Summer is here and that means it's time to relish in all the fun it brings. From trips to the beach or playing in your very own backyard, summertime means fun time. Of course, it also means the sun will be shining, bringing hotter temperatures to your area. What better way to cool off than with a homemade popsicle? We love making our own popsicles not only is it a fun family activity, but because it ensures that we know exactly what's in them. From healthy fruit and even a sneaky vegetable or two, homemade popsicles are a great healthy snack for kids, and they're delicious, too. These seven popsicle molds come in great shapes and colors, your kids will love pulling them out of the freezer on a hot summer day!

Whether it's the beach or pool, in your own backyard or on vacation, spending time in the water is what summer is all about. Of course, water safety is of the utmost importance at any age. While you might be tempted to skip the pool with your infant all together, there are several baby floats that make swimming with your baby a fun and safe activity. These floats were specifically made with baby in mind, but under no circumstances should you ever leave your child unsupervised while they're in the water. Baby floats come in all shapes and sizes—many even include a sun canopy for extra protection. We've rounded up our picks of the best baby floats for a happy and safe summer!
School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
