5 Cool Water Toys to Help You Beat the Heat
Every year It seems like it's getting more difficult to find creative ways to beat the summer heat. So with summer just around the corner, we’ve put together a list of great water toys that are sure to be a hit with the whole family.
Slip N Slides
Slip N Slides are a time-tested favorite for kids of all ages. From massive slides that take up entire hillsides to smaller ones that fit right in your backyard, this water toy is easy to set up, simple to use, and a safe bet to keep the kids happy and busy.
Above Ground Pools
It may not have a giant water slide but it does fit in the front or back yard. Depending on the size, it could take only a few minutes to fill-up. Once the kids start playing in it, provides hours of entertainment.
Water guns can add some flair to your above ground pool, give your kids some new creative games (laser tag - water gun style) or even help them prank dad when he comes home from work. Toys like the Double Barreled Water Shooters are nearly as timeless as slip n slides, and it’s nearly impossible to find a kid who doesn’t love playing with these water toys. As an added bonus, all the running around that a water gun fight requires helps your kids stay happy and healthy.
If your kids are a bit older, water rockets are a great toy to use to stay cool during the summer. Setting up a Splash Blaster Hydro Rocket means kids will spend hours trying to balance the rocket on an increasingly taller jet of water - instead of in front of the TV. Water rocket designs are more creative now than ever before, which means kids of most ages can enjoy them.
Perhaps the original water toy - and a favorite for staying cool during the summer, is the water balloon. Your kids can invite their friends over for a water balloon fight and be occupied for hours. Playing capture-the-flag, hide-and-seek, or other games with water balloons is just another creative way to beat that heat this summer.
It doesn’t take a ton of money to keep cool during the summer months. It just takes a bit of ingenuity, some good water toys and the desire to have fun!
