2. Eat a popsicle.

Gwen Stefani's son Kingston has the right idea with that red, white, and blue rocket pop. Bonus points if you can get someone to push you on a swing at the playground while you eat it.

3. Throw a Frisbee around.

It's the perfect excuse for Matthew McConaughey to take his shirt off!

4. Rock out at an outdoor concert.

Sure, the summer music festivals may be mostly wrapped up by now, but there are still plenty of outdoor venues you can take advantage of before the weather gets too chilly. Just ask Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder!

8. Have a barbecue.

We don't know exactly what Kristin Cavallari has on the grill there, but whatever it is, we want it.

9. Wear an awesome sunhat.

It helps if your hats are as amazing as Queen Elizabeth's (although how she didn't fry in that coat and those gloves during the Olympics, we'll never know), but anything goes!

10. Take a trip to an amusement park.

It doesn't have to be to Disney World like Tom and Suri Cruise's recent amusement park trip (though of course if you happen to be in the area, go forth!), but every summer should feature at least one day of roller coasters and midway games.

11. Root for your favorite player or team at a sporting event.

Posh and Becks took in Wimbledon in July. What's your favorite summer sport to watch?

12. Ride a bicycle.

Okay, we'll admit that Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen aren't just going for a bike ride at Coney Island because they feel like it here; they're on the set of Very Good Girls. But we still think that an afternoon coasting along in the summer sun is just what we need right now!
