Splish Splash Summer Fun!

Summer is one of the most celebrated seasons of the year when everyone opens their pool or go to the beach especially during vacation time.  Every family all over the world plans and enjoys picnics, party, backyard events, and everyone enjoys the fun, young or old even if it is just in your backyard pool.  Kids love jumping in the water especially in the pool on this hot weather.  Who doesn’t love to get wet?  It is a fun and refreshing way to cool down, especially when the weather is in the 90s.  We can enjoy summer by having some fun and have some pool party, not just a plain pool party but a party with a special theme, and gather every family and friends you have to enjoy food and drinks, barbeques, fun games in the pool that are not only enjoyed by kids but by everyone.

Make it a memorable summer gathering by having a theme party.  Gather all your pool accessories, from beach balls to pool noodles, inflatable water slides for the kids and tiki bar for the adults, water games for kids and teenagers like water polo, tic tac toe game, and more, the possibilities are endless.  Let it be a fun summer to remember that kids may want to come back again next year.

Don’t forget your fur-babies because they love to join the fun and get wet too.  Just remember to have your guidelines and necessary safety rules for everyone to follow.  It is better safe than sorry.

Some guidelines are listed below to add on your checklist:

  • Swim in areas accompanied by a lifeguard if you are going to a public pool.
  • Be observant and read and obey all pool rules and posted signs.
  • Children or beginner swimmers should wear a floatation device in and around the water.
  • Set water safety rules for the entire family based on their swimming abilities.
  • Become informed of the water environment you are in and its potential hazards. This may include it’s deep and shallow areas, it’s currents, etc..
  • Check out the local weather conditions and forecasts prior to swimming.
  • When entering the water, use a feet-first method.
  • Dive only when the area is clearly marked for diving.
  • Do not consume alcohol while swimming, diving or boating.
  • Know how to prevent, recognize, and respond to all emergencies.
  • Never, never, leave children alone next to a pool. Children are very curious individuals and may fall within a fraction of a second.
  • Have your phone handy next to you, in case of emergencies, or look around for telephones near the pool area and sightings of post for 9-1-1 sign in clear view.
  • Learn how to perform CPR on all individuals and post the instructions in clear view for others to refer see and learn as well.
  • Wear sunscreen.  Protecting your skin from UV Rays is very important.
  • Drink a lot of water even if you don’t feel thirsty.  This can prevent heatstroke.
  • Always keep basic lifesaving devices near the pool, such as a rope, a pole, or a personal flotation device.
  • Completely remove your pool cover before allowing anybody to enter the pool.
  • Don’t leave pool furniture close to your fence, this would enable a child to climb.
  • Don’t ever run near a pool, the wet ground can cause an individual to slip and fall.
