Game #1 

There’s a hole in my bucket

Supplies:

2 identical pitcher’s with holes drilled in the sides

2 identical clear plastic totes – with a "fill line" marked on the side. I use blue painters tape to mark the fill line

2 folding chairs

2 kiddy pools filled with water

2 water hoses – hooked up and ready to spray kids as they run past

 

 

Instructions

Place two folding chairs side by side (10' apart) on one end of the playing area.

Place the two kiddy pools on the opposite end of the playing area. (10' apart) You choose the playing field distance...50' is a good distance.

Divide the kids into two teams and have them stand in two lines (one behind the other). Each line will start on the outer side of the two chairs.

Select one person from each team to sit in the two chairs. (Make sure to select someone who does not mind water being poured over their head...you will see why later)

Place one plastic tote in each of their laps. (the sitting team members)

Hand a pitcher (with holes)  to the first person in each line (each team).

The object of the game is to be the first team to fill their plastic tote (to the fill line)

On "GO" the first person will run to the pool, dip the leaky pitcher into the pool and then place the leaky pitcher on top of their head.

They must run to the plastic tote, lean over and pour the water into the tote (without taking it off of their head)

They will then hand the pitcher to the next person in line.

The first team to fill their tote wins.

The winning team will pick up their tote full of water and pour it onto the "chair" person's head.

Then the other team gets to pick up their tote and pour it over their "chair" person's head.

New "chair" person is selected and the game continues until the kids get tired of playing.

GAME #14

Chip Away

NOTE: In order to make a giant block of ice, you will need to start approx. 2 weeks in advance. Block will be frozen in stages so that there will be prizes throughout the block of ice.

Large Tub or tote

Water

Freezer space

Time: Approx. 2 weeks (to freeze ice)

Plastic frogs (or any plastic prizes that you would like to freeze inside of your block of ice)

Squirt guns (To use to help melt the ice away and win a prize)

Plastic knives (To chip ice away)

 

To create your giant block of ice, you will need a large tub or tote…make sure that the container that you use is larger on the top than on the bottom or you will not be able to remove your block of ice from the container.

Start by adding 3-4” of water in your tub.

Add a few plastic frogs

Freeze for 2 days.

After you have waited 2 days, add an additional 3-4” of water and a few more frogs.

Freeze for 2 more days.

Continue until your tub is full!

 

You set your own rules….kids can chip ice away with the plastic knives or use the squirt guns to melt the ice away.

Make sure to set the ice block in a sunny spot so that the sun will help with the ice melting too.

If you choose, you can bring the water hose around and give it a few squirts to help melt the ice as well.
