How to Throw a Pool Party

May 27, 2014

Summer is here which means it is time to party – around the pool that is! Grab your swimsuits, make a playlist and get ready to throw the best pool party ever. Not sure where to start? Kidzworld has tips on how to organize and plan a great day by the water.

Pick a Date

Before you do anything else, you will need to choose a date for your pool party. Depending on the amount of guests you plan to invite, you might want to ask them what works best. If you are inviting more than a handful of friends, it will probably be easier to choose a day and hope that most people can attend.

Send the Invites

As soon as you know the day of the party send out the invitations so people don’t make other plans. You can send informal invitations through email and text message or you can get really creative and make your own!

Plan the Menu

If your party is going to last for a few hours or more, you will want to provide some sort of snack and drinks for your guests. Ask your parents if you can have a budget for this portion of the event. Choose easy foods that guests can nibble on as they get hungry. Alternatively, you might also want to BBQ hamburgers or hot dogs. Fill a cooler with ice and cans of soda so guests can help themselves as they get thirsty.

Make a Music Playlist

Music is key to any party! Make a music playlist ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about flipping through your iPod the day of the event. Ask your friends if they have favorite songs they might want to hear.

Party!

On the day of the party remember to have fun and try to relax. Ask a friend, sibling or parent to help you prepare the food and drinks ahead of time. You might also want to put up a few basic decorations to set the mood.

Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
