This is the mister that casts a color-changing spray . As water flows through the mister it propels a turbine generator that powers the color changing LEDs - producing a 6 1/2' high by 19 1/3' wide plume of fine mist that seamlessly transitions from red to blue to green to yellow to purple. Tell me the kids would not love that at night?

Fun Sprinkler and Water Party Games for the little ones

MUSICAL SPRINKLER

Hook up a sprinkler to your water source, but don't turn it on yet. Instruct players to move around the sprinkler area, dancing, hopping, or striking funny poses. When the sprinkler is turned on, kids must freeze in position without moving until the sprinkler is turned off again. Bathing suits a "must" for this game.

SPONGE TAG

A twist on traditional tag, this game is played with a big soft sponge like the kind used to wash your car. The player who is "It" must use the wet sponge to tag another player, who then becomes the new "It". There will be no doubt about who is tagged because they'll be wearing a big wet splat mark on their back!

ICE CUBE MELTING RACE

Give each child an ice cube and see who can get it to melt the fastest in their hands. Working in pairs or teams is best, so when a child's hands get too cold, they can pass the ice cube off to a teammate.

SPRINKLER OBSTACLE COURSE

Set up a wet obstacle course that requires each child to jump over the sprinkler, crawl through the sprinkler, and run through the sprinkler.

SIMON SAYS WITH SPRINKLER

Play "Simon Says" in the sprinkler. Be sure to include sprinkler specific commands like "Simon says jump over the sprinkler" or "Simon says do a somersault in the water."

Some Yard Sprinklers can provide lots of fun too. Let the kids play and water the lawn when you are done - so you get 2 for the price of one. So check out some of the unique choices below.

Raintrain Traveling Sprinkler - I own this one and love it

Nelson Raintrain Traveling Sprinkler
Nelson Raintrain Traveling Sprinkler

      I love the idea of all kids having a sprinkler. It's really fun, cools the kids down and they are doing exercise which is what I like the most. They are running, jumping and hopping and it's a great way to keep kids in shape.

      Wonderful list. We have one of the traveling sprinkers and they are wonderful for watering the yard. I wouldn't recommend around small children, however, as the build up alot of pressure (that's what makes them travel) and a small child could get hurt when the arm swings around. I've received a few tremendous bruises getting to close to one.
