More than half of my families birthdays are in the summer months, and being in Arizona it’s almost impossible to throw an outdoor birthday party. The key word here is “almost” impossible. In order to make this more possible and fun, I have curated a list of my ten favorite summer birthday ideas!
If you’re like me you don’t always want to go out and spend $$$ on indoor venues for that fun summer birthday party. There are plenty of ways to save your money and still throw a great birthday party. I love saving money for special moments like these with my family. We are big on using Walmart Family Mobile $49.88 PLUS Plan which is powered by T mobile, Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 15GB of 4G LTE † then 2G*. My favorite aspect of Walmart Family Mobile is that you aren’t required to sign a contract and you avoid all those annoying activation fees!

Like any summer your best bet of enjoying anytime under the sun would be to include water! It’s refreshing, fun and it’s a sure way to win over any party guests!
If you have access to a pool, take advantage and create neat games for your guest to play while swimming! Here are a few ideas that have been a success with kids during pool parties! PS Always remember to take safety precautions when in or near a pool! Don’t forget your life jackets for those younger ones!
- Scavenger Hunt- Toss in some heavy items that are sure to sink and which ever team gathers the most of the items on their list wins!
- Jousting on Pool floaties- two against each other, each played straddles their floaties with using a pool noodle to try and knock down their friendly opponent!
There are so many great kid friendly and adult pool games that will elevate your pool party status and make the party a hit!
What better way to stay refreshed out doors during summer than fresh fruit! There are some cute and creative ways to incorporate fruit into games like watermelon eating contest, or bobbing for peaches!
Ice Cream Bar
If you have enough room in your freezer, You should stock up on a variety of different ice creams and create a fun Ice Cream Bar serving station. It would be fun to offer a variety of toppings and sauces too!
Water Gun Fun
I’d like to think this could be fun for all ages especially if you’re enjoying the outdoors in summer. My theory is as long as your wet or have water near by to spray or jump in you can enjoy being outside! I would recommend placing buckets of Ice water around with little water guns for your guest!
If you guys haven’t heard of a sponge ball, it’s basically a sponge cut into strips and then held together by a rubber band or string to create a ball shape. It’s great to have a bunch of these placed in a bucket of water and have for guests to surprise their friends with a splat of water! You can even get creative with this and incorporate these balls into a game like tag!
If the weather doesn’t permit for outdoor fun because let’s face it sometimes it just too hot out. Sleep overs can make a great alternative to a birthday party. You can still incorporate games and snacks so it still have that Birthday Party feel kids love so much.
This is often our biggest hit as our family loves movies! With Walmart Family Mobile $49.88 PLUS Plan will receive a free VUDU◊ movie rental credit valued at $7.00 each time they renew their service. VUDU◊ offers a great selection of movie titles and there is always somthing for everyone.
There is a endless amount of games you can do with water balloons here are a few of my favorites!
- Spoon and water balloon race
- Water balloon baseball
- Free for all water balloon fight
- Water balloon basket catch
- Water balloon pinata
Slip and Slides
This is an easy way to transform a back yard into a water wonderland!
