For many people, June is the hottest month of the year. The sun is blazing like nobody’s business, and although we all need some vitamin D, there comes a point where we need to find ways to stay cool in the heat of summer. But the thing is, for many of us its summer break. Not only do we want to find ways to get relief from the sun, but we want to have fun while doing it.
Therefore, today I have listed 5 fun (and practical) methods for staying cool in the summer.
Create a Slip and Slide in Your Backyard
Just in case you don’t have a pool, but you still want to have some fun with water, why not set up a slip and slide. Not only do they give the entire family a chance to get the “water slide” experience, but you can also choose between buying a slip and slide from a store or making one of your own. All you need is a plastic sheet, some anchor pins to hold it in place, water, and a little bit of soap, making this activity both fun and affordable.
Treat Yourself to a Cool Dessert
One of the best ways to get a break from the blazing sun is by treating yourself to a refreshing ice pop, scoop of ice cream, fruit smoothie, slushy, frozen yogurt, peach cobbler . . . you name it! Besides, it’s hard to stay hot when you’re indulging in an ice cold sweet treat.
Go to Your Local Library
A library might seem like a far fetched idea on this list, but let me explain why it’s actually really clever. If your AC is busted or your 90+ temperature is making your house humid, a good idea is to go to a library and/or or another public place that offers cooler air. This way, you can stay out of reach from the sun’s rays and find a few good books, while your at it.
Visit a Waterpark
Let’s be real, no matter how much we try to improvise in our backyards, nothing compares to a visit to an actual waterpark. This idea is perfect for anyone looking for ways to cool off with their family and friends. As you all run through sprinklers, slide down water slides, and lounge in innertubes, you are sure to feel refreshed as the heat melts away.
Have a Water Balloon Battle
The ultimate backyard summer party is an epic balloon fight. With some water balloons, some water, and all the people you love, this activity could serve for hours of entertainment and laughter. All the more helpful for distracting you from the heat of summer.
There are so many ways to have fun in the sun during the season of summer, many of which I listed today. I truly hope they helped ignite some creative ideas of your own, to fill your break with cool, loving, and everlasting memories.
