With America’s increasing awareness of physical health has come an increasing desire to stay active and make exercise fun. Most people don’t associate the hot tub with exercise – in fact, they associate it with passive relaxation. Yet a hot tub can be the ideal place for physical activity, especially family games. If you seek to stay active and lose or maintain weight during the holidays, hot tub games are an easy, painless way to do so. SpaCap has found some of the most popular family hot tub games for you and your loved ones to enjoy.
You’ll need: A Ping-Pong ball or rubber ducky.
Object of the game: To get the floating object to the other team’s side of the tub using water or air.
How to play: Form teams of 2-4 people each. Each team sits on its own side of the hot tub. On a signal, each team tries to get their object to touch the opposite side of the tub to earn one point. The object cannot be touched, but blowing, splashing, and making waves are allowed. The first team to earn three points wins.
You’ll need: Several Ping-Pong balls.
Object of the game: To stay in the tub without letting balls touch you.
How to play: On a signal, someone drops five Ping-Pong balls into the hot tub. Everyone must then scramble away from the balls. The balls cannot touch you, nor can you touch a ball with any part of your body. You must keep feet inside the tub at all times. If a ball touches you, you must sit outside the tub until there is one player left. Every fifteen seconds, two balls must be added to the tub. The last person inside is the winner.
Pass the Bottle
You’ll need: A durable plastic bottle filled with water, tightly capped.
Object of the game: To pass the bottle completely around the hot tub without using your hands.
How to Play: Players may sit in different places around the hot tub. Players can pass the bottle using any body part, including backsides, except their hands. Players may not use the same body parts twice in a row (e.g.: don’t pass the bottle from your neck to another’s neck; pass from neck to knee, neck to arm, etc.) If the bottle is dropped, the player who drops it must perform a penalty task and the game starts again. If you get good at passing a sealed bottle, try passing an opened one without spilling anything. You can also use open or closed bottles that have been in the freezer for extra fun.
