End Of School Water Party Celebration

Friends, can you believe that summer is upon us at last? If your kids haven’t finished school already, I imagine the last day is in sight. I can’t think of a better way to welcome those months of freedom by hosting an end of school/ warm weather water party! What could be more fun than water balloons as far as the eye can see, not to mention squirt guns, soaked sponges, and even a water balloon piñata? Click through the gallery below for these and a few more super fun ideas!

Welcome summer, we’re so happy you’re here!
