Fun Vacation Game

When we were in Florida this month, we took the kids to the pool at night after dinner. Like The Big Guy said "The smell of a pool at night makes it really feel like vacation." I thought about it and he's right. It's really the only time we ever night swim and that makes it extra special!

Because it was a little chilly during our trip, the kids "swam" in the hot tub and we played a fun game of find the rings...only we used glow necklaces in the dark pool.

A package of 3 necklaces from the dollar store yielded hours of nighttime swimming fun. The other children at the pool were intrigued and thought it was so fun to dive under the water to look for glowing rings!

Toss them in:



Dive down to search for them:



Show off your glowing prize!
