Beat the heat! Summer activities for adults and kids

Beat the heat! Summer activities for adults and kids

When we say winter days pass in the blink of an eye and summer feels like it is always here, I know there are a whole lot of you, who are nodding their heads in agreement with us right now. But as much as we like to complain about summer and the heat, we do low-key enjoy all the summer events and activities that it has to offer.

Summer has its own charm and the fans who wait for it every year with so much anticipation because of summer vacation, various exhibitions taking place, theme parks and fairs that are organized, camps, summer night barbeques, and the highlight amongst all the activities – water sports and games.

So if you are too among those who are looking forward to having a great time this summer then you have exactly come to the right place to get some ideas.

  • Early morning or late evening cycling:

You and your bicycle with the early morning breeze or the late evening wind hitting your face, and instantly cooling you down when it touches your sweat. That is nature's air conditioner for you. It not only makes you feel better, but also calms your soul, and is a healthy exercise for your body too. So time to bring your cycles out and ride your worries away.

  • Brisk walking while listening to some music:

If you are one of those who have two left feet and can’t ride a bicycle to even save your life, then just pull up your socks and put on your best pair of shoes, and get on the pavement for a brisk walk or a run. Blood pumping in your veins and music flowing through your body while you run is one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world.

  • Pool Time:

Summer and pools go like bread and butter. Summer feels incomplete without a dip in the pool with some refreshing drink in the hand. Given that we are under an unfavourable situation, we understand that things can’t be the same. But there are still many alternatives like inflatable pools for at least your kids to enjoy. Or if you have a pool at home then a little investment in pool toys like pool balls and floaters can guarantee a fun pool time.

  • Summer drinks and popsicles:

The best part about summer is unlimited ice creams. What even is summer without cold milkshakes, brain chilling ice creams, and homemade popsicles. Get your grocery list ready and add in tubs and tubs of ice cream, fresh ingredients for milkshakes on the list. Fill in your soul and heart for the summer.

  • Barbeque Parties:

Barbeque is the heart of any activity here in the UAE. Be it a family gathering, social event, or just a group of friends catching up. Barbeque is essential. Sitting around the table with food loaded and sounds of laughter of your dear ones ringing around.  So how can a fun summer family time miss out on barbeque? It’s time to bring your grills out or time to invest in some new ones.

In the afternoon, when the sun is out at its peak, even scaring our shadows into hiding, we are in a food bliss after having a great lunch. It’s time for a... nap? What? No!! Alright, a nap is necessary but not before a little friendly competition of games. Head up to the air hockey table, foosball table or bring your table tennis racquets to settle the ages old rivalry score with your family members or cousins.

  • Movie Nights:

At last if all your day’s activities have worn you down, it's time to grab your snacks, pull the comfiest blankets and gather for a movie night. The best way to end a perfect day or a fun weekend. Relaxing, fun, and a quality time with your family and friends. 

  • Yoga:

If you don’t want to turn into a sweaty mess while working out and just want something calm and soothing for your body during this summer then Yoga is the best way to go for it. Often the scorching summer of UAE makes us feel restless and not well rested. This makes us cranky and lazy. Doing yoga is not only good for your body but also for your mind. 


    1. Drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated.
    2. Wear comfy cotton clothes preferably in light colours that absorb less heat.
    3. Take a shower before entering and after exiting the swimming pool.
  1. Wear your masks properly if you are out in a public place even if the lockdown restrictions have been eased down.
