3. Or make something even more challenging with colored sand.

Talk to your neighbors or local businesses about creating a mural on private property. Artistic murals are one of the best graffiti deterrents.

7. Stage your own GIF.

8. Or GIF your favorite summer treat.

9. Get a temporary tattoo from the sun.

10. Make an ice scuplture.

Moscow holds an annual summer ice sculpting contest. All you need is a chain saw and a block of ice. Proceed with caution!

11. Stage a public acrobatics performance.

12. Or draw a picture in the sky.

You don’t even have to be good at drawing. You do however, need a plane and a pilot’s license.

13. Reshape your parent’s garden.

This one might take a few friends. And someone good at math.

18. And when you exhaust all of these options, you can always turn anything into art with googly eyes.
