July is just about behind us, and that means we’ve only got a month of summertime left! If you’re like many, August is about when the “dog days of summer” tend to hit. Sure, the sunny weather is fun, but being hot, sticky and tired all the time can become exhausting. Not to worry; you can beat the heat and end the summer with a bang! Here are a few ways to make the most of the last month of summer – and stay cool while you do it.
Throw a Water War!
Looking for an out-of-the-box way to cool down this summer? Invite some friends over for a massive water fight! Fill up the water balloons, load the water guns, break out the sprinklers and slip ‘n slide and prepare to get soaked! Of course, no water fight is complete without a great treat afterward, and since it’s bound to heat up again once the water is dry, try some ice cream!
Host a Cold Dessert Party
Speaking of ice cream, why not make a whole party out of it? Combine ice cream with other favorite cold treats, like popsicles, sorbet, slushies, milkshakes, frozen pies and ice cream cakes, and have some fun while cooling down. If you’re not up for preparing everything yourself, ask guests to all bring their favorite and most creative cold treat!
Build Your Own Sprinklers
Bored and innovative? That’s the perfect combination! Don’t go buying expensive sprinklers when you can have fun making your own this summer. All you need is some soda bottles and bamboo skewers. Use a push pin to drill holes into a two-liter soda bottle, then use the skewers to widen the holes. Then, grab a ¾ inch female by ¾ inch female hose adapter to connect the bottle to the hose. Voila! An invention that’s as fun to use as it was to make.
Freeze Your Clothes
Sounds a little weird, but you’d be surprised how good a frozen t-shirt can feel in August. Just soak a shirt, wring it out and stick it in the freezer in the morning. By the time the afternoon heats up, you’ll have a refreshing outfit ready.
It might be hot out, but it’s ALWAYS cool inside our trampoline park! If you can’t beat the heat, swing on by FLIPnOUT for an exciting jump session. We promise we’ll have the air conditioning on and ready for you.
