10. Swim Noodles
If you have to ask what a swim noodle is than you haven’t been to a pool in the past few years. These are the hollow foam “sticks” in bright colors you see kids carrying around. You can wrap them around yourself to float. You can string them together with tubes to make a human tube train. You can also fill them & blow the water out the other end to make a huge water gun. They are cheap so grab a few.
9. Inflatable Balls & Squishy Balls
Balls for the pool are great for toddlers. Whether they are inflatable, squishy or made of foam your kids will love them. If you want a few of the best pool toys for toddlers you should find a few different balls to let your kids play with.
8. Paint Brushes
Paint brushes are not just for painting houses. I’ve watched kids play for hours painting the edges & decks of a pool with water. On hot summer days, by the time they get through with one bucket of water, the place they started is already dry. No problem. They can go back & paint it again. You don’t need expensive brushes, any will do. Get some wide & some narrow for your little toddler artist.
7. Water Guns & Water Cannons
Water guns & water cannons are not my favorite. But every little kid at the pool knows exactly what to do when they find a water gun. You can find all sorts of water guns these days. I prefer the kind you suck the water up & then shoot it out. This way you don’t have to wait to fill water through a tiny hole. Some water guns are battery operated. I say that’s not needed. The best pool toys for toddlers surely include a few water guns.
Inflatable inner tubes are certainly one of the best pool toys for toddlers. Tubes help them explore the deeper parts of the pool & help keep them warmer & dryer in the sun if it’s cooler out without leaving the pool. For a toddler, an inner tube is like having their own car to travel around in. Be sure to get one for each kid. You don’t want them fighting over the same tube.
