Children love a hot tub’s warm bubbling water at any time, and especially inviting their friends to join them. These get-togethers, however, are even better for a child’s special celebration.

And as the weather cools in late summer and early fall, and pools are being closed down, the weather is ideal for hot tub children’s parties.


Tips for Hosting Hot Tub Children’s Parties

For a special children’s event, say for a birthday, consider an age-appropriate theme such as:

–“pretty in pink splash party”

–or “beach party.”

And a hot tub cake with dolls adds a nice touch to a preteen young lady’s event.

There are loads of cake ideas like this one on Pinterest.




Since families are becoming more and more health conscious, it’s also a good idea to consider serving fruit or a vegetable tray with perhaps some great dips.

Smoothies can also be fun, especially when the children choose their own fruit for the blender.

Keep lots of water or plain juice around, too, to keep the children hydrated during/after stints in the hot tub.

Like all parties, it’s helpful to have a few trash cans around and a washing station for sticky hands and fingers after they’ve eaten birthday cake etc. For other occasions than a birthday, you may decide on s’mores as “the” treat.

In that case, a fire pit or fire table is great for roasting the marshmallows.



Other tips:


You can plan some age-appropriate games, ranging from hopscotch, to table tennis, a scavenger hunt, or a piñata.

If you think excited kids swinging at a piñata isn’t a great idea, there are also pull-string ones available at party stores.

And, if you would like to make your own piñata, WikiHow has instructions.







Children’s Safety is Key

When children are using the hot tub, supervision is essential. In particular, monitor the time the children spend in the spa. An adult or two may even want to join them, particularly if some of the children are very young.









Also monitor the spa water temperature for children over 5. Children under 5 should not be in a hot tub, unless the water has not been heated. It is always important to check your spa manufacturer’s guidelines as they relate to hot tub/spa use by children to be certain.




One final note:

Even if you don’t own a hot tub, rentals are available for special occasions. Contact our NY showrooms (Windham, Farmingdale, Westbury) for more information.
