Squirt Gun Races!

Beat the heat and avoid summer boredom with a few games of Squirt Gun Races. With a few simple items you probably already have around the house. A squirt gun obstacle race course can be created that will keep your kids and their friends entertained for hours. Watching your kids play through the course will keep you entertained as well!


  • Sturdy string

  • Duct tape

  • Scissors

  • Plastic cups

  • Squirt guns

Setting this up couldn't be easier! You can use any span where you can secure the string so it is taunt. Over a pool is especially fun!

Get creative to play additional rounds in your squirt gun races. Here are some ideas to get you going. Have the players play by:

  • Using their non-dominate hand to play.
  • Hopping on one foot.
  • Have them balance a large paper clip on their head while completing the course.
  • Cover one eye and have the player use the opposite hand to play.
  • Cover one eye and have the player use the opposite hand to play, while hopping on one foot.
  • Add a marble or quarter in each cup to make them heavier and harder to move.
  • Play in teams of two, have the player with the squirt gun blindfolded, the other player tells the blindfolded player where to squirt the squirt gun. Have them change places and play the course from end to beginning.

If you have a large group of kids, time how long it takes for each of them to complete the course. Then compare everyone’s times to see who the winner is! You can also choose to play in teams instead of individuals. The possibilities are endless.
