Swimming pool games
Swimming pool season is one of the greatest times of the year for my family. Everyone is happy to be there and most members of the family will be ready and willing to enjoy some water fun as a family.
Swimming pool games are a great way to spend time together and there are tons of different ones to choose from. If you are going to spend some time in the pool with your family, here are seven awesome swimming pool games to enjoy with them this summer.
We always have a blast and look forward to summer. The kids love these fun water games.
Let’s get started with these swimming pool games for family!
Here are some swimming pool games for kids you can play for FREE:
1. Noodle Jousting
This is a great game that requires some swimming noodles (find them at any Dollar Store) and a couple of floats. Simply have everyone get on their float in a designated area of the pool and then joust each other with the harmless noodles to see who gets knocked off.
The last one still to stay on board wins.
Everyone get in a giant circle holding hands and put one person in the middle. Everyone then starts moving in a circle around and around the person in the middle.
The closer you can be to the outer edges of the pool, the better the effect. As you spin faster and faster, a whirlpool will form and spin the person in the middle if the pool area is small enough.
3. Marco Polo
This classic game is super easy and it is basically tag in the pool. The difference is, the person that is “It” will be blindfolded or have their eyes closed.
They call out “Marco” to the other players and they must respond with “Polo” right away. This can lead to some fun chases in the water and is a great game for the younger set to join in.
4. Chicken Fight
This is a family favorite of ours. As you can see above. 😉 Our boys just love this game and to be honest, the girls love it to.
Now the kids just get on Daddy’s shoulders and then they fight to see who falls off too. Now I don’t recommend this game with the kids by themselves.
You definitely need an adult to keep the kids from getting hurt, but the kids really enjoy this one.
This is a fun game for the older kids that are good swimmers. The object of the game is to line up on one side of the pool against the wall.
All racers will then push off the wall. You are then supposed to go as far underwater as that thrust will take you. When you stop moving, the next person goes and tries to best that distance.
Keep going until a champion is crowned.
6. Shark Tag
Okay. Who has not played good old fashioned shark tag in the pool? Simply put up the fin and play tag.
It is super simple but it will always produce laughter and fun.
7. Treasure Diving
This one is a favorite for the kids and only requires a handful of coins. Toss a few into the water and have the kids go searching for them.
If you want an adult version, you can spread them out far and wide and have a big search. Treasure diving is particularly fun if you get to keep your bounty.
These are fun family swimming pool games!
