Kids bored this summer? Here are a few fun, thrifty and fast ideas to get their little brains working!
Boredom Buster #1- Make a recipe book.
Help your children think of their three or four favorite meals, desserts, and snacks.
Using recipe cards, or even colored cardstock help them write out each recipe in detail. Go to the store and allow your child to purchase the ingredients needed. Then, for the next few days let them help you make the recipes for your family!
Not only is this a great way to help entertain your child, but it also helps them long term by learning to plan shopping lists, grocery shop and make their favorite foods!
Take a few fun pictures of your child preparing the food! Place the recipe cards in a binder or memory book along with a few of the pictures for them to keep! Now you have a recipe book for them to use a resource when they move away to keep forever!
Boredom Buster #2 – Lemonade Stand
Lemonade stands are not just for lemonade! Brownies, cookies, Rice Krispie treats, or many other baked goods are also a big hit with neighborhood kids! But, why stop there. Snowcone machines or cotton candy machines can be purchased at a reasonable price and will be quite a hit!
Make sure your child has a safe, visible spot for cars to see as they pass by. They can make banners, signs or flyers beforehand to help create more customers!
Once your child has made some money, this is a great opportunity to help them learn money management and to be responsible. The next time they want to open their lemonade stand, have them help with the expenses and learn about running a business.
Boredom Buster #3 – Put on a Play or Musical
Children love to be the center of attention. Help your child get their creative juices flowing by suggesting they gather up their friends and put on a play! Find some classic storybooks or let them come up with a whole new concept.
Writing out the play, gathering costumes from family members closets and even experimenting with makeup or hair can make the summer very fun and memorable! Let them use props from the house, get some building supplies such as large cardboard boxes or old pallets and create scenery! This could mean hours of fun and planning for your kids this summer!
At Lice Clinics of America, we value relationships. Taking time to ensure your children have fun, enriching experiences this summer is a win-win for everyone! Here’s to hoping your summer is safe and memorable!
Your home is your safe place. When you discover it is infested with head lice panic can ensue! Rest assured, cleaning up after head lice is possible! Here’s a quick guide to help you do it properly.
Step 1- Wash Bedding
Remove all bedding. This includes mattress covers, pillows, pillowcases and even stuffed animals that could have come into contact with head lice or nits, eggs. Large items can be taken to a laundry mat to be washed. Or, they can be stuffed into large garbage bags and left for 72 hours.
Head lice and nits need a human host to live. If they wander onto an item, such as a stuffed animal or pillow they will not survive past 24 hours. Eggs as well will dry out and die if not on a human scalp past 24 hours. Some experts recommend bagging items for a week or two to make sure, but honestly, that seems excessive as head lice or nits will be long gone after 24 hours.
Blankets, pillows, sheets, and other washable items should be soaked, washed and dried in high heat temperatures reaching at least 130 degrees. Dry cleaning is also an effective approach that will kill head lice and eggs. It is important to act fast, whichever method you choose.
Step 2 – Wash Clothing
Sometimes the bedding and blankets are obvious to parents to clean, and the clothing of children is overlooked. Items such as hats, coats, jackets, scarves or even towels recently used an harbor head lice or nits. Wash all items properly and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes to prevent spreading.
Step 3 – Sanitize Hairbrushes and Accessories
All items used on the hair or scalp need to be collected, have all hair strands removed, and disinfected. This includes brushes, combs, hair ties, hair clips, headbands, or accessories. One easy method is to throw everything on the top shelf of a dishwasher. Run it through a normal cycle. But beware, high heat settings can cause plastic items to melt.
Another good option is to boil a pot of hot water and soak items for at least five minutes. Other people use rubbing alcohol, soaking items in it overnight fully immersed will thoroughly disinfect hair items. There is no need to throw them away. These methods will quickly and easily make them safe to reuse.
Step 4- Wipe Down and Sanitize Furniture
Any chairs or couches that could have eggs or head lice should be scrubbed with warm wet cloths. If the surface is hard or leather, we recommend a cleaner such as bleach or Lysol that will not damage the furniture. However, hot water and soap with a little bit of elbow grease should do the trick.
