How to make the summer a fun?

It is that time of the year when the sun is at its hottest best. Yes, summer is here. With global warming resulting in hot temperatures, going out in the hot summer sun is something that everyone just shies away from. Sitting indoors, however seems to be too boring an option. Here are a few things that we can do during the summer and beat the heat at the same time.

  • Start a herb garden: This is much easier than maintaining a normal garden and you don't need anything to start off except a pot ,a few herbal seeds and an area that gets both the sun and the shade. Once you have picked the perfect spot, decide on what herbs you will like to grow. Parsely, basil, orengano and rosemary are great options .
  • Throw a theme party : A great way to get all your friends together would be to throw a theme party. You could do a movie theme or a cartoon and have your friends come dressed up as different characters. Serve summer favorite drinks and snacks or finger food .
  • Make a scrap book : Make a scrap book for someone you love . It could include pictures , sketches, and ancedotes and just about anything related to that person. These make excellent , highly personalised birthday presents too and will be a creative way to spend hot, sunny afternoons.
  • Have a water balloon fight : Gather all your friends together, get some water, some balloons and have a water balloon fight . There is no better way to beat the heat and you will have a whale of a time .
  • Play board games :Remember Monopoly. Uno and scrabble ? No, not the ones on social networking sites , but the traditional ones played on the board . Indulge in an evening of board games and hot chocolate with friends and family and see how time flies.
  • Learn something new : You don't have to actually go any place to do this . You could take up a variety of courses online! So what are you waiting for ? Go ahead and learn a new language or how to play the guitar or even cook up a storm .
  • Become a bookworm : Read a book. Set a goal as to how many books you want to finish , in the summer , before you start reading.Better still would be to read books of a genre that you don't normally read -biographies, scifi, history .
  • Make snow slushies : There is nothing like beating the heat with cool drinks. Try out different combinations of your favorite cold drinks with crushed ice and some soda with a dash of lemon and viola ! You have a delicious summer drink to cool you off.
