OUR SIMPLE HOMEMADE PARADISE
I'm a gal who finds pleasure in keeping things simple. As a mom, I have found that the less stressful something is, the more fun it is. Every time. He's how I did it:
Check out the fun tunes that kissed our party with some happy vibes.
Here's a list of the fun we had and some ideas for your next backyard bash: water balloon fights, water balloon toss, frisbee toss, chalk, swimming, marshmallow & hot dog roast, scavenger hunt, stories in the dark by the fire or inside the tent. The best part about when it got dark were the glow sticks. We decked out the tent with glow sticks which was home base and then we covered ourselves in glow necklaces and bracelets so you could clearly see your target when firing the water balloons at one another. Also, putting glow sticks in the pool and swimming in the dark with The Party-Saurus Rex Song playing was so cool! Check out the pictures below for a snapshot of our "glow night!"
The Grand Finale!
Our water balloon glow party was a huge success! It was truly a magical moment our whole family will never forget and the best part is...it all happened in our everyday backyard. I'm looking forward to Phase 2 of our Staycation very soon; maybe next weekend!
