Here’s a fun game idea for your upcoming swimming season!
Required: Beach balls and swimming pool
Players: Small to medium groups
Each player will need one beach ball or you could play this game as teams with each team given a beach ball. All players will be in the water at one end of the pool. They are to balance their bodies on top of the beach ball by hugging the beach ball. On go they are to race to the other side of the pool and then back while in this position. They cannot loose their balance or unlock their arms. The first player back to the starting point is the winner. The game takes great balance and leg strength and is wonderful exercise for a hot summer day. Make sure that all players know how to swim to play this game. To be played as a team relay, the next player in line will be waiting in the water to take the beach ball once it touches the wall. All the other players will be outside of the pool in a line. The first team done is the winner.
