3. See how long you can float on your back
This one is simple but always enjoyable. All you have to do is get in the pool and float on your back for as long as you can. It’s a great way to relax and just enjoy the sensation of floating weightlessly.
4. Have a pool basketball shootout
This is a great game if you have a pool with a basketball hoop. Take turns shooting at the hoop from different parts of the pool. See who can make the most baskets in a given amount of time. You can also play H-O-R-S-E to make things more interesting.
5. Play keep away with a beach ball
This is another fun game that’s perfect for all ages. To play, one person tries to keep the beach ball away from the other players for as long as possible. The longer they can keep it, the more points they score. This is a great way to get everyone moving and enjoying the water.
6. Have a water balloon toss
This is a classic party game that’s always enjoyable. To play, two people team up and stand across from each other. They then take turns tossing a water balloon back and forth. The goal is to not drop the balloon or let it break on your side. If either of these things happen, you’re out! The last team standing wins the game.
7. Play duck, duck, goose with pool noodles
This is a fun twist on the classic game of duck, duck, goose. Instead of using your hands to tap someone on the head, you use pool noodles. To play, one person walks around the pool tapping everyone on the head with a noodle. When they tap someone and say “duck,” that person has to duck down. But if they say “goose,” the person has to chase them around the pool. The goal is to make it back to your spot without getting caught.
8. Do some wicked cool flips
