Backyard Party Ideas for your Kids This Summer

Kids play at a table outside

As the snow is melting and we are all getting our yards back from the clutches of winter, it is a great time of year to plan all of the exciting things that we have planned for the warmer months. In particular, as it warms up, it is a great time to start thinking about the types of parties that your backyard can be used for. In particular, let’s take a look at some of the great kids oriented themed-party ideas you can throw in your backyard…

Makeshift water park

Under the hot summer sun, nothing is quite as refreshing as enjoying the joys that can be provided by a cool splash of water. It’s for this exact reason that water parties are such a popular activity during the summertime. Setting a pool up for your kids and their friends to lounge in, or even a slip-n-slide for them to have fun with, can make for a relaxing summer party. Even if you didn’t want to go all out with an entire pool, simply throwing on the sprinklers and getting some squirt guns or water balloons can provide kids with hours and hours of fun.

Outdoor movie night

Summer is usually the time when all of the big blockbuster movies come out, every year. However, you don’t need to spend a million dollars on tickets and popcorn to enjoy the movies when you can enjoy a showing in your own backyard. With nothing more than a projector, some speakers, and a sheet to hang on the side of your house, you can enjoy an evening at the movies with your kids. Setting up a popcorn stand and a cooler with drinks makes this party an especially relaxing time. The best part is that you can watch whatever you want on the big screen, no matter what year it came out!

Carnival party

If you don’t mind putting in a little extra work, and want to have a backyard party with a little more pazazz, then a carnival-themed party might be exactly what you are looking for. To do this, get some carnival-inspired decorations and come up with some outdoor party games (such as bobbing for apples, or even cricket). Set up a food tent with popcorn, a cotton candy machine, and other goodies to have a really good time. This is a party where you can really let your imagination go wild.
