There are several ways to spend your summer vacation, and when it comes to having some cool fun under the blazing summer sun, there’s nothing better than some backyard water games with the whole family. It’s summer and everyone in the family wants to get outside, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine… and then cool things off with a few wild wet games, let’s list them!
- Sprinkler Limbo
Remember the good old days and how much fun you had playing the limbo game? Here is something even better and pretty simple. First, you need a hose with a nozzle that’ll allow for a steady flow of water, or you could get a meter long PVC pipe, drill holes in it, plug one end and firmly connect the other to your hose. Now, turn on the water and let the games begin! Remember no crawling; kids will try to maneuver their bodies any way they can as they pass under the stream of water without getting wet.
- Sponge Battle
Kids would love to rock this and adults can join too. Everyone would love venturing into an epic clash. There’s no turning back, kings of the seven realms all engaged in one final battle. Winner takes all! And will be the sole ruler of all the seven kingdoms… Yeah I got a bit carried away there, but adding a story to games has a way of spicing things up a bit. Here all you need are some sponges and a few buckets filled with water. May the one with the best aim win!
- Water Spray Wars
Still in the spirit of battle. All you need for this game are spray bottles; alternatively, you can use dish soap bottle filled with water and with their cover on. The player with the spray bottle needs to chase and tag other players by squirting them. When you are tagged, you take over the spray bottle and do the squirting. You can add rules and different variations to it to make it even more interesting.
- Slip and slides
A really fun backyard game everyone can join. For those with small yard spaces, this does not require a lot of space in the backyard, and all you need is a simple garden hose attached to it, and that will provide all the water needed. With a strong running start, flop down on your stomach and see who can get down the path the furthest. Everyone will have a blast seeing who can make it the farthest.
- Water Balloons
Did somebody backyard water games for all ages? Now, this is it! For some really fun time outside, add this to your list. Whether it’s a friendly balloon toss or an out and out battle of tag, there are lots of fun to catch up on with these water balloons. Fill up dozens of them, share it equally amongst you. Everyone run around and try to stay dry!
According to research, kids are more likely to be active when their parents are active. So now you know having fun with the kids is up to you, get out there with your kids and show them how to have an incredibly good time.
