12 Kid’s water activities to beat the heat

This week has been a hot one here in Louisiana!

So this next week at our summer camp I’ve decided to do an entire week of water activities to beat the heat but keep the kiddos cool and active!

Most of our kids at the camp are the typical new age kid that loves to stay inside and on video games so it’s going to be a challenge to get them to stay outside and active without the complaining but I think after the first activity– they will loosen up.

Here are some of the awesome activities that I have planned for them this week!

I really hope the kids love these outdoor activities because I know I am!

It looks like it’s going to be one wet and wild week at camp!

So what about you? What are some of your favorite kid’s outdoor water activities?

    I love them. I have a pre-teen boy, a teenage girl and a toddler at home..
    They aren’t always keen on going outside and the baby ALWAYS wants to get ourdoors. Becomes kind of tricky but I will try these with them. Let’s see what happens….
