Backyard Water Games
July 12, 2016 Amber Rohal

Keeping cool is your mission this week, and we’ve got you ready to attack! 

We’ve kept in mind that Burlington has suggested a voluntary water restriction, so while these are wet and wild ways to have fun, they’re not excessive uses of water.


Frozen Block Dino Dig from Happy Hooligans: My 6 year old LOVED this one. Now I’m making them with insects, cars, and any other toy she wants to excavate!
1. dino-dig-happy-hooligans


Swimming Pool Scrabble Tiles from Toddler Approved: I can see us turning this into a speed-spelling game in no time! And using it in the mini pool, too! 2. Sponge Scrabble


Pool Noodle Light Sabers from Kids Activities Blog will make you the coolest parent ever!

3. Pool-Noodle-Light-Sabers


Water Balloon Towel Toss from Love Play Learn will have the kids working as teams to stay dry. Better yet, the losing team kinda wins, right?

4. Water-Balloon-Towel-Toss-Game


Water Sponges from Inner Child Fun are fun for all ages, and ouch-proof too!

5. Water Sponges


Adding this to your backyard will get the creative juices flowing, and have you saying “Why didn’t I think of that?” Another gem from Happy Hooligans.

Looking for an alternative to water-guns? The folks at HowDoesShe made a water squirter fight adorable.

7. Water Gun Fight


Set up a water toy refill station like Christine at First Home Love Life did, and you can limit the amount of water the kids have access to.
