Summer is my favourite season of the year, and part of that is because my boys are done school! I love spending time with them but if I’m not careful, we can sometimes fall into a pattern of just wasting our days away without really accomplishing anything. That’s why this year I’m taking steps to make sure that my boys and I still have some productivity even in the lazy days of summer. Luckily for me, these four tips from Church & Dwight are the perfect place to start!
- Encourage your children to get off their phones and get outside! In the summer, your kids have no excuse not to run around in the backyard and burn off excess energy. Use this time to get to that huge pile of dishes or laundry that has been piling up. To clean all those dirty clothes and remove the grass stains your kids drag in, why not use Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ Cold Water Power Paks, an inexpensive and reliable product that will leave your kids clothes looking as good as new.
- Stay healthy! Between soccer practice, summer camp and swim lessons, summer often means eating quick on-the-go meals. Take L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™, a complete multivitamin that any kid will love, to ensure your children are getting all of their essential nutrients!
- Keep a routine! Ensure you and your children keep a routine during the summer months even if you’ve turned off the alarm clock. Sleeping in and staying up late are great, but will lead to unproductive days. Getting your children excited about boring tasks, like brushing their teeth and completing household chores, will help your children keep a routine during the summer. Arm & Hammer Kid’s Spinbrush and Orajel Flouride and Flouride-Free Toothpastes that tastes great and comes in popular characters such as My Little Pony, Mario, Spiderman and PAW Patrol to get them brushing all summer long…because Mom knows when brushing is fun, it gets done.
- Get the kids to help with some chores! Having an extra set of hands around the house during the summer can be helpful. Talk with your kids and see what type of chores they can help with – emptying the dishwasher and setting the table are easy tasks that can give you back a few minutes of your day. Having kids fold the laundry is also a great help, and you can trust what they are folding will receive a better overall clean with OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover Powder – which boosts your detergent power to get out even the toughest stains.
We’ve already got a lot of fun planned for our summer vacation over the next two months, but we’ll also have a lot of free time at home. With these tips, I know that we’ll reach September feeling happy, healthy and fulfilled. And that’s the best sign of a summer well spent!

I love Oxiclean!
We often fall out of routine for a week or so, then get back on track. It helps with the summer business! Good night times help! My son loves his spin brush. He gets excited to brush!
We couldn’t wait for summer as my mother would allow us to stay up a little bit later and sleep in as well.
I really need to start taking my vitamins again. I’m already falling out of good habits.
Great tips. My grandchildren like the L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™. No problem to get them to take them because they are tasty.
So hard to keep the kids busy in the summer!! Thanks for the tips and I just love those products :)
These are great products and great tips too.My kids were allowed a little more leeway when they ere out of school for the summer,but they were into so many sports that they were usually tired enough to go without a fuss.I would love to get me one of those Spinbrushes to try.They look so nice!!
We love the SpinBrushes
Great products and great tips, when my girls were younger I still kept the same bedtime in the summer, they were only allowed to stay up later if we went camping or somewhere on holidays, but their routine stayed pretty much the same during the summer months as it was for school!!
I love their products!!!
