When your child has a summer birthday, there are endless options for outdoor fun. Turn your backyard into a magical world with any of these summer birthday ideas for kids, all of which center around a theme you can build on. Don’t forget to discuss themes with your child so the party is the wonderful experience they deserve.
Summertime Birthday Party Ideas
1. Mud Run
Remake your backyard into a mud run just for kids. Instruct everyone to wear bathing suits and create obstacles using old tires, large cardboard boxes, and caution tape. Add slip-n-slides® to the mix and consider covering them with mud. If you have the space, turn a patch of dirt into a mud pit. Keep the theme going with mud cake and dark-colored drinks. Hose the kids off when the party's over and provide plenty of fluffy towels.
2. Water Park
Create a water park in your backyard with the aforementioned slip-n-slides, as well as sprinklers and kiddie pools. Outdoor party rentals such as inflatable slides also add to the water park fun, as do bubble stations so kids can blow bubbles for an “under the sea” effect. You can also include sand castle and water balloon areas.
Fulfill your child’s wish for a dino-themed birthday party by making a dinosaur bounce house the backyard centerpiece. These bounce houses feature inflatable dinosaurs seemingly emerging from the top and sides of the structures, as well as inflatable slides. Other ideas include lava-style cakes, kiddie pools filled with sand and “dino bones” for kids to find, and lots of safari and nature-inspired touches.
There are endless pirate birthday ideas for kids, including “pirate makeover” stations featuring eye patches, hats, and neck scarves. Import sand to pile on top of buried treasure or chests filled with party favors. Also, devise a scavenger hunt for the kids to find treasures hidden somewhere in your yard.
Go the classic princess party route using bounce house rentals. Some companies offer inflatable princess carriages to make parties extra magical. Also, add plenty of tulle to tables and chairs, stick to pink and purple-colored treats, and provide princess dresses for guests to change into upon arrival. If you do not want to invest in dresses, opt for plastic tiaras and scepters.
