World Citizen Wednesdays #34: Global Kids Beat the Heat
Each week we pose a question to members of the fabulous Multicultural Kid Blogs group and share their answers here.
This week we ask…
What are your family’s favorite ways to stay cool in hot weather?
Stephen of The Head of the Heard: Open all the windows and strip down to the essentials. And we got a little paddling pool on the balcony for our son.
Jennifer of World Moms Blog: Ice pops! We make our own by freezing fruit smoothies, which means, yes, the kids can have them with breakfast!
Leanna of All Done Monkey: We have a kiddie pool in the backyard, plus our son loves to play with the garden hose (supposedly helping water the plants). Splash parks are also really popular here.
MaryAnne of Mama Smiles: Kiddie pool, sprinkler, and homemade popsicles!
Diana of LadydeeLG: We like water table, inflatable pool, sprinklers.
Annabelle of the piri-piri lexicon: Water play: pretend kitchen with plenty of water in jars, pots, pans, etc.
Amanda of Expat Life with a Double Buggy: We have a little pool which the kids play in – they love to use their slide to get in to it. The excitement of splashing & giggling is a real sign that summer is here!
Heidi of 2 Kurious Kids: The Pool for sure! We live close to the beach too:)
Kristen of Toddling in the Fast Lane: Kiddie pool, splash pad at the park, visits to the aquarium (air conditioned fun!)
