Backyard water toys are a great way to stay cool without dealing with the crowds or admission fees. Pull out the kiddie pool, sprinkler toys or water balloons to cool down after some yard work. Just make sure to be water-wise and check for any water restrictions in your city before you go nuts, or make sure the kids are standing in the garden when you douse them with cold water.
