It’s finally hot in Minnesota where my family lives, and I’m loving the rays. My kids have already been invited to several birthday parties, and there will be many more. While a pool party is the standard go-to for keeping kids cool while they celebrate the birthday kid, there are so many other fun outdoor birthday party ideas. And having a party in your yard solves the problem of not being able to fit 20 kids in your house. Kids can go totally crazy outdoors! It’s also usually much cheaper than having to pay for a venue.
Here, I’ve rounded up 15 awesome outdoor birthday party ideas for the kids that don’t require a pool.
