Summer birthday parties can be a lot of fun

Summer birthday parties can be a lot of fun, especially since the weather is usually nice and warm. Here are some ideas to make them extra special:

  • Remember to plan ahead close friends and relatives may to traveling with their own families.
  • Host an outdoor party: Take advantage of the warm weather and host the party outside. You could have a picnic in a park or set up a backyard BBQ with games and activities.
  • Water activities: Water games and activities can be a great way to keep your guests cool and entertained. Consider renting a water slide, setting up a kiddie pool, or having a water balloon fight.
  • Summer-themed decorations: Incorporate summer-themed decorations into your party to make it feel festive. You could use bright colors, beach balls, or even create a DIY photo booth with summer props.
  • Seasonal treats: Serve seasonal treats like popsicles, ice cream, and fresh fruit. You could even have a build-your-own ice cream sundae bar.
  • Outdoor movie night: Set up an outdoor movie screening with a projector, blankets, and snacks. This can be a fun and unique way to celebrate a summer birthday.
  • Scavenger hunt: Plan a scavenger hunt around the party location or nearby park. This can be a fun and interactive way to keep guests engaged and entertained.
  • Campfire party: If the party is in the evening, you could have a campfire with s’mores and storytelling. This can be a cozy and memorable way to celebrate a summer birthday.


Remember to keep your guests’ comfort in mind when planning a summer birthday party. Provide shade, sunscreen, and plenty of water to ensure everyone stays cool and hydrated throughout the festivities.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
