Adding games to your pool party can make the celebration even more enjoyable. Here are some fun activities for guests of all ages:


Set up a cornhole board on the pool deck and let guests take turns tossing bean bags. Customize the boards with patriotic designs to fit the theme.

Giant Jenga

Create a giant Jenga set using large wooden blocks. Players take turns removing blocks from the tower and stacking them on top until it collapses. This game is perfect for adding a competitive edge to your party.

Ring Toss

Place a set of rings on the pool deck and set up bottles or other objects at varying distances. Guests can aim and toss the rings, with points awarded for each successful throw.

Water Balloon Toss

This classic game is ideal for a pool deck. Have guests pair up and stand a few feet apart. They toss a water balloon back and forth, taking a step back after each successful catch. The last team with an intact balloon wins.

Pool Noodle Limbo

Pool Noodle Limbo

Use pool noodles to play a game of limbo. Have two people hold the ends of a pool noodle horizontally while guests take turns trying to limbo underneath without touching the noodle or falling.

Patriotic Scavenger Hunt

Hide small flags, stars, or other patriotic items around the pool deck area. Give guests a list of clues or riddles to solve in order to find them. This game adds an element of adventure to your party.

Splash Contest

Organize a splash contest where guests show off their best cannonballs, belly flops, or other creative pool jumps. Award prizes for the biggest splash, most impressive dive, or funniest jump.

Underwater Tug-of-War

Set up a tug-of-war rope in the pool and divide guests into two teams. Have them compete to see which team can pull the other across a designated line. This game is a fun and refreshing way to test strength and teamwork.
