Last week we experienced a bit of a heat wave here in Oregon. Those of you in legitimately hot parts of the country may laugh when I tell you that a "heat wave" here constitutes anything above 90 degrees. And I'm not being overly dramatic. Once the thermometer climbs above 89, I feel like I'm in an oven and about 2 minutes away from melting.
Whether a "heat wave" to you is 89 or a 109 degrees, here are five great ways to beat the heat with kids this summer:
green lemonade and freezing in popsicle molds or freezing blueberries on skewers.

Be Strategic about Outdoor Time
more than 40 kids craft ideas on my site), reading books, and going on make-believe adventures.
Relax with Netflix:
Giving kids some down time after all that morning outside play and creative time indoors is important - not just for the kids but because Mom usually needs a break, too!
We use Netflix for family friendly TV in casa Green Living not only to save money but to avoid exposing kids to all the junk and advertising on traditional TV. Netflix.com/Families makes picking TV shows and movies for kids easy - they have great curated lists like TV for Curious Kids, Classics to Share with Your Kids (this list has Magic Schoolbus and Jem & the Holograms - two of my favorites!) and Get Ready for Preschool (plus lots more). These lists are available to all Netflix members and non-members, too! Of course, if you're not a member, it's only $7.99 a month with no contract so it's a great way to save money on summer time entertainment.
Visit www.Netflix.com/Families for more information on the best ways to stream as well as videos from families using Netflix.
