The first game is have a ball. Being that there are many cheap balls, you will be able to create a game that will keep children amused for hours. Here you will mark a square or a circle on your lawn and place balls of various weight and sizes within the rope boundary. Then, give them a garden hose and ask them to push the balls outside of the rope in less than 60 seconds using the water stream from the pipe. When you have more than one kid you can turn it into competition which is the end will make all of them soaked and laughing.
In addition, there is also a water jump. One good thing with this game is that it helps kids to improve their coordination and it is good for all ages. Where you will have to choose one individual to operate a garden hose. Then use a strong stream of water and make the kids to snake the hose back and forth under the players’ feet while each participant tries to jump over it. In addition, you should increase the frequency depending with the age of the kids. The game ends with the participant with the driest feet becoming the winner.
Besides, there is also backyard Bathtime. It is essential to note that this game is great for all ages as well as infants. Start by grabbing your kiddie pool and fill it with bath toys and bubbles. Then let the baby enjoy an outdoor bath experience. You should be patient with older kids because, in the beginning, they will not enjoy this though they will come to like it.
The next game is Tag with a Twist. You should tell your kids to play tag with a twist instead of chaotic water gun fights. Beside, this is essential when you don’t have enough water guns for everyone. Here only one person will get the gun and tag other players using the squirt gin instead of using their hands.
In addition, we have sponge splash. One thing that you need to know is that this game needs a little more setup than the previous ones. Here you will need at least two buckets per team and one sponge each. Remember that this is a vital this team building activity which can be used to teach valuable lessons during a series of VBS water games. Make sure that you fill one bucket with water and the other one to remain dry for each team. The next thing is to give them a sponge and ask them to transfer all the water from the full bucket to empty one using a sponge. Here the first team to fill the bucket wins.
