Pool party games that look like pool floats

There are five different game ideas:

  • Deep Dive
  • Marco Polo
  • Beach Ball Bounce
  • Floatie Race
  • Bombs Away

Each is very simple, but some require some prep. Gather the following items and you will be ready to go:

  • Diving sticks or rings
  • Beach ball
  • 2 pool floats

The games are suggestions for fun things you can do in the pool. You are probably already familiar with most of them, but feel free to add any other ones you would enjoy. 

Pro Tip: If you want these printables to last a little longer, try laminating the pool games and then punching a hole in the corner for a key ring. Add it to your pool bag and use it year after year!

Poolside Mocktails

Obviously, you can choose any refreshing treats that sound good to you, but we wanted to give you some yummy mocktail options.

  1. What great ideas! Who says this has to be limited to summer? My husband and I have access to an indoor pool year round at our community center. And we can come back and sit in the center lounge and sip our beverages.

  2. oh fun! My husband’s family always played a version of ring diving with coins–everyone has several coins to throw in the water (eyes closed). You try to find as many coins as well as the highest value of coins. We played this on our honeymoon for like 2 hours. So much fun.

    1. Great! We had so much fun being in the pool without our kids, it was such a relief to not be on ‘lifeguard duty’. It was a great way for us to enjoy each others company and just relax:)
