Water, a kiddie pool and a nice programme with water games and handicrafts – these are the most important ingredients for a kiddie pool party. Here you’ll find free suggestions for invitations, decorations, crafts, games, snacks and gifts. You’ll make the eyes of little mermaids and mermen light up.

Water is the biggest thing for your child and you’re thinking of having a pool party? Great idea – a pool party is easy for anyone to set up and one of the most fun children’s birthday parties you can have. Children as young as 3 years old have the time of their lives with age-appropriate games and a small programme. While a kiddie pool is quite sufficient for small kids, you should ideally set up a larger pool or celebrate in the swimming pool for a kiddie pool party for children from 8-13 years.

You can celebrate a kiddie pool party in your own garden, at the lake, on the beach or in the swimming pool. A super original idea is a kiddie pool party in winter in an indoor pool – the party programme consists of nice games with a manageable group of kids so that you can relax and supervise all the children.

Here you’ll find ideas for a complete children’s birthday party – from the invitation, decoration, programme, food and drinks to gifts to match the theme!

Good games are the be-all and end-all of a successful kiddie pool party. In this text, under 4, 5 and 6, you will find three special programme points that consist of one or more games. On Abenteuer Freundschaft you will find even more games with water and water balloon games for kids.

10 Brilliant Tips and Creative Ideas for a Kiddie Pool Party

"Ideas for the invitation, about decorations, special pool party games to giveaways for the kiddie pool party"

Fun water games are part of any kiddie pool party

Water, pool or paddling pool and towel – that’s what everyone needs for a kiddie pool party. There are many ways to decorate this theme party and you don’t have to spend a lot of money (even though you could easily, there are so many great decorations, accessories, gadgets and giveaways).

A recommended set-up for the kiddie pool party is to unpack the presents first, then do some crafts (or play games) with the grown-ups to match the party, then there is a big game highlight such as a water pinata, the water Olympics or the exam to become a state-approved mermaid or merman or alternative 2-3 small games, then something small is eaten for lunch or the birthday cake is cut and then splashing around in the pool.

You should ask yourself one important question right at the beginning: Will the kiddie pool party have a special theme? If your daughter is an enthusiastic little mermaid or your son is a fan of diving, then pick the theme and make it the motto for the entire pool party!

Ideas for Themes

  • Mermaid Party
  • Underwater party
  • Shark Alert
  • Water Olympics
  • Diving Party
  • Pirate Party

1. What Do I Need for a Kiddie Pool Party?

What, when, where and above all how: The W-questions are always at the beginning of the party planning. Sit back and relax in your deck chair and think about when and where the children’s birthday party will take place, what the programme should be and what is needed for it.

  • Where will the party take place? In the indoor pool, in the garden, on the beach or at the lake?
  • Do I need more parents as supervisors?
  • When does the kiddie pool party take place?
  • How much time do I have for the programme?
  • Which programme should take place? Several small games and small handicrafts or a big Olympiad or exam?
  • What accessories do I need for games and craft projects?
  • What is there to eat and drink?
  • What will the children take home as a souvenir?

2. Kiddie Pool Party Invitation

Craft the invitations together with your child. This is a lot of fun – especially if the pool party invitation is something very special.

The invitation should include the following information:

  • Invitation to [name] Pool Party
  • Where? | When? | From? | Until?
  • Bring along:

3. Deco for the Kiddie Pool Party

The decoration should above all create a party atmosphere, after all it is a special children’s birthday party! Decorate the table to match the theme with plates in the shape of pineapples or shells, balloons with flowers and matching garlands that convey an exotic holiday feeling. Or can you go with the ocean theme and keep everything blue with shark, whale and mermaid motifs?

Pennant garlands and lanterns look great.

Use inflatable water animals, swimming rings, beach balls, beach loungers, water spray guns as decoration that is also played with.

4. Water Piñata

Piñatas actually come from Latin America and are colourful papier-mache figures that are smashed. In the meantime, this actually traditional game is also very popular here at children’s birthday parties and celebrations.

For our kiddie pool party, we have a special variant: instead of smashing a piñata, you tie many balloons filled with water and some shrink-wrapped sweets to a rope at equal intervals. Hang the rope tautly above the children’s heads. Now they get sticks and are allowed to jump and hit the balloons to their heart’s content until they burst. Great fun!

5. State-certified Mermaids and Aquamen

The big test to become a state-approved mermaid or merman consists of 4 small games that are all played together and are suitable for young children from the age of 4. At the end, each child receives a medal.

  1. Test: Dive in the pool for submerged objects and blindfolded one after the other with the help of the others (right! left!) retrieve a certain object, which you call as soon as the child is blindfolded.
  2. Examination: Shooting cans with water spray guns.
  3. Test: Water bomb fight – children against adults. It is particularly funny for older children if the adult(s) dress up as the “enemy”, for example, surprisingly as a shark and guard the water bomb store. For this, you can simply tie on a shark fin and don’t have to slip into a full-body costume. 🙂
  4. Test: Pose as a mermaid with mermaid tail and an aquarius with trident pose in the pool and perform a beautiful feat that you photograph as a keepsake. Preferably with a Polaroid camera, then each child can take their photo home with them.

6. The Great Water Olympics

The big water Olympics is a nice main programme item for children from 6 years onwards: everyone is allowed to show their talent! However, the prerequisite is that a real pool is available and not just a small paddling pool. The Water Olympics are great for a pool party at the swimming pool – the children can jump in without any danger.

Beforehand, each athlete decides on a discipline or figure and announces it loudly. Now everyone trains their discipline.

Then it starts, the first athlete announces their discipline and performs it to a jury (adult chaperones, parents and siblings). The jury announces a score out loud from 1-10, which is decided together. Finally, there is an award ceremony for the first three places with medals.

Examples Of Disciplines and Figures.

  • Salto
  • Water bomb
  • Dolphin jump
  • Roll under water

7. Craft Ideas for the Kiddie Pool Party

There are also many boys who like to do handicrafts. But most children’s birthday parties for boys are designed with more movement and frolicking, i.e. with games. Most girls (and of course one or two boys) love to do handicrafts. Getting creative together with a pool party themed craft is a wonderful programme item – and every child can proudly take home something very special they made themselves.

9. Birthday Cake and Snacks

A birthday includes a birthday cake – or waffles, muffins or even an ice cream cake? I have made the experience that children usually eat less than planned at a children’s birthday party and a lot is left over. It’s best to stick to what most children love.

If it is very hot and you distribute the popsicles, the children will certainly pounce on them with greater enthusiasm than on a piece of cake.

  • Ice cake with surprise inside (there are small figures to bake in / freeze)
  • Decorate your own ice cream
  • Ice wafers
  • Birthday cake with candles to blow out
  • Muffins
  • Brownies
  • Waffles
  • Pancakes
  • Fruit platter with strawberries, melon, seasonal fruit
  • Small salted pretzels
  • Chips

10. Kiddie Pool Party Souvenirs

Small favours are now almost expected. For a kiddie pool party, small water toys such as small water guns or reusable water balloons are great and cheap. Classics are matching tattoos, pens (with mermaid tails) and a few sweets.
