School is out and kids everywhere are celebrating! If you have kids like I do, you know that every summer is different. Once this summer passes, the next one will be you’re your children a whole year older.
The good news is, you don’t have to spend a fortune to make great memories. Here are some tips for at-home summer fun.
Not every day is sunny in the summer (plus some days are just too hot to go out). Playing card and board games are a great way to bond while developing useful life skills like fairness, analytical thinking, and patience.
Even if you feel guilty about letting your kids watch too much TV, time spent watching a movie together is different. You can laugh together, discuss important lessons, and enjoy the physical closeness of sitting together in front the screen.
You can do crafts any time of the year, but some crafts are best done outside. Let the kids go wild with paint, chalk, glitter, and whatever else you can think of. Cleanup is only a hose-down away.
Speaking of hoses, you don’t have to wait for an epic mess to have fun in the water. As long as there’s no drought, an occasional run (and slide and jump) through the sprinkler turns an unbearably hot day into memorable fun.
Camping in the backyard can be almost as much fun as camping in the forest (without the scary wildlife). If you can’t make it into the woods this summer, bring this outdoor adventure to your home.
Gardening can be a terrible chore or an amazing activity. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, your kids (especially little ones) will love an excuse to play in the dirt. And who knows? Your efforts might yield beautiful flowers or a side dish for summer barbecues.
You don’t have to wait for Halloween to dress the kids in costumes. Have them make their own and let their imaginations run wild. You could even have them put on a show for visiting extended family.
Harness your children’s imagination by having them put on a puppet show. Like the costumes, they can make their own and turn it into a family production for you or visitors.
You can let kids do this on their own or with your help. Turn it into a bonding opportunity that will develop fine motor skills and produce something to make everyone proud.
Regardless of what you choose to do with your kids this summer, the most important thing is to enjoy it. The years go quickly, even if the days seem long. Make them memorable.

The Perfect Gift for Mom?
by Angie Snow
With Mother’s Day soon approaching, my husband asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day. I am a very practical thinker and don’t really need extra gifts. So jokingly, I replied, “I want healthy kids and clean house!” Isn’t that what all moms want?
I’m very excited to share that there is a wonderful solution, and gift that will meet both of those demands! It’s a wonderful home comfort solution I use in my home, and it’s called an Air Scrubber.
The Air Scrubber protects your home by eliminating viruses, bacteria, mold, odors and harmful pollutants in the air and on surface areas. It goes beyond typical air purification systems by using certified space technology. In fact, it’s the only air cleaning technology that has been given the Space Certified Seal of Approval by the Space Foundation, in cooperation with NASA.
This innovative machine is professionally installed in the ductwork near your furnace. As the air and water molecules travel through the device, it transforms the molecules into super charged oxidizers that seek to destroy contaminants, fungi, mold and odor-causing bacteria. It’s very similar to how trees in nature clean the air that we breathe outside.
After having this device in my home, I feel confident knowing that the air in my home is fresh and clean. My family members with allergies find immediate relief in my home because of the reduced allergens in the air. My children tend to stay healthier and viruses do not spread. I also love it when I cook bacon and the odor it leaves behind is gone in about an hour. People with pets love the way it freshens their homes. Another huge bonus is that with the Air Scrubber, I only have to dust about once a month! The Air Scrubber clears the fine dust in my home.
The results are so amazing, that KSL’s Studio 5 will be featuring Western Heating and the Air Scrubber on their show tomorrow! Tune in to Studio 5 at 11am on Friday to watch! All mothers should enjoy these benefits so they can have peace of mind about their family’s health and well-being. Breathing fresh, clean air will improve your health and help you feel safe in your home.
Western Heating & Air Conditioning has installed hundreds of these units in Utah County and we get amazing feedback from our clients. From mothers of cancer patients… to fire evacuees, they are all so grateful for the protection the Air Scrubber provides.
As an added Mother’s Day ONLY bonus, the Certified Comfort Experts at Western Heating & Air Conditioning are offering a FREE Roomba (iRobot) with the purchase of an installed Air Scrubber. We have 12 Roombas available, so schedule your Mother’s Day Installation before they are gone! Call the experts at Western Heating & Air Conditioning at 801-375-COOL or visit www.TimeForComfort.com.
