5 Best Backyard Water Games for All Ages

Water Balloon Piñata
Here is a fun twist on a party favorite — the piñata!
Fill about 7-10 water balloons with water and tie them off. Tie each filled balloon a couple of inches apart to a piece of string. (Make sure you use string sturdy enough to support the weight of all the filled balloons.) Leave enough string on either side of the balloons so you are able to tie each end of the string to a low-hanging branch or other area outside.
Using a plastic baseball bat, let your children take turns swinging at the balloons. Make sure the children who aren't swinging stand a safe distance back to avoid any accidents. Whoever hits (and breaks!) the balloons will get a surprise shower!
