All this needs time, so start preparing as soon as possible. First, count the number of kids invited. Then, count the number of kids who can swim and those who can't. Do you plan to invite all the parents or just a few? If just a few, how many?
Planning a pool party in the monsoons requires completely different preparations. In such a situation, make sure you have arrangements for the food and the seating.
Fun Pool Party Ideas for Kids
Before we look at the ideas, prepare the invitations and send them out. While planning a pool party, you have to keep in mind that kids are prone to small accidents. If you are going to invite kids who don't know how to swim, make sure you have some elders continuously paying attention.
Also have a first aid kit with you to take care of emergency situations. With that point taken, let's proceed to the ideas!
Here is one more for kids who know how to swim. Throw some 50 coins in the pool. You can change this number depending on the number of kids that come. Whoever gets the maximum number of coins out of the pool, is the winner.
The best theme to have at a pool party is the Hawaiian theme. Get flower and bead necklaces for everyone. Have a range of colorful mocktails for the kids by the poolside; this will make the venue look more colorful. You can have Hawaiian music and space for some dance too. The best part about having a themed party is that it keeps you involved in the party.
Kids will start preparing their costumes according to the theme, days in advance, and will be waiting for the party. You can also give the kids an open choice. They can dress according to any movie character they want.
However, this movie character should be related to water, in one way or the other. Girls can dress up like mermaids for some time, and maybe, the boys can choose to be mermen.
If you have selected a theme, as advised here, you will have to think of a favor keeping that particular theme in mind.
These were some fun pool party ideas for kids that you can think of while throwing a pool party for your kid and his friends. Planning a party that is thrown to celebrate an occasion is fine, but otherwise you should just set the kids free and let them be.
If you have the infrastructure, you can also plan a rain dance for the kids. If the kids are a little older than say 8, you can have a small music system set up too! Start planning in time to make the party a success! Best of Luck!
