What's summer without splash pads!?! This Adventure is all about exploring local splash pads!!
Do you know where all of the splash pads are in your area? How many have you been to?
For this Adventure you will check out some Splash pads in your community.
Here are some fun games to play at the splash pad. The ability to play the games may depend on the layout and type of splash pad.
1. Musical Chairs – Splash Pad Style
Have the kids line up along each of the spouts. When water shoots from the spout, that child is out of the game. The goal of the game is to stay on the splash pad as long as possible. Beware! Sometimes all the spouts will shoot up at once.
2. Fill the Cup
Have the children take empty cups, bowls, or container. Whoever can fill their cup up with water first wins. The oscillating, random feature of the portable splash pad will keep the kids guessing as they try to guess which spout will shoot water out next!
3. Stay on the Splash Pad
Have all participants stay on the Splash Pad. The goal is to stay on the splash pad without getting hit by the water. Kids must try to not get wet, but also stay on the Splash Pad. Put about a 1 – 3 minute time limit for some quick, easy fun.
Take this Adventure to the next level by coming up with some game ideas of their own, and also help promote safety. Organize a group trip to the Splash pad where you can teach your games and safety tips to others in the group.
Here are a couple of rules to remember:
Take a picture of you splashing around at the splash pad and post it to your social media sites with the hashtags #Splash and #MyDiscoveryDestination
