Valley Pool and Spa Kelowna Swimming pool service





It’s almost that time again!  Sadly summer is coming to an end and the kids are heading back to school soon.  What’s a great way to kick off the school year with a big splash?  A swimming pool party for the kids!  Pool parties make great memories for the kids heading into the new school year.



Here are a few tips to make your party a success!



Have some great games and toys!  Kids have a great time just swimming and splashing around but make sure you have some great games planned out to make your party even more fun.  Games like Marco Polo or Volleyball are good ones.  If you planning on some games be sure that you have the needed equipment on hand.  Having some great pool toys around is another great idea to consider.  Kids love big inflatables, pool noodles and diving rings.  Keep in mind when gathering toys for your party you are thinking about the age of the kids that are coming.  Even the teens love pool toys!


Have some light snacks on hand through the day!  When outside playing in the sun and water, snacks that are light and refreshing are a great choice. Everyone loves fresh fruit, veggies and dip, cheese and crackers.  Don’t forget to have lots of water and drinks on hand to keep everyone hydrated in the heat.  Try to avoid pop or other sugary drinks, there is nothing better than water for keeping people hydrated which is important in the sun.


Invite the parents!  When having a swimming pool party for the kids it is important to have as many eyes on the kids as possible.  Check out swimming pool safety tips for the kids.  Make sure all the kids know the rules before entering the pool.  You want to make sure you have a safe and fun party!


Sunscreen!  You may want to have some extra sunscreen on hand for your guests.  No one likes getting burnt.
