Close up of feet in kiddie pool

Freeze-Up


Put that kiddie pool to good use! Kids love this game, but if it's hot enough, adults will play, too.

Fill the kiddie pool with water, add ice cubes, and have each person try to remove the ice cubes with their feet. For a real challenge, have each person remove the ice cubes using only one foot. The person to remove the most ice cubes is the winner.
