There are plenty of back to school party ideas to get kids excited about going back to school. This is a good idea, especially if friends have been absent most of the summer. It breaks the ice brought about by the changes that a few months of summer can do.
Pool parties, beach parties, school supply parties, pizza parties and bike parties are just some of the ideas that can be used as themes. If you have new kids in the neighborhood, invite them along so they have a chance to make new friends as well.
Horseback riding is another fun outing to get a party started. It takes up time and brings on an appetite. It is also a way to enjoy the outdoors before winter arrives. Picnics in the park with a chance to play baseball or throw the Frisbee around are other fun activities.
If you are having a party for girls that are old enough to shop on their own, a shopping party can be the perfect way for them to pick up supplies and buy a few back to school cloths. Finish the party at a pizza place where they have a chance to sit around and enjoy some fun conversation.
