Five Swimming Pool Toys to Check Out in 2018
Every summer starts off the same way with kids counting downing until the weather is warm enough for them to go swimming. And when swimming weather finally arrives, it is hard to get them out of the water, at least for the first few weeks. By the time mid-July rolls around, the kids are back inside playing video games, and your pool is sitting empty. Make this year different with amazing pool toys which will keep your kids outside and active all summer long.
Who doesn't enjoy chucking a water-soaked foam ball at someone while they try to catch it in a shark-themed net? The Shark Toss and Catch game offers active and competitive fun for all ages. This game can help to develop hand-and-eye coordination along with gross-motor skills. The set comes with two nets, two balls and several game ideas.
Giant Inflatable Animal Floats
Kids have always loved pool floats. Who doesn't remember stretching out and just floating the afternoon away, well, at least until your little brother and his friends tried to flip the float over? Today's pool floats are about a hundred times better than you remember. Now that pool floats come in adult sizes, you can relieve your childhood (without your brother.)
Swim Through Rings
Forget about recruiting your friends to stand in a line with their legs spread so you can swim under them. Now you can create the ultimate underwater course with underwater swim through rings. These rings are the perfect weight to float upright while underwater. Some brands of swim through rings are adjustable to allow you to create courses at different depths to add more challenge to underwater races.
Floating Basketball Game
Do you have mad skills on the court? Then take them to the pool with a floating basketball-like game. While this version is quite different from the land-based game, it is still a blast to play. It is a great pool activity for large groups, but you can still have a lot of fun making shots by yourself. A floating basketball game is an ideal way of keeping your shooting skills from getting rusty without leaving the pool.
Sometimes you need a day off from activities. When you want to be lazy and catch up on reading or relax with a cool beverage, a floating chair is a must-have pool accessory. Some options will let you stay out of the water completely, while others float under the water to let you keep cool on a hot day. With a few floating chairs and a projector, you could turn your pool area into the ultimate place for movie night.
