Here is a listing of a few more fun water games for you to enjoy at your next beach party, pool party, or anytime you want to cool off...
Dribble, Dribble, Drench – You’ll need a cup of water. This game is played just like Duck, Duck, Goose. Have players sit on the ground in a circle. One player is “It”. "It" goes around the outside of the circle, patting each child on the head and saying “dribble” for each player. “It” will say “dribble” over and over until unexpectantly saying “drench!” and pouring the water over that person’s head. The drenched player must then hop up and run around the circle while playing a game of tag with "It"!
Ice Cube Melting Race - This makes the list for fun ice games. Give each player an ice cube. Who can get it the ice cube to melt the fastest?
Paint with Water - Give the players a paint brush and a bucket of water. Let them “paint” anything and everything! The house, the fence, everything!
Popsicle Toes – you’ll need a timer, child’s pool filled with water, ice cubes and a small bucket for each player. When ready to play, dump the ice cubes into the pool. Players must try to pick up as many ice cubes as possible within three minutes, and place the cubes into their bucket. The catch…you can only pick up the ice cubes with your toes!
Water Limbo – You’ll need a water hose. Turn on the water and place your thumb into the stream so that the water shoots out in a line. Have the players line up and go under the line of water one at a time. After everyone has had a turn, lower it. Keep going lower and lower until the kids are crawling under. At any point, let them “high jump” over it. Don’t worry about anyone being “out” if they hit the water. Let everyone have as many turns as they like for fun!
