These ideas will cool you down on warm and humid days.

1. DIY a sprinkler

On a hot, muggy day, don't let your children sit around inside — send them outside for some water fun! Just poke a few holes into a water bottle, line it up with the mouth of your hose and tape it in place. The pressure will push the water out in various directions.

 2. Use frozen water balloons

Can you say "cutest ice bucket ever"? This water balloon trick is a playful way to keep drinks cool at a summer shindig. After the party is over, use them to survive a muggy night.

3. Sooth sunburns even betterSay you forgot the SPF and find yourself with a burn — ouch! To cool down your red skin and treat it at the same time, try freezing your aloe vera before applying it. 

4. Float your drinks Going on holiday somewhere with a pool? Usually pool noodles are for children, but they can become the best grown up toy ever. You can turn them into a flaoting cooler so you cans tay cool in the pool when you need a refill.

5. Serve melt-proof ice lolliesNothing is worse than having to scrub colourful streams off your child's arms in a warm bath post-treat. The secret to no-drip ice lollies ism aking them out of frozen jelly! 

6. Keep ice dryWater-downed cocktails are not fun at a summer barbecue. Use a colander as ice buckets so the melty mess can drip away from the ice and guests can fill their glasses with only frozen stuff. 

7. Make your own air conditioning

The ice cold water in front of a fan cools down the breeze before it hits you on a blistering day. This blogger dubs it the "Redneck Air Conditioner" (her words, not ours.) 

8. Freeze your lemons 

The fastest way to make your plain tap water feel fresh and invigorating? Toss a frozen lemon slice in it. It'll cool down the temperature and add a burst of flavour!

9. Blast water with pool noodlesAnother great idea usin those pool noodles! Once your children tire of the sprinkler halfway through the summer, jazz up their water play with pool noodles and PVC pipe to create these "blasters" they can move and direct. 

10. Chill white wine quicklyYou don't want a luke warm glass of white wine on a brutally hot day. Frozen grapes are a great way to cool down your drink, since they won't melt or dilute like ice cubes! 

11. Whip up a riverIf you don't have a stream out back, make your own with foil. Then let your kids experiment with floating toy boats and building their own dams for the rest of the afternoon. 

Via.
