DIY Pool Party Birthday Invitations

DIY Pool Party Birthday Invitations

Pool parties are perfect for summer birthday celebrations since everyone can take a break from the hot beating sun and cool off. Kids can jump in with their floaties and play Marco Polo and water freeze tag for hours. Plus, swimming can be exhausting so by the end of the night your little rugrat will be fast asleep.

So fill the pool or bust out the sprinklers and water slides-cause we’re having a party! Whatever the case, expose your party guests to some pool party fun and remind them to arrive in their swimsuits.

People overlook the importance of party invitations. Not only are they informative, but they also give your guests insight on what to expect at the actual party. Greet your kid’s friends with color and pizzazz when they open your invitations. You will still be telling them the who, what, where, and when, it’ll just be in a creative way. Invitations are peeping holes to amazing experiences!

So when you and your child send them out, what reaction do you think his or her friends will have? Will the party read thrilling, exciting, or adventurous? Will you guys give them something to look forward to? Make up games and contests, who over comes up with the most enjoyable pool game wins a prize!  Or have an ice cream table with yummy ingredients and whoever made the tastiest sundae (judged by the birthday girl/boy, of course) wins a special goody bag.

  Prizes can be as simple as a summer coloring book with crayons or a gift bag with flip flops, sunglasses, & sunscreen! These are all fun things to consider.
