Summer is in full swing, and that means the kids have probably already complained of boredom more than once. While giving them chores anytime the phrase “I’m bored” is uttered will stop the complaining pretty quickly, there is something to said for helping the kids entertain themselves from time to time.
Why not do this by throwing a big summer bash? Not only will your kids think you are the coolest parent ever, but you will probably end up having fun too.
Of course, if you are going to plan a get-together, you will need some refreshments. Cold sodas or juice boxes set out in a wading pool filled with ice is a quick solution to any drink dilemmas you may run into. For food, try to come up with some simple finger foods to set out. Pretzels, popcorn, and cookies are all inexpensive and easy to come by, making them ideal options for your summer party. Popsicles are also appreciated by kids of all ages, especially on those hot summer days when the temperature reaches 100°F.
When it comes to fun, there are plenty of great options, and not one of them requires guests to make their way into your house. A water balloon or water gun fight is always great fun, and a simple slip-and-slide made using a tarp and some baby oil is an easy way to keep kids busy for hours.
If you’re looking for a way to bring the party up a notch, consider renting a party train! A colorful, kid-sized train will entertain all of your kids and their friends for an entire afternoon, leaving you to enjoy a day free of the phrase, “I’m bored.”
