Kid’s Party Games: Water Cup Races

By  | Last Updated:  

How many water games have your guys played this summer? I just found a new one. The boys love it. It’s from Allison, at All for the Boys. It’s one of those rare activities that can be played even when no one else is around (those “I’m bored, Mom” moments), and it also works when there’s a gang (think friendly competition). It all revolves around the lowly squirt gun and a plastic cup. It doesn’t use tons of water which I know is a consideration for some areas. Sounding better and better, huh?

Go visit Allison for game specifics. While you’re there, look up her Fort Friday posts. She has all kinds of inspiration for making forts—another great guy thing. I even saw some I’d like to play in!

He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
