There are many ways to enhance a pool party for adults and children with low-cost items that will provide hours of fun. Almost everyone has heard of the Marco Polo pool game and there are dozens of others from which to choose. The following are some of the most popular.
Aquatic Bean Bag Toss
The game is available with everything needed to play, including inflatable bean bags and the target.
Beach Ball Toss
Throw a beach ball in the pool and start the music. This variation of hot potato has players tossing the ball from one to the other. When the music stops, the one holding the ball is out.
Inflatable Ring Toss
The game comes complete with inflatable rings and “bases,” each of which is worth a certain number of points. Players toss the rings at the inflatable bases in an effort to accumulate the most points.
Jump or Dive
This variation of Simon Says has participants line up along the side of the pool while one person is in the water to call out jump or dive. Players that perform the incorrect move are out.
All this requires is a couple of pool noodles and two inflatable platforms. Each person sits on an inflatable and “jousts” with their pool noodle. The winner is the one that doesn’t fall off the inflatable.
Ping Pong Scramble
Take one large container of ping pong balls and enough containers for each player to have one. Dump the balls in the pool and watch the fun as everyone scrambles to collect as many ping pong balls as they can. The game can be played individually or in teams. To be played by a point system, write numbers on the balls or award points by the number of colored balls collected.
One person is the shark and other players try to make it from one end of the pool to the other without being tagged. Anyone that’s tagged becomes a shark and helps the original shark tag others. The last one un-tagged is the winner.
