25 Water Games for Kids To Play All Summer Long

Due to a recent shift in my career path, I'm staying home with my kids this summer—all 10 weeks of it! There will be no camp to tire them out or sitter to entertain them. Luckily, we have access to one thing really works for filling out long summer days: water. My kids—and yours, I bet—like to get wet.

Our family started a Boredom Busters jar: a painted Mason jar full of ideas to keep the kiddies busy. Anyone complaining of boredom can open it and pick out an activity. Many of the ideas come from the Mommy Poppins' 100 Summer Play Activities List and a few from the list of '70s Outdoor Games. But their absolute favorites are water-based, like the 25 cool and splishy-splashy activities below.
