When the dog days of summer are upon us, it is still possible to crank up the fun with a cool summer party for kids. Create an experience to remember for your child with these fantastic summer party inspirations.
Take your pool party to the next level. Select a theme, such as ‘Under the Sea’ or “Beach Blowout’, and personalize invitations with an inexpensive pool accessory for a DIY invite. Find kitschy sea animal novelty inflatables to liven up the pool. Set up a candy bar with themed treats, including licorice for pool noodles, gumballs for beach balls and gummy rings to stand in for pool floats. If your kid has a sweet tooth, make the theme, “Sweet Splash”, and choose cupcake and donut novelty inflatables for a fun pool spot.
Make it a Fiesta. Go in for some Mexican flair with bright colors and sombreros. Add in a Taco Bar, with ground meats, tortillas and all of the fixings like cheese, bean, salsa, rice, guacamole and sour cream in and lets kids make their own specialty tacos. Serve crushed iced non-alcoholic beverages in Cactus Margarita Glasses to keep with the theme and cool off kids and adults. Buy headbands and have young children customize their own sombrero headbands, dress up with hairy mustaches and inexpensive Mexican ponchos for fun. Rent a photo booth and let kids get their craziness on for the ultimate snapshots.
Have a dance-off for tweens at a Glow-in-the-dark Dance Party. Kids can form teams to represent their favorite decade and choreograph their dances for a selection of prizes. Turn down the lights and decorate tank tops with glow in the dark paint to brighten up the evening. Pinterest has imaginative ideas for parents and kids for the ultimate blast. Rent a portable dance floor and a portable air conditioner.
Invite kids to a Picnic Party. There are a number of Phoenix, AZ parks to choose from for an off-site event in the evening. Or, if you want to do a mid-day party bring the picnic inside. Do it at home with plenty of flowers and mini plants. Set out blankets throughout the room to allow everyone to comfortably sit picnic-style and capture the spirit. Keep food in-line with the theme with a sandwich bar, side salads and fruit. Offer guests mini picnic boxes to take home. Fill them with granola bars, trail mix and other picnic-related foods for a healthy and thoughtful takeaway. The best thing about this theme is that even though it is wonderfully summer appropriate, it also works during other seasons as well.
