Big Honkin’ Summer Fun at Target

Big Honkin Summer logo


Target is the destination for everything families need to make the most of summer and to prove it Target sent a few bloggers a “Big Honkin’ Summer” kit to review.  Target has items to keep your family occupied whether you are traveling to the beach, mountains, or having a staycation.  Target has all the essentials for you to make the most of your summer.  If you’ve been in a Target store recently, you may have noticed the giant beach balls, sunglasses, and sand buckets that lead you directly to their brightly colored summer merchandise.


Here are the items that I received to review and check out Target’s kid catalog where you can find all of these products and more for summer:


  • Kid Made Modern Printed Tape Set – $6.99
  • Kid Made Modern Board Book Kit  – $14.99
  • Toy Golf Club with Ball Set – $2.99
  • Giant Badminton Set – $7.99
  • Lemonade Stand Banner – $2.00
  • Lemonade Stand Money Box – $3.00
  • Lemonade Stand Sign – $4.00
  • Lemonade Stand Juice Container – $6.00
  • Lemonade Stand Ice Bucket – $6.00

We fired up the grill, gathered about ten different couples and their kids and we had a big honkin’ pink lemonade party!  The Giant Badminton set was my personal favorite as it reminded me of playing in the yard as a kid.  The Kid Made Modern Board Book Kit & Kid Made Modern Printed Tape set are adorable and could keep kids busy for quite a while.  The Toy Golf Club with Ball Set was probably a favorite with the kids.  Even when they weren’t “playing”  you could always see one kid carrying it around.

The Lemonade Stand Banner, Money Box, Sign, Juice Container, & Ice Bucket were all used at the party and will probably be used over and over again for summers to come.  I was surprised how well each piece was made for being so inexpensive.  We colored the lemons on the banner and the sign with a pink Sharpie to make them look like pink lemonade.  I can’t help it, I’m girly!  : )

Summer is my favorite season and it always seems to go by so fast.  Sometimes I honestly can’t believe how fast time flies!  Can you believe my little girl just had her first birthday?  {She’s the one above in yellow}  In hopes that summer won’t pass me by so quickly this year I’m trying to slow down and make the most of every moment.  Our family has a few weekend trips planned but for the most part we’re staying home and enjoying homemade ice cream, watching fireflies, playing in the yard, grilling out, taking walks in the evening and well, just spending time together.  Target makes it easy to have a Big Honkin’ Summer without leaving town.

    That stuff is SO cute! Every time I am at Target I look at it & want to buy it but my son is too young to use it for a lemonade stand, so I LOVE your idea of using it as a party theme!
