For these fun water gun games, you may want to provide the guns for your party so everyone has an equal amount of “fire power”. Look for high capacity super-soaker type guns. The smaller guns need refilling too often!
Can’t locate the water guns you are looking for? Try filling new, clean spray bottles with water.
Use these water games at a pool party or beach party for some variety and something your guests will remember!
Beach Ball Race – You’ll need an inflatable beach ball and water gun for each player. Line up the balls on a starting line. On “Go”, everyone shoots their balls with their water guns. The first ball over the finish line wins.
Fizzy Necklace Targets – You’ll need a water gun and Alka-Seltzer necklace for each player. Make necklaces by making a small hole through an Alka-Seltzer table with a needle and putting it on a string. Have players put on their necklaces and try to dissolve other player’s necklaces by spraying them with water.
Freeze Water Gun Tag – You’ll need one water-gun. Select one player to be “It”. Give “It” the water gun, and on “Go” have him try to tag the other players by squirting them. Whoever gets tagged becomes frozen until another player crawls between their legs.
Old-Fashioned Water Gun Fight – You’ll need a water gun for each player. Hand out the guns, and let them go after each other! Pure and simple!
Water Gun Capture The Flag – You’ll need a water gun for each player and two water balloons. Divide players into two teams. Each team must defend a water balloon (instead of a flag) while trying to capture (and burst) the other team’s water balloon. Tag the other team members by squirting them to “freeze” them. Want to release a frozen teammate? Squirt them and they will “thaw” and be ready to continue playing.
Water Gun Tag – You’ll need one water-gun. Select one player to be “It”. Give “It” the water gun, and on “Go” have him try to tag the other players by squirting them. Whoever gets tagged becomes “It” and is given the gun.
