Fun at-home water activities for kids during summer

Summer is in full swing and as the weather heats up, parents are constantly looking for activities to keep kids cool while encouraging mental and physical stimulation during this time.

There are a variety of cooling activities that kids can partake in, for example taking a trip to the beach, but if you’re looking for something closer to home, residential water inflatables are a great source of fun and physical exercise.

There are so many different types and styles of water slides to suite your needs. Here are some features that you may want to consider when thinking of purchasing a water slide inflatable:

1. Single slides, double slides and triple slides

Water slides come in many different shapes and sizes. One of the important things to consider when choosing the perfect water slide for your family is the number of slides it offers.

Single slides a best for younger children and if you don’t intend on regularly having multiple players using it. It’s the most basic water slide model on the market, but that’s not to say it doesn’t provide hours of fun and lots of cool down during summer.
