The warm summer weather and sunshine should be enough to entice most kids out of the house but sometimes, staring at screens for hours at a time can be all too tempting.


The easiest way to get kids active and moving around outside is to simply make it fun. So the next time they complain about being bored, suggest some of these activities instead.


1. Run a lemonade stand
This is a classic summer pastime for children of all ages. Let the kids figure out pricing, marketing and sales — not only will selling lemonade (and whatever snacks on the side, like cookies or brownies) earn them some spending money this summer, it’ll also teach valuable lessons.


2. Make a giant board game with chalk
Whether it’s hopscotch or Twister, pull out the chalk sticks and get creative. Invite a few neighbourhood kids over for double the fun.


3. Visit the public library
Even for kids who aren’t bookworms, there is likely something to pique their interest at the local library. Oftentimes, they run all kinds of classes and workshops for kids from finger painting to meet-and-greats with authors.


4. Make ice cream or popsicles
Even the youngest of children can follow a simple recipe of freezing popsicle mixtures — and, for the older or braver, turn to ice cream bowls and a bit of elbow grease to make some deliciously cold treats.


5. Look into summer camps
If you’re stuck working and can’t take time off, summer camps can be a great way to keep kids out of trouble and engaged. There is a camp for almost every interest, from adventure to science to cooking to coding — the options are endless.


6. Go camping — in your backyard
There’s no need to go very far for a camping adventure. Just pitch a tent in the back garden, make some s’mores over a fire (or the BBQ) and stargaze from just metres from the safety of home.


7. Have a water balloon fight
When the water restrictions come into effect and sprinklers are turned off, it’s not the end of water fun. Fill up some balloons and cool off by tossing them around.

Sunny days and warm temperatures are a welcomed sign of summer coming. But it’s not too long before things start to get hot in the house— maybe too hot.


Putting a large AC unit in every room of the house or installing a swimming pool in the backyard might seem like great ways to keep cool, they’re also hugely expensive.


Here are some tips to cool things down without breaking the bank.


1. Grow some houseplants
Some plants, like cacti and bromeliads, take in water from the air and so can help reduce humidity in your home. That keeps everything cooler.


2. Buy a dehumidifier
If the plants aren’t cutting it, buy a dehumidifier to do the same job of removing moisture from the air and making you feel cooler even at hot temperatures.


3. Close your blinds
It might be nice to have rays of sunlight streaming in through the windows, but it heats up the space very quickly. Keeping the light out during the peak sunlight hours can reduce the temperature in your home from 10-15 C.


4. Shade the outside
If you can’t stand having the blinds drawn and a dark house, shade the outside of your windows with awnings. This will at least cool the air before it enters.


5. Reverse your fans
Setting the ceiling fans to spin counter-clockwise helps pull hot air up and away, rather than pushing it down towards you. In general, you want to pull warm air away rather than just move it around.


6. Cool sheets
Choosing materials that wick away heat and moisture – like silk or cotton — for your bed sheets can help you feel much better at night.


7. Create a flow of air
Be strategic about where you place fans and which doors you open to create a flow of air moving throughout the house.


8. Self-care
If you’re feeling good yourself, the weather will feel more manageable. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated, avoid exertion and wear appropriate clothes.

Interest in electric cars is growing as prices at the pump surge and Canadian society in general turns away from fossil fuels.


In British Columbia, for example, the government recently announced a new law requiring that all cars and trucks sold in the province be zero emission by 2040. In addition, the federal government is offering buyer’s incentives for newly purchased or leased electric vehicles on or after May 1, 2019. Click this link to find the list of eligible vehicles.


This may seem all fine and dandy — who doesn’t like the idea of no longer paying high gas prices to commute? — but a lot of questions still remain about the infrastructure surrounding electric vehicles.

In particular, charging them is a concern.


It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours to charge an electric car, depending on the vehicle and the type of charger.


In an ideal situation, you plug in your electric car when you pull into the garage at home and let it charge overnight. Come morning, you’re all topped up and good to go.


But it’s not always that easy.


The cars can charge with a variety of different charge points, including a standard 120-volt outlet. That’s the option that takes the longest to charge, though, and still ideally requires access to a garage or somewhere covered to park your car.


Most electric car owners opt for a 240-volt charging station – but that needs to be installed at home and can cost several hundred dollars.


If you rent or live in an apartment with building policies, it can be tricky to install the charger you want. That’s why it’s crucial to look into your options before buying an electric car.


If you can’t charge it at home, though, not all is lost.


Many apartment buildings are opting to install charging stations – bring it up with your building manager. The same is true at workplaces where, increasingly, charging stations are being installed in parking lots. Then you can simply charge it while you work.


If none of those are options, look into what is around you in your neighbourhood. Oftentimes, malls and other public places will have free charging. There are also hundreds of paid super-chargers around the city, as well.
