Who is Aquaman and why should he be a featured hero at your superhero reunion or party?
Aquaman is the king of all things aqua. He can breathe underwater, swim at tremendous speeds, and telepathically communicate with sea life. Being able to withstand ocean depths, he gets bonus points on land with his superhuman strength, enhanced senses, and nearly impenetrable skin.
I never knew there was a superhero named Aquaman but I’ve got to tell you- if you’re around a pool or lake or some other water source, Aquaman gives endless opportunities for water competitions and games. Try some of our favorite Aquaman training activities:
Aquaman Treasure Hunt
Collect a bunch of pennies, nickels and other coins and throw them into the pool. Be sure to throw coins in different depths of the pool to accommodate all swim skill levels. Line kids up on the side of the pool and on the word go they jump into the pol and collect as many coins as possible. When all the coins are found, count them and add up the value. The one with the most money is the winner.
Aquaman Underwater Training
Participants line up on one side of the pool, On the word “go” they jump into the pool and swim as far as they can under water. Depending on the size of the pool and the abilities of the swimmers, they may be able to swim more than one lap.
Aquaman Enhanced Senses Training
Use a pint water bottle with a white cap and filled it with water from the pool. Line the swimmers up on one side of the pool facing away from it. When they hear the bottle hit the water they can jump in and begin hunting for it. The swimmer that finds the bottle is the winner. You can play this game over and over.
Of course swimming races are fun and since Aquaman can swim at tremendous speeds, a real natural for your superhero training.
