Party planning for a Wet-N-Wild Beach Party

Picture this: a wet-n-wild beach party with every imaginable event known to mankind.

REAL European castle photo’s blown up to 8” x 10”, laminated at our local FedEx store, and handed out to teams for the Sand Castle Building Competition. Each team was given a mesh sack full of professional tools purchased at Home Depot -- paint stirs (phenominal for evening out the sides of the castles), plastic plant identifiers (the sharp points are perfect for delicate and detailed designs), a shovel, a bucket, chop sticks, and a plastic tool used for plastering. Whichever team has the most realistic sand replica of their assigned European castle wins a prize!

Next activity … Authentic potato sack races. I found the greatest genuine burlap potato sacks at S&S Sports Supplies. We set up a 10’ by 20’ course on the sand using colored cones to set the mark.

A Wet-N-Wild beach party couldn’t occure without slimy, wet hardboiled eggs having to be carried on a wooden spoon. The object: To run the course without dropping the egg

Frisbee toss through a hula hoop, limbo using my daughters iPod and a great new set of speakers where you can plug the iPod into the speakers and play music for the ENTIRE party to hear, boogie boarding and finally my favorite … water balloon fights.

There is no better joy than planning a daughter’s birthday party. It was a blast. I only wish I were a kid again.  |  digg it!  |  reddit reddit!  |  Google!
