3 Easy Ways to Stay Cool in Your Backyard
to early elementary school
School has started and the pools are closed, but summer isn't over yet. Don't let a hot day keep your kids inside! Try these ideas, all easily pulled off in your backyard.
Water gun target practice.
Draw a bullseye with sidewalk chalk. Fill water squirter. Go.
Bicycle-scooter-toy car wash
. Spiff up muddy toys and cool off in the process. A hose is all you need, but a bucket and sponge are fun, too.
Super spy lair with laser beam-activated slingshot security.
Or maybe it's a fort, or castle. Whatever.
Toss an old sheet over two chairs, a tree branch or swingset frame and you've got shade.
