So put out a deck of cards for any guests who’d rather stay on land. You could also put out some less conventional card games, like tarot cards, and bring in a fortune teller to entertain guests or you can have a scavenger hunt inside a pool.

Plenty of Pool Floats
Try not just 1, but say, 5 pool floats, with some inflatable beach balls on the side. The more the merrier. Pick bright and oversized floaties like flamingos, swans and donuts. Add mini donut-shaped drink holder floaties so guests can sip and sunbathe at the same time.
