Host Your Own Olympic Games for the Kids
Games for the Pool: Beach Ball Race
What you need: Two inflatable balls and two water guns.
How to play: Each player must move his or her beach ball from one side of the pool to the other across the water’s surface, using only the spray from the water gun to propel it. Depending on the size and shape of the pool, you may want to position both shooters on one side of the pool, pushing their balls to the opposite side, or have each racer travel along a different pool edge.
