Summer Fun Inside Your American West Home

Summer temperatures in Las Vegas may keep you indoors sometimes, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up summer fun. Inside your spacious American West home, there are many ways to have a great find discovering your new passion! If you’ve been searching for a new hobby or skill, look no further; we have a great lineup of things to do inside your home that will revitalize your days:

Learn a New Language

Aimez-vous la langue française? ¿Quieres aprender español? Learning a new language unlocks a whole new world. You’ll not only exercise your brain, you’ll experience another culture and all of the wonderful nuances that come with it. There are several ways to learn a new language, from the award-winning Rosetta Stone to free online classes. Get back into the excitement of learning something new and set a goal! Who knows, you might find yourself speaking this new language in its origin country. 

DIY Project

Pretty, easy-to-grow succulents are the perfect decor in any room, adding an unmistakable flair to your home! First, fill a small pot with soil and sand, and then mix them together with a little water. Remove each desired succulent from its container and plant in your pot. Add clean and dried decorative pebbles to the top of the soil — both pretty and protective! Place your little pots in a larger container and make sure your plants get 6-8 hours of sun a day. You can find full instructions here!

Book Club or Movie Club with Neighbors

Do you love reading or watching movies and wish you had a group to discuss them with? A weekly or monthly club is the perfect way to not only get to know your neighbors, but to host a get-together in your American West home. Start a club with a friend and let word of mouth spread, send out an email chain, or start a Facebook event or group. Decide on one book to read or movie to watch, and come prepared weekly or monthly to spark a good discussion. Your club will be entertaining, informative, and fun!

Practice Yoga

Namaste away from the heat! Both the physical and mental health benefits of yoga are undeniable. This popular practice not only helps to lower your blood pressure, increase flexibility, and build muscle, it relieves stress, helps you focus, and calms you down. It’s no wonder that people love to start and end their days with yoga! If you’re a beginner, you can learn certain poses and styles from videos as well as books. Find a few moves that you love to do the most!

Cook Something Delicious

Cooking is a great way to keep yourself both busy and happy. Not to mention, the joy that home-cooking brings to your loved ones is priceless. Plan to have your friends and family over for a dinner party at some point this summer, where you’ll prepare the appetizers, main meal, and dessert. Find good beginner recipes, and make sure to have all of your ingredients and tools ready on the big day. You’ll love enjoying your homemade meal with your crew in your American West kitchen or dining room, or on your roof deck!

Get Creative: Calligraphy, Painting, Sewing

If you’re good with your hands, patient, and love creating something beautiful, calligraphy, painting, or sewing is for you. Unleash your inner artist and let your creativity flow. Have you always wanted to repair clothes or create them? Try sewing! Calligraphy is a type of lettering, and is often used to write formal invitations for events like weddings. Of course, painting comes in many forms and styles, and can help you relieve stress while producing something amazing. Take a class, watch tutorials, and get going!

Just like your American West home, creative hobbies and new skills will open doors for you! While you’re staying nice and cool inside of your home, you don’t have to waste any moment missing what’s going on outside. Spend your time doing something that you love and turn a hot day into a cool one!
