Ask any person what their favorite part of summer is and they’ll likely comment on the seasonal warm weather. Who doesn’t love a little heat, especially after a long cold winter?

DIY Slip and Slide
Let’s face it, everybody loves a good slip and slide! As a kid I used to love them. It was such a treat when someone had one at their house or the camp I was at would pull one out for the kids to enjoy. Not only will this activity provide some relief from the heat — it’s super fun and bound to bring out a bunch of laughs.
You can likely find a slip and slide at any local store like Walmart or Target, but if not, you can also just make your own. Look for an old tarp that might be lying around in the garage and then run a hose over it. Have the kids all line up and one at a time run and slide down it!
