I’ve got two summer birthdays right in a row with Raleigh’s in June and Cal in July! We tend to have at least one of their parties at the pool and this year is no different. SWEDISH FISH and SOUR PATCH KIDS candies created the perfect pool-themed treats just in time!
Heads or Tails, you get a new flavor! SOUR PATCH KIDS HEADS and SWEDISH FISH TAILS combine two flavors into one candy, and they were the perfect addition to our Swim Party-themed favors. I grabbed mine at Dollar General and right now, they’re buy 1 SOUR PATCH KIDS Heads, get 1 SWEDISH FISH Tails FREE (8 oz.; max. value $2.00) – Click here for the deal! All these other favor ideas are easily sourced online with 2-day shipping, too! Of course, Dollar General has so many fun options for summer treats and party ideas, too!
Sunglasses…cute photo-op alert! // A floatie is a pool must-have, and these small soda can holder ones are inexpensive to buy for a crowd and not too bulky to bring home! // A limited-edition candy that they’ve never tried is sure to get kids excited. SWEDISH FISH candies are Cal’s favorite (the raspberry mango flavor is bomb!) and SOUR PATCH KIDS are Hayes’ (he loves anything sour!), so we’ve got our bases covered! // Stick these sea creatures in water and kids can watch them grow when they get home. // Goggles are a must (buy them in bulk online!) because someone always forgets theirs and it seems to cause contention. Goggles for all! // No matter what the age, bubbles are a hit. These smaller tubes come in bulk as well and are just enough fun for the afternoon. // Packing a few other snack options for them to eat is sure to keep everyone happy and away from the concession stand.
Cal is getting so big, and this year is a big birthday for him and our family! He has done so amazing this past year, making new friends and being brave, and it will be fun to have them all to the pool to celebrate!
