Apple Bobbing Outdoor Party Game

by Grace Dailey
(California)

Get a barrel full of ice cold water. Then get 5-12 apples and put them in the barrel. They will then float. Form a line behind the barrel. The first person in line comes up to the barrel, gets down on there hands and knees (it all really depends on the height of the barrel), puts their face in the cold water and tries to pick up an apple, only using their teeth.

Once the person in line is done, either they have gotten an apple, or their face is too cold to do it any longer, it is the turn of the next person in line. If a person gets an apple they get a point and they can eat the apple (if of course they'd like to). At the end of the game, whoever gets the most apples wins.

Sponge Outdoor Party Race

by Moo
(Michigan 49103)

All you need is for this outdoor sponge race is 4 buckets and 2 sponges.

Fill the 2 buckets with water and put them in one spot.

Take the other 2 buckets and put them in front of the bucket filled with water but put it far away.

How to play:

You divide the groups into 2 and tell them to line up. Give the 2 groups each a sponge and they have to soak the sponge and run to the other bucket that doesn't have water and squeeze the water out. They then need to run back to their teammates and give them the sponge, each teammate repeats this.

This goes on and on until all the water in the bucket is gone, the first team to finish up all their water is the winning team!

Jail Wave Outdoor Party Game

by Avery Groufanguiser
(Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania )

This game is a mixture of Hide-n-Seek with a twist.

Pick someone to be IT. Let them set the timer for 3 to 4 minutes while the rest of the people hide. After the time is up IT has to try and find the hiders. After IT has found them they are sent to "jail" (any high elevated place will do, we used a trampoline). The person found has to stay in jail till a person who is still in hiding waves at them then they are free to go. But... if IT sees them getting away they are allowed to call them back to jail.

The game ends when IT has all the people in jail.
NO PUPPY GUARDING! (when a person guards a "safe" or "base" spot during a game of tag, forcing the person at the base to get tagged when they come out).

Water Baseball

by Paulette Thomas
(North Chicago, Ill.)

Start out with four teams. With five kids per team. Each team has the same amount of water ballons in a bucket, filled with a little water to prevent balloons from popping. We use about 120 water balloons divided equally amoung teams. (made ahead of time) You will also need four tennis rackets or plastic bats. I like using tennis rackets, because even small kids can hit the balloons. Each team has an adult tosser. The adult tosses the balloon to the first hitter. The hitter bats at the water balloon tring to hit it and score. Then he/she passes the racket to the next player, who tries to score. The team that finishes first and with the most hits wins. The adult tosser keeps score. Of course eveyone is soaked!

Colors

by Nicole D.
(Sacramento, CA)

in the pool one person has to be it. they stand on the edge of the pool (or diving board). the other people then float with their hand on the wall and think of a color. when all the players are ready then the person who is it names colors. if the person who is it says one of the players color, then they have to swim to the other side of the pool. if the person who is it turns around and sees them swimming then he/she tries to get them before they touch the other side of the pool. if the person who is it taggs the person who was swimming then that person is it and the game resets.

You will need a Ball, 2 or more people and a place where nothing can get broken or damaged.

You have a person who is IT with the ball the person who is IT turns away for 3 seconds while the people who are not IT run as far as they can.

When the person who is IT turns around the people who ran away stop and the person who is IT tries to hit someone with the ball. If he hits someone that person is on D. Pass the ball to the person who got hit, now he tries to throw it at someone so on so fourth.

If IT missed, he's on D the first person who spells out DONKEY loses and you keep on playing until other people spell donkey and they last person left is the winner!
