Looking for a fun and silly game to play with the kids these last days of summer before school starts back up?
This summer game for kids is perfect for groups of 4 or more kids, and guarantees a lot of laughs!
Directions for Water Wing Fishing Relay summer game:
This game is meant to be a relay between 2 or more teams and is particularly fun with teams of 4 or more kids. (Although with a few tweaks you could play it with as little as 2 children.)
To play, you will need a set of water wings for each team, lots of plastic sea animals (check the dollar store or your own bathtub toys), and a large plastic spoon and bowl for each team.
Scatter the plastic sea animals out in the yard or driveway.
Place your large plastic bowls about 20 feet away from the plastic animals. (For younger kids you may want to put the bowls closer, for older kids make it more of a challenge and put them further away.)
To play: kids will take turns putting on the water wings and then using the spoon they will scoop up sea animals and bring them back to their team’s bowl.
The team with the most animals in the bowl after each child has had a turn wins!
I loved watching the kids use team work to help their teammates get into the water wings faster.
At then end of each game we pulled the sea animals out of the bowl to count them together — reinforcing counting skills for those younger ones!
End summer with a bang and throw an end of summer/start of the school year party for the kids! Invite a few friends over and play your own round of Water Wing Fishing Relay!
Enjoy those last few days!
This game looks so fun!

I love the use of the water wings. I bet the kids just had a blast! Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea.
I have to say it was almost as much fun watching as playing!
A simple idea but I can see why the children love it. a great use of an afternoon with lots of children to entertain
I had fun watching them each try to get those water wings on without an adult’s help! 😉
