Throw a Kids' Summer Party
Who's afraid of bugs? Not these kids! Check out our easy, inexpensive ideas for hosting a backyard party that's sure to win over every creature.
Kids' Craft StationA child-size folding table offers plenty of room for crafty kids. Pile supplies in metal paint cans. We stocked ours with project materials simple enough to eliminate adult instruction: Popsicle sticks, pom-poms, glue, and pipe cleaners for creating fuzzy caterpillars. Also, provide colorful party bags with a stash of sparkly stickers. The kids can use them to carry take-home artwork.
Tip: You can rent a small folding table at rental stores for around $8, and metal paint cans are only $2 each at home improvement stores.
