“Get ready folks, it’s going to be a scorcher for the next couple of days.” Don’t you hate it when you hear the meteorologist say those words during his or her segment on the news? Well, we all know how hot it can get in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas during the summer, but there’s no need to panic. There are plenty of fun indoor activities you can take advantage of while relaxing in the cool comfort of your own home.
Indoor Picnic: who said a picnic needed to be outside in the grass? Why not throw a family picnic in the living room? Have your children help you make their favorite sandwiches, gather a few refreshing drinks and set up a blanket on the living room floor.
Board Games: when it’s too hot to play outside, take the fun indoors! A heatwave is the perfect time to start a game of Monopoly or Clue or you can break out a deck of cards!
Lemonade Stand: typically, a stand outside on the curb or in the driveway is what comes to mind when you think of a lemonade stand, but just like the picnic idea, why not bring it inside? Invite friends and family members over to enjoy an ice cold cup of fresh squeezed lemonade.
Makeshift Theater: whether your kids prefer to put on a puppet show or a talent show, set up a makeshift stage and let them be the stars of the show. What a great way to pass some time indoors!
Watch TV: have you been meaning to start that series everybody is talking about on Netflix? Maybe you’ve wanted to have a family movie night, but couldn’t find the time! Well, since it’s too hot to go outside, now is as good a time as any!
DIY Projects: when the outdoor heat becomes unbearable, the time could be just right to get some of those indoor projects finished, or maybe start new ones.
Just remember, the key to beating the heat this summer with a properly functioning air conditioning system. They should be serviced annually and maintained at least once a month to ensure proper operation during the hot summer weather.
