I started a tradition with my kids that we have some sort of ice cream celebration when they finish school. This year I thought it might be fun for the kids to invite some friends over for a very chill ice cream and water balloon party. We had an Ice Cream Sundae Bar with tons of toppings and played a few water balloon games. I decorated these scoops with washi tape for the toppings.
Some tips for future water balloon, ice cream parties: Chocolate melts too fast in the mid afternoon to be outside. Maybe try different fruits as well as all the junk that kids love. Make sure that the water balloons are covered. There was no shade when I started filling up about 500 water balloons and several started to pop in the water filled swimming pools, my problem was with all the blue ones. The few games we played were fun, maybe do one or two more. Also a super big thanks to my sister who stopped by to help me scoop the ice cream for 15 crazy and fun kids. ( I wasn't sure if everyone would come, there were a lot of things going on this weekend, but everyone came and had fun-I hope.)
