It’s Playtime! : Beat the Heat

SummerAll Ages2 Comments

I realize that we’re not the only people going through a heat wave these past few weeks.
I’ve noticed in many posts linked up to It’s Playtime lately, especially last week, that my playdate pals have found creative ways to beat the heat too!

hot car crayons

(Come Together Kids, using the heat like an oven to melt crayons: Hot Car Crayons!)

Check out how hot it was for Come Together Kids (above), their car was so hot that it acted as the oven to melt their crayons! Incredibly hot! Huge safety warning going on there!

I love all the water and ice play that everyone’s been doing too! Art, construction, and just some good old fun!

Above, from left to right:

  • Futuristic building construction in the water! The Chocolate Muffin Tree makes a pool noodle sculpture in the pool on a hot day!
  • A very creative and artistic ice cube painting at Praises of a Wife and Mommy.
  • Living at the Whitehead Zoo has fun with art (Big Art Alert!) and does water gun painting and then stays cool with the water guns afterwards!
  • Head outside with a few bowls and add water. Fun! A super simple activity for play from Kitchen Counter Chronicles.

We can Beat the Heat!
How have you?

    You've been busy. I love all your Beat the Heat posts!
    I remember doing projects with left over broken crayons, popsicle sticks, wax paper, and black construction paper. We used the popsicle sticks to make crayon shavings onto our wax paper. We created "stained glass".
    Stay cool!
