Throw Your Kids a Welcome to Summer Party

With the last day of school nearing and summer vacation quickly approaching, it seems the kids are growing with more excitement as each school week comes to an end. Even though the kids are experiencing their own stresses and accomplishments in their classes, each of them deserves to be celebrated for finishing strong on another school year. Summer is always exciting but this year I’m amping it up and throwing a summer party by taking advantage of the sunshine, the class roster and favorite summertime activities.

Although school may end in early June, the Summer Solstice doesn’t actually start until June 21.

Keep the Energy High

It doesn’t have to be someone’s birthday to throw a party. Hosting an end-of-the-school-year bash will kick off summer the right way. Don’t wait for a week after school gets out to pass by before celebrating. Try to plan it for the same day school ends or the first weekend after to feed off of the energy and excitement to make sure that no matter where the party is at, everyone is bringing their own fun to it.

July is National Ice Cream Month! If there’s any time to cheat on your summer diet, it’s then.

Keep it Outdoors

Since the children are excited to be out of school, why put them back into a building for the party? Use the summer weather to your advantage and choose a party location that will make a great canvas for all things summer— backyards, pools, parks and beaches to name a few!

If you’re heading to the beach this summer, chances are you’ll be swimming in the Pacific Ocean which covers more earth than all land masses combined.

Fun for Everyone

This party isn’t just for your children’s five favorite friends. Invite everyone! Including all of the kids and parents from class will set the stage for good relationships for the next school year and give everyone a friend to hang out with during the party. The more the merrier!

There’s a world record for most people applying sunscreen at the same time! In 2012, 1,006 people rubbed sunscreen in for two minutes. Maybe now your kids won’t roll their eyes when you remind them to put on sunscreen!

Good Food, Good Times

Catering is expensive, so make it a BYO for everyone. Whether you’re grilling at the park, hosting a feast for a backyard pool party or having some treats at a bonfire, having each parent from the class sign up to bring a certain dish will take the load off of you and make for some great food too!

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Americans eat 7 billion hot dogs on average.

Summer Time Is Play Time

No matter where you host, you must have games! You can coordinate a game of Marco Polo, an extreme water gun match, balloon toss, flag football and more. If you keep the party outdoors, which is the best place to do it, you’ll have plenty of room and opportunity to create not just a party, but some memories that will have everyone looking forward to summer!

The longest day of the year is on the summer solstice.
