When the school year is over, many kids are happy to get out of classes but sad about leaving their friends. At the same time, parents may dread finding ways to entertain their kids during the summer period, especially if they’re not going to camp. One great solution to this is to encourage kids to work on throwing a backyard summer party. This will allow them to see and catch up with their friends, and allowing them to plan it themselves will keep them busy. Plus, by having the kids plan the party themselves, the party can be affordable at any budget.

First, encourage your kids to think about food and drinks and to learn how to prepare them. Don’t let them spend a ton of money on chips, soda, and ice cream. Instead, let them look up recipes and prepare their own lemonade, popsicles, and sandwiches. This cuts costs, but more importantly, it teaches them valuable life skills. Encourage your kids to be creative and come up with interesting dishes to share. They’ll remember the experience and lessons long after the party is over.

If you’re like many people today, you have little for going on leisurely shopping trips to purchase gifts for family and friends. That doesn’t mean you don’t have a generous heart and a desire to acknowledge their special day or a special occasion. It’s just that you’re functioning on overload day after day.

A jam-packed schedule can also limit your opportunities for having a party or even for planning a simple social gathering with a few friends. With a little creativity and some dual-purpose party decor, you can enjoy those festive moments without increasing your stress level. Chances are, many of your friends are experiencing the same time crunch that you are. Working together on food preparation and keeping the menu simple is a good way to continue enjoying social gatherings. Choosing a fun theme for a party gives you a specific focus and can simplify the preparation process.
