Backyard hose water play

Backyard hose water play

There's nothing better than running around in the back garden with a hose (or a bucket of water if there's water restrictions) on a hot day! Hours can be happily spent dreaming up watery games.

What you need:

  • Garden hose
  • Buckets

Number of players:


There are many ways kids can have fun with a garden hose and a bucket:

  • Go around the backyard watering the plants.
  • Have a water fight game using buckets of water. 
  • Use a stream of water to play a game of limbo (by going under the stream) or high jump ( by jumping over the stream)
  • Use the stream of water for target practice. Use chalk to draw a bulls eye and then try and hit the bulls eye with water.
  • Build a dam in a garden bed.
