Fun in the Pool

While I nanny in the summer, the kids love to go to their neighborhood pool.  They love to play all different kinds of pool games. During adult swim they usually enjoy playing cards or spending some of their money they earned with lemonade stands at the snack shack.

With the younger kids, we usually play games in the shallow end.  They love making trains by grabbing onto the feet of the person in front of them and having me pull them around.

The older kids love playing games that involve a little more swimming. The like to play sharks and minnows, where one person is it and everyone else tries to get across the pool without getting tagged.  One of the kids I watch has so much fun finding the toys that I toss in the pool and seeing how fast she can grab all of them.

I’d love to hear other games ideas for nice afternoons at the swimming pool!
