Summers in Pompano Beach and South Florida can be brutal, especially without a pool. Keep your air conditioning in tiptop shape and try these eight fun and creative ways to keep cool and beat the heat, whether you have a pool or not!
1. Frozen Summer Fare
Nothing beats a hot summer day like a nice cold popsicle. If you want to get creative with your cool-down summer food, try some frozen fruit kebabs. Grapes, raspberries and bananas are great go-top options.
2. Kiddie Pool or DIY Slip ‘N Slide
Head to the store for a Slip ‘n’ Slide or kiddie pool purchase to last you and the kids (and pets!) through the warmest months of the year. For complete instructions on how to build the best DIY summer Slip ‘n’ Slide, click here.
3. Water Balloon Fights
Nothing beats an old-fashioned round of water balloon fights. Bulk up on balloons, add water and arm yourself for an afternoon of fun.
4. Refreshing Cool Mist Umbrella
The traditional patio umbrella, reimagined. When the sweltering summer sun becomes unbearable, head under the nice cool—and refreshing—shade of the Cool Mist Umbrella. No heat will be too hot to beat.
5. Smart Phone Fan Attachment or Propeller Hat
Bring back some retro style fun with a colorful propeller hat. Or, if you’re looking to go modern with your self-fanning, invest in a smartphone USB fan attachment. Stay cool wherever you go.
6. Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
If you’ve already been struck by the summer sun and are recovering from a resulting sunburn, do yourself a treat and freeze some aloe vera in your ice cube tray. Once frozen, store your homemade sunburn relief cubes in a plastic bag in the freezer and rub on your burn as needed.
7. Mint Tea Body Cooling Spray
Cucumbers are made up of 95 percent water, which makes them a perfect option to stay hydrated on a cool summer day. Combine some peeled cukes with the cooling relief of green tea and you can make your own homemade body cooling spray.
8. Sponge Water Bombs
This is a creative and fun way for kids and adults alike to keep cool in the heat. Cut up some colorful sponges, tie them together with a string in a pom pom-like configuration and get to soaking.
