Physical Activity
The weather is heating up, so let’s have some fun with water! Today’s activity is fun to do with others – so grab some siblings, neighbors, or parents and get ready to get active…and wet!
Water Relay
You’ll needed: 2 buckets per team, 1 small towel or an old t-shirt

  1. Divide participants between two teams
  2. Fill one bucket with water for each team; place it at the beginning line where you’ll start the game
  3. Place the empty bucket at the end line, about 100 yards from your starting line. Mark the bucket with a fill line near the top.
  4. Place the towel or t-shirt in the full bucket of water
  5. On “go” the first person on each team will grab the soaked towel, run to the other side and wring it out into the empty bucket.
  6. When the water is deposited in the bucket, the participant will carry the towel/t-shirt back to the starting line and drops it back into the water bucket.
  7. The next person in line repeats the process. The first team to fill the empty bucket with water (to the fill line) is the winner!
