Oh, has it been HOT this week! We’ve spent plenty of time in the creek, playing with mud, and jumping in the sprinkler (affiliate link) to keep cool . . . but the boys needed something new to do. Water blaster games to the rescue!
We purchased our water blasters for $2/each from a local dollar store. The boys were so excited to begin!
GAME 1: Dot Blaster Wars
To play Dot Blaster Wars, simply dot washable tempera paint onto each child. When someone loses their dots, they are “out.” The child remaining with the most dots wins!
Game 2: Ping-Pong Ball Float
To play Ping-Pong Ball Float you will need water blasters, one ping-pong ball, a bucket, and a pitcher. In this cooperative game, the children must work together to fill the pitcher to “float” the ping-pong ball out onto the ground.
Game 3: Bun Blasters
Though Bun Blasters sounds like a trendy new workout, this game is a wet, drippy, disgusting mess! To play, string stale hamburger buns in between trees. The player that blasts their bun off the line first is the winner!
This game was their favorite!
I had a lot of fun keeping the boys busy and cool with these games! Water blasters are definitely a summer must-have!
