Document all the amazing dives, cannonballs, and mermaid swims this summer. Then get them developed at summer’s end and have another fun activity remembering your amazing summer.
Minnidip Splash Pad Sprinkler – If you don’t have a pool or easy access to a community pool, we’ve got you covered! This fun splash pad provides lots of splashy goodness and keeps everyone cool on hot summer days.
Mermaid Fin ($35) – This is a fun addition to your pool toys! Try it on and see what it’s like to swim just like a mermaid. (Plus, I imagine it would be a great core workout!) This would be great for strong swimmers in your household.
Jungalow x Target Lounge Daybed – If you’re lucky enough to have the outdoor space to accommodate it, how amazing is this daybed by my friend Justina of The Jungalow? I love that the covering is included and the lounge is adjustable. Now all I need is a fruity drink and a free afternoon…
Inflatable Rainbow Pool ($20) – No pool? No problem! Inflate your own. I love these because there are several fun patterns to chose from and the price is right. But there are also adult-sized inflatable pools out there, so everyone can fit!
Minnidip Dog Pool – Dogs need fun, too! These pools are so smart and dog-friendly – the bottom is extra thick and no part is inflatable so your dog can jump in and out without worries about anything popping. Everyone is going to be hot this summer, so treat the whole family!
Play Center – If you’ve got little ones at your house this summer, this play set is fun for minis! Connect your water-hose to the inflatable and fun sprinklers come on to make you slip and slide.
Oh So Kind! An Oh Joy! Storybook ($9) – When it’s time to take a break inside or for summer bedtime stories, Oh So Kind! is a perfect summer read to remind all of us to be kind to our friends and neighbors. It might even inspire your family to come up with a summer kindness project for someone in your lives.
