How often do you get to experience the World’s Longest Day? Turns out, only once a year! This June 21st, you’ll have a wonderful 17 full hours of summer daylight; be sure to take advantage of every drop of fun, and water, with those you love!
Outdoor activities, especially those involving cool water, are the best way to stay cool and have fun this summer. So, if you’re looking for some tips to have fun with your outdoor plumbing and family that won’t break the bank, be sure to read on!
Use a Sprinkler and Slide to Amp Up the Fun
Using a sprinkler and slide right in your front yard will not only provide limitless fun for the whole family, but it also goes easy on your budget. A slip n’ slide requires minimal water to get it going and can provide hours of fun.
If you want to change it up or don’t want to spring for the slide, you can have just as much fun splashing in the sprinklers with your loved ones.
And as an extra bonus, your grass will love all the water too! This way, you’re doing yard work and having fun at the same time.
Water Hose Fights For the Whole Family
June 21st doesn’t have the reputation of being an especially cool day, so, if you and your family are looking for an inexpensive way to beat the heat, look no further than your front yard water hose.
Water hose fights are a fun way for everyone to cool off while having some fun and getting some exercise. Just be sure to keep an eye on how much water you’re using, or you could be surprised with a large water bill at the end of your next cycle.
If too much water usage is truly a concern, try tossing in some inexpensive water guns to constrict water usage a little more without constricting your family's fun.
Beat the Heat with Water Balloons
Not only are water balloons a fun outdoor summer activity, but they are also budget-friendly and water-usage conscious. Purchasing water balloons at your local store is generally pretty inexpensive, and filling them up is as easy as using your yard water spigot.
Temperatures can get pretty hot during the month of June, and the longest day of the year is no exception; family members will definitely appreciate this fun and cool way to have fun and beat the heat!
The water activities we mentioned are great ways to stay cool and make awesome memories with your family and friends, but it’s also important to remain mindful of water conservation while you’re splashing in the sun. Water conservation is an important way to do your part in helping to protect our Earth’s precious and limited resources.
By taking care to preserve water, it can offset increasing food costs, help to protect us from future drought, ensure our communities continue to look beautiful, promote positive and healthy living, and allow us to enjoy water-related activities throughout the hot summer months. The longest day of the year only rolls around once every 365 days; At Super Plumbers, we want you to make the most of it while being responsible with water use so we can all have fun!
