Summer makes me want to lay around with a cool drink and read. Or, let’s be honest: nap. But it seems to have the opposite effect on my kids. They get get a little wilder. Our schedule, despite my best efforts, goes out the door. I forget to make them shower. Or brush their teeth.

But instead of feeling like everything’s fallen apart … I just don’t care. It’s so fabulous to NOT be on the clock. Which is why I wanted to offer you a summer birthday party plan that just lets the kids go outside, play in the dirt and have fun.

Gardening Party by The Party Teacher-cover 3

Host your Gardening Party in the spring, summer or fall — all great planting seasons. But mainly: just let the kids be outside, giggling with their friends, getting a little dirty, and making a mini garden to take home. Let them paint an apron to match, and eat cookies that look like flowers.

Need to invite boys? Have them plant veggies or cactus or herbs or mini shrubs.

The kids will cool off at the hydration station, and clean up at the handwashing station before you send them home, sunny and tired, and ready for quite movie time.

Your party prep work? You’ll do it almost all in advance, so party day is just about setting out a cute picnic table. And the best part? You get to toss on shorts and put your hair in a pony tail. Easiest party ever. (With, you know, my tips.)
