Wading Pool Activities for Kids

Wade and Wonder Activity

Try this wade and wonder activity and let your fingers guess the watery secrets. Splashing around in a wading pool is fun, but you can only splash so long. If your energy runs out before the heat fades, try this with a partner.

What You'll Need:

  • Wading pool
  • At least 10 floating toys
  • Blindfold

Drop 10 to 20 floating toys in the pool. Blindfold one player while the other acts as a guide. One by one, the guide should hand the toys to the blindfolded player.

Can the blindfolded player guess which toy is which? Keep track of how many he or she gets right. Now switch places, and see how well the guide does when the tables are turned.
