Summer Family Fun Ideas You Need to Try

Summer Family Fun Ideas You Need to Try

Summer is in full swing and whether you’re planning a BBQ, pool party, beach day or road trip, I have the scoop on everything you need for some summer family fun. Check out the products I featured on KTLA this morning below and then watch the segment by visiting the On Air page!

Summer Entertaining Essentials from World Market

World Market is your one stop”summer family fun” shop for everything you need to host a BBQ or pool party. I love entertaining and having my daughter’s friends and their families over during the summer and I couldn’t believe everything World Market has to offer. They have BBQ tools and accessories like this Bluetooth meat thermometer that my husband is obsessed with because he can keep an eye on the BBQ without having to hover over it. There are also tons of games and outdoor toys for the kids like a fun sprinkler, water balloons, mini kites, and pool inflatables. And then there’s my favorite thing to shop for – accessories for entertaining! I love World Market’s selection of plastic glasses, cute floating cup holders, beverage dispensers, and more. Everything I have here is just the tip of the iceberg so check out everything World Market has to offer for your summer parties.

Modern Pop Whole Fruit Bars

Frozen pops are the quintessential summer treat and my daughter is obsessed with them. If it were up to her, she’d have one in each hand! But I always worry about the amount of sugar and artificial ingredients in many of the store-bought brands. And if I’m honest, I don’t want to bother with making them myself. That’s why I’m so glad I found Modern Pop. These delicious whole fruit bars have just 45-60 calories each and less sugar than an apple. They’re made by flash freezing real fruit so they keep all the healthy nutrients and delicious flavor of fresh fruit. Most importantly, there’s nothing artificial and no preservatives. You can find Modern Pop at Ralphs and other retailers nationwide.

Families everywhere will be setting out on road trips this summer and there’s  brand new technology that is a must have if you’re hitting the road. Raven is a new dashcam that turns any car into a smart car. It serves as the eyes and ears of your car and it’s basically every car gadget you could want all rolled into one! Raven helps with navigation, speeding alerts, real-time road advice, maintenance alerts and more. There are also dual facing cameras, which are important for road safety, but also great for capturing those funny family moments inside the car. With just the wave of a hand, you can go back and save a funny moment that just occurred. Anyone who isn’t on the trip can check in on their family members using the Raven app and even join in on the summer family fun. See Raven in action by clicking here

Beach Now

I think every family can agree that the worst part about a day at the beach is having to load up the car and lug all the heavy beach gear through the sand. Beach Now takes the hassle out of going to the beach with your very own beach concierge! Beach Now provides everything your family needs for the perfect summer family fun beach day. You get high-end beach loungers, towels, umbrellas, Bluetooth speaker, games like corn horn or oversized connect four, a cooler packed with flat and sparkling water, fresh fruit and so much more. You can even order food from local hotspots and have it delivered right to your chair. All you have to do is show up! Beach Now currently serves Venice Beach and is available for private events from the south bay to Malibu. Just make sure to book in advance!

Love Sun Body 100% Natural Mineral Sunscreens

It seems like every year we learn more information about how harmful many sunscreen brands are for our health and for the planet. That’s why I’m so glad Love Sun Body was created. It’s a new brand of sunscreen that is certified as being the highest quality and safest sunscreen available in the United States. Not only is it the best in the US, but it also meets the more stringent European Regulatory Requirements. Love Sun Body is kid safe, reef safe, vegan, hypoallergenic and won’t clog pores. I love using this on myself and my daughter because there are no ingredients that might sting her eyes and it doesn’t leave a thick white coating on her skin.
