Simple and Surprising Twitter Party

This party’s hashtag has been updated!

Summer vacation may be coming to an end, but the summer heat is here to stay!  Many locations are just as hot in August and September as they are in June and July, so it remains important for parents to keep their children safe during this summer heat.  Please check out my tips for how to keep the kids safe during hot summer and early fall activities including water safety, hydration and more. Visit to not only learn more, but also enter to win a giveaway sponsored by Clorox.

Be sure to also check back in the future as other guest bloggers share their tips and featured giveaways.  There will also be upcoming Clorox sponsored Twitter events, so be sure to keep an eye on!  This giveaway ends 9/8 at midnight EST.
