Fun Ways to Beat the Summer Heat

Shot through the heart! Good thing it's just water!

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?
