We're geared up for summer with Melissa & Doug. Next week school ends and we head to Bermuda with the kiddos. We'll be toting these cool sand toys from Melissa & Doug.

Girl 1 gets the Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Sand Cupcake Set ($12.15). Thankfully we've gotten beyond the sand eating stage, but we won't get past the digging in sand stage. This set was the hottest thing at the playground.

Girl 2 gets the Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Sand Baking Set ($12.39). Starting a bake shop on the beach can keep the kiddos busy for a long stretch. This colorful set is perfect for a sunny playdate.

After we get back, we'll be heading to some camps. Maybe camp isn't for you, for those DYIers out there, here's something to consider: Melissa & Doug'??s '??Virtual'? Camp. Camp Sunny Patch just kicked off this month.


Melissa & Doug have set out with ideas to answer the eternal question: '??What will we do today?'? Melissa & Doug are offering a week-by-week activity guide to a summer full of active, imaginative play. Hosted at, Camp Sunny Patch casts a team of star Blog Ambassadors as '??camp counselors.'? The counselors host themed '??camp sessions'? in categories such as water play, arts & crafts, scavenger hunts and other camp favorites, through free printable play guides. Head here to get started.

How it works: Families can print and post monthly calendars, available exclusively on the Melissa & Doug blog and to email subscribers, for a taste of what each month will hold. Then each week you download a session guide to delve into greater detail of the activity ideas, games, crafts and much more. The blog even features printable camp badges! In addition, optional camp-themed surprises will be available throughout the summer on Facebook and Twitter. Free fun for everyone!
