Summer, summer, summertime, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind! I hope you sung that just like I did! My love for 90’s music is showing a bit. But hey, summer is here! Are you ready? Ready for days at home with your kids? Ready for refereeing fights all day? Ready for choruses of “I’m Bored!”? Ready for those HOT days in the sun while the kids play and you try not to melt or burn? Oh summer, you are lovely! All of the moms out there will need a little help to get through the summer so I decided to put together a cute and colorful Summer Survival Bag for Mom. Look, we all want to believe that we are super moms but there are days that we just need a little help to survive!
Summer Survival Bag for Mom
Like I said before, we all want to believe we are super mom and will survive summertime with the kids in style but we really should just be honest with ourselves…we need help! That being said, self-care is always something that women seem to forget to prioritize and during the summer when parents do not have the school schedule to rely on they often get run down and just plain stressed! It is a fact…school and teachers keep moms everywhere sane! Thank your teachers!
When I made these festive and colorful survival bags I wanted to include some great self-care items but also fun summer touches like flip flops and yummy MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour. Oh and did you happen to notice the water soaker? Friends, my vision of that special item is for moms to spray the kids when the kids need a little reminder of who’s boss this summer!
Items for a Summer Survival Bag For Mom
These is no right way to do this bag, the contents should match the personalities of the moms you are giving them too. I started by finding a nice beach bag at Walmart that could be reused throughout the summer and simply started to find fun summer items to add to the bag.
- Beach Bag
- Fun Summer cup
- Summer sign
- Sleep mask
- Nail Polish
- Flip Flops
- MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour
- Squirt gun (to keep the kids in line)
Mike & Ike’s MegaMix Sours
I knew I had to add some boxes of the new MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour that can be found exclusively at most Walmart stores. The Mega Mix box is filled with a mix of 10 different flavors of the loved MIKE AND IKE candies but with a SOUR twist. These perfect sweet and sour fruit flavored candies are the perfect treat for any summer afternoon. These colorful treats are perfect for any summer event and I might even add some of these to our holiday ice cream bar. Yum!
I love the MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour because I can easily through them in our swim bag or backpack for hiking and have a nice treat. The whole family will enjoy these but for my Summer Survival Bag for Mom I know that the mom that gets these bags will be happily enjoying her MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour on her own when she needs a little Mom break.
Cheers to a great summer ahead! Moms remember to enjoy your time with your kids, even on the days that you want to spray them with your water soaker. Take time outs…yes, Moms can take time outs too and find sometime to relax and enjoy the summer season as well. Oh and if you need to fill the water bottle with something other than water…no one is judging you.
Now that I have introduced my mom friends to the yummy MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour I know that all of us will make sure to stock up on these colorful cylinder snacks for all of our activities and family fun days. They just make my summer brighter and more fun! Now, I would say that the kids enjoy them too but I haven’t let my kids get a taste of these because they are MINE! But, if you would like to make sure the whole family enjoys the MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour grab a box before you head out to your next family adventure.
