For the Toss and Catch game, use duct tape to make the jugs more decorative rather than instead of paint because paint is too heavy and will make the jug collapse and not work properly.
Instead of buying a beanbag or koosh ball, you can make your own bean bag using a bandana, strong Velcro tape and rice or popcorn.
The underwater viewer is great for the beach but it’s also fun in a wading pool or bathtub (likewise with the basketball game).
Stock up on pool noodles! They are versatile, fun and can be reused in a number of ways. As the summer begins to wane look for sales and 2 for 1 deal and then store your noodles away until next summer.
