A swimming pool or hot tub* party is a special way to celebrate any child’s birthday. Create whimsical invitations using flip-flop or fish-shaped cutouts, or write the party information on beach balls and mail them to guests in oversize envelopes. Activities can be tailored to the interests of the age group. Younger children will enjoy classic pool games like Sharks and Minnows, Marco Polo and cannonball contests. Organize a water-gun battle or provide amenities for a girls’ spa-themed party. Plan a light menu with sliced fruit, half-sandwiches, goldfish crackers, and boxed juice drinks for kids.
*For children, hot tub water temperature should not exceed 99 degrees.
