Summertime in the H.O.T. {Heart of Texas}

June 24, 2011 at 3:39 pm 4 comments

It’s H-O-T in the H.O.T. , people. I mean HOTTTT! I can’t believe it’s been in the triple digits already. And when it’s this hot, it makes outside playtime kind of un-fun. However, with a toddler we have to schedule some outside time in to our day; we’ve just moved it to the morning. So that leaves the rest of the day. What in the world do we do? Well, here are a few ideas. Some are for those days when you’re enjoying time at home, and the rest are some things you can do around Waco. Our family is going through the alphabet with Hudson, so some of these ideas will go along with the letter we are learning for the day. (Here are some ideas for an ABC Adventure if you’re interested.) What are your plans? Leave a comment or suggestion for these dog days of summer, summer, summertime!

1. Make a marble racetrack.

2. Go to Pinwheel Kids and play on the slide.

3. Make glow balloons. (so cool!)

4. Take a trip (or several trips) to the Mayborne Museum.

5. Play “Break the Ice” and make ice paint. (again so cool!)

6. Visit a local fire station. A friend told me you can show up to any Waco fire station on Saturdays and get a free tour, stickers, sit in the trucks, wear the gear, etc. I think this is wonderful!

7. Make yogurt popsicles. I can’t wait to try this!

8. Visit one of Waco’s library locations. I saw that the Central Library will be closed for renovations, but they have a temorary location.

9. Read the books you checked out from the library!! Duh!

10. Take your dog to Dogtopia where you can use one of their self wash stations.

And there’s so much more! Get creative! This is a wonderful time to explore Waco and all it has to offer!

    Hey, your links all have an extra http in them which makes them broken. But I just deleted it and found your sites just fine. These are fun ideas! Thanks for sharing.

    I spent forever reading that “Little Learning for Two” site. Now I feel like a total inferior mom. 🙂 But great to have some ideas, especially for indoor play. Hmm, now to try yogurt popsicles.
