JULY 5th is National Bikini Day!
Of COURSE you can choose to make it Bikini Day any day you choose.
Pancakes, waffles & toast can all be cut into triangles & placed on the plates to look like bikinis! Cheese, sliced deli meats & pita breads all could too! What about two fried eggs for the top & bacon strips made into the bottoms! Or just bikini briefs for the men in your life, this is all in the name of fun!
Using what’s available in your house or you may need to get a few things from the store.
Paper, pencils, crayons, markers, stickers, paint or pastels. Cut out triangles of all shapes & sizes, add any size & shape ribbons for the ties. Cut out the same from fabrics. Use this template to make paper doll chains, decorate each one with a different bikini!
Already on your shelf, get it from the library or borrow it from a friend.
This section will be back in September xo
Time spent together doing something that acknowledges the day.
Talk to your child about summer time comfort in bathing suits. What feels best on their bodies, not only in shape & size but in colour & patterns? As parents we are looking for protection & suitability for the adventures they need them for, it’s a great time to actually have them think about bathing suits as another form of personal expression. Do they feel cooler & more free in a bikini? Or in bikini briefs only? Or does being in a full piece in full floral have them feel more comfortable. It’s fun to ask & to see what would really have them feel their best.
Doing fun things with our children creates a deeper connection with them.
With deeper connection we create opportunities to talk, to laugh & to be seen experiencing joy, which is so important! Love, Stacey
