5 Best Backyard Water Games for All Ages

Water Limbo


All you need for this game is a hose with a nozzle that will allow for a straight, steady stream of water to use as a limbo stick. Kids must maneuver their bodies under the stream of water without getting wet — the lower the stream is, the harder it is to stay dry. The stream will be lowered when every kid makes it under the previous stream.

Crawling isn't allowed — you have to walk, arching your back as you go! If the ground is too slippery for kids to arch their backs, let them hunch forward, instead.
