Get wet! If you must have the party outside, find a shady park, and then bring out the water. For a fun game, instead of hot potato, you can pass the ice cube and see how far it will go before it melts! Stock pile your party with supplies for fun activities like, water balloon toss, slip and slide and even water guns if your kids are old enough to enjoy them respectfully.
