Title: A Midsummer Night’s Dream Come True
It’s July and deep in the heart of Texas it is time for night parties! Why night? Well, for starters its too hot to stay out in the sun for more than an hour. If the humidity doesn’t get you the sun burn will. But don’t fret! Here are some fun tips for throwing a kid friendly evening party that your friends and family will love!
Fire Up the Grill
Summer calls for grilling. Not only does the smoky taste of barbecue and charred hotdogs make you feel nostalgic, but it also means your house stays cool because the oven is off. Throw on some kabobs, sauce up some chicken strips, and get the burgers sizzling. A great meal is minutes away.
Add Some Twinkle
Grab some string lights and some LED candles. Light up play areas and patio tables for safety and convenience. It also adds some sophistication and charm after the sunsets. Money-saver: If you don’t own any outdoor patio lights already, grab out some clear Christmas lights and use those. You get the same look without the extra cost.
Easy Drinks and Snacks
Native Texans know that it is still hot out when the sun sets. A great way to keep the little ones hydrated is by setting out coolers or ice chests packed with chilled juice pouches, bottles of water and popsicles. For easy snacks try putting out fruit and veggie trays and ice chests with individual apple sauce pouches and string cheese.
Keep the Kiddos Busy
Any parent will tell you that the difference between a great party and a stressful nightmare is whether or not the kids are having a good, safe time. A great way to keep the kids busy is to hire entertainment. A costumed character offers a constant source of entertainment that can keep the kids engaged. Use caution though- hiring a mascot means the entertainer is limited on their mobility and what activities they can do. Instead of a mascot, go with a character that has a regular costume which allows them to run around with the kids. For example, hiring a superhero offers you the ability to get the kids running around, gets them excited to interact with the character, and allows them the opportunity to burn off some energy.
