What you need: You will need four kiddie pools or large buckets, and a regular-sized bucket for each player.

How to play: Divide kids into two teams, and line them up from the starting line to the finish line. You will place a kiddie pool or large bucket filled with water at the starting line for each team, and an empty kiddie pool or large bucket at the finish line for each team. Give each player a bucket.

The rules: The player at the starting line will fill his bucket from the water source and then pour his bucket into the next player's bucket. This continues down the line until the last player pours his bucket into the kiddie pool or large bucket at the finish line.

How to win: The first team to fill their pool or bucket at the finish line wins.

What else you need to know: Kids will get excited playing this game, trying to go as fast as they can, which will result in lots of spilling water on everyone. Great for a hot day!
