How to Play Marco Polo

By Contributor

This swimming pool game is fun for kids of all ages.


Get in the pool.

Close your eyes and call out "Marco."

Listen for the other players to answer with "Polo."

Swim with your eyes closed in the direction of a voice.

Call out "Marco" several more times if you like, always waiting to hear "Polo" in response.

Tag any player, and you are no longer Marco.

The Other Players

Get in the pool.

Answer "Polo" every time you hear the word "Marco."

Swim away from Marco to avoid being tagged.

Become Marco the instant you are tagged.
