This weekend, I had my first pool day of the year! I’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever because winter was so long. I thought I’d never lay out at the pool ever again! While I was perfectly content relaxing and reading, I kind of wish I had some games to play with my fellow pool-goers.
Usually, I bring some sort of pool game, but I didn’t have any this time. I was so excited to finally be out in the sun that I missed the boat. But when I got home, I promptly ordered a bunch of stuff for my next pool weekend. If you want to be the coolest kid at the pool, grab yourself the following:
I just bought a pizza towel, and it is definitely my most favorite purchase ever. Pool and beach towels never seem big enough, but this towel is four feet in diameter, which is perfect for lounging. And it looks like PIZZA. It comes in a pizza box! What more could you want?!
I don't even like donuts, and I am in love with this giant donut float. If you're one to lounge in the pool, you need this.
CAN YOU EVER BE COOLER THAN RIDING A T-REX IN THE WATER? NO. NO, YOU CAN'T.
Dolphin Ring Toss
This dolphin ring toss is so cute. I had to include it, plus it seems like a lot of fun. Sometimes the most simple games are the best ones.
Flamingo Cup Holders
For the more chill pool-goer who has to have a soda on hand in the water.
Who doesn't love a game of pool volleyball? Bring this out at your local pool and set up a bracket of teams to get everyone in on the fun.
Battle your friends with this amazing jousting game! Bonus: you can use this WHILE playing chicken for optimum fun.
Turn any pool into a rave with this underwater light. Seriously, I want this in my bathtub, pool, water bottle, you name it. Any body of water, I want this disco light.
I love swimming, but I'll admit that I kind of run out of things to do in the water. That's where pool games come in. Challenge a friend to a game of floating checkers or backgammon with this nifty doodad.
Shark Catcher Game
This is a fun little game where you use a shark net to hunt little fishies!
Water Catch Set
No one wants to play catch in the pool with regular gloves and balls. This Soak set is made for the water!
First of all, how adorable is this shark game? Second, this would be super fun in a big pool with a bunch of people playing.
