Water Bottle Problem

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ

Description

Try to knock over the water bottle without touching it. There is no right answer!

Resources

Water bottle (filled)
Straws (as many lodges/sixes/patrols as you have)
Feathers
Paperclips
Absorbtion mats (for soaking up water if they manage to knock over the full water bottle)
Any other helpful/unhelpful object(s)

Instructions

Place a relatively full water bottle on top of a mat (with the lid off). Place around it the random objects, some that are helpful and some that are not.
The object of the task is to knock over the water bottle without touching it.
Only 1 person can try to knock it over at a time.
There is no right way of doing it, they have to use their imagination....or take the obvious route and drink the water with the straw then blow the bottle over....
Set a time limit for a more competitive edge.
