Summertime is undoubtedly the most fun and exciting time to
be a child. Summertime is free of school obligations, it brings warm weather
and long hours of sunshine, and it gives us all a chance to relax and spend
time together as a family.
And any child born in the summer months may tell you that
this is the best season to invite friends together for a birthday celebration.
So if your little one has a summer birthday coming up, and you want to throw
them a bash they will love, follow these few tips to have an unforgettable
Throw a Summer
Birthday Party Outside
The summer months provide you with the perfect setting for
an outdoor kids birthday party – so why not use that to your advantage? Consider
throwing your kid’s birthday party at a local park, a carnival, a miniature
golf course, or any other area that has outdoor attractions for kids. Being
outside and in nature will certainly help the little ones enjoy the
Try Out a Theme
Some of the best birthday parties for kids are those that
have a theme behind the entire event. This summer then, for your kid’s birthday
party, pick a theme that centers around something that they love. If you pick a
baseball theme, you can head to a local park and play catch, or even go to the
batting cages. Or, if you pick an animal theme, you can go to the zoo to look
at the animals, and send home each kid with a stuffed animal party favor. A
theme for a birthday party for kids can help you plan the itinerary.
Early Morning or Late
Although the weather during the summer months may allow you
to be outside without worrying about chilly temperatures, it is also important
that you make sure to keep the kids safe during the hottest periods throughout
the day. If you do decide to throw an outdoor birthday party, make sure to host
it during the early morning, or instead at the late afternoon or evening,
providing the children relief from scorching temperatures and the unrelenting
rays of the sun.
Cook Food Outdoors
Try to again take advantage of the beautiful outdoor weather
by cooking outdoors with the children. Local parks often provide grill pits
that you can use, or you can even fire up the grill in your own backyard. Bring
some hamburgers, hot dogs, or any other grillable foods (with all of the
fixings, of course), and spend time making food for the little ones while they
run around together.
Make Sure There is
Above all, to ensure the kids stay safe this year at an outdoor
kids party, make sure there is plenty of supervision from you and other
parents. Because there is a greater chance of children wandering off outdoors, have
enough parents onsite that can monitor the kids at all times.
Throw a Birthday Bash
If your child has a birthday coming up this summer, there is
no better time than now to start planning. If you want to throw an excellent
