Whether you are headed to the pool or the beach, you will want to give these 5 fun water games for kids a try. Pool and beach time are the perfect time to get silly, and these water games will do just that.
So don’t jump in the water just yet, check these ideas out first!
1. Fill the Bucket.
Give each child a spoon and a bucket. Create a line half way up the bucket with a piece of brightly colored tape. On the count of go, have the children use their spoon to fill up the bucket with water. The first one to make it to the line wins.
2. Pool Noodle Picking.
Take a selection of colorful pool noodles and cut them into chunks. A knife will cut them easily for you.
Have each color be worth a point value. For example, a red piece is worth 5 points, green 10, and so on.
Take the chunks and toss them into the water. On the count of go, have children chase after the chunks to collect them. When time is up, add up the scores and see who won!
3. Spray Bottle Fun.
Fill assorted spray bottles with water and add a few drops of food coloring to each. Have fun spraying sand with the various colors, creating a collage to your liking! If there is no sand to be found, buy some white sheets at your local thrift store to spray.
4. Sponge Wars.
Find sponges of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Allow children to soak the sponges and toss them at each other. The soaked sponges will send water flying all over, and since they are sponges they won’t cause any injuries.
5. Glow in the Dark Fun.
Paint pool toys, diving toys, and pool noodles with glow in the dark paint. This is fun to do when swimming at dusk as they will light up the night. Plus, it helps you keep a better eye on your kiddos since they will be glowing!
Have some fun this summer when you hit the beach or pool. These 5 fun water games are sure to please.
