School’s out & summer’s in! It’s time to enjoy the weather and play outside in the sunshine. When the sun is unbearable and you’re trying to beat the heat, keep cool with these four fun games!
1. Drip, Drip, Drop
This game is very similar to duck, duck, goose, but with water! Everyone sits in a circle and one person, who is “it,” walks around the circle dripping water onto everyone’s head from a bucket while saying, “drip, drip, drip.” When the person who is “it” says “drop,” they pour the rest of the water onto the chosen person’s head! That person then gets up and chases the other person around the circle back to their original spot. If the person who got the water dropped on them doesn't beat the dripper back to their spot, they become “it.”
2. Kiddie Pool Kickball
This game follows the same rules as regular kickball, but adds water and slip ‘n slides to the mix! You will need four kiddie pools to use as the bases, one beach ball to use as the ball, and four large tarps with lots of soap to place between each pool. There are three to five innings and there are three outs per inning. Each team will work to make it around the bases to score points.
3. Ice Cream in a Bag
One of summer’s most delicious treats is ice cream! This easy recipe will make ice cream that is ready to eat in five minutes!
Enough ice cubes to fill the gallon-sized bag ½ way
Any of your favorite ice cream mix-ins
4. Bubble Snake
Don’t be afraid! This fun activity will take bubble-blowing to a whole new level.
*Hint: a slower, gentle stream of air will create a longer chain, or snake of bubbles!
