Some games for children to play in the pool include the tag games Octopus and Marco Polo, as well as the Simon Says-style game Jump or Dive. Other games to play in the pool include Find a Coin and Noodle Joust.
It is important to properly supervise children and ensure they are playing safely whenever they play games in the pool. Children should not run around the pool deck area, push each other into the pool or dunk each other underwater. Diving games should only be played at the deep end of the pool, where the water is at least 6 to 8 feet deep.
