I’m back with some Beat The Heat ideas!

9 Jul

Last week, I wanted to come up with some ideas for beating the heat and still enjoying some nerd fun. Now that I am no longer melting from being on the surface of the sun (read- the central valley), my brain can actually process ideas!

So here’s a few of the things I came up with-

  • homemade ice cream.
    • Yes, this is on the list because I made some ice cream today. I think Ice Cream is a wonderful treat in the summer- but getting to make it yourself… well, that’s just plain awesome! If you think your favorite flavor isn’t doable from home, take a gander online… I bet you can find a recipe! I did!

  • local random visitor attractions.
    • I have a site bookmarked full of attractions within a 60 mile radius- must of which are happily within air conditioned buildings. There’s a death museum here in LA that I cannot wait to visit! Now, I know many of you aren’t in the LA area- but I bet that google has a gaggle of local attractions for you too!
  • simple crafts.
    • I like the idea of creating things for my home- saw something earlier today about recycling pallets as planters. So here’s the fun- the internet is full of fabulous crafts. I want to do them all! And you can plan some for different weather situations, so you don’t do something that’ll be too hot…
  • crazy science experiments.
    • When I was working with kids this year, I wanted to have activities to do with them. Never got the chance. But I bookmarked ones that I knew I would enjoy too. Can you say bubbles?
  • DVD marathons.
    • Alright, this is a year round thing for me but… come on, you can sit on the couch and watch your favorite show/movie/or something new! Just veg out… get your favorite snacks and a fan and just camp out. A brilliant way to spend a day.
  • drive-in movies!
    • This one is a little tougher than the rest because many of the drive-ins closed a decade or more ago. However, I happen to know that I can get to two locations in my area, in an hour or less. Which means that the probability is decent (not great, but decent) that you can too.
