Are you looking into adding a pool to your backyard, or are you already the lucky owner of a Narellan Pool? Undoubtedly, one of the biggest enticements of a beautiful pool is the lifestyle it offers. Relaxed BBQ dinners with friends by the pool, simple and fun children’s birthday parties, and the many years of memories you’ll make with your backyard addition – these and more make having a pool a must for many.
The perfect day out in the pool will differ for everyone, but we know there are some fantastic activities to do in and around your pool that everyone in your family will love. In this blog, we share some of our favourite activities for the best pool day. Now all you need to do is pick the date and start looking forward to it!
When it comes to pool games, you have a huge variety to choose from. There are always the classics – think Marco Polo and chicken fight, but there are many others that are just as enjoyable. There are also pool toy sets you can purchase that you throw into the pool and let sink to the bottom – the person to collect most of the objects wins! You also have the option of using pool toys and inflatables for a fantastic pool day. Whether you have family battles with pool noodles, or race each other on inflatable pool swans, you’re bound to have plenty of fun.
If you’re happy to stretch the budget when it comes to pool accessories, an inflatable projector screen to watch movies on is an awesome addition to your pool space. You can make a day (or evening) of it, by having some snacks and drinks on hand, and watching your movie while floating on your favourite pool inflatable. If you’re inviting a couple of friends over, an inflatable movie screen could be the perfect accompaniment to your pool day.
Set up a family tent just outside the pool area and spend the evening with your pool as the main attraction. After an afternoon of swimming, you and your family can continue your day of fun by camping poolside! Put your pyjamas on and bring books, devices, and your favourite snacks into your tent, so you can have a relaxing night outside of the house. Camping poolside is a great way to introduce your children to how fun camping can be!
With a picnic by the pool, you can go as big or small as you like. They are ideal for family days in the backyard but are also wonderful if you’re expecting a bigger party of guests. You simply adjust the seating, food and drink requirements for the number of people you’re having over. Put your picnic blanket (or blankets) down on the grass, and bring along the picnic hamper packed full with delicious sandwiches, fruit and sweet treats. Make sure to have plenty of water on hand, and consider serving platters that will make serving and eating simple. For example, folding trays you’d use for breakfast in bed are perfect for poolside picnics!
Activities for the best pool day don’t end there, but as you can see, there are so many ways you can enhance your use of your swimming pool beyond swimming in it.
