Summer Water Balloon Fun for Kids in Hampton Roads

Kids + Summer + Water = Fun!  What kid, big or little, doesn’t love playing with water during the hot summer months?  And even if you don’t live near water or have a pool, lots of fun can be had with simple water activities.

Two of our families most favorite summer water activities also involve water balloons. Obviously, we set a few rules before the fun starts but breaking water balloons is a ton of fun for the whole family.  Here are are favorite water activites.

Water Balloon Pinata

The Water Balloon pinata is a fun way to cool off on a hot summer day.  The kids love this and it gets them up and moving.  Just be sure to only use a plastic bat for swinging at the pinata. Part of our Summer Fun guide of family activities.  You can use the traditional way of filling water balloons or use this nifty Pumponator to simplify filling the balloons.

Biodegradable Water Balloons

Okay, we wouldn’t really call these fights, but more like friendly family summer fun.  Gather the whole family and take turns be the balloon filler.  Let kids line up for balloons and then wait until you give the signal.  Everyone will be fair game, even the water filler, but it’s a fun, safe way to play with water.  Be sure to pick up all the balloon pieces after the game so they aren’t around for little ones or animals to pick up.
