Summer + Sun = Shades!

The sun is really bright during those hot summer months. The sun is actually closer to us in the summer, that is why the days are longer, the sun is hotter, and the rays are more dangerous. We all know it is important to protect our kids with hats, sunblock, and clothing with SPF and UPF protection. Did you also know that it is important to protect your kids’ eyes from the harsh rays of the sun?

A lot of people think that sunglasses just protect us from the glare of the sun, making it easier to see outside. But they also protect us from the harmful rays that can damage our eyes. This is an important issue amongst us all, not just adults. Sometimes we see kids with sunglasses on and we think, “oh how adorable” or “wow their parents must have money to burn.” But the fact is that they are a necessary tool for sun protection. While everyone likes to be stylish, they also serve a greater purpose.

Here at The Boy’s Store, we worry about the well-being of our customers. So we are here to offer you items that will help you protect your boys from the suns harmful rays, including sunglasses. We even offer sunglasses that are easy on the budget.

Shop these shades and more:

Backyard Camping

Summer is a great time to unplug and unwind. The days are long, the nights are short, and so is our time with our kids. It can be difficult to find activities that do not cost a lot of money, especially when we consider how long the summer break lasts. That’s why it is great to find fun outdoor activities that do not cost money, but they still give us the chance to get outside and interact with our kids.

Backyard camping is a fun and inexpensive activity for the summer. You can create a world of adventure with just a few items.

What you will need:

  • Tent
  • blankets or sleeping bags
  • food
  • campfire or firepit
  • flashlights

With just a few items you can create a world of enchantment. Tell stories around the fire, share a meal, a treat, and enjoy each others company. Leave all of the devices in the house and enjoy your time together without the distractions of modern life.
