It has been hot and humid here in Upstate NY this summer. I admit that we have not had even half as many outdoor adventures as we typically do. Even bike rides have resulted in sopping wet clothes and chugging a gallon of water.
It has also meant short tempers and limited patience… for each member of the family.
So the August challenge is this:
Find an activity that every member of the family enjoys (a challenge in and of itself I know) to cool off with. For my girls and I this is swimming, but it does not include my husband who hates to swim. He would rather head to the movie theater. So our compromise: movie character squirter tag!
We play tag but to limit the running (remember it’s hot!) whoever is it has a soaker. When “it” gets you wet, you have to freeze until another person touches you and says the name of a movie character. When only one person is unfrozen, they are the new “it.”
We prefer to end this activity with dry clothes and popsicles.
