Summer pool parties are just around the corner!
Now is a great time to start planning fun activities to keep the kids active and entertained in the pool, all season long.
Don’t worry—you don’t need to buy a bunch of expensive toys. Some of the most fun pool games are also the simplest, and many involve supplies that you probably already have lying around the house. Other supplies can be bought at your local dollar store or department store for just a few bucks.
Funfilled Pool Activities
Pools are great for swimming and exercise, but they can also be a great source of fun. There are many different games and activities that can be played in the water. Kids, teens and even adults will love playing in your swimming pool when you add fun activities for them to do!
Also, make sure that before you get into these activities you have cleaned your pool using best above ground pool heater.
1 Water Balloon Volleyball
This games takes tradition volleyball and adds even more fun with water balloons. To make it more interesting, grab a few sheets, split into two teams and make the players spread the sheet out. You play by catching the water balloon in the sheet and then tossing the sheet up to send the water balloon back to the other team. If the other team busts a balloon, your team is the automatic winner!
2 Scavenger Hunt
Small items, such as toy cars, Barbie doll shoes etc; are thrown into the pool. The announcer then calls out what item is to be searched for. In the end, the person with the most items wins.
3 Pool Relay
Place two large buckets at one end of the pool. Divide players into two teams. Each team has one boogie board and one plastic cup. The object of the game is for each player to fill the cup with water, use the boogie board to swim across the pool and dump the water into the bucket on the other side of the pool then swim back across to give the next team member the cup. The first team to fill the bucket wins.
4 Coin Dive
This one is just like the Race for the Ping Pongs, but with coins, which will obviously sink to the bottom of the pool instead of floating on the water. Simply toss a bunch of change in the pool and let your kids have at it! The person who collects the most money wins.
