How to Make Your Swim Spa Fun for Kids

Don’t let boredom be your kid’s reason for losing interest in your Jacuzzi® swim spa. Instead of mindlessly swimming lap after lap, keep them motivated by injecting several games to keep their time in the swim spa fun and engaging. Remember, that while using a swim spa is a great way to get in shape and master the art of swimming, it’s also a fantastic place to have fun. Keep reading to learn more.

Boogie Board

Your kids will absolutely love the wave pool option that’s featured in your Jacuzzi® swim spa. We recommend cranking up the jets and attaching a boogie board to the tether cord, so they can spend countless hours riding the waves. And the best part? You can kick back and relax in the massage area while keeping an eye on them to ensure that they’re safe.

Canoeing, Kayaking, or Paddle Boarding

Another great feature of the Jacuzzi® swim spa is its wide channel design. It’s perfect for rowing-style water sports like kayaking and paddleboarding. If you have a boat or a board, grab an oar or two, adjust the speed and get the little ones to start rowing. We recommend remaining seated on the paddleboard as standing can be dangerous.


To play Submarine you will need two large plastic cups. The object of the game is for each player to pour water into the floating cup without it sinking to the bottom of the swim spa. First, shut down the power of your jets in your swim spa. Next, take a cup and set it in the middle of your swim spa so that it floats and bobs around you. Fill your second cup with water and instruct each player to take turns pouring water into the floating cup for two seconds. Give each person a chance to pour. Whoever sinks the cup on their turn to pour loses.

Ping Pong Outbreak

Kids of all ages will love ping pong outbreak because it’s like playing tag, but with ping pong balls. Start with up to five ping pong balls in the swim spa. The goal is to avoid being touched by any of the balls. Players can move around to avoid being touched, however, their feet must stay on the swim spa floor. If a ball touches a player, they must get out of the swim spa. To take the game up a notch, why not throw in another ball each time a player gets out?


Of course, you can always experiment by inventing your own games or trying a combination of the above with other popular swimming games such as Marco polo and musical swim chairs. The more you experiment; the more interesting your kid’s swim spa sessions will be.
