Fun Outdoor Water Activities for Kids
Sponge Toss: This one works best with a lot of kids. Set out bucket of water and a large sponges. Soak the sponges in the bucket and then toss it back and forth. Have the kids stand facing each other about a foot apart and have kids toss the sponge, then have them take a step back. Continue tossing the sponge and taking steps further back until someone drops their sponge. the last set of kids to drop the sponge while tossing it back and forth wins.
Water Balloon Hot Potato: Fill up a few water balloons and get everyone in a circle. Toss the water balloon to each person like a hot potato and the first person to drop it or have it break loses and stays cool. If you want to make your life easier grab the easy to fill water balloons – you can fill 100 water balloons in less then 60 seconds! They are awesome!
