What would a pool party games list be without a few water races!? Even if you don't have a pool, you can still play them. Use your backyard as the course and get your water guns, water balloons and your hose ready!
Water races all function on the same principal. You divide players into teams and then players from each team run, one-by-one, from start to some point where they complete a task and back where they tag the next player. There are a few water race games you can play:
Each team gets an empty bucket. The object is to run to the pool, fill up the bucket and then run(with the full bucket) to a bigger bucket and fill it with water. In case you don't have a pool, use a hose.
Each team gets an empty water gun. The objective is to run to the pool, fill up the water gun and try to shoot as much water into a target(like a bucket or something similar). Like in the simple version, you can use a hose instead of a pool. You should also set a distance from which contestants shoot.
This one is really fun. Each team gets a bunch of Water balloons and each player has to run from the start to a bucket with a water balloon between his knees. You could also make up some other crazy way to transport the water balloons, like holding them in your mouth.
You can determine the winning team in a few ways:
