School has started, so it’s time to incorporate some learning into playtime.  Because it’s still hot outside, outdoor water games are a winner.  And squirt guns can be a surprising, but rewarding educational tool.

Spelling Splash

Start a family spelling splash.  Get everyone a squirt gun—for less than $3.50 each, you can get everyone a fun, rather powerful water gun at ToySplash—and let the games begin.  Take turns spelling words and when your child is correct, he may squirt a person of his choice.  If he’s wrong, however, someone squirts him.  It’s a fun way to cool off and reinforce some spelling skills.  This game also works well with multiplication tables, state capitals, and more!
