We have been having a great summer so far, and doing everything we can to keep cool and take advantage of the summer sun.
We are lucky to have gracious neighbors that let us come over and swim in their pool, but what to do on those triple digit days, when hanging out in the AC has the kids bouncing off the walls?
Here are 5 fun ways to keep cool without a pool:
1. Water balloons. I thought everyone knew about these, but I came across a few parents recently that didn’t! If you haven’t picked up a pack of the Bunch-O-Balloons, you should! You can quickly fill up hundreds of balloons at a time, and they self tie. The way kids go through water balloons, it’s the only way to do it!
2. Splash Potato. My kids love to play this fun game. It’s like hot potato, but you put a water balloon in it, and when the timer goes off it pops!
5. Splash Pads. Check out your local parks, or mom groups for recommendations on splash pads and pools in your area. There are at least 10, within 20 minutes of our house, and many are free or less than $5 to enter and play all day!
I hope this has inspired you to get outside this week! We will be outdoors, and eating all the watermelon and freeze pops we can handle.
Stay cool, and leave your summer water ideas in the comments below.
