Tips on how to make your home #ElectroluxSummerReady
Leading home appliances brand Electrolux is here to help moms get ready for the summer.
Now that summer is here and most of us are eager to beat the heat by going to the beach, enroll in a swimming class, hit the gym, book an out of the country summer escapade, or to just simply stay at home and prepare indoor fun for the hottest summer days with the kids. I prepare tips to make your summer enjoyable with your children in tow.
These activities are not only exciting, but yield some incredible keepsakes and memories with your loved ones
Make an iced candy or frozen ice pops together.
I remember the time when my mother and I make some iced buko for us kids every summer. It was fun and at the same time delicious and healthy.
Who doesn't love a cool, refreshing frozen ice pop?! Pick up some of your kids favorite fruits like a ripe mango, buco or some avocadoes. Just puree them and add yogurt or yakult for that extra kick in flavor. Scoop into ice pop molds or cups with sticks, or to an ice candy plastic, freeze until solid, and enjoy!
I love a strawberry yogurt ice pop -- mash strawberries and add yogurt, . Watermelon alone works well, too. Or just freeze a banana for a frosty treat.
Assign a "Clean the pantry" task with your kid
Go get a big trash bag and start removing all the canned and dry goods that have expired or has foul smell or molds in them. Get a damp sponge and clean away any debris that has accumulated. Organize the remaining items and check on dates and labels. Donate or give away cans that aren’t going to be used. This would teach your child hardwork and to get rid or dispose things that are not necessary in the house.

Guests presented tips on summer home design, as well as cleaning and organizing the home, and shared news on its latest appliances designed to help make your homes #ElectroluxSummerReady.
Electrolux Summer-Ready guest speaker Amina Aranaz-Alunan, founder, executive director and teacher of SoFA Design Institute, and Creative Director of fashion accessories and bag label ARANÁZ, shared her ideas on how to give homes a summer touch. I love how Amina is hands-on her home decoration. Her tips included accessorizing with items that have a hint of the sea or beach or adding a woven piece.
Another great way to give homes a summer makeover would be to bring a touch of nature. Aranaz described that moms can bring in tropical throw pillows, bedding, tropical indoor plants or even botanical wallpaper! She also suggested some stylish DIY projects that moms can do with the family like framing a tropical print, creating a bar cart or summer vignette.
Meanwhile, Janice Villanueva, successful mompreneur and founder of Mommy Mundo, a community of moms dedicated to making motherhood easier, shared her Summer-Ready Checklist, with hacks on keeping the home clean and clutter-free and fun summer activities for the family.
For the kitchen, Villanueva talked about the importance of cleaning out the refrigerator, including all compartments and interiors, throwing out expiring food and restocking on fresh food, including a mix of different kinds of foods that kids will like.
She advised moms to put these in easy to access containers so the kids (if age appropriate) can help themselves when they’re hungry.
Villanueva also reminded moms to sit down with the helpers to plan a menu since kids will be home all day – and to make sure they have healthy morning snacks and a filling merienda so kids don’t grab junk food in between.
When it comes to cooking, homemakers should make sure to clean the kitchen stove top and oven to make sure things are running properly. Cooking or baking sessions with the kids are also a great summer activity that teaches them a new skill while allowing moms to bond with them.
