Dont make the party too long. 4 hours is plenty. Have swimming, a barbecue, open gifts and then dessert.

You have so many options with the pool that you should be able to plan a fun day no matter how long a party you want to have.

Be sure to set an end time so the other parents know when to pick up their kids.

Pace the day out so you have one major activity scheduled every 60 to 90 minutes. Depending on how many kids come, some kids may want to laze around in the pool. Some may participate.

You can do a scavenger hunt (the winner get a prize--maybe a gift card for iTunes or whatever these kids are into), have a cook out, offer games like corn hole (where you have the wood bins and people toss bags filled with corn into the hole).


You could have prizes for the highest scores. You can put up a net (if you have room) and have volley ball or beach ball matches. You can (if you have a fire pit) have s'more making time. If you want the party to go into the evening and have the ability to set up a TV outside or a tablet or computer with one of those projector converters, you could do movie time (hang a white sheet and watch movies). Serve pop corn and pop/soda. Be sure to plan activities that can easily be converted to indoor if you get rain.

Wishing your daughter blessings on her birthday!! Enjoy!!

Happy Early Birthday to your daughter!

A pool party sounds like fun! BBQ or Pizza with finger foods.


You can do pool party game activities: like volleyball or dodge ball in the pool.

Or, at that age - just having music on and the kids talking to each other is plenty fun!

The important thing is: What does your daughter want to do? Kids that age may balk at planned activities. Is your pool set up to play water volleyball or games with floaties?

Be sure to have an adult or two to watch the pool. Even kids that age can get into trouble in deep water.
