Beat the Heat

The temperatures today in Southern Ontario are positively oppressive; which got me thinking.  What do you do with the kids to beat the heat?  Here are some of the things I do with my kiddies:

☀ Water Balloon fight
☀ Super-Soaker fight
☀ Dip in the kiddie pool (while I don't fit, I can soak my feet and cool off)
☀ Run through the sprinkler
☀ Eat homemade yogurt or juice popsicles (the great thing here is YOU control the sugar)
☀ Curl up on the couch in the A/C, snuggle and watch your favorite movie together

Leave a comment with your "beat the heat" strategies.  I'd love to hear them.

  1. We don't have AC and really missing it today! But lucky in that when desperate we can go jump in the Bay just down the street.. We do lots of sprinkler runnin' and both kids love eating plain old ice cubes. Even that's not cutting today's heat though. Ick.
