Water Games Invite

Start by simply filling out the invitation and passing it along to all your guests. Once you’ve chosen your guest list, start choosing your games:

Splash Rating Instruction Cards

We’ve got 16 ridiculously fun water games to choose from, and they’ve each got a splash rating to help you pick the ones that will work best for your event. {If you’re feeling ambitious, you can totally do every, single one!} A one splash game might cause you to get a little wet, while a four splash game is likely to get you soaked!!

Water Gun Race

The Cup Races are kind of like those carnival games where you shoot a stream of water at a target to get your character to move towards the finish line. In our races though, you’re shooting a plastic cup and trying to get it to move along a string to the finish line. You probably won’t get too wet with this game – just grab a few water guns like these and you’ll be on your way!

Ping Pong Water Game

Here’s a game that’s more challenging than it seems. It could also be a science lesson for the kiddos on water tension! See how many ping pong balls you can blow off the top of the water – just be careful where you stand or you might get a splashed from the over spray!

Sponge Bucket Water Games

In the Sponge Bucket Fill Up, don’t plan on staying dry! It’s a simple game that only requires buckets and sponges… and tons of water, of course!

Balloon Popping Water Game

In my favorite water game of all-time, you are going to get drenched! Watching everyone try to pop these balloons is absolutely hysterical! To set up, you need a bunch of water balloons, so we suggest using Bunch O Balloons to save you a ton of time.

I find a way to be highly creative and highly organized all at the same time. I love discovering a new favorite book, sitting on my back porch in the mornings, mountain views, and random science facts! I married my high school sweetheart after dating for nearly a decade and I love meeting people who know how to make me laugh, like my husband who can crack me up by just looking at me.
