Organize water fight date idea illustration

Are you and your partner competitive by nature? If so, planning out a water fight can be a great way to spend time together, have fun, and even get a little exercise. This is a perfect activity for any hot summer day.

Preparation steps:

  • Water fights can be as basic or advanced as you would like them to be. If you are looking for a cheap way to cool off after a long day of working in the yard together, all you’ll need is your garden hose and a few large cups for splashing.
  • If you want to make an afternoon out of this event, and really get your competitive juices flowing, then you want to pick up some good quality water guns. There are dozens of different water gun models on the market today, so make sure you each choose one (or more) guns that will really get the other person wet. Adding in a few packages of water balloons is a great way to add in some strategic options to your fight.

Some tips:

  • The only downside to a water fight is when you run out of water and are left at the mercy of your partner. Consider setting up two ‘bases’ in the area where you will do battle, each of which is stocked with a water source, some pre-filled water balloons, and something to shield you from attack. This will make refilling your guns faster and easier, so you can get back to the fight right away. No matter how you have this water fight set up, you will not find a better way to cool down on a hot day.
