32 Ideas for Summer Activities and Water Play

32 post

Summer is officially here for us in Georgia! The days are long and HOT! If you live in the south then you know that the summers here can be brutal because of the humidity. So what’s the best way to play outside without sizzling like a fried egg?? With WATER!! (don’t forget the sunscreen and mosquito spray). Since we don’t have a pool, I searched Pinterest for some ideas to play in water and stay cool on those really hot days.