For regular fabric furniture, vacuum the area thoroughly. This is an effective way of killing possible head lice and eggs laying around the couches or chairs.
Step 5- Thoroughly Vaccum Floors
Now that your furniture and bedding are head lice free, carefully and meticulously vacuum the carpet. This is a good way to make sure that any head lice or nits that could’ve been knocked off while cleaning are removed from the home. Remove the vacuumed contents into an outside trashcan.
Can I Just Fumigate My Home Instead?
No. Fumigation, fog insecticides or pesticides of any kind are not recommended in removing lice and eggs from your home. Sometimes harmful toxins from these chemicals can be inhaled or absorbed into the skin posing a health threat to your family and pets. A thorough, deep cleaning is the most effective, safe way to proceed.
Are my pets at risk?
No. Pets do not play any role in carrying or transmitting head lice.
Summer is finally here! Swimming pools, ice cream cones, and lemonade stands are in full swing! Kids are super excited to attend summer camps with their sports teams, bands, church groups or friends that share similar interests.
Did You Know?
Summer camps are an $18 billion a year industry. What better way to help your kids cultivate interests, develop skills or make new friends than sending them to a fun summer camp?
According to summer camp resources, more than 14,000-day camps are running across the United States every day. Half that many provide overnight experiences for kids. This provides hours of fun for over 14 million kids every summer! What does that mean for head lice?
Summer Camp Head Lice Outbreaks
Warm, humid environments with lots of children close together equals head lice. Lice Clinics of America has the opportunity to help. We provide head lice checks for several summer camps in the local area. By doing this, we can screen kids on the first day of camp and supply camp administration with proper treatment in case a head lice infestation is found.
If your camp does not provide screening, send your child equipped with knowledge. Most kids won’t give head lice a single thought. Talk to your child about sharing pillows, blankets, hats or even jackets with other children. Make sure they know to use their own hairbrushes and accessories.
Most often though, head lice are passed on through direct head to head contact. Which, honesty is almost impossible to prevent between close friends at summer camp. With that being said, check your child before and after camp to ensure they don’t bring home any unwanted stragglers. Not sure what to look for? Bring them into our Lice Clinics of America for a head lice check.
Camp Policy and Procedures
Before you send junior off to summer camp, contact the adults in charge and ask about head lice policies. Will they be performing head lice screenings? Is there an on-site nurse who is aware of symptoms and signs? If they do not have a plan set up, suggest screening and treatments being provided for those needing them. Stopping the problem from the get-go is the best way to prevent an outbreak.

Here are a few tidbits of information that can help you along your head lice journey.
1. Lice Can Infect Anyone
Head lice are not more often found in dirty or clean hair. In fact, studies done show that head lice are equal opportunity human parasites. Unless of course, you have no hair. Bald heads have no risk of getting head lice. There is no correlation between hygiene and contracting head lice. Except, hygiene can play a large role in how quickly you are able to be rid of head lice.
Head lice affect all races and are genetically equipped to hang onto human hair strands with a tight grip that makes them very difficult to remove. However, we more commonly see girls with head lice than boys, which is probably just because they usually have longer, flowing hair that is more easily infested than short hair from boys.
2. Your Child Has Probably Had Lice For a While
Head lice symptoms will usually take at least three to four weeks to manifest. This is because once head lice infect a head, they need 7-9 days for their first eggs to start hatching. The average head lice infection is not discovered until there are at least 15-20 adult lice on the scalp. The first sign is itching. Head lice leave traces of saliva each time they take a bite and suck blood from the scalp. This saliva is actually what people show allergic reactions to, causing itchiness on the scalp. Most often head lice are found on the crown on the head, behind the ears, and the back of the neck. Check these places of signs of red bumps, or bite marks that could indicate head lice.
3. Head Checks Are The Best Way To Detect Lice
The sooner you find lice, the sooner you can get rid of them, preventing them from spreading to anyone else. Nobody wants to be the reason for a lice outbreak at school. The only way to catch lice early on is to perform head lice checks at home and to do it often. Get a nitpicking comb to sift through hair, and be sure to check the crown of the head, behind the ears and the nape of the neck. This is where head lice tend to hang out. Do it weekly if they are young and daily if there’s an outbreak at school. One of the most common mistakes we see is that parents don’t check the adults in a home for head lice. We are seeing much more head lice in teens and adults as a result. Make sure all family members are screened before you declare your home head lice free.
