POOL GAMES

From Swimmingpool.com

Let’s face it:  Everyone loves to play games while in the swimming pool.  Why do you think kids invented the game called Marco Polo?  Utilizing zero props, requiring only a swimming pool and unbridled enthusiasm, Marco Polo illustrates perfectly the human desire to play games while swimming.  This post from Swimming Pool.com provides an exhaustive compendium of swimming pool games, along with a link to get an explanation of how to play.  Use the guide for some great ideas around the swimming pool this summer!

Here is an excerpt from the post:

ATOMIC WHIRLPOOL

Have everyone get in the pool and line up single file along the edge with very little space between them. Have everyone walk for a couple of minutes, then jog another couple of minutes, then “run” around the edge another couple of minutes. If done right the water will “carry” them around the pool. Finally, tell them to turn around and go the other way. It is almost impossible to go against the current

INVISI-BOTTLE

Take a clear, 2-liter bottle, remove the wrapper and fill it with pool water. Try to use a bottle with a white cap, or a cap of the same color as the floor tiles of the pool. Divide everyone into two teams and line them up, in the water, on opposite ends of the pool — facing away from the water. An adult, or one of the players, stands outside the pool and tosses the bottle in the water. When they hear the splash, the players turn around and try to find the bottle. Sounds easy, right? Think again! The clear bottle blends in and becomes almost invisible on the bottom of the pool. It’s a fun, challenging game for everyone!
