Game description

Here you can organise a small Home Olympics. Long jump: the participant has to jump as far as possible from the edge of the pool into the water. The team leader writes down how far every child jumps. The one jumping the furthest wins. Far diving: If jumping gets boring, you can change to diving. The participants jump into the water and remain under water. This is not easy because you will ascend quickly. The team leader writes down how long everybody manages to stay under water.


The child, who remains the longest down, has won in this variant. It gets even harder if the kids have to bring back an object from the bottom of the pool. The one who jumps, dives and returns the object the quickest wins the game. Goggles might be helpful.
