August is finally here, and with it comes the back-to-school woes for the kids! But with still a few weeks left of summer break, it’s not too late for some last-minute summer fun. With plenty of things to do with your kids before school starts, here are a few of my musts!
Check out these 3 things to do with your kids before school starts!
1. Check out Bump & Beyond for cute and functional back-to-school supplies.
It’s time for back to school and you know what that means! Yes, time to gather school supplies. The Bump & Beyond is one of my favorite local shops and mom-community where I can purchase fun and functional gear for my little one. You name it and they have it! Visit The Bump & Beyond for cute backpacks, lunch boxes and more!
2. Visit the Raleigh-Durham Life & Science Museum!
If you’re looking for a quick getaway or a mini-vacation before school starts, the Raleigh-Durham Life & Science Museum is the place for you! With over 84-acres of fun things to discover, a two-story interactive science center, over 60 species of live animals and more makes this one of the best spots for family fun! Check out some of the feature exhibits like the magic wings butterfly house where the kids can walk with hundreds of tropical butterflies. If that’s not your cup of tea, check out the dinosaur trail exhibit where the whole family can discover life during the age of the dinosaurs! It’s a little over two hours from Wilmington, so I like to stay the night in Raleigh to get the most out of the visit.
3. Stop by Manta’s Cuts to clean up that summer shag.
With school just around the corner and fall picture day top of mind, it’s the perfect time to get that summer shag cleaned up. Stop by Wilmington’s top kids salon, Manta’s Cuts for a fun and memorable experience for the kids! Manta’s Cuts was created by a local mother with two young boys who spent a ton of time researching and creating a unique children’s salon. Oh, and here’s a bonus: you can also get a cut and style while your kid plays on the indoor shipwreck!
Bonus–this one is just for you! Treat yourself to a massage or treatment at Ki Spa & Salon before the school year starts.
Ok moms, before all of the back-to-school hustle and bustle starts, let’s not forget about you! Treat yourself to a massage or other spa treat at Wilmington’s Ki Spa and Salon! Trust me, you wont regret taking advantage of some sweet time to yourself before the school year fills up with parent nights, school plays, little league sports and more! You can even check out the Spa Promotions for a special discount on your visit!
Of course, with the fall season fast approaching, make sure you don’t forget about those cherished fall family photos for your holiday cards! If you’re interested in booking a fall family session, contact me to make it happen!
