Ice Packs

They usually sit in the freezer, but in the summer there’s no need for that. When it’s 90 degrees out and you’re sitting on the beach you should have a cooler right next to you filled with ice packs. Not everyone wants to jump into the pool or ocean to cool off so this is the perfect solution!

Frozen Fruit

Nothing is better than a delicious COLD piece of fruit on a hot summer day. Fruit is already juicy and delicious so why not take it up a notch and freeze fruit! You can freeze all types of fruit like grapes, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc. From my personal experience, frozen fruit with some whipped cream hits the spot whether it’s sitting by the pool, on the beach or even sitting in the car with traffic trying to get home from work.

Cotton Sheets

It’s the little things that we always forget, like changing the sheets on our bed! Even with the air conditioner on, if you’re in your bed under the comforter with silk sheets you will most likely wake up in the middle of the night in a sweat. No one wants that to happen so change your sheets before this happens to you!

 Sleep Alone

It’s nice to sleep next to to a loved one. It’s not so nice to sleep in the same bed when it’s 95 degrees out in August. Everyone needs his or her own space to breathe and not sweat profusely at night. A couple of nights apart from your spouse or child isn’t such a bad thing! Have the bed to yourself and sleep comfortably at night!

You can never go wrong with water balloons! Water balloon fights are one of the greatest things you can do this summer! They’re fun and everyone needs one once in a while.
