 Wet-Noodle Relay:  It’s relay time!  Who will be the winner of this drenching duel?  Pool Noodles will be affixed with cups that will hold water during this saturating good time.  Participants will be divided into groups and the relay winner will have the most water in their cup at the finish line!

 Water Balloon Battleship:  No time to dry out, we battle till the end!


Participants will be divided into teams, separated with a divider that hides their chosen position in the grass and given a water balloon.  Then the leader yells, “Fire” the battle begins and water balloons are launched from your location  any player hit with a water balloon is out, while anyone who remains unscathed will receive another balloon for combat.  You could be the Champion!


Dress to get wet and SOAK up a good time!!!
