Summertime is around the corner, the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming, you know what that means right? Summer vacation is about to start, the temperatures will be heating up and so will the kid’s energy. As a mom of four children, I find that keeping the kids entertained yet cool can become a task in its self. Read about my 5 Ways To Make Summer Time Cool this year.
Try New Recipes. Try something new this summer and stick to foods that don’t require an oven. Using an oven can heat up the whole home, so find recipes you can make and pop into the refrigerator. I like to make cold pasta salads for lunch and cook things in my slow cooker during the day for dinner. Using the slow cooker helps reduce the heat omitted in the home and also provides an effortless way to make some delicious meals.
Recipe Idea: Grab one of the new Häagen-Dazs® Trio ice creams, pound cake, and a loaf pan and make yourself an ice cream cake. Simply cut slices of the pound cake and layer the poundcake and Häagen-Dazs® Trio ice cream until you reach the top. Pop it back in the freezer for a few hours, take it out and cut a slice and enjoy!
Find Free Things To Do. Having fun doesn’t always mean you have to pay to have it, you can find many local things to do in your home by searching the web. I like to search the web and find things for my family to do during the weekend. It’s a great way to get out and have some fun but still, stick to your normal budget. Also, don’t forget! Free Cone Day At Häagen-Dazs® Shops is May 9th, 2017! Head over here for more details.
Plan A Staycation. If you aren’t planning on leaving too far from home this summer plan on having a staycation instead. Vacations aren’t just for those who travel, they are for families who stay home too. Like above you can find free things to do in your town, or you can find a local event and attend with the whole family. I like to take advantage of family-friendly events in local museums, restaurants, and local fairs. Stay cool and join a local YMCA or gym and cool off in a huge pool with the family or grab a quick workout and do some laps.
Get Out and Play 1 Hour a Day. The heat can get brutal during the summer but don’t let that slow you down from going outside at least 1 hour a day. It’s great for the kids to burn off their energy and good to get some fresh air, enhance the fun and whip out those water balloons and have a family friendly game of war. Afterward, have them cool off with a Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream Bar when they come inside and then have some fun family movie time.
Stay Cool with Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream Bar’s. Kick back and enjoy a Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream Bar with your family and friends. Enjoy it poolside or inside your home for a tasty treat that will leave you super cool. My kids love to enjoy their ice cream after a long game of soccer in our backyard, as well as after dinner for a yummy snack.
