We are officially in the summer swing! Wherever you are, you are probably dealing with some pretty hot and/or humid weather. Add in your kids, and the days can seem miserable. Here are some fun ways to stay cool this summer:
Go somewhere indoors with A/C. Whether it’s the mall, IKEA, the movies, a museum, or the library, make a fun outing out of it while also managing to stay cool. You can even get some errands done too!
Get some water guns. Make a game out of it and you have a fun way to stay cool with your kids! Also acceptable are a sprinkler or spray hose if you have a backyard, otherwise spray bottles with a fan for you city folk may be more your style.
Go to a spray park. They should have these all over, oftentimes next to or near a playground. You can probably find a list of them on a local website. Some friends have even attested to bathing their kids there so there’s no need for a shower when you get home! #genius
Eat cold things. Popsicles, ice cream, watermelon, lemonade--these are all fun treats that are part of summer memories! You can even make your own popsicles to change things up or make them a little healthier. Don’t forget that pitcher of sangria for the adults!
Summer is a great season to build lasting memories with your kids. Outdoor picnics, concerts, BBQs and backyard campfires with s'mores are just a few things we’re looking forward to doing this summer with them. What else do you have on your summer bucket list?
