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.
