Water Balloon Relay Game

Print Friendly


If kids don’t get along well in this game, they’ll find themselves soaked.

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:11

You’ll Need: Water balloons, traffic cones, and a Bible

Form teams of six to 10. Have team members stand behind a line and form pairs within their teams. Set a cone about 20 feet away from each team’s line, and set a bucket of water balloons next to each team. Have partners stand back to back with a water balloon between them. Pairs run down to their team’s cone and back without dropping or breaking the water balloon. If the balloon breaks, kids start over with a new balloon.
