Swimming pool


This is a swimming pool game. A person is chosen to be 'it'. They get out and stand on the side of the pool facing away from the other players. The other players line up in the pool on one side near the person who is 'it'. The group must then pick a category. This can be anything such as colors, kinds of animals, states, deserts, brands of candy, flavors of ice cream etc. For example, if the chosen category is colors, each player picks a color in their mind (but they don't say it out loud). After everyone has made their choice, the person who is 'it' begins saying different colors (or states or animals etc.). When the color that a player has chosen is yelled by the person who is 'it', the player swims/moves to the other side of the pool as quietly as they can. Sometimes more than one player will have chosen the same thing. Now comes the fun part. If 'it' hears any player moving then they can jump or dive into the pool and try to tag them. If they are successful, then the player who was tagged becomes the next 'it'. Otherwise 'it' stays the same. However, if the person who is 'it' turns around and everyone is still touching the side of the pool, it is considered a foul and they must do ten push ups or do a cannonball or whatever the group decides.
