8 Ways to Plan the Perfect Outdoor Kids Part

Are you planning an outdoor party for your child this summer? Summer is great. There is fresh air, sun, and if you’re lucky, space for everyone to gather and play. But without proper planning, your outdoor party might not be the success you hoped for.

I’m Graham Rogers, owner of Arizona Foam Fun, Arzona’s premier foam party company. After serving parties in Arizona for years, I’ve noticed some crucial to-do’s and not to do’s to make your party successful, amazing, and fun.

This article will reveal eight simple things to remember to make your outdoor party one to remember.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #1: Have a Backup Plan

No one likes to think about rain ruining their party. But Mother Nature is unpredictable. You want the best party experience possible, for you, your children, and your guests. Do yourself a favor. Have a backup plan in case it rains.

Plan plenty of inexpensive indoor activities in case it rains. From movies to video games to food, there is plenty to do indoors if you get rained out.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #2: Plan Multiple Activities

Kids like variety. And sometimes they may want to switch activities. If you’re having a pool party, kids may want to get out of the pool and dry off. If you have a bounce house or other outdoor activity, they may get tired and want a breather.

For this reason and others, have a few different outdoor activities planned. By giving the kids choices, they won’t feel as much of a need to create their own fun…driving you crazy in the process!

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #3: Let Parents Know the Details

Are you planning a pool or foam party? If so, you’ll want to let parents know ahead of time. You’ll want your guests to know what they need. Let them know to bring towels, a change of clothes, swimwear, etc.

Be sure to tell parents other details, like times, what food you are planning, and more. If some kids have allergies, letting parents know what food you are serving is crucial. Be sure to note in the invitation to let you know in case of any allergies.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #4: Beware Your Lawn Services

Do you have your lawn periodically sprayed for bugs or other pets? Be sure to plan these pest services so your lawn and shrubs are not freshly treated when it’s time for your party. Many of these pesticides can be harmful to people and pets.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #5: Take Care of Babies and Toddlers

To keep the very little ones safe, consider having a separate area prepared just for them. Having blankets spread out helps prevent bee stings or other accidents. Have a shaded area for these kiddos to prevent sunburn or heat stroke.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #6: Keep Everyone Hydrated

It’s easy to become dehydrated outside during Arizona summers. Stock up on plenty of cold water for your guests. Many parents offer kids fruit drinks or soda. But these drinks are usually loaded with sugar. They don’t provide the hydration needed when everyone is running around outside.

If possible, stick with water. It’s better and healthier for you and your guests. Keep an eye on the kids’ energy levels. Familiarize yourself with the signs of dehydration. Step in if needed. Which brings me to…

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #7: Supervision Required

Never let the children run around unsupervised. Kids and kids. They’ll test boundaries, create their own crazy activities, and act without regard for their safety. Kids have not learned their limits. Make sure the children are supervised by at least one adult at all times.

Perfect Outdoor Kids Party Tip #8: First Aid Kit

You never know what could happen during an outdoor party. With minor precautions, nothing major should happen. But keep a first aid kit handy for minor bumps, scrapes, and bruises.

While you are at it, add a note in your invitations about outdoor allergies. If one of your guests is allergic to bees, for example, you’ll want to be prepared in case they get stung.
