Bottoms Up Relay

Purpose:

Another goofy and wet ice-breaker and team-building relay for a hot day in summer!

Materials Needed:

Two long ropes for the start and finish lines.
For each team:
   An empty 500ml plastic cold-drink bottle.
   5-litre bucket of water.
   2-litre plastic dish or basin.
   All kids must wear old clothes!

Age Group:

Grades 3 - 8 (9 to 14 years).

 

 
Please take the bottle!

The Relay Competition:

Divide the children into teams of seven and line them up at a starting point with the bucket of water at the last person's feet.  On your start signal, the last player in line fills his cold-drink bottle with water from the bucket, sticks his palm over the bottle opening, and turns it upside down and passes it upside down to the next player.

Each player must keep the bottle upside down and use only their palms to keep the water in.  When the bottle reaches the first player, he runs and pours the water into the dish at the finish line.  He then runs to the back of the line where he refills the bottle, and starts it down the line of kids again.  The first team to fill their dish wins.

Have fun!
