Balancing Water on Heads

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


In African countries, buckets of water are traditionally carried on heads. This game challenges cubs to carry cups on their heads




Cubs line up in their sixes for a relay race. They have to balance a cup on their head. They can use a bean bag to help. If done outside the cup could contain water. They have to take it in turns to get to the far end of the room and back without dropping the cup. One point is awarded for getting the cup across the room without dropping it.
