If you’re looking for ideas to make your child’s party special, summer is a great time to throw a kids’ party in the garden. They’ll get plenty of exercise, fresh air and enjoyment, just by being in the garden.
To help you throw a birthday bash this summer, Life & Style have put together a kids’ garden party checklist for a party to remember. Now that we have been getting better weather, it feels like a great time to throw a garden celebration!
Kids will leap into action when you set up a trampoline in your back garden. Depending on the size, there is a trampoline suitable to fit any space. If you’re planning to have a small gathering, the little ones will get great enjoyment from an 8ft trampoline. Featuring a protective safety enclosure, this is a great choice for first time bouncers. For medium to large gardens, a 10ft trampoline is brilliant for a party with more guests.
Inflatables are a popular entertainment choice for a kid’s party. The fun never ends when you choose a Happy Hop air balloon bouncy castle. Featuring a see-through window and slide, it is powered up by an electric blower to ensure it stays inflated for hours of play.
Bouncy castles are a great alternative if you feel your garden is too small for a trampoline and easy to store away in your shed for future parties. What’s more, adults can also get a turn when the kids are all bounced out.
Swings & Slides
Instead of taking the kids to the park, why not bring it to your back garden with a slide? Recreating the hours of fun that can be had at the park right outside your backdoor. Create a stimulating environment for the party with a slide. Even better, have it end in a paddling pool, ideal for a hot summer’s day.
Swings are another park staple that offer brilliant garden fun and turn your outdoor space into an adventure centre. Give young children a gentle push, while the older ones will naturally want to go higher and higher.
Alternative Outdoor Activities
The key to ensuring all the kids enjoy the party is making sure there are exciting outdoor toys and entertainment to keep them busy.
Set up a face painting station so the little ones can sparkle in their favourite colours, or one of their favourite Disney characters. Face painting is a must for any party, kits can be purchased and used to great effect to create homemade animals and unique characters. What child doesn’t love face paint? Again don’t be surprised to see adults getting stuck in at the face paint station.
An outdoor party is a great budget-friendly way to keep everyone entertained while welcoming guests into your home. Asda have a great selection of party food as well as outdoor toys that will make the day fly by for little guests.
