Outdoor Water Play This Summer

Yes, we are all starting to feel the wind down of summer starting, but there is still plenty of time to have outdoor water play!

Outdoor water play is a popular summer time activity with kids!

You don’t need to have a pool or even a sprinkler to enjoy outdoor water play on a hot summer day. This summer, my children have been playing with a Nerf Super Soaker and a Nerf Rebelle and they have had a blast!

With the “no spraying people’s faces” and “only spray someone if they are consenting to participate in the outdoor water play” rules in effect, the kids have enjoyed spraying eachother, trying to write words on our brick wall with water and washing the new vehicle that we got at the beginning of the summer.

I fill up a HUGE bin with water and they can refill their Super Soaker and Rebelle independently, which has been great! The Super Soaker holds a lot more water than the Rebelle, which makes it a bit heavier to hold, but also more ideal for my 5 year old son who doesn’t enjoy the re-fill aspect of water play.

My daughter took Archery lessons at camp this summer and she was able to practice her aim with her Nerf Rebelle.

While the Nerf Rebelle has been branded towards girls, my son enjoys having a turn playing with it, just the same as my daughter enjoys using her brother’s Super Soaker.

    These look really fun. I love that they give an option for girls but now a days I know some boys who would love the purple. Thanks for sharing water guns are always a big hit in our house:)

    I think the Nerf toys are so versatile as far as ‘gender’ goes… heck I still have a blast with Nerf lol!

    So glad that Nerf is gearing their product line towards the girls selections. We have 3 girls and 2 boys for younger children in our family including my sisters kids and we all love getting together at Grandma and Papa’s to have a Nerf War! We all get involved and laugh for hours and hours. The kids just love it, and the adults too. Some times I think the adults enjoy it a little more then the kids do LOL

    My boys love the wading pool and going to the beach. We go to the water everyday if it’s warm enough and if it’s not raining. We are lucky enough to live close to the beach!

    This year, for my baby girl, we just use a bunch of different sized containers/cups, and a few jugs of water. Kept her busy for hours….
    Also made for a great photo session 🙂

    I love playing water games in the hot days of summer. Our family also spends a lot of time at the beach and at the pool. Come winter, we are in the house most of the time, so we have to play when we can.

    Playing with water is so much fun for the kids when it is hot! We also spend lots of time in the water! The Nerf Rebelle looks like something my niece would like.

    What fun we have with the grandkids and playing with water in the summer heat. I often have them drive their bikes through the hose I am holding, they get cool and their bike gets washed

  17. DARLENE W says:

    Good old fashioned fun, water balloons!

  18. DARLENE W says:
