Swimming Pool Games – Bible Drill ideas #2

Looking for a fun ideas to kickoff a new year in Bible Drill? Try our swimming pool game ideas from our new ebook. These activities can be used at home or at a Bible Drill pool party.

1. Pool Hoop-de-loop

Materials needed: 2 pool noodles; Duct tape; foam noodles, knife, permanent marker

Prep: Make a giant foam noodle hoop by attaching the 2 pool noodles together, into the form of a circle, with duct tape; Cut a noodle into 1-2-inch pieces.  Write the Books of the Bible on the foam noodle pieces.

Do: Toss the giant foam noodle into the swimming pool, then toss the books of the Bible into the hoop.   Have the “swimmers” close their eyes and choose a book of the Bible, then they have to say the book before, book chosen and the book after. 

Variation:  Do this game with scripture verses.

2. Kickboard Books of the Bible Scavenger Hunt

Materials needed:  One kickboard per swimmer, foam noodles, knife, permanent marker

Prep: Cut a noodle into 1-2-inch pieces.  Write the Books of the Bible on the foam noodle pieces

Do: Take the Books of the Bible foam pieces and toss in the pool.  Swimmers will use their kickboard to “swim” across the pool to find the books of the Bible, in order. 

Variation:  You can do just the major prophets, the gospels, or the books of law, etc.  Consider making a color-coded set per swimmer and see who can find all the books and put them in order the quickest.

Idea: Create a set of books/verses on foam pieces for color coded for each driller. This makes it easier to social distance in the pool as they have fun with these activities.
