How to entertain the family at your summer barbecue

Summer really is the greatest. It’s the best time to enjoy a fun little get-together with friends and family, so make the most out of long summer days with simple entertainment that everyone will love.

If you have kids joining your festivities, keep them occupied and cool with some water balloon fun! All they need are swimmers, quick legs so they can dodge the water bombs and preferably some grass so they don’t slip. Adults can take a seat and supervise. We recommend keeping a hose within arm’s reach so you can have some fun of your own by spraying the little ones – the kids are sure going to love that.

Keep the summer feels alive with tunes pumping through portable speakers. Find the best playlists on Spotify or Apple Music for good vibes all around.

What’s summer without a barbecue? Nothing too flashy, but sausages and meat skewers are a favourite among many. Try something different by adding seafood and make some delicious veggie skewers filled with sweet potato and zucchini for the vegetarians.

The adults should have their own fun while the kids play, right? Create some easy thirst-quenching drinks to keep the adults entertained. For something quick and easy, fill a jug halfway with ice, mix in Schweppes Agrum and some gin and finish by adding garnish of strawberries, cucumber and lime. Voila!
