It has become a bit of a tradition for us to host an all neighborhood water balloon fight on the last day of school. It is a great way to kick off the summer, and a means to unleash the pent up frustrations from a long school year in a fury of latex torpedoes.
As you would imagine, the kids have an absolutely amazing time pelting each other. Arguably though, I would say the adults may have an even better time. I would be lying if I didn't admit there is a certain level of satisfaction that comes with landing a direct hit. With all of the frenzied excitement, it is definitely one of our favorite days of the year.
So then I asked myself....why does it have to be just one day? Could we not have a mid-summer, end-of-summer, or even just a random next Wednesday epic water balloon fight? There is never really a bad time to gather your neighbors in friendly warfare.
So get inspired, order those balloons online, and prioritize some fun!
