Mermaid swim races
Beat the heat at your next pool party and stay cool by playing mermaid swim races. This mermaid swimming game is a great activity for a pool party, a little extra sibling rivalry or just because there is a great gathering at the pool.
What you need:
- swimming pool
- plastic shells
Number of players:
Run some string through some plastic shells to create a shell necklace for each "mermaid" swimmer. Tie the ends securely.
Line up the swimmers at the end of the pool and explain the first "mermaid" to reach the end of the pool is the winner.
Yell "Go" and watch as the mermaids take off!
