Fun Pool Games for Kids


When summer finally begins, each mom should be ready for her kids to have the inevitable desire to go to a swimming pool. Now, if you are lucky enough to have a swimming pool at your house, then you definitely won’t have to worry about traveling too far to get there. But whether you are near a pool or not, being at a pool in the summertime is definitely a good place to be. Kids not only get outdoors but they also work their muscles and smile a million times when they can swim in the cool water of the swimming pool. Are you tired of the same old thing and looking for some new games? We suggest a few ideas that you should definitely look into.

Hold Your Breath

Even though this seems like a no-brainer, no kid can turn down a classic game to see who can swim the longest while holding his or her breath. It is a very simple game for even the youngest of swimmers but it also holds appeal to the older kids who are always up for a challenge. Your kids can get out some of their competitive juices as well as work on their lung capacity and swimming skills.

Find the Bottle

This game is also very simple and enjoyable to kids of any age. Take a clear plastic water bottle, fill it with water, and allow it to sink to the bottom without any of the children seeing it. Once it has settled on the bottom, you can have the kids open their eyes and see who can find and grab the bottle first. Getting your kids to play games that also teach them better swimming skills is definitely a plus for everyone.
