Celebrating your kids’ birthday party on a water themed-park is a sure hit. However, it is quite expensive and will definitely hurt your bank account.

A party will not be complete without games. Here are some activities you can prepare.

  • Water Balloon Piñata- instead of using the usual piñata and candies, you can replace it with balloons filled with water. String those balloons on a pole and let the kids pop them one by one using dart pins.
  • Water Balloon Dodgeball – kids will definitely have fun aiming for their target. Just ensure that the area is not slippery to avoid accidents.
  • Fill the bucket – divide the guests into two teams and let them fill the bucket placed on a designated area. You can either use plastic cups or sponge to transfer the water from the pool (or any source) to the bucket.

Most importantly, don’t forget to remind your guests to bring their swimwear and extra clothes.
