These free games will cool you off and put a smile on your face
Just add water to turn fun outdoor games like tug of war and limbo into splashy adventures.
Attach your hose to the Aqua Blast Volleyball set ($20; hearthsong.com)―it sprays streams of water straight up, creating a “net” for a wet volleyball game. Kids as young as 3 years old can play.
Divide kids into two teams, and have them form two lines. The first person in each line passes a full bucket of water to the person behind her, then runs to the back of the line. This continues until the teams reach an end zone, say, the edge of the lawn. The team with the most water left in their bucket wins!
