The beauty of having a picnic to accompany the watermelon party is you can use activities you’re probably very familiar with, but your kids and their friends may have never even played before!
Burlap sack races, bean bag toss, wheel barrow and 3-legged races will keep kids busy and adults thoroughly entertained. And don’t forget about incorporating the watermelon into the games:
Roll, Eat, Spit!
Aka Roll the watermelon in a watermelon race, Eat the watermelon in a watermelon eating contest and Spit the seeds in a seed spitting contest. I mean how often do we really ask that our kids spit!? They’ll love it.
For the favors these mini picnic baskets adorned with “thanks for coming to my birthday picnic!” tags (care of PartyOnPurpose of course) are totally fitting. Or you could skip the usual “treats in a bag” type favor and send your guests home with a jar of watermelon jam.
So much fun to be had and so little time! Watermelon Party week comes to a close tomorrow when we’ll share our inspiration board and announce the winner of our giveaway so if you haven’t entered to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop yet, remember all you have to do is leave a comment on any post this week and you’re in!
