      I hadn’t thought of the wet fabric on a fan! That’s a good idea, thanks for sharing.

      Get out the water guns, or even spray bottles. Fill with
      water. Now, your daughter and any friends, or even Mom, can have fun
      and still stay cooler outside. My neighbor does not approve of gun
      toys, but had no problem with her sons using water bottles with pump
      spray tops to squirt each other. They were 7 and 8 before they had
      their first “water fight” and they had a lot of fun.

      Would you have a way to have a fan blowing on your daughter while she
      is napping? If so, would it be possible to hang a damp towel so the
      air goes along the towel? In my mind, I’m seeing a towel hung across
      a snack tray stand, with the fan blowing underneath. Anyway, this is
      a way to water cool the air. We actually have fans that pull the air
      through scissile mats set in the sides of the fans, and are called
      “swamp coolers”. The damp towel can do the same thing. You might
      even be able to have a damp piece of cloth, thin
      cloth, on the back
      of the fan and get the same effect. This will dry quickly and will
      have to be dampened quite often.
