If there’s one author that both kids and adults love, it’s Dr. Seuss! Many of us grew up reading his stories, and now we’re reading them to our kids. There are so many funny characters and silly words that you can easily turn into colorful party decorations, party food, and games kids will love. To brainstorm ideas for this party, I spent some time at the library with my son reading several Dr. Seuss books and by the time we went home, my notebook was filled with ideas.
The sun is shining, and we’re all excited to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. One of my favorite activities in the summer is visiting one of the outdoor pools or splash pads around the city. It’s a great way to keep cool while enjoying the summer weather. Pool parties can be a great party theme for all ages. It’s a theme that teens still love, but it’s fun for the younger kids too. My son’s first birthday party was held at a pool, and all of the parents were invited to go swimming with the kids too. A pool party goes with all sorts of water-themed parties like a Shark Party, Mermaid Party, Beach Party and more! For this party, I mixed in a few different pieces to help your party brainstorming.
Expectations of both parents and children run high to have the perfect party. Despite your best efforts, if you have a young or sensitive child, it is possible that your child or a guest may end up in tears at the exciting, stimulating event in which you have invested considerable time and money.
