Summer is coming to a close with just a few more weeks until school begins again!  Are you tired of your routine?  Are your kids bored?  Then, it’s time to MIX IT UP!

9 Ways to bring variety to your summer days:

  1. Beat the heat by having a breakfast picnic!
  2. Take a car trip to a place just an hour or two away that you normally do not go visit.
  3. Go to Space…by visiting a local observatory at night.
  4. Have an ice cream sundae party with several of your children’s friends.
  5. Go to the beach…again…the kids never tire of that!
  6. Let your kids teach you how to skateboard (or play soccer, play a Wii game, or whatever your child is into).
  7. Visit a retirement home and bring the residence Popsicle (I bet they haven’t had one in years!)
  8. Repaint a room in the house together (oops, my kids just told me no body wants to do that…)
  9.  Switch out your lipbalm (yep, it can be that easy to mix things up!)

Chapstick® has the solution! With a possible 3 flavors in one stick, you’ll get the most variety with one MixStix™! The flavors are delicious smelling combos of Green Apple/Caramel, Strawberry/Banana and Lemon/Berry. There is one flavor on each end, then mix to create the third flavor. I guarantee these will be a hit with your kids for back-to-school, or you can opt to keep your own stash hidden. Your entire family will love mixing up the flavors of these ultra-moisturizing Chapstick® formula!

  1. I had a lifestyle change this summer. I have been working out and eating healthier foods. I feel wonderful. I have also started taking different vitamins. I redecorated my bathroom too! I put up new shelving for storage purposes and organization. I used different quotes or word collections to inspire my moods. As well as some beautiful pics of Marilyn Monroe.

  2. What a life change! We became THOUSAND TRAILS camp hosts at Idyllwild! What a blast its been. I hope you’ll come see us! Bring chapstick and sunscreen, the UV rays are stronger here!

    Lots to to on the weekend,too

  3. I joined boot camp when summer started. I’ve been determined to get rid of my “baby” weight. I try to go 6 days a week. I’ve also been dieting with very few cheat days. I’ve wanted to organize this summer, but having a one year old and two big boys home, it’s easier to be out of the house than at home, so that hasn’t worked very well.

  4. we camped and had a great time most of summer but hit the road and experienced America not the theme parks but back roads

    I moved back to a town where most of my family and friends live. I have spent the summer getting my apartment together, getting used to my husband’s new job, and connecting with old friends.
