Beat The Heat With a Fun Active Indoor Summer Party With Your Kids


The summer heat can become unbearable in many areas of the country. We all want to encourage our kids to stay fit and active but it can be difficult to get them outside when the temperatures soar. If your kids’ birthdays fall during the summer months wouldn’t it be great to have an affordable, active party away from the heat? Now you can!

Pump It Up, the nation’s largest franchise of indoor inflatable playgrounds specializing in private parties for birthdays, and programs, such as corporate events, school outings, field trips and other events, and The Healthy Moms Magazine want you and your kids to have a “weatherproof” Birthday party. Below are a few tips from Pump It Up:

“1) Halloween in the Summer

Having a costume themed party In the middle of the summer is nice surprise for kids who only expect a fun Halloween party in the month of October. Let your child choose a theme for the party and then put together a fun haunted house in the garage.

2) Craft Party

For girls, a jewelry making get-together can be an fun, bonding experience. For boys, provide the group of kids with some leggos and let them build their own creatures or buildings. Then, each child can take home what they made!

3) A Night at the Movies

Turn your home into a decked out movie theater. Create a candy station and a popcorn bar, just like you would see it at the movies. Set up a pretend register where kids use play money to purchase their candy and treats. That way, they won’t be able to over-indulge in the treats and they’ll be using their math skills.

4) Scavenger Hunt

Split the group of kids up into two groups. Have them go on a scavenger hunt using different clues and activities that will lead them to the special treasure (i.e. cake or goodie bags).

5) Indoor Inflatable Party

For a stress-free party, take your group of 10 children or less to Pump It Up, the nation’s largest indoor inflatable playground. The facility’s new ‘Perfect 10’ parties are ideal for intimate birthday parties and gatherings where children can stay active and have fun indoors during the hot summer months.”
