Water Balloon Fun...1...2...3...Throw!

Summer is quickly winding down.  But, thankfully, August is one of the hottest months so there are still plenty of days left to squeeze in some last minute authentic summer fun.  Here in Texas, it's been crazy hot.  Ok, insanely hot – something unbelievable like 35 days over 100 degrees before August even started! 

I was tired of simply heading to the pool or waterpark to stay cool, so the other day I surprised my kids with some good ol' fashioned water balloons.  Sure, it took twice as long to fill them up as it did to throw them, but it was worth it to see the smiles on their faces and hear their giggles.  My son had fun trying to throw them at me, while my daughter just liked dropping them on the grass and watching them pop.

I grew up playing with water balloons by having a simple water balloon toss contest. However, my neighbor shared a fun idea for water balloons that I had never heard of before.  Every summer she lets her daughter have a water balloon party with her friends and they have a water balloon war similar to paintball.  Her daughter spends all morning filling an entire laundry basket with water balloons.  They set an unfolded Lifetime banquet table on its side in the yard and use it as a base and protective barrier to take cover behind as they launch the balloons at each other. Super simple, yet super fun and the kids look forward to it every year.

Once I started looking around online, I quickly realized a simple water balloon toss is only a mere beginning.  If you're looking for other clever games to play with water balloons before summer is over, check out these sites I found that describe dozens of games to play with water balloons - everything from musical chairs to water balloon shaving!  Have fun!

Lifetime adjustable tables
Lifetime adjustable tables are a dream come true for anyone who needs something other than the standard table height. Lifetime adjustable tables work well in arts and crafts as well as preschool and kindergarten environments, and anywhere you want to change the height of your work surface. Gardeners have found Lifetime adjustable tables work very well starting seedlings early. Since theyre not wood they wont rot, and because the metal used is powder-coated theyre strong, yet rust-resistant. Lifetime adjustable tables are available with free shipping from BuyLifetime.com.
