Water Race
Sent in by: Aanya of Eugene, OR

Bring on the bucket brigade!

This game is for 6 or more players and should be played outside.

To play, you need 2 buckets for each team and one cup for each player.

Split into two even teams. Each team stands in a line, with a bucket of water in front of the first person and an empty bucket in back of the last person.

On the word "go," the first person in each line puts her cup into the bucket and fills it with water. Then she turns around and dumps the water into the cup of the person behind her.

This continues down the line. The last person empties his cup into the bucket.

As soon as the first person in line has emptied her cup, she can dip it into the bucket again and dump it into the cup of the person behind her.

After 45 seconds, the team with the most water in the bucket at the end of their line is the winner.
