How's it going? ☀️ Summer's here, and kids whose birthdays fall during the vacations want a party that will let them be king of the playground when school starts. 🦩 So here are some creative and fun themes for children's summer birthday parties. These aren't the usual princess or superhero themes - they're fresh, trendy and perfect for summer. If you're looking to throw an unforgettable party, these ideas are sure to make your child's day even more special.

1. Splash Art Party

This one’s a blast!  Picture this: canvases and water balloons filled with non-toxic, washable paint. 🎨 The kids get to throw the balloons at the canvases and create their own splash art masterpieces. It’s messy, it’s fun, and our Instaparty vendors can supply all the art materials and even an artist to guide the kids. Trust me, they’ll love it!

2. Tropical Luau

Who doesn’t love a good luau?  Grass skirts, leis, and tiki torches set the scene. You can even hire a local vendor through Instaparty for a mini hula lesson or a fire dance performance. 🍍 And don’t forget the fruity mocktails and pineapple everything – it’s like a mini vacation in your backyard.

Bring the carnival to your backyard with colorful tents, games, and cotton candy machines. 🎡 Instaparty has vendors for carnival rides and classic games like ring toss and dunk tanks. 🎠 Perfect for keeping the kids entertained and on a sugar high!

4. Safari Adventure

Turn your yard into a wild safari expedition. 🦁 Jungle-themed decorations, a treasure hunt for “animal” footprints, and maybe even rent a few exotic petting animals. 🐯 Instaparty vendors can help with safari hats and a mini zoo setup. 🦓 The kids will go wild exploring and discovering new animals.

5. Science Lab Party

How about a science-themed party that’s both fun and educational? 🧪 Set up different experiment stations where kids can make slime, volcanoes, or even homemade rockets. 🌋 Instaparty vendors can provide lab coats, safety goggles, and all the materials needed. 🥽 Plus, a local science entertainer can perform some mind-blowing demos.
