Having fun outside is what toddlers do best. When summer time rolls around, a great way to keep toddlers entertained is to take them to the pool. Here are a few ideas on pool games for toddlers that you can play the next time you go swimming:
On those hot days when you know ahead of time that you will be going to the pool, you may want to try the “ice game”. The “ice game” is something that will keep your child entertained, and it will also help them learn. The night before your trip to the pool, make some ice cubes, all different shapes if you can. Pack them in a cooler or thermos and bring them along to the pool. When your child gets in the pool, have him take an ice cube in with him and watch it melt. This will help to teach children about hot and cold while also helping to cool them down.
Another great game that toddlers will love is a scavenger hunt in the wading pool. Bring a bucket and some pool toys and have your toddler search for certain types of toys in the pool. This game will help them learn how to share with other children who may also be interested in the toys that you have brought. If your child is still getting used to going into the water, this may encourage him to wade further into the water than he would otherwise.
The last great game for toddlers involves something they love doing- pouring out water. Bring watering cans or jugs with spouts to the pool. Your toddler will have hours of fun filling the jugs and pouring the water back out.
