Think Outside the Box!
Even though San Diego is known for its perfect weather, every summer there are a still a few days when we have to admit that it is too darn hot! On super hot days and throughout the summer months, it’s important as parents to ensure children don’t get too much exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. On these hot days when the temperature rises, there are still a lot of ways to have fun indoors and beat the heat without camping out in front of the TV– It just takes a little planning and a lot of imagination! Here are some fun suggestions to get you started.
Build a Blanket Fort
Hand your kids some blankets, sheets, and close-pins and let their imaginations run wild! The best thing about a blanket fort is all the fun they will have inside of it. Reading a book, playing cards, or drawing pictures becomes so much more magical inside a blanket fort. Cardboard box forts are also a great activity that will keep kids entertained for hours! See the attached example on how to build your own!
