The Water Game is one of the cool summer games for kids, and one of the very fun kids outdoor party games.
This is a good agility activity. It gets the kids up and moving.
Players want to run as fast as they can to beat the other team.
Begin by making starting and finish lines 25 feet apart.
Divide the players into 2 teams with the same number of players.
Each team's players line up behind the starting line.
Put a bowl with 6 cups of water at the starting line for each team.
Put an empty bowl at the finish line for each team. The bowls for each team should have the same amount of water.
The first player on each team holds a paper cup.
After hearing, "Ready, set, GO!" the first player on each team scoops water into his cup then runs to the finish line where he dumps his water in the bowl.
He then runs back to the starting line and hands the cup to the next runner.
Play continues until all the water in one team's bowl has been transferred to the bowl at the finish line. That team is the winner.
Depending on the kids' ages, you can use dixie cups or 8, 10, 12 or 16 ounce cups.
The smaller the cups, the longer the race will be.
