Backyard Summer Fun with Red, White and BBQ

No Comments

If you are planning a party or just a fun day in the backyard, Kroger Marketplace is your one stop shop for not only delicious food, but all of the warm weather seasonal kids gear that makes a party fun!

Summer Celebration

We love to have outdoor parties in the summer.   There are a few key elements that are pretty consistent for us when we throw a party.  Water Activities. Good Food.  Festive Decorations.  When I go shopping to get the things I need, I love that Kroger Marketplace has it all.  We are partnering with Kroger today to show you how easy it is to get the fun things you need this summer season.  It wasn’t hard to find what I needed because of the fun signs they have telling me exactly where I needed to be.

Backyard Summer Kids Gear

Some of our favorite things to have for the kids to play with in the backyard:

  • Large bouncy balls
  • Blow-up pool
  • Pool floaties
  • Bubbles
  • Water guns
  • Beach towels (kids get cold when they are wet without these!)
  • Friends and Family!

I couldn’t believe the great prices on all of their fun backyard toys.  It seemed like everything was on sale.

One thing I have learned about a water party is that you need plenty of squirt guns so everyone has one!  Sharing water guns doesn’t work very well because whoever doesn’t have a water gun usually gets blasted.

My girls thought the giant avocado floaty was the best.  I love that fruits and veggies are becoming cool now – not just for eating!

Bubbles are fun, but bubble guns are way more fun.  Luke thought it was so great to run out and pretend to shoot everyone with bubbles.

Party Snacks

We like to keep party snacks simple so that the focus can be on activities when there are lots of kids involved.  Watermelon is a staple at our summer parties and Kroger always has delicious watermelon for a great price.

A refreshing drink is a must for kids when they are running around in the heat.  My kids get SO thirsty!

When you are planning for outdoor parties this summer, or to keep your kids busy, Kroger has it all. I love that they have everything I need in one place, or that I can order online and have all my items waiting for me.  Getting my kids outside has never been easier thanks to the variety of fun summer toys at Kroger.
