8 Kid-Approved Water Activities to Beat the Summer Heat

There’s something about playing with aqua on hot summer days that takes you back to your childhood. I remember as a kid how a simple car wash with my brothers quickly turned into a huge water war by “accidentally” splashing them with water.

After all, if you can’t beat the heat, get wet! Turn off those electronics (the kids’ and while you’re at it — yours, too) and go outside and get soaked. These little water fights are what childhood memories are made of.

Here are some fun memories to make with your kiddos:
