Pool party games add thrilling entertainment and enjoyment into any child's party by the pool. You do not need a large swimming pool because a small one will do for the purpose as long as you can put your imagination to work. In addition, you can always alter the staple land-based games for playing the water.
Pinata by the Pool
The pinata with its sack full of goodies that range from little toys to large candies and are common in a kid's celebration. Children enjoy attempting to break open the paper mache, which is formed into different shapes containing the surprises inside. Now, why not add a pinata to your swimming pool party? You can have the children hit the pinata while they are in the pool by using the classical method ( putting a blindfold over the eyes) or allowing each child to hit the pinata while he/she jumps into the water ( without a blindfold on). Imagine cannonball with a twist.
Definitely, you should make certain that every kid is safe from harm. Ensure that the children are stationed a good distance away from the pinata. As well, as an alternative, you can replace candies with other treats protected in waterproof containers and the toys may include things like squirt guns, swimming goggles and sunglasses. You will see that this is one of the most desired pool party games.
This game with a twist would be throwing many prizes in the center of the swimming pool, as if in a treasure hunt. The children can stand on either side of the swimming poll and then swim to the center when you have thrown the prizes. Certainly, you must make sure that only older children are included in the game.
Crossing the River
This game needs mental planning, physical balance and social cooperation, all of which are the major aspects of a wonderful game enjoyed by parents and kids as well. You should set up two ropes across the length of the pool, one for every group of children. You can then give every team rafts such as an inflatable pool bed, one that both adults and kids can use. The aim of the rafts is that it can be something that the children can float on however it is not stable if a person stands or sits on it.
To begin, all the party members will stay on one side of the pool. The first person in line will pull himself towards the other side of the pool and then back again. The second person does this too and so on until everybody has completed crossing the river, or pool. You can select the winner either by who finished first or by what group was not as wet. Like the pinata game, this is one of the more liked of all pool party games.
Regardless which of the two pool party games you pick, it is vital to make sure that the children are safe. Therefore, you must give life vests as well as adult supervision at all times. You want your children and their friends to have a good time in the pool, and not be exposed to hazards.
