Now that summer is here, people may decide to have a water-park or themed party.

Here are some fun ideas for this type of party:

Have a water balloon fight! Play Water Balloon Volleyball: You’ll need lots of water balloons stored in a bucket full of water and towels for each pair of children. Divide children into two groups. Pair them off and give each pair a beach towel. One side begins by placing a water balloon in the center of their towel. Each child holds onto one or two corners of the towel in their hands. The object is to toss the water balloon over the net with the opposing side catching the balloon in their towel. The volley continues until one side misses and the balloon breaks, giving the other team a point. First team to 15 wins.shutterstock_3700390

The volley continues until one side misses and the balloon breaks giving the other team a point. First team to 15 wins. Variation: If you do not own a volleyball net, put two pairs of kids a distance apart and have them volley back and forth.

Variation for young children: Instead of beach towels use two large blankets. Divide into teams, and each team member holds a part of the blanket. Toss the balloon back and forth between teams. Not too tough with a bit of teamwork.

Make sure to carefully clean up the balloon remains, as they are a choking hazard for young children.

Give out plastic squirt guns and fill them up so the kids can run around with them squirting water at one another. They can also keep the toy as a party favor.
