Posted at 16:01h
So you’re starting to get back into your usual routine with school and extracurricular activities taking over most of your schedule but with summer still sizzling in the air, it’s important to make the best of those glorious days by the beautiful pool, here at HighPoint Community Apartments! So with that being said, let’s dive into some exciting games for everyone to enjoy while cooling down in the refreshing pool.
Beach Ball Race
Using large beach balls, see who can push their ball to the other side of the pool first! In case you were wondering, throwing the ball definitely counts as cheating, so it’s up to you to paddle as though you were swimming for gold in the Olympics.
This game is definitely going to make a big splash and it’s as simple as tossing a big bag of ping-pong balls into the pool and seeing who can capture the most.
This classic game has been played by many over the years with great enjoyment and you can even add your own twist! Kids will have a great laugh after one kid yells ‘dolphin’ and the rest of the kids try their best porpoise impression.
Shark and Minnows
This exciting game involves one child being the shark and they stand in middle of pool, while the rest of the kids are minnows, standing at the edge of the pool. When the shark yells ‘Go’, the minnows jump into the pool and try to swim past the shark without getting tagged. The kids who are tagged are out until you’re left with one minnow trying to out-swim the shark!
Another favorite pool game enjoyed by many is Air ball and the goal is to keep the beach ball from touching the water while throwing it from one person to the other.
