In case the last few days caused you forget, there are plenty more ways to enjoy summer besides wandering around playing Pokémon Go. Luckily, the folks over at YouTube's HouseholdHacker shared a new video detailing 10 super-simple summer-oriented hacks that will hopefully help take your mind off of the hunt for Pikachu. At least for a few minutes.
The 6-minute video includes a series of quick and crafty tutorials, many of which offer smart solutions and workarounds for problems you didn't even know you had. For example, have you ever lounged in a pool and wished you had a cooler full of booze floating next your? Turns out all you need is a pool noodle, some string, and your beverages of choice. The clip will also show you how to make homemade chocolate chip cookie ice cream bowls, simple watermelon slice pops, and perhaps the easiest way to fill water balloons ever.
This is all to say that it's probably time to put your phone down before your quest to catch 'em all absorbs your whole summer. The game is only going to get better over time, after all.
