We are smack in the middle of summer. Living in Florida, that usually means we are spending most of our time indoors, or at least we should be! Having a toddler, it is difficult to keep him cooped up all day, everyday. Sometimes I have to suck it up and get outside, even if it is close to 97 degrees outside! I love living in Southwest Florida. There are always tons of places and activities to keep Aidan busy, but we usually stick to about 4 essential summer outings.
4 Summer Outings For Toddlers
- Zoo: The zoo is our favorite place to visit. During the summer there is usually a discounted rate for local residents that we always try to take advantage of. Aidan’s latest trip to the zoo was a play-date with his friend Tobin. They had a blast looking at the lions and tigers and enjoyed a ride on the monkey boat, exploring the monkey islands together.
- Beach: This is a Southwest Florida staple. Usually, it is way too hot to enjoy a full day at the beach. When we venture out, we pack a cooler with tons of water and snacks and usually call it a day by early afternoon. The beach is perfect for getting toddlers nice and tired for a great afternoon nap!
- Park: We are very fortunate to have tons of great parks located all over the county that we live in, and each park has a specialty. The park closest to our house is an aquatic center. We bring Aidan there during the summertime for swimming lessons. Another local park has a wonderful trail with bicycle rentals and a kids splash park.
- Museum: Hands on children’s museums are fun for toddlers and their parents! We have a few of these museums in our area and Aidan enjoys spending time at all of them. Summer is a great time to get discounted admission at these museums, as well!
Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers and Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes are exclusive only at your local Costco Warehouse. The diapers are more absorbent than regular Snug & Dry Diapers, providing great leak protection for your baby or toddler. These diapers have worked great for us and the snug fit is great, especially for Aidan’s skinny little legs! I love the Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes, too. They are gentle and hypoallergenic, which is a huge deal considering his super sensitive skin. Since we are actively trying to potty train, it’s nice to have a thick wipe that can take care of a big mess. It’s great to have absorbent diapers and thick wipes with us during any of our summer outings!
