Happy National dolphin day! In honor of this day, I’m going to tell you about a great pool game to play at pool parties.
The goal of the game is to move a ball from one end of the pool to another using only your nose (because that’s how dolphins push balls). This game may take about 10 minutes to play and may cost about $6-$13 to play if you need to buy balls.
What you’ll need:
- One ball that floats in water per team (if you plan on using balls that you already have in your home, then you should make sure that they float).
- A pool deep enough for the kids to play the game in.
Break the swimming party guests into groups of four or more players. Make sure that you have one ball per team. Make sure that you have the same number of kids on each team. You can either have this game work as a race or part of a relay.
Like dolphins, team members can only use theirs noses to push the ball from one end of the pool to the other, and then back using their nose (although generally using the face to push the ball works too). Only one teammate goes at a time. If anyone is caught using his or her hands to move the ball, that person will have to return to the starting point.
The first team to finish wins!
