This game is a wet version of Duck, Duck, Goose. Have kids sit in
a circle on the ground and choose one child to be the “Gardener.”
The Gardener taps kids on the head as he or she says, “Seed!” When
the Gardener says, “Grow!” and sprinkles a child’s head with the
watering can, the Gardener puts down the can and runs from the
selected child. If the Gardener is caught, he or she starts over.
If the Gardener makes it to the empty spot, the child who was
sprinkled gets to be the Gardener.
