Water Games and Activities For Kids
Sponge Relay Race :
To play this game you would first need an open area. Also arrange a few buckets and sponge pieces. As the name itself suggests this is a relay race to be played with sponge pieces . As we all know sponge can carry water well and so we will use it for the relay race in this game. To start with this game you will need two empty jars, two buckets filled with water, and two large sponges. You can use the car wash sponges to play this game in your kitty party. Before you start, form two teams. Each team will make a line next to a bucket filled with colored water. Host will blow the whistle and the game starts. When the game starts, have the first member of each team put the sponge in the colored water in the bucket, put it on their head, and run towards a jar at the other end of the playing area. Squeeze the water into the jar and run back. Continue on with the rest of the players. The first team who fill the jar to overflowing wins. Image Credit : The Shopping Mama.
Blindfold Water Play : to play this water game in your kid’s birthday party you might need an open space as this game may spill water. As I said above, divide your kitty members into teams to play this game. Now make the teams sit in a line with eye blindfolded. Yes I said, blindfold all the members of a team and make them sit in a line behind each other. It will be a good idea to make them sit on floor for this game.
Before you blindfold the members give them a glass each. A plastic disposable tumbler may do. Keep one water filled bucket ahead the line and one empty bucket behind the line. Now what the players have to do is to – pass the water from the filled bucket to the empty bucket using the glasses. The member sitting first will fill the glass from the bucket and pour it in the glass of second member, the second member will then pour it to the third member’s glass and so on. The funny part in this game is that all the members are blindfolded and no one will know that they are pouring the water in the glass or spilling it. The team which fills the empty bucket first will be the winner. You can either keep the time limit and check the amount of water filled in the empty bucket or change it accordingly. The team can set their signs before the game begins.
Ball blast : For this water game you can use ropes to create a circle or square on your lawn. Then keep some balls of varying sizes and weights inside. Give every child a hose and challenge them to push the balls out with the water in less than a minute. The child who takes the minimum time will be the winner.
Pop Up The Water Balloon: For this game you have to make quite a few numbers of water balloon. When you are ready with all your water balloons, drop them all in a big tub filled with colored water. Now ask the children to sit in the tub and burst the water balloons by sitting over them. To keep a count the children must keep the popped balloon in their hand. The child with maximum popped balloons will be the winner of this game.
Music Sprinklers : It is one of the best water games and activities for kids as kids love dancing in water. For this game you might need a lawn sprinkler and of course a person to manage the faucet. When the game begins, turn off the sprinkler and start the music. Kids will have to move around the sprinkler area till the music runs. When music stops, children have to freeze on their positions and then you start the sprinkler. Keep it ON for a few seconds or a minute and the children who move will be out of the game.
