Summer is all about having fun and getting wet! From day trips to water park tickets, you could go broke trying to give your kids the best summer ever. Summer water fun doesn’t have to come at a price. You can have tons of wet and wild fun right in your own backyard with these cool summer water activities.
Our Favorite Summer Water Activities
Our kids love to have water fun in the backyard during the summer. From a young age, they were always playing in their water table either giving their toys a bath or creating some under sea adventure. Our backyard has seen everything from sprinkler time to duck races to creating the ultimate water slide.
It seems like the older they get the more imaginative their water play becomes. Last summer they invented Fence Water Blaster Drawing. They took water blasters and created pictures with water on our backyard fence. It was so simple, but it kept them entertained.
There are so many ways to have water fun right in your backyard. We have a list of awesome summer water activities that will not only keep your kids cool, but will keep them entertained as well.
