No matter where you live, chances are that you’ll encounter some hot days this summer. Sure, you could stay inside and stay cool in the air conditioning, but where’s the fun in that?

Instead, get on your bathing suit, put on some sunscreen and head outside for some water fun. You can make this as simple or complicated as you’d like.

If you have a kiddie pool or a big plastic tub sitting around, fill it up. The kids will have just as much fun splashing around in a kiddie pool as they would if you were heading to the local pool or beach.

Turning on the sprinklers or the gardening hose is another great way to cool off in your own backyard.

Water guns are another fun way to play outside, get wet, and cool off. Head to your local dollar or superstore and pick up a few of them. Fill them up and let the games begin.

Water balloons are another fun option. Fill them up, divide the balloons and let the battle begin. Lots of giggles and screams are sure to be heard.
