I’m Having a Big Honkin’ Summer with Target

My favorite season is Summer. It wasn’t always my favorite, but since my son has been in school, it is. Because the summer is when I have him here most every day. I know most parents can’t wait for school to start back, but it always makes me sad. I enjoy every day… every minute I spend with my son. This is where Target’s Big Honkin’ Summer comes in.

I always go to Target at the beginning of my son’s summer break to shop for new games or toys to help keep him entertained. And this summer, Target has helped to make our summer a big honkin’ summer!

How do you ask? Well let me tell ya… Target sent us a huge goodie box of stuff. By stuff, I mean, fun things to entertain any child outside or inside during the summer.

What fun can be had with these great items. My son (and by my son, I also mean my hubby and I, too) loves the Giant Badminton Set. It really is cool, especially since I am the undefeated champion at the moment. Hey, I’m competitive, what can I say?

Target's Golf Club and Golf Balls

My son likes the Golf Club and balls and thinks he’d like to try his hand at real golf, now.

Target's Board Book Kit

The Kid Made Modern Board Book Kit was a great project. Especially for my budding writer. He has already written a book that won an award in our state. This time he wanted to make a board book for two of his little cousins (one a girl and one a boy)… and I know they’re going to love them. Shhhh, it’s a surprise.

He’s already asked for the Comic Book Kit.

Target's Duct Tape Kit
Target’s Duct Tape Kit allows you to make a messenger bag & a wallet… plus whatever your imagine will allow.

We haven’t made the messenger and wallet yet with the Kid (and in my opinion, adult) Made Modern Printed Tape Set yet.  We’re waiting on a rainy day. This will be a great project to do when we can’t go outside. Once we do, I’ll update with a photo.

Target's Lemonade Stand items
Target’s Lemonade Stand items… my son can’t wait to see how much money he can make

Okay, I don’t have a photo of my son having his Lemonade Stand up yet, because I’m having a big yard sale the first of August, and I’m letting him set it up then. So I’ll update this post with pictures of it once we do it. But he is excited about making himself some money. Really, excited!

You can really have so much fun with the Big Honkin’ Summer items at Target. Target is definitely the destination for all the things you need to make your summer fun!

Check out the “Summer-izer” Facebook app on Facebook.com/Target where you and your kids can add ‘Big Honkin’ Summer’ icons to photos and then share them online or print them out at your local Target Photo Center.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Target and received products to facilitate my review and thank me for taking the time to participate.
