What you need: a swimming noddle, bases, a whiffle ball, water hose.

Here’s a fun summer game that not only will engage your teens but cool them off on a hot summer day. Play the game as you would softball, but instead of using a bat use a swimming pool noodle as the substitute.

Hint: the longer and more pliable the noodle, the more difficult it is to hit the whiffle ball. The run to first base also can be used to cool down as a sprinkler head or a volunteer can be used to spray the first base line.
