15 Ways to Beat the Heat Wave with Kids
Here in LA, it’s been a LONG heat wave kind of summer. And what did we do to beat the heat wave?! All kinds of things…
Played with water balloons, water balloons and water balloons!
Buried our hands in colorful, cool rice.
Hugged trees like a Koala.
(Did you know Koala’s hug trees to cool themselves down?)
Ate watermelons shaped like hearts on sticks.
Played fun in the sun INDOORS.
Dug for dinosaurs in the snow. Brushed off excess snow. Made dinosaur snow footprints.
(Yep, it’s just salt.)
Shared our cereal with the birds. Just O’s and Pipe Cleaners.
Decorated our windows.
Used up all of daddy’s shaving cream. (Yep, he found out morning of, right when about to shave). Just add food coloring to shaving cream. That’s it!
Went nowhere other than the SWIMMING POOL!
And the BEACH!
Cut jeans into jean shorts. Made bead necklaces indoors.
Took early evening strolls.
Stayed under a parasol.
Lay in shady hammocks.
