Single motherhood






Hi, I'm a Kenyan-born, Colorado-based single mom to twins Hodari and Milambu. I turned the challenges of single motherhood into a thriving YouTube community and blog. Here, I offer support and practical advice on parenting, lifestyle, and more. Let's navigate life's complexities together!

As the sun’s warm rays grow stronger each day and the scent of blooming flowers fills the air, I can’t help but feel excited about the approaching summer. Even though the weather in Colorado can be unpredictable, I am determined to make the most of it and create unforgettable memories with my energetic and curious 3-year-old kids.

With their short attention span and endless energy, keeping them entertained can be a challenge. But I am up for the task and have been tirelessly searching for ways to satisfy their inquisitive minds and active bodies. I want to make sure they are having fun and staying engaged while I take care of other responsibilities around the house.

This year, I am taking it up a notch and have created a summer bucket list filled with over 60 thrilling activities for kids and toddlers. To help us keep track of everything we plan to do, I even designed a free printable that we can use to document our progress. I am determined to make this a summer that we will all cherish for years to come.

In this blog post, I am excited to share with you some of the most exciting and engaging summer activities for kids and toddlers that I have found. From outdoor adventures to indoor crafts and games, there is something for everyone on this list. I guarantee that these activities will keep your little ones happy, busy, and entertained all summer long.
