When the weather is nice it’s always fun to have an outdoor party. Not only does it keep the kids out of the house and from making a mess, but it also gives you more room. Check out these five kid-themed outdoor parties and give them a try this summer. And don’t worry if your child’s birthday doesn’t fall during warmer months. Make it a back to school bash/send off to summer party instead of a birthday party. These are some really great outdoor party ideas, though.
Five Outdoor Kids’ Parties
1. Pool party. Of course this is an obvious one and it’s great if you have a pool. But if you don’t, that’s okay too. A sprinkler party and Slip ‘n Slide can be just as great. Or if you have a town pool you can rent out, then go for it. That might be even better because then you can get some lifeguards. However, if doing that is out of your price range, then fear not – you can still have a great wet ‘n fun party. Water guns, water balloons, and water relay races will make for plenty of fun times.
2. Beach party. Bring the beach to your back yard. If you have a sand box or can get one, that’s great. Some sand toys and a little sandcastle-building competition will be great fun. Beach balls will add to the fun of this party.
3. Garden party. Have all of your guests plant some seeds in a cup which they can bring home and grow for their own garden. Make some heavenly dirt out of chocolate pudding, Oreo cookie crumbs, and cool whip. Add some gummy worms for effect. Butterfly wings to dance in the garden like a butterfly will be a fun touch.
4. Nerf party. Do you have a bunch of Nerf guns in your house? Well, even if you don’t you can probably ask your guests to bring their own Nerf and have a blast running around the yard shooting darts at each other. Or better yet, instead of having them shoot each other (because even those Nerf darts can hurt), set up an obstacle course and have them run through it shooting at targets.
5. Kite party. Invite your guests to come over with their favorite kite (or provide one for everyone that they can bring home with them) and let everyone fly their kite. This is best done in an open field without a lot of trees and of course on a windy day which can be hard to predict. But even still trying to launch your kite and see who can get it the highest is a lot of fun. For food and decorations think diamond shapes and bright colors. Graham crackers decorated like kites will make for a fun treat for your party guests.
These are just some outdoor kids’ parties you can do when the warm weather comes. There are so many more. What are your favorite outdoor parties?
