Back to School Pool Party

It’s that time of year again — time to think about getting back into the swing of morning routines before school and homework. But before the kids hit the books, think about hosting a back to school pool party to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of another year!

The ideas are endless, so let your creativity flow. But just to get you on the right track here are some fun ideas to think about at the backyard pool party:

Games: Water balloons, float races, Marco Polo, doggie paddle contest, belly flop contest, water tag, or invent games associated with going back to school like a swimming spelling bee or a math game…just to get the brain working!

Food and drink: sandwiches, juice boxes, popsicles, ice cream, pizza, lemonade, Kool-Aid, hot dogs and burgers, fruit, and a cake in the shape of a school bus

Décor and invites: letters and numbers, school bus, backpacks, pencils, crayons, anything that is reminiscent of school or learning.
