Get wet games for a hot summers day.
2 buckets and 1 jumbo sponge per team and water - Towels and a change of clothes - maybe!!!
Over and Under
Similar to the game where you pass a ball over head then between legs but instead of a ball a wet sponge is used and dunked on water everytime it gets back to the front of the line.
Fill the Bucket (1)
player 1 soakes sponge runs to empty bucket at other end of playing area and squeezes out all the water into empty bucket. Runs back and hands sponge to next player who repeats above. Each player goes twice. Winning team is the one with the most water in the bucket.
Fill the Bucket (2)
Players stand in a line between 2 buckets at either end of the playing area. Player 1 (nearest full bucket) dunks sponge and passes to next player who passes on etc until sponge reaches other bucket where sponge is rung out. Player runs to start dunks sponge in bucket and above is repeated until all players back to start position.
Teams face each other accross playing area. Player 1 from each team dunks sponge and throws to other team. If sponge is caught catching team wins a point. Repeat until water runs out.
