25 Fun Things to Do on a Hot Summer Day

Don't Be Bored: Have Fun This Summer!

Summer break: Everyone loves it! Sitting out in the warm sun, splashing around in a pool, what's not to like? But sometimes, as much as I hate to say it, summer break can get boring. Here are 25 things you can do to keep the boredom away:

  1. Go for a swim!
  2. Play in the sprinkler.
  3. Go on a picnic.
  4. Take nature pictures.
  5. Make string bracelets. You can sell them or keep them for you and your friends!
  6. Make an ice cream sundae or a root beer float.
  7. Go for a walk (or window shopping).
  8. Make lemonade and sell it at a stand.
  9. Give you dog a bath.
  10. Have a sleepover.
  11. Plant a tree or flowers.
  12. Go to the park.
  13. Learn a new trick: a cartwheel, back handspring, handstand, or a front flip.
  14. Tie-dye a shirt.
  15. Make a smoothie.
  16. Make popsicles.
  17. Camp in a tent in your backyard.
  18. Have a BBQ with your neighbors.
  19. Play games in the dark: cops & robbers, ghost in the graveyard, etc.
  20. Blast the radio and make up a new dance with your friends.
  21. Make up a dance in a pool.
  22. Have a water balloon fight.
  23. Take your dog for a walk.
  24. Sign up for a summer camp.
  25. Fly a kite.

Remember, any time you go out in the sun, be sure to put on sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Oh—and watch these videos (or make your own) for other ideas. Have fun! :)

LS on June 28, 2012:

Wut about going 2 a water park or having dinner outside or carting stars or roasting marshmallows

LS on June 28, 2012:

Nothing looks FUN :(

HungerGamesFanatic on June 27, 2012:

I liked some of this list. Some of it was either too kiddie for me or it would be too hot outside to do. Thanks, though!

(Also, what about making a movie? My friends and I love doing that.)

bored on June 25, 2012:

This is lame

Try a different website

cheese on June 25, 2012:

awesome things to do!!!

Cheryl on June 24, 2012:

Big sponges, not pig sponges. Though if there is such a thing as pig sponges, they'd probably work, too.

Cheryl on June 24, 2012:

Instead of water balloons, we use pig sponges and a rubbermaid tub filled with water. Less mess!

Julie on June 21, 2012:

we dont have a pool and it is 100 degrees out and it is so hot my kid feels sick. can someone help?

Marcelline on June 15, 2012:

Wow it's 96 degrees right now and im not walking my dog I can't have a sleepover and my parents won't take me to the store to buy string. The rest of the stuff, just face it, is kind of lame.

imsexy on June 15, 2012:

heyo on June 12, 2012:

ihateyou on June 10, 2012:

shut up alla u. u dont kno how to evven have anyy fun on hot days. im too hot and my boyfriend wont even call me bak :( wht shuld i doo

crazygirls on June 10, 2012:

the number 9 should say give your dog a bath not give you dog a bath. i thought these were some cool fun summer games and how does 21 not make sense because me and my friend do that all the time

Emma on June 10, 2012:

Put stuff on there that does not involve water

noneofanyonesbissneuss=mynament2berude on June 10, 2012:

UH bOring. Hate 2 Critize but what if its a hot day. But who wants to be in a pool with lots of clorine, screaming children, bad music and people who use the pool water as their toliets, hey i hate to be a downer but not every one has acess to a pool outside. Or even a nice pool. No offence but Wash your dog? Noone wants to be in a bathroom all day and if you wash him outside or in your garage from the heat you will get sticky because your bound to get soap on yourself. Something that people never think of really doing on a hot day is... Bringing other dogs over, having a spa party with friends, seeing a concert, watching a movie, going on a road trip!, at the night having a camp out in your backyard, going to the farm to pick fresh berries, visitiong a non-putdown shelter, babysitting, going into a shop trying on things for fun with friends and pretend you have money with you,getting high on candy, sleeping in, making videos, ziplining, going on a tampoline, playing capture the flag, shaving your dog for the summer, seeing family, having a BBQ-that is something i really think is fun and easy on the list, bird watching, kyaking, canoe-ing, ski-dooing, gardening-i think i might have already written that. The point is yah somethings are sucky on that list, but with an open mind you can have fun, your probably thinking some idiot person is writing this but just try it. I know more than half of these things i wrote are indeed un practical but this is here just to show you there is a lot of fun out there waiting for you.

djcbhdsxfcuybjv on June 09, 2012:

I like the list but you should replace some of the boring ideas with fun ideas, like going to an amusement park or somehing.

cam on June 08, 2012:
