PAPER PLATE/LEAF RELAY
2 teams have to take turns running from and back to teammates with paper plate and leaf on head keeping leaf from falling off plate...


FUN WATER BALLOON GAME
You'll need:
 Balloons,
 a safety pin
 and a faucet

Poke a hole in a balloon using a safety pin.
Then fill it with water and tie the end to create a  slow leak.
Players stand in a circle and toss the balloon around. The idea is
not to be the one holding the balloon when it runs out of water

Water limbo (Age: 4-5)
Hold a hose with the water on full force into a straight line.

Each child takes a turn walking under the water. Keep lowering the height of the water limbo line. The winner is the one who makes it under the water at the lowest level without touching it.
The losers will be all wet, of course!

Water basketball (Age: 8-12)
Throw an inner tube or  any round thing into the pool
 
Try to sink a plastic ball or beach ball in the hoop.
The "basket" keeps moving around making this game lots of fun.
