Creative Ideas for Summertime Kids

Luau-themed party

This is the perfect party theme for families who have a pool in their backyards. Grab island themed decor like grass skirts, umbrellas, tiki torches, and colorful flowers.

A luau party comes with fun party games and delicious tropical food like pineapple, coconut, grilled skewers, and delicious cocktails like Mai Tais.

Ice cream party

What’s better in the heat of summer than to cool down with delicious ice cream? We would say there is nothing better!

Have all your kids’ friends and neighbors over for an ice cream social. Put out all the classics flavors and all those great toppings like whipped cream, sprinkles, and more.

Backyard movie night

Bring the movie to you and have a screening of your favorite flick right in your backyard. It might require some set-up for the projector, but then you are ready to go!

Add some blankets or folding chairs to your backyard, pop some popcorn, and get your favorite movie snack ready for a fun night at the cinema.

Kids game day

The opportunities are endless for a fun afternoon playing games with your family and friends. Plan some innovative and low cost games adults and kids will both enjoy like a water balloon or water gun fight, slip-in-slide, or color run.

Outdoor carnival

It’s a fact everyone loves a carnival. But, you don’t have to spend a ton of money just to throw a carnival right in your backyard.

Bring some fun entertainment like a face painter, clowns making balloon animals, and kids fishing in a toy pool. Don’t forget the popcorn and cotton candy machines, which are always a favorite with the kiddies.

Nature walk

Let kids make their own party by holding a fun and educational nature walk right in your backyard or in your local park. Give kids a map, compass and a guidebook about which leaves, sticks, rocks, flowers and other natural items to collect. Your kids will have a great time and they might learn something too!
