Interactive Story: A Summer Pool Party


On this hot and sunny day in Honeysuckle Hollow, your Li’l Woodzeez friends are having a pool party. You’re invited to swim, play, and snack with them all day long. The weather is simply perfect for playing in the water! Will you join Lizz, Lila, Kya and Humphrey? You will?! Let’s dive right in!

First things first: a pool party calls for a swimsuit. Your parents have loaded your backpack with sunscreen, a bottle of water, and a cozy towel; all you need to do to is choose your gear.

What does your swimsuit look like?

  1. A bright, yellow shirt, green polka dot shorts, and a pair of water wings.
  2. A blue sun suit dotted with octopus, sharks, and fish. Animals rock!
  3. A sporty swimsuit with a pair of goggles, a snorkel, and flippers.
  4. A suit covered in rainbows, because you have no favorite color!

Wow, that outfit sure makes a splash!

Lila the monkey and Humphrey the hippo jump right into the pool, as soon as you arrive. The water looks so refreshing on this hot summer day! Kya the lioness and Lizz the elephant grab a few pool toys, then they ask you to join them as they tiptoe into the water.

How will you play with your friends in the pool?

  1. Marco Polo! You love a good ol’ game of tag.
  2. Take (careful) turns doing cannon balls! You wonder who can make the biggest splash.
  3. See how many of you can fit on one pool floaty at a time. The more, the merrier!
  4. Build an obstacle course of pool noodles, sinking toys, and floaties. You’ll have epic races!

Good thinking! Time flies as you play with your friends in the water, splashing, laughing, and blowing bubbles all through the morning. Lila hops out of the pool to get a cold drink. She says that her parents can get you something, too, to keep cool and hydrated.

Which refreshing drink would you like to have?

  1. Freshly squeezed lemonade. A summer classic!
  2. A red, strawberry slushy. What a treat!
  3. Ice-cold water. Who doesn’t love some good H2O?
  4. Iced tea. It’s so sweet and refreshing!

Ahh… Delicious! There’s nothing like a cold drink to help you beat the heat. You begin to relax as you sit by the pool and take a few sips. But all that playtime in the water has you working up an appetite! It’s time to get into the shade and have some food.

What will you and your friends have for lunch?

  1. Veggie dogs, as well as sliced cucumbers and baby carrots.
  2. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, with or without bananas.
  3. Cheese pizza, Caesar salad, and purple grapes.
  4. Macaroni salad with a side of mixed greens and watermelon.

Excellent choice!

Sometime after your meal, you and your buddies head back into the pool for more aquatic adventures. What a great way to spend a summer day! You hear that it will be sunny again tomorrow – and you’re invited to come back! See you next time.
