    Playing Bingo!!! My Guilty Pleasure…

    If you love playing games and you are a Bingo fanatic then you just might enjoy playing family games on weekends and/or going out just to play a good game of Bingo. I remember while growing up we would sneak off just to enjoy a good game of Bingo. Whenever someone shouts ‘Bingo’ it would bring a whole lot of excitement. We would play bingo for cash, prizes and surprises. Playing Bingo was always fun and it brought our entire community together. It was just a fun and exciting ‘guilty pleasure’ for me as we often sneak off just to play.

    Beat the Summer Heat with Splash Pad

    Dunns River falls Splash Pad
    The summer season is a very hot and long holiday. We often get hot and sweaty to the point where it becomes unbearable. There is no better way to enjoy the summer than going to the park to utilize the splash pad with your kids especially if your backyard is not equipped with a pool or even a garden hose and sprinkler. A splash pad is a great way to have fun and cool off during the summer heat.
    A splash pad is a recreation area or nursery playground that is often found in public park and/or adventurous areas. They are often surfaced with wetpour rubber flooring for water play that has little or no standing water. This eliminates the need for lifeguard supervision as it lowers the risk of drowning.
    Having a safe and secure environment for your little one is essential towards any child growth. It allows them to enjoy life while growing up and safety is important while using the splash pad during the summer heat.
    Splash Pads are created to be fun while economical at the same time. Adults can enjoy splash pads while supervising their child/children.
    Here are some tips to ensure that your child/children get full use of the splash pad while having fun at the same time:
    1.     Select a splash pad that has other attractions areas for the entire family to enjoy or utilize a splash pad in a family-friendly neighborhood.
    2.     Pack swim diapers for toddlers that are not potty trained; sanitary habits are important.
    3.     Bring along healthy snacks for energy and drinks for refreshments.
    4.     Protect your kids from the sun; make use of sunscreen.
    5.     Wear water shoes to prevent a slippery mess.
    During the hot summer season make use of the splash pad where your child can splash, play and cool down with their friends and others.

    How To Make This Summer The Best One Ever

    Summer’s here again. Every year is the same; you long for the sunny months, but then you have no idea how to best use your time as soon as the opportunity arises. You want to do everything, but you also want to relax and do nothing. It’s hard to find the perfect balance between those two perfect ways to enjoy summer, but the following pieces of advice might just give you inspiration as to how you could make this summer the best one ever.

    Spend time with friends and family.

    If you’ve booked time off work then it might be tempting to spend your relaxation time sitting in front of the TV and consuming endless summer entertainment, but the best entertainment summer has to offer is outside your front door. The best way to motivate yourself to get out there and explore everything the world has to offer is to spend some time with your friends and family. Maybe you could invite guests to stay that you don’t usually have the time to see. Show them your local area, or venture a little out of your comfort zone if you’re tired of seeing the same things and want to explore somewhere new. Just get out there, and soak up some rays.

    Look after your skin

    This is good advice all year round, of course, but there are certain changes you should make to your daily routine as soon as the sun comes out from hiding behind the clouds. Firstly, you should be looking after your skin by wearing sunscreen every time it’s bright outside. Perhaps there’s a breeze where you live or it doesn’t feel warm when you step outside, but the sun is deceptive, and it can still burn you if your skin isn’t protected from its harmful rays.

    Warm weather also dries out skin and dehydrates your body, so you should be looking into solutions such as hydrating facials as well as drinking water. This is about not only keeping your body happy and healthy on an internal basis but on an external basis too; your skin is very important, so you should be regularly moisturizing and hydrating it in order to look after yourself not just in terms of physical appearance but physical health.

    Take a vacation

    This is the most important part of summer, whether you’re jetting off to some beautiful foreign land or hitting the water park in the next town over. The important thing to remember is that a vacation isn’t something you can do in a right or wrong way; it’s a break, and that’s all it needs to be. You might want to go local because there’s a beautiful valley or town nearby that you’ve never properly explored.

    As long as you’re relaxing in the way you want to relax then you shouldn’t feel as if you’re not making the most of your summer vacation. Still, jetting off somewhere is always nice. Maybe you’re on the fence, but you could look into travel insurance too if you feel nervous about committing so much money to a trip when something could potentially go wrong (a canceled flight or a family emergency).

    Take up a hobby

    Summer can be exhausting (especially when you spend all day out there in the sun). You should be making the most of it, but you should also give yourself time to recover at the end of the day. This could be the opportunity to take up a relaxing hobby such as reading or writing. Look at the beautiful sun-soaked landscape and write a poem which details and captures the beauty you see before you.

    Group Travel Survival Tips To Keep Everyone Sane

    Is there anything more fun than going away on holiday with all your friends? Lots of teenagers and young women go abroad with their girlfriends every summer, as it is a great way to chill out together and forget about everyday life back at home.

    However, there is one big downside to group travel, even when you are traveling with your best friends, and that is there can often be a lot of disagreeing. As there will be a few of you on this vacation, you might find that some people want to do completely different activities to the others. Plus, there could be some disagreements when it comes to planning the trip in the first place!

    Don’t worry, though; here are my best survival tips for group travel.

    Go Self-Catered

    When you are trying to book accommodation for a large group, it is often a lot easier to go for a self-catered option. That’s because hotels might not have enough rooms available to accommodate you all for the duration of your stay. Plus, self-catered accommodation often works out a lot cheaper. There will also be the advantage of the flexibility that comes with self-catering. This then allows you to eat whenever you want, and you won’t be restricted by hotel mealtimes.

    Split Up All The Organizing

    There will be a lot that you have to book for your trip away with your friends, such as flights and accommodation. Depending on your destination, you might also have to sort out visas and other travel documents. You can find out more about visas and the application process at sites that answer Etias questions. As there is a lot to do, it’s a good idea to split up all these tasks evenly between everyone in your group. That way, someone doesn’t have to do everything themselves!

    Be Ready To Compromise

    As everyone in your group might want to do different things while on vacation, it’s important that you are willing to compromise on somethings. Everyone should get to do at least one thing that they want to while away, but you can’t please everyone all the time. Have a chat with everyone before you leave and explain that it’s important you all compromise on activities and other decisions. Otherwise, you could end up arguing quite a bit!

    Get Some You Time If Necessary

    For some of us, being with a group of people in such a short proximity for a few days could prove to be exhausting. After all, being sociable around the clock requires a lot of energy! So, if you ever feel like you need some time out away from everyone, don’t worry about getting some you time. You’ll be able to refresh your batteries and then return to the group with a lot more bounce!

    Traveling with friends is a really great opportunity and is definitely something that everyone should do at least once. Now you just have one big question to answer – where will you all go?!
