JELL-O is great for pool party treats. Put some in a bowl with gummy fish… or in little JELL-O molds and top with whip cream and gummy fish.

POOL PARTY THEMES
Flip Flops are a fun pool party theme. Give each kid one flipflop when they arrive and make them search for the missing half. Brightly colored flip flops are cheap and are a great addition to a gift bag, along with sunglasses, sunscreen and bright beach towel. The Flip Flop theme can even be carried out on the cake:

POOL PARTY OPTIONS: Want to have a pool party but don’t have a pool? Hotels will often allow parties at their pools, especially if you rent a room or two for a night. If it’s for small kids, put together a couple kiddie pools of different sizes to splash around in.
