On days like these, what’s better than keeping everyone cool and entertaining your kids at the same time? Of course, you still need to make sure that they are protected from the suns rays.

Cool Kids Activities for Hot Days

Catapult

This is a super simple science and craft activity to do with the kids.  We always have a lot of lolly stick (popsicle sticks), so made lolly stick catapults.  You can have hours of outdoor fun seeing who can get mini marshmallows into a target!

Soapy Mark Making Tuff Tray

This soapy mark making activity by my friend Amy from Learning and exploring through Play is a wonderful activity with quick and easy setup today that doesn’t cost a penny. You can use materials you already have at home!

Oh and the bonus? It kept two very busy boys with usually fleeting attention busy and engaged for over 40 minutes!

Frozen Paint

I am a big fan of this idea from Hands on as we grow. What could be better? The paint cubes are made with washable paint. Want to see how they are made? Then pop over and read the full frozen paint how to.

toy surfboard or windsurf board 

This is a great activity where you can make a mini surfboard with your child and it will provide them with hours of fun. Even better they are made with something you would normally throw out.  Read on to find out how to make a toy surfboard or windsurf board that floats!
