Staying Safe During Our Summer #Moms4JNJConsumer #ad

This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

We all know that play is good for us. It challenges us, stimulates us, develops creative thinking – and it’s just plain fun. During the summer, we love to go and find new places and things to explore with Mary. Actually, we do this year round as a part of our hands on home-school. We think learning is so much more than being crammed in a classroom all day so most of our home-school comes from learning about what's around you. And during the summer, we keep learning together.

Like last week when we went on a nature walk through our local national forest. We had a blast and learned a lot of things, but most of all, to always be prepared. Mary actually fell down and scraped her leg on the trail but it was a good thing we had essential first aid items on hand! After using them, we were back to walking and enjoying the gorgeous views!
