Have about 5-6 sturdy tubes (or small, donut-shaped flotation devices) – “Bumper Boats” – for as many players as you have in the pool (more for a lake). This is like “Bumper Cars” at a fair or carnival, only in water. Tell students to kick off the sides of the pool and try to knock as many people off their “boat” as possible. Last one floating wins.
Announce the no-brainer tips: no hitting, scratching, pulling hair, biting, decapitating, etc.
