Water Colors

One person stands outside of the pool, with their back towards the water. Everyone else stands along that same edge of the pool (in the water) and thinks of a color. When everyone is ready the person standing outside of the pool shouts out different colors. When your color is called you have to swim across the pool. When the person standing outside the pool thinks someone is swimming they turn around and jump in and tag the swimmers before they reach the other side. If the swimmer gets tagged they are the new person to stand outside of the pool.

Note: Every time the person turns around and nobody is swimming or they didn't tag the person, they take one step further away from the pool.
