Summer is so much more fun when you have can see kids having fun! The heat seems to melt away when you put together a combination of great snacks, cool parents, awesome activities and some much-needed shade.

I started planning the party using The CLIF Kid Play Hub. CLIF Kid is committed to encourage families to feed their adventure and discover new frontiers in the great outdoors. Outdoors can be anything from your local parks, your backyards, and even city sidewalks. The CLIF Kid Play Hub provides ideas and tools for parents and communities to support outdoor play! I’m all for outdoor play even during the hottest days of summer. I put together ideas for play with the help of the Hub that kept the kids engaged and cool in the summer.

It was great being about to co-host a Come Out to Play – Date with my friend, Jen of The Rebel Chick. The goal of the event was to get local kids outdoors!


I started the planning with a large shelter/pavillion at a local park called Sugar Sand Park. This gave a shaded were with picnic tables and a wide open play area that is not covered. There is also an awesome carousel that my daughter cannot get enough of.


I used the pavillion shade to host both a chalk drawing area, the food drinks, and a painting station.

In the wide open are of the park attached to the pavillion, I made a splash area with plastic containers and homemade sponge bombs. I got this idea from the Clif Hub. All you need for this splash area are Sponges, rubber bands, several buckets, and small water guns that I purchased all at the dollar store the night before the party.


For the food & beverages, I served the new CLIF Kid products, fruits, water, sparkling water, and juice pouches. The food was a big hit. The only fruit that I would skin next times is apples or I would just provide them whole instead of cut up.
