Summer is in full swing now and if your kids are anything like mine you’ve either heard “I’m bored” at least a couple times already or they’ve spent a bit too much time on electronics. Either way, with the long weekend coming up, I wanted to share a bunch of tech-free ideas for things kids can do outside at home to enjoy the summer days and nights.

Looking for some new things to ramp up the fun in your backyard? You’ll want to check out the line of H2OGO! outdoor water toys that Bestway came out with this summer!
H2OGO! Tether Ball Splash
H2OGO! Tether Ball Splash takes the classic fun of tetherball and infuses it with a new level of wet and wild excitement. Kids are able to battle each other in a heated game of schoolyard tetherball while staying cool as they swing and splash the spinning spray ball all the way to victory. Easy to assemble in minutes, the inflatable 6.5 foot Tether Ball Splash attaches to a garden hose and has a built-in water chamber at the base to keep the fun upright all summer long.
H2OGO! Color Wave Pool
The pool is not just for fun during the day. Kids can splash around all night long in a rainbow of colors as the H2OGO! Color Wave Pool’s built-in LED lights illuminate the walls of the pool in an array of five different neon colors. The pool is constructed with sturdy I-beam construction, extra-wide sidewalls, holds 147 gallons of water and is designed for easy assembly and take-down.
H2OGO! Doodle Glow Pool
Pushing the bounds of creativity, The H2OGO! Doodle Glow Pool takes the artwork off of the refrigerator and puts it on the bottom of the pool. Utilizing innovative technology, the Doodle Glow’s fluorescent floor doubles as a blank canvas for kids to create an underwater, glow-in-the dark art show. Using two patent-pending LED underwater flashlights and a stencil set, kids can let their imagination splash wildly as they create an underwater world of glow art. Summer is so much fun when you invest in a blow up swimming pool for the kids! You can find even more fun pools here- https://www.globosurfer.com/best-blow-up-swimming-pools-for-kids/

H2OGO! Backyard Water slides
H2OGO! single, double and triple backyard waterslides are back after sweeping across the nation in a tidal wave of fun last summer. The H2OGO! water slide’s inflatable launch pad at the start of every slide reduces the impact of the landing. Without the ‘ouch’ of a belly-flop, riders are smoothly propelled down the 18-foot slide into the drench pool. Kids can either take turns sliding down the single slide or race each other on the double and triple slides.
