A super fun birthday party that won’t break your budget is one at your pool. Pool parties are easy. So, it really just comes down to choosing a great theme and letting the fun begin. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing…
A pool carnival is always a hit! Some great games to include are inflatable chair or tube races and water tug of war. You can also easily mimic a ring toss game in the pool with sponges to toss into a frisbee and use Super Soakers to shoot rubber duckies across the pool to see who can get to theirs to the other side fastest.
Pool ice cream parties are also very cool! You can get the kids involved by making homemade ice cream with them and then it’s all about the toppings. So set up a delicious looking sundae bar with all sorts of deliciousness like chocolate and caramel sauce, M&Ms, Gummy Bears and other candies, crushed cookies, whipped cream, nuts if there are no allergies and you can even keep things healthy with strawberries and bananas. Actually, any and all fruit will do!
Pool dance parties can be very entertaining too. You will need music and colorful pool lighting is fun to incorporate. Then the kids get to create and video their own dance routines in the pool.
Care for a spot of tea? Pool tea parties are popular with the little ones. Serve whatever fun foods and drinks you like. Plastic tea pots can be filled with juice and the kids can even decorate their own mini cupcakes. Favors could be dress-up items like pink flip flops and plastic sunglasses. Then, of course (after those cupcakes settle), it’s into the pool!
