Bucket Brigade

Divide children into 2 teams. Fill a child size pool with water at one end and place 2 empty buckets (one bucket for each team) at the finish line. Have each team stand in a line between the pool and their team’s empty bucket. Give each child a small cup. On the word “Go!” the first player fills up his or her cup in the pool and pours the water into the cup of the child standing next to them. The players continue passing the water from teammate to teammate with the cups until the last in line pours the water into the bucket.  Teamwork is a must to win this game.  Players work together to try and transfer as much of the water as they can as quickly as they can.  The first team to fill their bucket entirely, or the team who has the most amount of water at the end of a time limit, wins the race.