Here at the Lice Clinics of Texas we know that kids love to play quiz games! Here’s a list of fun facts to see how much they actually know about everyone’s favorite summer holiday, the Fourth of July. How did our country come to celebrate with fireworks?

Kids love summer time! Kids love swimming! What could be more fun than summertime pool parties with their friends and family? Kids look forward to this time of year all long. In Texas, the intense heat can make hanging out at the pool all day really tempting. Mix that with ice cream, music, friends and your kids can be having the best summer ever. Kids together, getting close alongside the pool. What does that mean for head lice?
Can Swimming Spread Head Lice?
Research shows us that head lice are capable of surviving underwater for several hours. This is because they are equipped to hold tightly to human hair and not let go when put under the water. If knocked loose, a louse is able to float at the top of the water and hold it’s breath for several hours, hoping for a new host to pop by.
Is it likely that head lice can be spread through a swimming pool? It can happen, but not often. How then is head lice most often passed on while swimming? This answer is the same as in most other scenarios we find our children in. Through direct head to head contact with another child who carries head lice.
Head lice are also often passed along through the sharing of personal items, such as towels, hair brushes, hats, or similar items that could be left along the poolside or in a pile of children’s belongings.
Doesn’t Chlorine Kill Head Lice?
The simple truth, no. Head lice are able to survive in pool chlorine water and wait for another head to call home. So, pool water is definitely not a form of lice treatment. In fact, simply shampooing and bathing will not eliminate head lice either. They are designed to grip tightly onto human hair strands and withstand the force of the water and soap being pushed all around them. This is why more extreme measures need to be taken to ensure head lice are gone. This also explains why head lice are not more prone to dirty or clean hair. They are equal opportunity pests.
Don’t Swim Within 1-2 Days of Some Head Lice Treatments
If you are using shampoo or powder products to treat head lice, take caution! Swimming or washing the hair within 1-2 days after most of these treatments will make them less effective. In fact, we recommend a whole different approach, to begin with. The AirAllé® (pronounced air-a-lay) is an FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and 99.2 percent of lice eggs in a single, one-hour treatment. This device is used by lice-removal professionals around the world to provide a safe, fast and highly effective lice treatment. You can find it at Lice Clinics of America, along with a friendly staff to help you ensure you are properly treating your head lice problem.
Head lice are creepy critters that make all of us feel icky! Did you know that when the summer months hit we usually see a spike in head lice outbreaks? This is due to the fact that kids are hanging out on vacations, summer camps, sports camps, band camps, around swimming pools, camping in their own back yards, or even just playing outside together more often.
Every year in the United States up to 12 million children between the ages of 6-12 will contract head lice according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Adults or teens living with these young children are at a higher risk for catching head lice also. As the summer break hits parents or older kids might be snuggling up under the stars to make s’ mores with their favorite little buddies, or spending some time cuddling while watching their favorite Disney movie. Before you know it a small head louse has crawled from your little ones head to yours!
Do head lice jump or fly?
No. Head lice are perfectly equipped to crawl through human hair strands. They do not have wings and can not jump.
There are many different types of lice that are inflicted on different animals or parts of the body. The head louse, or Pediculus humanus capitis, is a parasitic insect that can be found on the head, eyebrows, and eyelashes of people. Head lice feed on human blood several times a day and live close to the human scalp. Head lice are not known to spread disease.
These lice are not a risk to animals or other parts of the human body because their body is made up to grasp human hair. They are not able to grasp thicker or differently textured hair. If hair found on the pubic area, or an animal, for example, were exposed to head lice they would be unable to fit their claws around it and infect the area or animal.
Just how do head lice move from head to head?
Each of their six claws are attached to the bottom of their legs, in place of feet. The claws work together with a small, spiky thumblike spine that is also connected to the bottom of their feet allowing them to grasp. Like a skilled circus acrobat, this enables head lice to gracefully move from hair strand to hair strand with little effort and surprisingly quick.
