It's the pool party games make a pool party fun and memorable. We like action at our pool and it's often the games that kids, especially, fondly remember. There are games for all ages and for all swimming abilities.
Many of our swimming pool games are geared toward the theme of the pool party. Dive for sunken treasure at a pirate pool party or Feed the Lion at a Lion King party. Toss frog splash balls at a frog themed party.
Perform a mermaid rescue or swim through Nemo hoops at an Under the Sea Pool Party. However we have lots of pool games ready to play for a casual afternoon of pool fun.
Which swimming pool games to play depends on the age of the players and their ability to swim. However there are games that don't require the guests to get completely submerged in the water - like Jarts or Skip'n Sink Disk Toss game.

Pool games for kids need to accommodate the age and skill level of the child. The games can be geared toward the theme of the party - like a pirate ship game for a Pirate Pool Party or finding Nemo games for an Under the Sea celebration.
Simple props like swim rings, foam noodles, splash balls or pool floats add creativity and energy to swim races and activities.

The fun of water balloon games is getting wet, right? Well, what could be better than having a few of these games for your pool party.
They can be played by guests of all ages (yes, even adults) and it doesn't matter how well someone swims.
This game is played by passing the plastic ball before the time runs out or you get splashed.
Just fill 1 water balloon with water and place it inside the chamber.

The balloons are replaceable with regular balloons.Splash Out at Amazon
