Ever step a toe outside only to say yourself, “nope” and come back into the air conditioning? Sometimes it’s simply too hot to go outside during the summer and sometimes, it’s just not safe. But that doesn’t mean you need to sit around and do nothing all day – there are plenty of indoor activities for you and the family to make the most of that heatwave.
Clean: you’ve been running around like a chicken without a head lately and haven’t had much time to clean the house.
This is the perfect opportunity to vacuum those floors, clean the kitchen and bathroom sinks and get rid of the black spots in the tub.
Reorganize: whether it’s your kids’ toys, your closet or the kitchen utensils and countertops, a heatwave gives you the opportunity to get things organized without feeling guilty that you’re stuck indoors.
Just think about how good you’ll feel when you can actually find that shirt you’ve wanted to wear or that cookie sheet you haven’t seen since the holidays.
Arts & Crafts: feel like you haven’t spent much time with your kids lately? Why not sit down as a family and put your artistic ability on display.
Create placemats for the kitchen table or stick-on window decorations. Either way spending time with your kids is priceless.
Play Games: this is another great way to spend some quality time with the entire family. Break out everyone’s favorite board game or make one up. You’ll be surprised at how fast the time goes when you’re all having fun!
Pro Tip: we recommend checking on your air conditioning system BEFORE that heatwave rolls into town. This way, you can rest assured knowing that your system will be up and running keeping the house cool while it’s scorching hot outside!