Other forms of lice are equipped to grasp onto different sizes of hair. For example, specific species of lice have claws that enable them to move through bird feathers with ease, while the human head lice would be unable to grasp it.
As two heads are pressed together under any circumstance, an adult louse can easily grasp onto the new head of hair and make a new home on its next human host. Female lice will than lay their eggs, or nits, on the base of a single hair strand very near the scalp. These eggs are glued onto the hair with a secretion that makes them sturdy and safe for the nit. The humidity and warmth from the human host give the nit an ideal environment to grow and hatch. In as a little as 7-9 days, new lice will begin hatching and creating a home on the new scalp.
Because of their strong claws and agility, head lice are also easily able to hang onto items that the head may have rested on. Pillows, blankets, fabric on a movie theater seat, the lining of a helmet, or any other such areas are all places head lice could be hanging out, waiting for a new host.
How can you get head lice from hats or pillows?
If a louse is knocked off of a head or crawls off of the head, they have 24 hours at the most to find a new host, or they will simply die. Without the head source or blood source of a human, they will not live longer than that.
In recent years, scientists John Clark and his team at the University of Massachusetts have tested head lice in nearly every state in the country. They have proven that head lice are now showing strong immunities to over the counter lice treatments, such as natural insecticides and pyrethrins. Because of this overwhelming resistance to lice products, the head lice problem we see today is on the rise.
Lice Clinics of America offers a solution. The technology we use allows us to dehydrate the head lice and eggs on the scalp in as a little as 90 minutes. A single session can eliminate the need for shampoos, nitpicking or harsh chemical products that others try to get rid of their head lice problem. We want to help you be head lice free! Call our office today to schedule head lice checks for your family.

Head lice are human parasites that feed on small amounts of blood from a human host. Lice have six small legs with claws on the tip that make them experts at attaching to hair strands and making their way around a head of hair.
Although it is always possible to catch head lice, even in the winter months, head lice do seem to spike during the warmest months of the year. But why? Most likely because children are spending more close time together. Summer camps, family trips, sports camps or any other activities that bring kids together can mean more head lice outbreaks.
Head lice also thrive in human climates. They prefer moist, damp environments which are usually around the base of the head where the neck meets the hairline. Summertime sweating can create a welcoming environment for head lice on anyone’s scalp.
Searches for head lice or head lice treatment are up about 25% in the summer months versus winter months. For this reason, it’s always a good idea, no matter what the weather is doing, to remember what to watch for!
–Talk to summer camps or sports camps about how they are dealing with possible head lice infestations. Often time, no one even thinks of the possibility before hosting a camp. Contact the counselor in charge and suggest possible head lice checks in the camp that could do a lot to prevent spreading. Lice Clinics of America offers head lice checks for local camps.
-Talk to your kids about not sharing pillows, blankets, hats, hairbrushes, or any other items with cousins, friends, or teammates that could give them head lice. The average person who has head lice has 10-15 adult lice on their scalp. Female head lice lay about 10 eggs per day. You can see how quickly the problem can escalate! Nits are often transferred from person to person from these personal items. When in doubt, machine wash items in hot water to ensure all nits or head lice are removed. Thoroughly vacuum and disinfect items or carpets as well to remove traces of nits or head lice.
-Make sure your children are protected by nitpicking through their hair and watching for signs of head lice. This means running a comb through their hair strands and watching for nits, rashes, or bite marks. The fecal matter from head lice can cause allergic reactions on the scalp. The rashes and irritation you are seeing is a result of that and the saliva from bite marks, as well.
-Stay vigilant as a parent. Some kids have trouble sleeping due to itchy scalp or the sensation of head lice crawling during the night, as they are more active during the night. Others might just start scratching incessantly. Sometimes it’s hard to catch head lice before it becomes a big problem. Keep a watchful eye for early signs.
-Contact Lice Clinics of America if you have any questions or concerns about head lice. We offer head lice checks to show you what symptoms to look for and how to nitpick properly. We also offer the latest, most effective head lice removal treatments available on the market.
