Kid Friendly Summer Theme Home Party Ideas

With kiddos out of school for the Summer, booking In Home Parties can tend to be a little bit challenging. The best thing that you can do is embrace the obstacle by offering fun, kid-friendly theme parties to your Hostesses! 

One of the great things about the direct sales industry is that often times we can work with our kiddos right along with us, so why not bring everyone together and showcase your products at the same time with these summer home party ideas?

Pool Party

Summertime is made for swimming! Take to the water and host a pool party with everyone and find ways to incorporate your products into the summer fun activities.

You can feature your Summer Product Line all while enjoying some summer sun!

You may want to consider having pool games where the winning team gets free samples of your products right then!

Carnival Theme

Gather your fellow friends who are also direct sales representatives for different companies, and come up with a mini carnival theme.

Each “sponsor” would have their own table to showcase their products.

You’ll need to create activities for the kids to enjoy and have fun doing.

Some suggestions would include pin the tail on the donkey, three-legged races, and face painting.

Granted the primary focus will be on ensuring the kids and families have a good time, but I assure you that the moms won’t miss the chance to be scoping out your products.

You could even host a Mystery Hostess Party during this event.

Photo Shoot Party

Consider hosting a photo shoot with your products and your guests. The idea behind this concept is to make it a fun event for families to get together and capture photos they can take with them.

This also allows your potential customers to get a sense of how they would use your products with their families.

Be 100% honest with your friends and tell them you’d like to get photos of them using the products you sell and that they can get to keep pictures.

Many people also love the chance to be “famous” too.

Old Fashioned Tea Party

Big kids and little kids love the chance to dress up for an Old Fashioned Tea Party!

Host an afternoon tea party (after nap time, of course) to show off your products in the cool comfort of your living room.

Have age appropriate games, flavored teas, and finger foods.

Give prizes for who wears the funniest or biggest hat to the party.

Nap Time Online Party

If you can not get everyone together in person, schedule a “Nap Time Online Party” for Moms!

You can easily host an online party via your favorite social media channels while all of the littles are sleeping soundly. You can choose to have you party on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or even Periscope.

You can handle this in a few different ways. You can get a hostess to be in charge of rounding up all the attendees and get the hostess benefits.

You can offer up some prizes and promote the event yourself and offer up some extra incentives for anyone who decides to schedule a party for themselves during the event.

These are some ideas that may create lasting memories with potential bookings throughout the summer months and beyond.

Show your Hostesses and Guests how awesome it is to truly have a “family business” and invite them to join your team as well!

What are some out of the box summer home party ideas that you can come up with?

    In the summer you can never go wrong with a pool party! Everyone loves the pool! Great ideas.

  2. I love the ideas that include kiddos in the mix! That’s always been my issue when I’ve been invited to home parties – I always have to make sure I have a sitter. I hope these ideas start to change that!

  3. I love the photo shoot calendar idea – that is just too much fun! All of these ideas are fabulous for summer though and I can’t wait to plan a party!

  4. These ideas are adorable! My kids are older now so they do their own planning! In fact, my son and his friends just took a mini road trip much to my chagrin….they better be home soon lol or else! The nap time online party sounds good to me…now if only they’ll nap!

  5. How fun!! I miss the days when my son was younger and really loved the theme parties. Now I need to start planning those for the adults!! 🙂

  6. I love the photo shoot idea! It’s really out of the box and such a cool idea. And, of course, you can never have too many pool parties.

  7. I believe my daughter is at that age that she’d love an Old Fashioned Tea Party, as she is always talking about tea parties. She’d probably love a carnival-inspired party, too.

  8. TEA PARTIES! I totally remember building a little fort either outside, or in the living room with my friends (and even my parents) and having little tea parties, so many awesome memories.

  9. You can’t go wrong with an old school pool party. A friend of mine has one at her house every year after school lets out.

  10. Those are all fun ideas! I wish I got to see my friends in person more often, but I’ll settle for online for now.

  11. Love these themes! I saw one the other day that was cute. It was a movie theatre theme!

  12. These all sound like fun parties. I used to have a slumber party and we would camp out back. It was always so much fun.

    The photo party would be fun with a selfie stick.

  13. I LOVE all of these ideas but especially the overall theme that a family business can truly be a family business! My daughters have been very enthusiastic about sharing our products and I can only imagine how much fun they would have with a themed party to share with all THEIR friends 🙂

  14. I love the photo shoot party theme. I had planned to do something similar for my daughter’s high school graduation but we ran out of time preparing. I still have all the props. I’m sure her friends would love it.

  15. Rebecca Swenor

    I love a tea party! If there’s cake, I’m there. 😛 My daughter is just like me, she loves tea and cake. Awesome party ideas.

  18. Never heard of nap time online party. That’s interesting. My son is already a tween so no more big parties for him. But those are really great ideas.

  19. I love all these ideas! If you don’t have a pool, you could set up water stations with different sprinklers and water activities!

  22. These are some great party themes! We are planning a pool theme party for my daughter do sometime this summer! It’s gunna be fun.

  23. Thanks for these awesome ideas, I have two kids with summer b-days and our biggest downfall is everyone is so busy in the summer to make it to a party, so we do huge family parties! I can’t wait to use some of these ideas!

  24. These are all such great ideas. We have had pool parties at our house before and they were a hit. Planning on doing a breakfast themed party for my little guy this winter.

  25. This is a great list of ideas. I could used some of these while my daughters were young. How fun!

  27. A photo shoot party seems like a lot of fun for everyone. Not sure what nap time online is about this is interesting thanks for sharing.
