6 Pool Party Games That Are Perfect for the Kids!

Are you planning your next pool party? Here are six awesome games that will keep the kids splashing and laughing all day long:

Marco Polo

Marco Polo is a classic game for anyone who loves the pool. The player who is “it” will close their eyes and call out “Marco.” The other players must then reply “Polo.” Guided only by their hearing, the “it” player will try to catch the others and tag them so that they are the new “it.”

Underwater Scavenger Hunt

Grab several pairs of identical items: coins, pool rings, dive toys…whatever catches your eye! Toss them in the pool, and tell each team to find one of each item. Whoever gathers everything on their list the quickest will win the scavenger hunt.

Water Balloon Toss

This game is even more exciting in the pool! Players will get into teams and toss water balloons back and forth. With each successful toss, the players must move one step farther away from each other. The team that manages the most tosses without popping their balloon is the winner.

Beach Ball Questions

Blow up a big, colorful beach ball and write questions on it with waterproof ink. Toss the ball from player to player, and the question that faces them when they catch it is the question they must answer. Here are a few fun ideas for your beach ball:

  • If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
  • What is the best book you have ever read?
  • What is the weirdest thing you like to eat?

Pool Jenga

Cut up ten pool noodles into foot-long sections. Then, stack them on top of the water like in a game of Jenga. Whether you build a massive tower or it quickly collapses, this game can be a lot of fun!

Dolphin Races

This pool game is also called a mermaid or submarine race, and it’s perfect for kids who like a little competition. Just hold your breath, put on your game face, and see who can win an underwater race.
