Tonight was the finale of our Wednesday night church services before summer break. We had a big "Family Fun Night" with hot dogs, chips & ice cream sundaes. The younger kids performed skits they've been working on, AND I planned a bunch of games for everyone to play.
I decided to theme all the games around water. Unfortunately our warmer weather earlier in the day turned breezy & a bit chilly by evening, so the water wasn't so much refreshing as it was shocking. But still, the games must go on...
(First I divided everyone into 4 teams.)
Wet Sponge Relay
Basically, a small kiddie-sized plastic pool is filled with water AND ice AND marbles. The 4 contestants have to stand in the freezing cold water &, with their toes, fish out the marbles & drop them in a pitcher designated for their team. Whoever collects the most marbles in their container in 2 minutes, wins! We played again where 2 people from each team participated & they had only ONE minute to get their marbles.
Earlier in the day I froze 4 shirts in four Gallon-sized ziploc bags. It wasn't as frozen as I had hoped. I should have frozen them the night before.
