Even though the majority of their activities are totally unrealistic to attempt, we can still draw a little summer inspo from our fave animated brothers.

Keep scrolling to see Phineas and Ferb-inspired summer activities that you can actually do.

Have a Beach-Themed Backyard Party

If the actual beach is just a little too far away for you, you can draw some inspiration from "Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror," where Phineas and Ferb build their own backyard beach and invite their friends over to spend the day soaking in the sun.

Your beach probably won't be nearly as elaborate as this duo's creation, but a blow-up pool, a working set of sprinklers, some space to tan and a few fake palm trees should do the trick nicely. Plus, you can buy a set of leis and greet your friends at the door to really embrace the beachy theme. It will help keep you cool, and you'll have an excuse to invite all your pals over for a party!

Create Your Own Clothing

Although your designs might not become the newest fashion trends like Phineas and Ferb's styles in "Run Away Runway," creating your own clothing can still give you a fun way to explore your creative side—and develop some trendy new clothes in the process. You can add some interest to your summer wardrobe with these DIY shorts, repurpose old clothes into breezy crop tops and even create your own set of trendy skirts. Not only are you guaranteed clothing that's completely unique to you, but you'll also have an activity to fill up those long summer days.

Build a Rocket

Science lovers: This one's for you. Much like their theme song states, Phineas and Ferb do build a real rocket that they fly to outer space in the episode "Out to Launch." While your rocket might not make it quite as far, you can still build a small version at home. All you need are a few common household items and these instructions, and you'll be launching your bubble-powered rocket in no time.

Create a Backyard Fort

Forts are always fun. Although yours might not be elaborate as the competing creations in "Thaddeus and Thor," you can still create a backyard paradise all your own. Use outdoor-friendly blankets, cardboard boxes and even trees in your backyard to create a summertime haven that'll keep you safe from the harsh rays of the sun. Not only will you occupy yourself actually building it, but you can also have your own private place to read or stream your favorite shows without spending all day trapped inside the house.

Have a Relaxing Spa Day

In the episode "Spa Day," all the characters take a much more relaxing approach to their summer plans. While you might not have a high-tech spa of your own, you can easily create an at-home spa experience, either alone or with a few friends. Invest in some bath bombs, create homemade face masks and lounge around in your favorite fluffy robe. A day of total indulgence and self-care is the perfect way to celebrate the fact that you don't have to be in school.

Earn Some Extra Cash With a Car Wash

In the episode "At the Car Wash," Phineas and Ferb build a tech-savvy car wash to help their friends earn some money. Even though it might require more effort on your end, the old method of washing cars by hand will still accomplish the same goal. Recruit some friends and start a car wash in your neighborhood as a way to occupy your time this summer. Not only will you be able to earn some extra cash, but you'll also be able to cool off on those hot summer days.
