How to Throw the Best Summertime Kids’ Parties
Graduations and birthdays will surely keep you busy for summertime gatherings. But there’s nothing wrong with throwing a fun party for kids just because. Gather the cousins, neighborhood kids, and friends, and invite them for a kid-friendly bash. These tips will help you make it memorable for everyone.
– Plan age-appropriate activities
For kids’ parties in the summer, having games that help beat the heat are always a plus. Set up water sprinklers and create an obstacle course. The younger the guests, the better off you are with more structured activities to keep things moving along. On a budget? Bubble wands and water guns make for tons of fun for everyone.
– Supervise swimming
If you’re lucky enough to have your own pool, make sure you’ve got an adult fully present and presiding over the water activities. Even with children that are older and can swim well, safety at your summer kids’ party must come first!
– Have a backup plan for bad weather
Even if you plan the best party out in your yard, if the weather turns foul, you’ll need to be ready. You can get around that by setting up big tents to keep the yard dry if you’d rather not have all your guests milling through your home.
– Choose kid-friendly fare
Combat picky eating by providing foods that everyone loves. Add some healthy options like vegetables and dips, along with burgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob, and fresh fruits like watermelon and berries. With younger children, it’s common for adults to attend too, so make sure you have things that grownups will enjoy eating.
– Call on catering
No matter the reason for your summer kids’ party, it’s never a bad idea to get some help with the food. Even if you love entertaining, you can keep from feeling overwhelmed by hiring a caterer to help you with your event. From cooking the food to serving it, you’ll have someone by your side so you have one less thing to deal with. Plus, you will be free to enjoy the party with all the guests.
