Summer is the best time of year for kids! Keeping them engaged, entertained, and safe throughout the summer is easy when you throw in a few unique products! Whether you are enjoying a staycation or traveling this summer, these summer must-haves are worth investing in this summer!

Good Old Fashion Slingshot Fun!

I remember when my son got his first slingshot. He loved it so much and still has it years later. The aGreatLife Bear Wood-Carved Slingshot is hand carved from solid wood and built to last.

Not only will your son or daughter love sending projectiles through the air this summer but they will have this timeless toy for years to come. It’s even fun for adults to use! The elastic bands are made form strong surgical material and seem tied really well to the wood handle.

Get outside with your kids and have some good old fashion fun this summer with this toy. You can buy the aGreatLife Bear Wood-Carved Slingshot on for about $15.

Whistle While You Play!

Kids LOVE whistles! aGreatLife Wolf Whistle & Bird Call Whistle 2 in 1 Set is more than just a whistle. It is a gorgeous hand carved and hand painted whistle in the shape of a wolf or bird that looks stunning while easy to blow for sound.

Sometimes young kids have difficulty blowing whistles but this one is easy to use with a good sound. Plus, it is made to last out of solid wood. No worries about splinters or anything like that because it is smoothly sanded on all edges and surfaces.

Kids of all ages, especially kids that like animals and the outdoors would love playing with this whistle this summer. Plus, it makes a fun keyfob for adults/teens and great as an extra safety precaution to have with you at all times. It would also make an excellent party favor for backyard bbqs, birthday parties, family reunions, and other family gatherings.

Must-Have Beach Accessory

Don’t go to the beach (whether locally in Ohio like Westbranch State Park, Silver Creek, or Lake Erie) or to the ocean without the BeachBUB umbrella. It is easy to pack up and keep in it’s bag, easy to install, and protects your family from dangerous sun so you can stay and play longer at the beach!

Go Fly a Kite!

Nothing say summer quite like a new kite!  aGreatLife’s kites are not only adorable but also durable for kite-flying fun all summer long! We love going to open fields like the one at Virginia Kendall Ledges to fly our kites in the summer and fall months.  We also bring along kites to fly on the beach too! it is super fun to fly kites high over the beach and ocean!

These kits are very easy to assemble and at a great price of only $11.99 – it is a great way to get outside for fresh air and a little exercise this summer whether you are at home, camping, or on vacation!

Portable Brain Teaser Fun

Keeping kids’ minds sharp during the summer is important. Keeping them entertained on long road trips is essential. Surprise them with a 2-dimensiaonal puzzle like aGreatLife’s 2×2 or 3×3 cube.

I like these items as gifts because it is something both kids and adults can play with and kids don’t outgrow the fun like traditional toys.

This 2×2 cube is a more relaxed, easier version of the traditional 3×3 cube. It provides hours of fun in the palm of your hand which means it is easy to pack on road trips, airplane trips, and can easily be stored in your purse! It is a great brain teaser to keep kids and adults’ minds sharp. Buy the 2×2 cube on on for about $7.

aGreatLife’s 3×3 cube turns quicker and more precisely than the original version. This updated version offers smooth play with cubes turning faster.

If you need help getting started, download the Cube Solver app to learn how to solve the cube in less than 22 moves. Buy the 3×3 cube on  for about $13.

Turn Puzzles into Art

Turning your puzzle into a permanent presentation is fun, every time you see it, you’ll be reminded of the summer you put that puzzle together.  Buy the aGreatLife’s easy to use 12-sheet Peel & Stick Puzzle Saver on for about $11.
