5 Fun water games for every age

Written by Eleanor Weeks

Need a fun way to cool off in the sun,
Grab your family and a water gun,
From water balloon fights to sprinkler fun, prepare to get wet!
It’s sure to be the coolest summer yet! 

With the weather warming up again, we’ve made a list of the best water games to keep you and your family cool whilst you’re at home!

1. Water Balloon Fight

Is there anything more fun than a water balloon fight? Simply fill up as many water balloons as you can and let the children throw them at each other!

 2. Duck, Duck Splash

Similar to Duck Duck Goose, sit the kids in a circle and nominate a child to be ‘it’!  The child who is “it” has a cup of water. They will walk around the circle saying “duck, duck, duck” whilst splashing a little bit of water on each head. When they get to the person they want to tag, they yell “splash” and throw the rest of the water in the cup onto that child’s head. That child then has to chase them around the circle to try and beat them back to their spot or else they are the new ‘it’.

3. Sprinkler Dance Party

Sprinkler time is the very best time for your children to bust some dance moves. Think of it as ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, sprinkler version?! Let the kids can make up their own dances or dance along to the famous Macarena, The Conga or maybe even the running man! The best part is, sprinklers are not very expensive and all you have to do is screw it on to your garden hose for endless hours of kids entertainment!

4. Sponge Relay

All you need for this game is 4 buckets, 2 extra-large sponges and some crazy, water-loving kids! Start by splitting the kids into two teams. Each team has two buckets and a sponge. Fill one of the buckets with water and put it a few yards in front of the empty bucket. The aim of the game is that one player from each team takes their sponge, runs down to the full bucket, fills the sponge with water and runs back to squeeze as much water as possible into the empty bucket. Then, the next player goes and so forth, like a relay! The team with the most water in their bucket (the one that started out empty) wins!

5. No Rules

For the ultimate water fight, we have the perfect idea for you! Let’s face it, a water fight doesn’t need lots of rules to be fun. So, your one rule? Get the opponents as wet as possible!
