Inexpensive Ways to Stay Cool This Summer
Staying Cool this Summer Without Spending a Whole Lot
Summer is finally here! In addition to the fun family vacations and school-free days, the summer brings the heat. While children seem to not even be phased by how hot it is, it’s important to be smart about playing outdoors in the heat. In addition to monitoring your child’s sunscreen application and water intake, there are some creative ways to help your preschooler stay cool this summer. Check out these fun activities that will leave you dripping with cool water and happy memories!
Bring out the hose! – If you or a neighbor has a garden hose lying around you might be surprised at the fun that’s available to you. Not only can you use the hose as a make-shift sprinkler or simply hose each other down, you can also play a fun game of water limbo with the stream! Children love running through water in the hot sun and when you aim it just right, you can make a rainbow.
Balloon Fun! – Take a water balloon fight to the next level by filling up some of the balloons with shaving cream! This fun game is bound to leave children giggling as they slip and slide through the backyard, ducking and throwing to their heart’s content! With this game, however you might be trying to get hit! Remember – you are never too old for water balloons, so if you keep a few to douse your spouse or best friend, we won’t tell!
Backyard Bath time! – Mix-up your bedtime routine during the summer to include a bath outdoors for your infant or toddler. Fill up a kiddie pool in your back yard, bring out their favorite bath toys and soak up the remaining rays of the summer sun while getting squeaky clean. For added fun, splash in some bubble bath!
