The truth about making money from home
A pool can be a lot of fun during the summer, but it can also be easy to run out of things to do in the pool (after all, "lounging by the pool and getting sun" or "exercising in the pool" can only be taken so far!). One great way to make sure you (and your family, and your guests) get the most out of your pool during the summer is to use the pool to play some games; if you are thinking you might need some new "pool games," here are a few to keep in mind.
Marco Polo: Marco Polo is the old standby of pool games, as it can be played in any pool, with any number of people; one person is "it" in Marco Polo, and the game is played much like tag - except that the person assigned to catch the others must keep their eyes closed at all times! With their eyes closed, the person calls out "Marco," and everyone else in the pool calls out "Polo"; the person who is "it" must use the "Polo" calls of others to try to figure out where they are, and to tag them! Volleyball: A pool volleyball set can be one of the greatest investments you can make for your pool, as you can set up a game with as few as two people and as many as 10 or 12; set up the net on a hot afternoon, split everyone into teams, and enjoy! Basketball: Just like pool volleyball, pool basketball can be played with a varying number of people; the investment in a pool basketball goal will be well worth it, as you, your family, and your friends are sure to get lots of use out of it! Use your creativity: Finally, realize that you can turn just about any object or idea into the centerpiece for a pool game; collect the pool toys you have in your pool shed, and come up with a game that will be easy to learn and easy to play; when you do this, everyone is sure to have a great time!
