Summer is here, and it is HOT in SoCal. My kids love swimming in pools, but we don’t always have access to one. (A trip to grandma and grandpa’s pool is always the best form of bribery.)
On these days where the sun seems to be giving us more attention than ever, we have to come up with creative and fun ways to beat the heat. Even without a swimming pool!
Squirt Gun Bottle Game
- Take a big empty soda bottle and cut hole about the size of a golfball into the top-center (this will be the “target”).
- Use some string or even a shoelace to feed through poked wholes in the bottom, tying under the chin so the bottle can sit on top of the head and be kept in place.
- Grab some cheap Squirt Guns, fill em with water and see who can fill the others bottle the quickest!
If you’re worried about water getting into your kiddos eyes, have ’em wear super-cool Water Gogggles. This does involve a lot of water splashing so make sure you’re in an outdoor, grassy area to avoid slipping!
