Keep the kids amused this summer by throwing a small party with their friends at home or the local park. If you’re stuck on party ideas or themes, try a few of our favourites below which are ideal during the summer.
Water balloon stations
Isn’t this every kids fantasy? An entire box filled with a bunch of water bombs for the party. Keep them out of direct sunlight since the suns rays can pierce through and pop the balloons before the party.
Lucky there are handy tools that can help to fill up to 100 balloons per minute!
Fill a few empty bottles with water, then place a ping pong ball over the top. Guests will have to shoot their water gun directly at the ball – first to do this wins a prize!
Get crafty and make your own life-size jenga game using 2×4 pieces of wood. This is easy enough to carve at home and the kids will never tire of it.
Take a classic game of twister to the next level with food colouring! Simply colour small portions of the grass to emulate a Twister board. Plus, it won’t ruin the grass!
Decorate the pool with waterbombs, plastic swans and noodles ready for the party. It will make any pool like fun and inviting for all guests.
Chop up an extra noodle to make these stunning flowers which will also float in the pool! Hang them from the doors, along the windows, or from the ceiling as wind chimes.
Don’t forget a sunscreen station where guests can re-apply and stay out of the sun for a while. Their parents will certainly be thanking you for this helpful idea at the end of the party.
