Summer is my family’s favorite time of year. We get three months of the year to truly enjoy each other’s company without any obligations. No waking up early, no homework, just tons of fun. This summer we’ve got plans to hit the parks, hit the beach, and lounge around by the pool. On the rainy days, we love diving into crafts but with the summer fun comes the dirt and grime.
Summer Bedtime Routine Essentials
After our first summer, I learned very quickly that we needed a special arsenal of essentials to tackle our bedtime routine. With the help of Dial® products at Walmart, I can keep the whole family squeaky clean! One of the things I love about Dial products is that we can use them at home or on the go if we’re traveling.
If your kids are anything like mine, it’s hard to wrangle them to get them ready for bed during the summer. No one likes to go to bed early during the summer. Here are a few tips for getting your kids to bed on time with your favorite summer bedtime routine essentials.
1. Control their sleep environment
Keeping things the same every night are key to success. Things like the temperature, darkness, outside noise, etc. Blackout shades can be a major lifesaver when it comes to bedtime, especially during those summer months when it gets dark after bedtime.
2. Set a bedtime
Setting a summer bedtime can keep consistency for kids. Our summer bedtime is a little later than during the school year, but not much. We like to give a little extra time to enjoy the summer.
3. Give your child choices
Giving your kids choices can help avoid major breakdowns. Stick to giving them small choices like choosing their own pajamas or which bedtime story they want to read.
4. Wear them out
Wearing them out is the number one key to a successful summer bedtime routine. Take them outside to play during the day, watch their favorite movies, let them play with their friends, and break out the messy crafts. Cleaning up with Dial® Complete Foaming Hand Wash is super simple after. The foaming hand soap is #1 Dr. Recommended and kills 99.9% of bacteria, plus it’s mild enough for frequent use.
5. Stick to a bedtime routine
Having a consistent bedtime routine is great for kids! Make bath time fun with Dial® Kids Peachy Clean Body Wash. Even at the end of the messiest days, Dial® Kids can get rid of all of the grime. The sensitive formula is hypoallergenic, pH balanced and dye free, making it ideal for everyday washing. Your kids are guaranteed to love the playful peachy scent too.
