Before you know it, it will be time to pick pumpkins and sip pumpkin spiced ANYTHING. Summer is officially winding down. Back to school commercials are on television once again and advertisements for school supplies are in the Sunday paper. County fairs are wrapping up and kids are getting ready to go back to school.
Although this may be true, we at Waters Choice think you need to celebrate! So before you begin the process of closing your pool for the season, consider holding a big BLOWOUT swimming pool party and BBQ!
Make A BIG SPLASH
Make a big splash by sending out invitations reminding your friends to bring their swimming suits, sunscreen and fun summer beach towels.
Make this party a potluck and assign each family with a side dish or dessert to bring while you provide the main course. Once it gets dark, set up a campfire complete with s’mores. This delectable treat is a true favorite!
Bring Photos and Make Scrapbook Pages
Equally important, ask each family to bring photos that represent their summer. Set up a table with construction paper, glue sticks and markers. During the party, invite everyone to make pages for their photos. They can include descriptions of their photo and write a few sentences about their excitement for the coming year. Don’t forget to punch holes in the pages and bind them together with ribbon to create a summer scrapbook of memories.
Plan Water and Land Games
Coupled with water and land games your party will be a hit! Play a pick up game like soccer or football. Organize a scavenger hunt! Water sports in the pool like “Splash!” are a ton of fun! Set up the water slide or make water balloons. This will ensure that guests stay outside and enjoy the weather and each other.
Don’t Forget to Listen Closely …
Above all, remember to listen closely to the evening summer sounds as you roast those yummy s’mores …. Those sounds will soon be replaced by the quiet of fall and winter evenings.
Next week, we’ll blog about closing your swimming pool for the winter season.
