Catch My Party

You don’t have to have an in-ground pool to throw a pool party.  This great idea from Catch My Party uses inflatable pools in your backyard.

Gather up a bunch of inflatable pools from Walmart, Target, Amazon, or other discount store, they come in all shapes and sizes, some even have slides and other fun stuff.

Blow them up and set them up in your backyard. Instant pool party!

Don’t forget pool toys such as beach balls, squirt guns, and bubbles!

I love this idea of serving ice cream in jars, but I’m not crazy about kids + pool + glass; it’s an accident just waiting to happen.
It would be a good idea to use clear plastic take-out bowls with lids instead!

Kandy Kreations
Keep a bucket of frozen ice pops, guests can grab them to keep cool.  Tie a small pair of scissors to the bucket handle to cut off tops, nothing is grosser than watching a kid tear it off with his teeth and spit out the little plastic bits!
