Spit in the Bucket

An active water game for large groups

How To Play Spit in the Bucket

Materials Needed

two identical buckets, several water bottles with squirt spout.

This game can get kind of gross, if people are squeamish about saliva. Set up two buckets on chairs on one end of the room and several squirt bottles filled with water on the other end of the room. Form two teams and have them line up behind the two chairs.

This is a relay race. The players run to the water bottles, squirt as much water in their mouths as they can, then run back to the bucket and spit in it. At the moment the player spits into the bucket, the next player can run for the water bottle. Give a time limit, depending on the size of your group. The team with the most water/saliva in the bucket at the time limit wins.

It's actually pretty hard to run with your mouth full of water and people making you laugh. Eventually, one kid is bound to spray their team. When we played, the floor got wet and one kid skidded and crashed into the chair holding the bucket. It was nasty.
