Party Food: Sliders
Need to feed a crowd that has worked up an appetite swimming laps in the pool? This press-in-a-pan slider recipe will help you feed the masses without standing in front of a grill for hours. Prepare the meat mixture and press it onto a cookie sheet a few hours before your party, refrigerate and cook just before the crowds show up! To serve, wrap one end of the burger in a piece of wax paper to keep your burger buns from getting soggy from pool hands!
Pool party safety tips for hosting a kid pool party
- Never leave a child alone in or around open water. Providing active supervision is the most effective way parents and caregivers can prevent drowning.
- Designate a Water Watcher. This is someone who is solely focused on actively supervising everyone in the water for 15-20 minutes at a time and does not engage in distractions during their designated time. To request a free Water Watcher tag, email KBYG@childrens.com.
- Know the swimming ability of each child present. Speak with each parent or guardian ahead of time to understand if the kids coming to your party can swim.
- Establish pool party rules and regulations for young children and non-swimmers. For instance, partygoers must wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket If children remove their life jackets for any reason, make sure they put them back on before getting in the water.
- Have the right safety equipment, such as a ring buoy and a cell phone nearby.
- Learn CPR. The American Red Cross provides information on signing up for a local CPR class
