April Showers - Splash Day Competition

(Family Fun Day - Community Outreach)

Family Fun Day

April Showers - Splash Day


Facebook Community Competition

An April Showers - Splash Day Competition is an easy and fun way to encourage family time.

1. Create a flyer (sample at the bottom of this page...download, and edit if you choose)

2. Pass out your flyers to each child

3. Promote your event on the big screen, Facebook, Instagram...however you communicate with your families.

4. Purchase prizes for the winner.

5. Any time that rain is in the forecast, re-post or re-share your information...add some fun comments to keep the kids excited. "Rain in the forecast tonight...will we be splashing tomorrow???" 

6. When the rain begins...re-post or re-share your information again.

7. Rain begins...Family fun time begins! Families grab their rain boots...take lots of fun family splash pics...and submits 1-2 pics to you via text (or whatever method you choose)

8. Winner is chosen

9. Prizes are awarded

10. All pics are posted on Facebook. Don't forget to take the winner's pics with their prizes.

Challenge your entire community...as well as surrounding communities to an "April Showers" Splash Competition. 


  • Pass out flyers to your church families.

  • Post Competition on your Facebook Page.

  • Do a Facebook blast...which simply means that everyone shares your Facebook post at the same exact time. During announcements would be a great time to have everyone pull out their phones and share...if allowed.

  • Ask your church members to share your Facebook post with family and friends.

  • Post your flyer on all community Facebook pages.

  • Purchase prizes... a basket (or two...or even three...if you want to pass out first, second and third place prizes) filled with "rainy day" items is a great gift idea. Note: I have found that a 5-gallon bucket works great as an alternative to a basket...they come in many colors and cost only $2-3 at Wal-Mart) 

  • Re-share your flyer any time that rain is in the forecast...to remind people of the splash competition.

  • Post information on starting time, deadline, photo submission info, etc on Facebook

  • Once the submission deadline has expired (April 30th), select a winner or post each submission on your Facebook page, give each entry a number, invite people to vote on their favorite splash pics.

  • Post the winner's names on-line. 

  • Winners will pick up their prize at the church. Make sure to take their pics with their prizes and post on-line. 

  • Make sure to thank each of your entries and invite them to church on Sunday. 

  • Consider creating a short photo video or a slide show of the splash pics to share before worship.

  • If you come up with some new ideas that will make this event even better...please share them with me @ 479-619-9932 or arleneclark@sbcglobal.net

  • Please share some pics from your event...I would love to see all of the fun sledding family time. 

  • This event can be tailor-made to fit your church and your community.

  • Be creative and have fun!
