    Play outside, best in swim suits.

    Get two kitchen-sized garbage cans, two kid-sized buckets (all plastic), and two tennis balls. Use a kid-pool as the water source and fill it with water. (and keep filling it with a hose as the game goes on).
    Randomly divide the kids into two teams perhaps by pulling names out of a hat. DON’T let a captain of each team pick the members. It’s always hurtful to be last.
    Put one tennis ball in each garbage container and put the containers a distance from the pool; 10-20 feet depending on the age and size of the kids.
    The game: the two teams line up. On “go”, the first person fills his/her bucket from the pool and runs across the yard and pours the bucketful into his/her team’s garbage container. The kid passes the bucket to the next child on his/her team and he/she does the next fill and run and pour.
    The tennis balls will rise as the garbage cans fill up.
    The first tennis ball to fall out of the top (because the garbage can is full) determines the winner!
    If somebody’s garbage can falls over….oh well….they place it upright and keep trying! Everyone has fun, gets wet, gets to yell encouragement and sometimes they want to play again. 🙂
