With summer quickly approaching us, we got inspired by the recent heat to find some fun games to play while staying cool with water!


🚰 Water Tag

A summer classic - tag but instead of tagging, use water balloons, spray bottles, or a bottle of water to "tag" players with water to become "it"!


🌊 Marco Polo

Another classic! If you don't have a pool open near you, modify it to play on land where instead of finding players in the pool, you have to find them in your play space and when the person who is "it" thinks they've found someone, they have a water bottle ready to spray at them!


🧽 Dodge Sponge 

The same rules as dodgeball, but using sponges that are full of water! If it's hot outside, it should make for a great incentive to try the risky move of catching a sponge to bring back a teammate. 


🎈Water Balloon Volleyball

Try to play volleyball using water balloons - if a balloon pops when you try to hit it, the point goes to the other team!


🏃‍♀️ Bucket Race

Place two buckets on opposite ends of your play space, filling one with water and leaving the other empty and putting a line of tape on the inside. The player is then given a cup with the goal of filling up the other bowl up to the line in the fastest time using the cup and running back and forth. For multiple players, either take turns or set up multiple buckets!


We hope you have fun playing (and maybe watching our inspiration movies)!
