You are never too old to tie-dye everything you own. In fact, your tie-dying will almost certainly make all of your friends jealous.

3. Bring the slide to your own backyard.

That’s the beauty of these slides: they’re made to be impromptu! Throw down one of these bad boys to relive your glory days as the person who always slid off the end of the tarp and into the grass.

4. Pitch a tent. It can even be inside!

Just shave some ice, pour on the syrupy fruit sweetness and dive in like it’s 109 degrees at summer camp.

8. Find some friends and share a few scary stories.
