Kick those summertime blues out the window with these summer fun playdate ideas. Food and games that the kids are going to love!
We are in full summer mode over here. We are staying up late and sleeping in and enjoying our lazy days. Sometimes however, our lazy days can be just a little too lazy and we have too much screen time, huge messes and a lot of tattle telling. This has become a huge problem for my youngest. It is so hot here in Phoenix that playing outside is not even a thought. And we don’t have a pool, so that makes outside play even less of an option. I know my kids enjoy inviting friends over and when they are entertained by their friends, I can actually get things done around the house. So why not take a #summercakebreak and celebrate summer and national ice cream month with a playdate.
Hosting a summer fun playdate doesn’t have to be hard, and you don’t even need a pool to keep cool! If you know me, I like to keep most things as simple as possible. So why wouldn’t I make hosting a playdate just as easy as everything else. The best part about a playdate is a yummy treat. And what better way to cool off than with an ice cream cake. I love that I Love Ice Cream Cakes are readily available at my local Fry’s grocery store in the freezer or bakery section. There are different options (original Carvel®, Jon Donaire® and OREO®), different sizes and you can decorate the tops if needed for a special occasion.
Plus they are ice cream! Who doesn’t love ice cream on a warm summer day. I know these kids will!
I added a summer fun printable banner to the top of the ice cream cake to go along with our summer fun playdate theme. I thought I’d share the link to download our summer fun banner if you wanted to add it to your I Love Ice Cream Cakes cake.
I also included a lot of things on the table to keep the kids entertained at our playdate.
Summer Fun Playdate Ideas
Here are some of our summer fun playdate ideas:
Water Gun Target Practice – set up some paper cups and see who can shoot them down
Sprinkler Beach Ball Toss – Keep the Beach ball in the air while playing in the sprinklers
Bubble Blowing Contest
Water Bombs – make water bombs using sponges
Water Squirter Distance Shoot – who can shoot the farthest
Yummy Treat – I Love Ice Cream Cakes
Full of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, those delicious chocolate crunchies and whipped frosting, I Love Ice Cream Cakes are such a fun addition to any summer celebration. They’d also be fun to gift to neighbors or friends who are feeling the summer blues. There is always a reason to make someone smile with an ice cream cake.
This summer fun playdate would make a fun family activity too. It doesn’t have to be with friends. I know my kids would love it if mom and dad participated in a little summer fun!
