Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are known to turn every gathering up a notch or two, and that holds true even for kids’ parties. Plan an enjoyable, family-friendly party in your backyard by inviting your kids’ friends (and their parents) over for a good time and some relaxation in the hot tub. Here are a few ideas to help you get to know everyone:

Backyard Scavenger Hunt

Before your guests arrive, hide toys, treats, or household items around your yard, ideally within view of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. When the kids arrive, give them either a written list or a picture list (depending upon their age) of the hidden objects, and send them on a quest to find them all. An added bonus: Parents can keep an eye on their young‘uns from the comfort of your hot tub.

Dunking Duck Hunt

Purchase two dozen small rubber ducks and a few nets the size you’d use in a fish tank. Using a marker, write a number between one and 12 on the bottom of each duck, making sure to use each number twice. Toss the ducks in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and supervise the kids while they take turns using the net to “catch” two ducks. If the ducks they catch both have the same number, the kids gets a point and the ducks stay out of the water. If the numbers are different, no points are awarded and the ducks continue “swimming.” Play continues until all pairs of ducks are “captured” and the winner is whoever has the most ducks at the end.

Football Toss

Using a pair of scissors or shears, cut a variety of different shapes (circles, triangles, stars, etc.) out of a large tarp or old bed sheet. Outline the shapes of the holes using brightly colored duct tape. Then, with a marker, write different point values beneath each hole. (The narrower the hole, the greater the point value.) Hang the tarp between two trees, gazebo posts, or other structures in your backyard, and challenge the kids to toss a football (or other ball) through the holes. Whichever kid racks up the most points in ten throws, wins the game. Bonus: kids can toss the balls from the warmth of your hot tub.

These are just a few simple ideas to get the good times rolling at your next backyard party. And with a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, the parents can enjoy watching all the games from the comfort of the warm water.
