Cool fun for kids in the heat....

Would you believe just in the last week summer has started to finally amp up the heat here, and our air conditioner looks like it has died, the compressor looks like its shot itself. Sad thing is we aren't in the market to buy a new air condition at the moment, although we knew it would need replacing at some point soon we were hoping we could get one coming into next summer.

Anyways the decision has been made and we will ride the heat out, but in lieu of an air conditioner, it's going to be cool and wet fun ideas here for my kiddies. This morning we went out on the other side of the house were I have a small concrete area out from the laundry and as the pictures show I just added water. Cool, happy, shaded, wet, playful kids learning, splashing, playing, loving, laughing.......

Bubbles, bubble machine, cups, watering cans, rock washing, spray bottles.....all fun.

That was a good hours worth of fun and when they got grubby it was a quick wash in the laundry sink.

If your copping the heat what are you doing with your little ones to keep cool and happy?

  1. Hi Trudi, I used to love when my kids were this small and a bucket of water kept them occupied for hours. Now it's swimming pools or the beach. Just wanted to thank you for linking up on my Thriving on Thursdays linky party last week. It's on again tomorrow and we'd love to see what you've been up to.
