There is just something about summer that feels special. The long sunshine-y days are just begging for adventures to be had and memories to be made. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that summer takes us back to our own childhoods and reminds us that the world is full of potential and wonder. When summer rolls around, it reminds me as a mom to stop and enjoy the little things and to create simple magic for my own little ones. Summer fun doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive to be magical though! Here are 6 fun and simple ways that we make summer a bit more magical around here!

I love talking to my baby in Spanish, but when it came time to singing him nursery rhymes, I realized I ONLY knew English nursery rhymes. I couldn’t sing one Spanish nursery rhyme to save my life (well, maybe only “Los Pollitos Dicen”). I tried to translate the English nursery rhymes myself, but that was a complete flop. For example, I mistakenly translated “the itsy, bitsy, spider went up the water spout” to “la araña pequeñita subio la alcantarilla,” which basically means the spider went up the sewer pipe … eww!
But luckily, I soon realized a DVD of English nursery rhymes I bought my son also had Spanish captions. Oh my excitement! And not only that, but it actually does a pretty good job of translating the songs. Here are Spanish lyrics to some of my favorite English nursery rhymes. No more trying to make up your own lyrics!
