A goofy and wet ice-breaker and team building relay for a hot

A black marker pen.
Two long ropes for the start and finish lines.
For each team:
An empty 500ml plastic cold-drink bottle.
A bowl (any size) of water.
For each team member:
A teaspoon or desert spoon.
All kids must wear old clothes!
Draw a fill-line 25mm above the base of each bottle.
Grades 3 - 8 (9 to 14 years).

Divide the children into teams and line them up at a starting point.
Place a bowl of water next to the first person of each team.
One member from each team (the "Drip-Drop") lies down at

arms parallel to the ground, and then drop their spoonful of water
into the bottle from that height!
They then lie down and take the place of the "Drip-Drop" and hold the
bottle on their foreheads. The previous "Drip-Drop" races to
the end of their team's line. The next first-in-line person
then scoops up a spoonful of water and runs as before. The
relay continues until the winning team fills their bottle to the
