Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples! If you’re a busy, on-the-go family searching for entertaining and refreshing ideas for poolside fun, then look no further. Here are three family-friendly Valentine’s Day pool party ideas:

1. Tropical Day Party

Why travel a thousand miles away when you can create a tropical experience in your own backyard? Grab a speaker and throw on your favorite beachy island melodies. Soak up the sun and have a fun time with a lei-making party – all you need is a little string and some artificial flowers. Fire up the grill and mix up some fruity drinks. Get the whole family involved in building delightful tropical chicken skewers and mixing up these kid-friendly cocktails.

Whether you’re able to swim or just party in the yard (or on the patio), you’re sure to have an unforgettable island experience this Valentine’s Day.

2. Movie Night

Isn’t it about time you and your family enjoyed a fun night out at the movies? Forget crowded theaters and overpriced snacks – bring the movie poolside and let the whole family enjoy a relaxing night in with a favorite flick. Break out the projector and screen or use a TV and get your family together. Create a simple yet fun menu of finger foods, chocolates and kid-friendly drinks for the evening. Chill in the air? No worries – all you need are warm towels, blankets or sleeping bags to stay nice and cozy. You can even light a fire or use an outdoor heater. 

So snuggle up poolside as a family with an outdoor movie under the stars for a warm and fuzzy Valentine’s Day.

3. Glow Dance Party

Sometimes all you really need is a dance party – with glow sticks! Create easy, inexpensive glowing decorations to light up your pool and yard. Put a glow stick in a balloon to float on your pool or to sit around the yard! You can also create super cool galaxy glow jars to help light up the night. All you need are mason jars, glow sticks and glitter. Don’t forget the streamers! Create a simple yet fun menu and kid-friendly drinks for everyone to enjoy. Turn on some tunes, shake off your dancing shoes and bust out your best moves for some Valentine’s Day family fun that will have the entire neighborhood jealous.

Being a pool owner is more than just owning a pool. It’s really about investing in what’s most important to you – your family. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate what really matters in your life – those you love the most. Happy Valentine’s Day!
