While you’re busy minding the grill or stovetop, keep the kids busy with some fun physical activities! We know summers in Oklahoma can be unbearably hot, but don’t sweat it. Activities can range from active to fairly chill.

If your cookout is in your own backyard, you probably have lots of fun things at the ready — like soccer balls to kick, frisbees to toss and more. If you’re going to a park or campsite, be sure to throw a few these things in your trunk. Here are some more fun activity ideas:

Bubbles! Kids love bubbles. They’re a blast to blow, chase around and pop.

Hula Hoops! Looking for an aerobic activity the kids will enjoy? Give hula hoops a whirl!

Water Balloon Fight! During the hot summer heat, there are no losers in this fight!
