We are now in the heart of the summertime and that means it’s peak time for taking a dip in the pool! Pools are great for taking a swim, exercising, or just floating on the water and relaxing. However, after a couple of hours in the pool, you may get bored with doing the same things over and over. Here are six fun pool games for the entire family to enjoy!
The Lost Bottle
All you need for this game is a clear water bottle that is filled completely with water. When submerged in the pool water, the bottle will become really hard to see. Race to see who can find the invisible bottle first!
Some good old pool noodles along with waterproof rings are all you need to play ring toss in the pool. Compete to see who can get the most rings around the noodle. It’s harder in the water since the target is constantly moving.
Ping Pong Balls
These are some of the cheapest items you can buy and can be used for a variety of different games. You can draw numbers on each of the balls, split up into teams, and race to see who can collect the most balls. You can also use the rings from ring toss and see how many balls you can get inside of the ring.
Pool Noodle Races
Racing is one of many classic pool games, but have you ever tried racing on a pool noodle? Kids and adults alike will love the challenge of sitting on a pool noodle as if it were a horse and trying to make it to the other end of the pool.
Glow sticks are another inexpensive item that can really make for some fun pool games. Glow sticks and rings can easily be thrown into the pool to help illuminate it at night time. Have some fun and let the kids compete to see who can collect the most glow sticks in a given amount of time.
If you happen to have an extra watermelon lying around the house, a watermelon relay race is a fun idea. You can also use any large round object for this game. Put oil onto the watermelon to make it slippery and split into teams. Each person on the team will take turns pushing the watermelon from one side of the pool to the other and back, competing to see which team will finish first!
