With summer in full swing, you may be looking at ways to keep your children occupied and cool without breaking the bank. Here are some tried and tested ideas for summer water fun.

1. Slip N Slide

For an investment of around $20, this is guaranteed to keep your children amused for hours. Available from stores such as Big W, all you need to do is connect the waterslide to your garden hose and you are done. The slide is suitable for children 3-12 years.

3. Wahu Mini Soccer Ball

Wahu manufacture a number of different water games and their mini soccer ball is one of my favourites. It retails between $10-15 from places such as BigW or Uncle Pete’s Toys and ensures hours of water fun for the kids and adults. The ball is made from waterproof neoprene skin and is great to bounce on water. Naturally you can play soccer with it or even water volleyball. Wahu also makes a full size soccer ball and footballs.
