Come Party With Me: Waterpark Party — Invite
Come Party With Me: Waterpark Party — Invite

When I was little, one of the highlights of Summer was a day at the waterpark. This year I've decided to relive the memories by hosting a party at Waterworld USA in Concord, CA.

I'll invite a group of friends to join me for a day of fun at the aquatic park. Instead of eating at one of the park's overpriced restaurants, I'll pack a picnic of gourmet goodies.

Before I can plan the menu, I have to send the invitation. To see how I made these cool Popsicle-inspired invites,


To make an invite similar to the one seen here you will need the following supplies:

  • colored cardstock
  • colored paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • computer and printer

To assemble the invite:

  1. Create a new document in Microsoft Word. Insert a rectangular text box on the left-hand side of the page. Remove the line and fill from the text box and write out the details of the party. I used the font Bradley Hand ITC TT-Bold in size 12 to write this message:
    To stay nice and cool
    We’ll be in the pool . . .

    Relive your childhood by joining me for a day at the waterpark!
