• Shallow swimming pool
• Beach ball
This activity is good on a hot day. Have the children stand around the pool with the beach ball. They try to make each other wet by throwing the ball hard at the water. Do not throw the ball at each other, just at the water. If there is just one child, he or she can play the game with an adult.
