With many people going on staycations instead of vacations this summer, I am seeing a trend of above ground pools selling out at stores. People will want to be able to cool off in their own pool instead of going to public pools. My husband did just that – we bought the kids a small above ground pool for our backyard.

As a school teacher, I have my summers off to do two of my favorite things – relax and read a good book. I love the the lazy summer days. We stay up late watching movies together, sleep in, and swim most afternoons.

Here are the 9 hot pool toys for kids. This will keep them busy this summer.

Pool days are always more fun when the kids have entertaining pool toys for kids to keep them busy.

I usually only buy (1) pool toy at a time for a reward for book reading per child. I refuse to allow my kids to be on electronics all day. Yes, I’m one of those meanies! This encourages my children to read more during the day while still enjoying physical activities. It’s a win for all.
