Summer pool parties are so much fun, aren’t they? Woo hooooo! Summer in my family is filled with days at my mom’s pool, watching my nieces and nephew giggle and splash around. I love that they’ve learned to swim so well and enjoy watching them overcome their fear of water over the years.
“Pool-rific” is the Michaels’ June Challenge. Perfect timing!
Kicking off pool party season this past holiday weekend, I gifted each of them with a cute personalized beach bag filled with fun outdoor goodies, swim accessories and beach towels.
Supplies I used are all available at Michaels with the exception of the beach towels.
- beach totes
- Sharpie markers
- letter stencil
- plastic container
- fill ‘er up: sunglasses, bubbles, plastic water bottles with carabiner, assorted dive toys
- beach towel
- optional: toss in some sunblock and flip-flops!
Whether you’re looking for fun décor, activities for your kids or cute party supplies, Michaels has everything you need to MAKE summer fun!
What I did:
Using a pencil and a yardstick, I drew a faint line onto the upper part of the tote bag so that my personalization would be level.
Then I used a pencil to stencil the letters.
I filled in the letters with Sharpie markers. There was a little bleeding (due to the tote bag material) but I actually like that affect, don’t you? It adds to the design!
The plastic bucket/container fits perfectly inside and helps the tote back hold an open shape. Perfect for toting home a wet bathing suit too!
Toss in fun accessories.
So cute for a summer time birthday gift or pool party hostess gift!
