Swim Party Ideas?

My 14 year old daughter wanted to have a pool party for her birthday. Her birthday is in February, so she waited till summer. We have a pool in our back yard.

She wants to have it for 5 hours. We have decided on a luau theme, but I'm not sure what activities they should do. They are 13 and 14 year old girls and boys. They will be going to swimming and having cake, but that leaves 2 hours of nothing to do. She wants to have the party from 6 to 11 pm so we can do fire works. What else should we do?

I would say to include some fun pool floats from the dollar store or ask each guest to bring their own for racing. My son bought a whale to ride for a tubing weekend. It was the funniest thing to see him riding his whale. His girlfriend had a boat because she didn't want to get her hair wet (that was short lived). Maybe you could find something like that and have some races.

A beach ball to bat around the pool, water guns. Make sure there is music playing, plenty of food and they will create their own party.

Music and dance while everyone is arriving. Games, snacks, karioke. Maybe set up a movie outside. Later, swim and play games, eat cake and open gifts. Watch the fireworks. Besides the limbo, try twister, horse shoes, volleyball, anything that will keep them active and let different groups do different things. Good luck!

How about the limbo game/dance?
How about a karioke machine (away from pool)?
Decorate individual cupcakes or 3 or so larger cakes (in groups - award prizes).

Limbo contests are always a winner - "how low can you go?" lol! Pool volleyball with mid-sized beach balls could be fun, too.

For 14 year olds, you can have a diving contest with the diving sticks you buy at kmart or walmart or I think even the dollar store has something similar. Then for the winner give em a buck or two or a prize? Another thing, Water balloon fights are fun, Playing a dogs.
