If you have a fan, you have a treasure. Place a large bowl full of ice in front of it and add coarse salt. The ice will gradually melt thanks to the salt and this will cool the air down.
2. Well watered plants
Your small outdoor plants can be your greatest allies against the heat indoors. By watering them you will slightly lower the temperature of the walls and outside areas, which in turn can lower the temperature indoors.
