A fun way for both kids and adults to cool off in warm weather is with water guns. Forget everything you think you know about water blasters and consider the many different style options available. Enjoy some old-fashioned outdoor fun, keep your family off electronic devices, and have a blast spraying each other with water.
What to Look for in Water Blasters
When shopping for your water gun of choice, consider how much water the tanks can hold and how far the water can blast. There are options for both close and further range. Another choice is the material the water guns are made from, be it plastic or even foam. Last but not least, consider the way the water gun needs to be reloaded.
