It’s August, so that means school is right around the corner, or for some of you, it may have already started. So, it’s time to throw a back-to-school party that your kids will remember!
Host a back-to-school pool party and help everyone start the school year on a great note! Going back to school doesn’t have to mean the end of summer fun – we’ve got plenty of hot days ahead! Let’s look at back-to-school party tips:
TIP #1: Invite Everyone
This isn’t the time to leave anyone out. Invite all the kids in your child’s class so everyone feels included.
It’s a great way for everyone to get re-acquainted and meet any new students. You might also consider inviting the teacher(s). This is another fun way to get everyone acquainted.
TIP #2: Play Music
Put together a great music play list. Mix together summer fun songs – oldies and current! Ask your children for some of their favorites – especially the ones they like to sing and dance to.
Have a pool side dance party. If you’re having the party during the evening hours, hang some string lights in the trees for added ambiance.
TIP #3: Choose Pool Games
Play pool games. Throw a watermelon or two in the pool and have a relay. Traditional games like Marco Polo and Sharks and Minnows are always fun.
Again, involve your children in picking some pool games.
TIP #4: Use a Theme
Have a theme and plan your food around the theme. Fish-shaped sandwiches, chicken on a stick, and cupcakes to match the theme or your school’s colors are a few ideas.
Have your party before school starts or in the few weeks after it starts – the weather is sure to be prime for swimming for several months, so you’ve got plenty of time!
