Want a fun way to connect with your kids this summer? Join the Awesome Perfectly Me Girls Summer Connection Challenge!

Awesome Perfectly Me Girls was created by Baltimore mom Raquel Gilmer. Her mission is to foster self-awareness, self-love, and self acceptance in girls and women of all ages through our relevant resources, innovative programs, and transformational activities. Thus the Awesome Perfectly Me Girls comic series was born. The series features six different girl heroes, each empowering girls to be strong, smart, kind, compassionate, fearless, and awesome

One hero? Casey the Connector, who is on a mission this summer to encourage positive family interaction at this time of year. Families everywhere are invited to join Casey and the other Awesome Perfectly Me Girls during the Summer Connection Challenge.

The challenge? Spend 5 (screen free!) hours a week with your kids this summer. We know. 5 hours both sounds like too little and too much at the same time. With swim team, play dates, dance lessons, summer sports, tutoring, camp, work, household stuff, birthday party shuffles… families are busy! Luckily the experts at Perfectly Me Awesome Girls have developed a plan to help families succeed during the challenge.

On their Summer Connection Challenge Facebook Group, you’ll find inspiration and resources for creating memories and strong bonds with your kids. Think daily conversation cards and photo inspiration from other families participating in the challenge. There are also fun tracking sheets (find them in group files) which provide you with the opportunity to not only track your time but also write a little bit about the activity and share your favorite moments of the week. 

Everyone who completes the challenge and shares the completed tracking sheets with Awesome Perfectly Me Girls is automatically entered into a raffle to win a free Awesome Perfectly Me Girls SuperValues Subscription Box (the new subscription box service launches this fall!). 

What are you waiting for? Join the challenge! And be sure to tell them (cool) progeny sent you!
