I like to play stars. One person is on one side of the pool and the others are on the opposite. The lone person calls out the initials of a movie. You get 3 hints, and the first one to get a guess yells " stars!" and swims to the other side. If they are right, they are the next person to call out a movie. Wrong, they swim back and the round continues.

I love to have weird jump contests in my pool. Everyone takes a turn doing a crazy jump off the
diving board. One person is a judge and they pick a winner! The winner either gets a prize or gets to be the judge next time. Have fun!

I love Categories! I was playing it with my cousins one time, and we thought of all these crazy colors like peach, fuschia, and indigo, like stuff that the "it" person couldn't guess. In the end, "it" just gave up because none of us were going to the other side.

Whirlpool and Categories sound fun! I always play Marco Polo or Sharks & Minnows with my cousins in their pool. Chicken sounds kinda dangerous...

Have u ever played colors? Its really fun. Every one except for the "it " person picks a color. .The "it" has to stand on the edge of the pool. The "it" has to call out colors while facing away from the pool, and if she calls the color someone picked, that person has to swim to the other side of the pool. If the it person hears them swimming away, they jump in the pool and try to tag the swimmer before they make it to the the other side.

i think you meant SHOULDERS???

Here's another way how my friends and I play category:
I didn't know that there was another way to play category! We normally only play it with 3 people. What we do is 2 people are holding 1 person in their hands, that person is it. The person gets 3 tries to guess it right. Each time they get it wrong, we tip them backwards underwater. If they get it wrong the whole time, at the end of their turn we let our arms down and they drop underwater.
