Four Kids’ Water Games to Play in Shallow Water

Are your kids itching to play in some nearby water, but you don’t have their swimsuits?

Looking for new ways to cool off in a shallow creek or kids’ fountain?

You and your kids can make a splash in water that’s only knee-deep and have a ball doing it.

In this article, I’ll teach you to play four shallow-water games that will keep you cool when you need to stay relatively dry.

Kids water games without swimsuits: Four shallow-water games that will keep your kids cool when they need to stay dry.

Why Play Shallow Water Games?

Just let them jump in, you say? It’s true, there’s nothing like bombing into a pool, diving under the waves at the beach or launching yourself off a rope swing into a lake.

But sometimes you need to keep the kids clean and dry. Other times the best you’ve got is a couple feet of water to splash around in.

This is the time for shallow-water games.
