It is a week of 100 degrees – find out how we will beat the heat {Tuesday’s Toddler Tales linky}

Okay, well, they have adjusted it, so only high 90’s for this week, but it’s very humid.  Have I mentioned that our air conditioner doesn’t work very well.  It is nighttime and still over 80 in our house.  Hot!  We have found some fun, and mostly free ways to beat the heat.

Beat the Heat, Tuesday's Toddler Tales

Sprinkler  The kids aren’t always huge fans of the sprinklers, so they don’t get used for much more than watering the lawn most of the time

Beach  We recently discovered a beach that is only minutes away.  I can’t believe we didn’t know about it until a few weeks ago!  We have gone quite a few times in the last week and the kids are really loving it.  Plus, many times, there isn’t anybody else there.

Hose  This one thing is a source of a lot of tears and fights.  The kids both want to play with it to fill the dogs dish, the pool, or water the plants.  But….they sometimes spray each other, not on purpose either, and whoever just got soaked, {which may be the same person who is in control of the hose} starts to yell and cry.  That water is cold!

Pool  We are working on setting up the big pool, but for now, they have their little kiddie pools.  They go back and forth with whether they like the pools or not.  When their friends are here, they get used a lot more.  

Ice Cream  Who doesn’t love a cool down treat on those hot days?  Ice cream, freeze pop, you name it, the kids and I love it!

Not sure if you figured this out yet, but we love to play in the water!  Sometimes, I don’t even dress them when we go outside because we would only have to change as soon as we come in.

  • I would say I can not imagine not having AC but after being stationed in NJ for three years I forget what real AC feels like. Due to my oldest sons skin condition we have to keep him cool or he gets a very bad rash. So we keep a window unit on all day and he does everything in that one room. I am so ready for winter this year. I am going to have to try the sprinkler idea again. My little ones hated it last year but maybe now that they are older.
