The beach ball is one of the most popular items at the beach. Of course, most of them can be played at the pool or in your backyard. It's great to toss around, bounce with, and throw at other people in the water. If you're looking for some fun games to play with your friends or family at the beach, here are some of the best beach ball games to play.

Beach Ball Volleyball

    This is a classic game that can be played on the sand or in the water. All you have to do is place a volleyball net between two players and hit the ball over the net. If you do not have a net, no problem! Just lay a rope on the ground or float a pool noodle in the water to use as a pretend net. Try changing up the game—can you hit the ball over the net with something other than your hands? Try using your head or your feet!

Keep It Up

    For preschoolers and younger kids, try keeping the beach ball in the air. How many times can you hit it in a row without it falling to the ground?

Chase It

    Another favorite of the younger crowd is to chase the beach ball in the waves. Of course, supervise the kids closely, but it is fun to follow the beach ball as it is tossed around in the whitewater. If you do not want the kids in the water, just kick and chase the ball.
