Let us start with have a ball as one of the fun water games. Being that there are many cheap balls, you will be able to create a game that will keep children amused for hours. You should start by using a rope to mark off a circle or square on your lawn followed by placing balls of various weights and sizes within the rope boundary. After which, you should hand them a garden hose and task them to push each of the balls outside the rope in less than 60 seconds using water stream from the hose. With more than one kid, you can turn this into the competition which will see all the kids soaked and laughing.
The next game is water jump. One good thing with this game is that it helps kids to improve their coordination and it is good for all ages. Where you will have to choose one individual to operate a garden hose. Here you will use a strong stream of water and have the kids snake the hose back and forth under the players’ feet as each participant try to jump over it. Besides, you can increase frequency depending on the age of the kids. , In the end, the contestant with the driest feet wins.
Besides, there is also backyard Bathtime. You find that this game is good for all ages including infants. Start by grabbing your kiddie pool and fill it with bath toys and bubbles. Then let the baby enjoy an outdoor bath experience. It is true that older kids might not enjoy this at first but if you give them the time they will come to like it.
Tag with a Twist is another fun game. Instead of chaotic water gun fights, you should tell your kids to play tag with those squirters. Apart from that, this will also work when you don’t have enough guns for all the kids. What happens is that only one person gets the gun and tag other players with squirt gun instead of using their hands.
The next fun game is sponge splash. You should know that this game requires a little more setup than the previous ones. In this case, you will need at least two buckets per team and one sponge each. It is essential to note that this is an essential team building activity which can be used to teach valuable lessons during a series of VBS water games. Make sure that you fill one bucket with water and the other one to remain dry for each team. After which you should give them a sponge and ask them to transfer all the water from the full bucket to an empty one using just a sponge. The first team to fill the bucket with water wins.
