Play Games with Ice Cubes
  • Fill a bucket with some water and lots of ice cubes. Take turns removing cubes from the bucket using only your feet.
  • Have a contest to see who can melt an ice cube between his or her hands first.

Play "Hide-and-Go-Squirt"

Play “Hide-and-Go-Squirt.” The person who is “It” gives the others a count of 30 to hide. Then “It” grabs the spray bottle and starts hunting. Anyone who gets found gets squired!


Play with a Water Balloon

Make a water balloon and then prick it with a pin. Play catch with your balloon, getting soaked as it slowly loses water. (Note: Make sure you pick up the used balloons after playing. They can be dangerous to young children and wildlife.)
