Summer’s Just Around the Corner: 4 Unique Water Activities for Kids

When the weather turns warm, water games and activities are a great way to keep kids entertained. Put a new twist on water play, and your kids will be even more engaged. This summer, give some of these unique water activities a try.

Make a Pool Noodle Waterfall

If you’re tired of the sprinkler, make a waterfall instead. Use a nail to poke holes along the length of a pool noodle. Stuff an old plastic bag in one end of the noodle, and seal it shut with duct tape. Insert a garden hose in the opposite end, and water will flow out of the holes you made. Have an adult hold the waterfall up for kids to run under, or prop it up for hands-free play.

Dresses

Most summer dresses rarely go out of style, but there are some models and prints that you should avoid this summer. If you own a Club dress, you should get rid of it as soon as possible, as it is unlikely that it will ever come back in style again. Bandage dresses are also not recommended this season, although you can keep them, as they might make a comeback in the following years. Try to avoid tight dresses altogether, and instead opt for flowy flower dresses, or for elegant pinstripe dresses. Gingham check prints are also very hot this season, and so are bold colors like yellow, fuchsia or neon blue. If you have outdated dresses that you are still attached with, you can try to update them with belts, or you can try to wear them in an unconventional way like paired with a masculine jacket. If you want to invest in new models, opt for polka dot prints, shirtdresses, baby dolls, and oversized dresses.
