Even if your guests want to dress up in their regular Halloween costumes, just let them know that the pool is open for play and to bring their swimming suits so they will be ready for the other games you have planned.
- Pumpkin Diving – As a popular and thrilling Halloween pool party game, pumpkin diving is great for kids of all ages. Pick us as many pumpkins as your swimming pool can handle and place them all around your pool. You can make it simple with a small group by just making the winner the one that collects the most pumpkins. For larger groups, you can number the pumpkins with a permanent marker and separate the party into groups; each group that collects their numbered pumpkins first is the group that wins! No matter how you plan the game, pumpkin diving will quickly become an exciting event at your Halloween pool party.
- Halloween Pool Hunt – Similar to the traditional Easter egg hunt, place colored eggs stuffed with small prizes scattered around your pool and let the kids go Halloween egg hunting. Another way to add some spook to your Halloween pool party games is to use plastic eye balls instead of eggs. The winners that collect the most eggs are the ones that win the prize of the game.
